Nur-related 1 (Nurr1) and nerve growth factor inducible-B (NGFI-B) constitute closely related subgroups of the nuclear receptor superfamily. One to three hours after 4 mg/kg acute methamphetamine (METH) administration, the levels of Nurr1 mRNA were significantly higher in the prelimbic (PrL), primary motor (M1) and primary somatosensory (S1) cortices and(More)
Activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated protein (arc) is an immediate early gene (IEG) whose mRNA is targeted to dendrites of activated synapses. The present study investigated the expression of three IEGs, arc and two transcription factors (NGFI-B and Nurr 1), in regions of the brain of rats that were subjected to a single afterdischarge-inducing(More)
Wintering flower buds of cold hardy Rhododendron japonicum cooled slowly to subfreezing temperatures are known to undergo extraorgan freezing, whose mechanisms remain obscure. We revisited this material to demonstrate why bud scales freeze first in spite of their lower water content, why florets remain deeply supercooled and how seasonal adaptive responses(More)
