 Although peripheral nerves are used as guides in attempts to enhance regeneration in the central nervous system (CNS), surprisingly little is known about the interface that develops between the host tissue and the transplanted or implanted peripheral nerve. This study examines host-nerve interfaces following transplantation of segments of sciatic nerve(More)
This study examines a radiation-induced invasion and spread of Schwann cells into ventral gray regions of the lumbar spinal cord. The prevalence of these cells within the gray matter and the time course of their appearance in the ventral spinal cord is quite different from the pattern of Schwann cell development in dorsal spinal cord reported previously.(More)
A series of sulfonamides has been obtained by reacting sulfanilamide or 5-amino-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-sulfonamide with omega-chloroalkanoyl chlorides, followed by replacement of the omega-chlorine atom with secondary amines. Tails incorporating heterocyclic amines belonging to the morpholine, piperidine and piperazine ring systems have been attached to these(More)
Schwann cells develop within the ventral gray matter following exposure of lumbosacral spinal cords to x-rays in early postnatal rats. These ventral gray matter Schwann cell aggregates occurred in about 40% of the animals 8 or more weeks following irradiation. Light microscopically these cells appeared to be apposed to somata of large motor neurons, raising(More)
The synthesis, structure, spectroscopic and electro-spectrochemical properties of steric hindered Schiff-base ligand [N,N'-(3,4-benzophenon)-3,5-Bu(t)(2)-salicylaldimine (LH(2))] and its mononuclear Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Mn(II) and Fe(II) complexes are described in this work. The new dissymmetric steric hindered Schiff-base ligand containing a donor set(More)
A new series of Schiff base ligands (L1-L3) and their corresponding fluorine/phenyl boron hybrid complexes [LnBF2] and [LnBPh2] (n=1, 2 or 3) have been synthesized and well characterized by both analytical and spectroscopic methods. The Schiff base ligands and their corresponding fluorine/phenyl boron hybrid complexes have been characterized by NMR ((1)H,(More)
The synthesis, spectroscopic properties and in vitro cytotoxicity activity of a series of various salen-based triboron complexes have been designed and prepared from hemi-salen (L1 H3 -L4 H3 ) ligands and BF3 .Et2 O or BPh3 under simple reaction conditions. The hemi-salen (L1 H3 -L4 H3 ) ligands and their BF2 or BPh2 chelating triboron complexes were(More)
The title Schiff base compound, C15H17N3O2S, is non-planar with a dihedral angle of 69.88 (4)° between the planes of the benzene rings. In the crystal, pairs of N-H⋯N hydrogen bonds, between the sulfonamide nitro-gen-H atom and the azomethine N atom, link the mol-ecules into inversion dimers, forming R 2 (2)(16) ring motifs. These dimers are linked by N-H⋯O(More)
Previous studies in this laboratory have documented that the microglial environment of the immature spinal cord is altered by exposure to ionizing radiation. As a result, the lumbosacral spinal cord is markedly depleted of both oligodendrocytes and astrocytes, while leaving axons and the overall cytoarchitecture intact. The status of the microglia in the(More)
In this study, several sulfonamide derivatives, 4-(2-methylacetylamino)benzenesulfonamides were synthesized. Chemical structures of the derivatives were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, LC-MS-MS, UV-Vis, FTIR, photoluminescence and elemental analysis. Sulfanilamide was reacted with 2-bromopropionyl bromide, in the presence of pyridine, to form(More)
