The effect of the chlorotriazine herbicide, atrazine, on ovarian function was studied in Long-Evans hooded (LE-hooded) and Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. Atrazine was administered by gavage for 21 d to females displaying regular 4-d estrous cycles. In both strains, 75 mg/kg/d disrupted the 4-d ovarian cycle; however, no distinct alteration (i.e., irregular(More)
Two patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis proved postmortem had nystagmus in addition to typical clinical signs of motor neuron disease. The first patient had gaze-evoked rotatory nystagmus that was followed by horizontal nystagmus in the primary position with supranuclear paresis of horizontal gaze and upgaze. The second patient had rotatory(More)
This study sought to determine which tachykinin receptors were involved in contractile responses of circular muscle to tachykinins infused into isolated segments of canine ileum. Selective agonists for neurokinin receptors NK1 and NK2 as well as for substance P (SP) and neurokinin A (NKA) were infused, and selective antagonists against NK1, NK2, and NK3(More)
BACKGROUND Transoesophageal echocardiography has become a powerful tool in the diagnosis and management of children with congenital cardiac malformations. Unlike adults, children will not tolerate transoesophageal echocardiography under light sedation. This study was undertaken, therefore, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of deep sedation with propofol(More)
Dithiocarbamates, acting as inhibitors of catecholamine synthesis, have been reported to block ovulation in female rats following systemic administration by suppressing the neural noradrenergic signaling involved in triggering the ovulatory surge of luteinizing hormone. The ovaries also synthesize norepinephrine and receive noradrenergic input via(More)
The presence of noradrenergic neuronal innervation in the ovaries and cyclic alterations in ovarian noradrenaline suggest a role for such innervation in oocyte release. The current experiments evaluated the relationship between ovulation and alterations in ovarian concentrations of noradrenaline induced by unilateral, intrabursal administration of the(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of tachykinins on prostanoid production by the dog ileum and to characterize the tachykinin receptor(s) responsible for the principal eicosanoid shown to be released, 6-keto-PGF1 alpha. Substance P, the selective NK1 receptor agonist [Sar9,Met(O2)11]substance P and neurokinin A caused(More)
