The brain-specific S-100 protein was localized at the electron microscopic level in the anterior and posterior pituitary gland of adult rat by indirect immunoperoxidase histology. The protein was found in the stellate cells of the pars distalis and tuberalis, in the marginal cells that line the hypophyseal cleft and in the glia-like cells, the pituicytes,(More)
alpha-Bungarotoxin (alpha-BuTX) has been used as a marker for studying the production of alpha-bungarotoxin-acetylcholine receptors (alpha-BuTX-AChRs) in explants of chick embryo sympathetic ganglia cultured in vitro. New alpha-BuTX-AChRs appear rapidly in the explants after blocking of the pre-existent ones with the toxin (40% of the total receptors at 3(More)
Within cerebral cortex synaptosomes, S-100 protein can be recovered in two forms: soluble and membrane-bound. Synaptosomal S-100 is mainly a soluble protein (85 percent). The membrane-bound S-100 is differently distributed in the synaptosomal membranes, intraterminal mitochondria, and synaptic vesicles. S-100 binds to a specific receptor. The binding is(More)
We report on advances in the electrochemical deposition of indium (In) on molybdenum foil that enables deposition of electronic-grade purity, continuous films with thickness in the micron range. The desired In film morphology is obtained from an InCl 3 aqueous bath by using a high current density of 250 mA/cm 2 and a low deposition-bath temperature of −5 •(More)
alpha-Bungarotoxin (alpha-BuTX) binds in a saturable and practically irreversible fashion to membrane-associated receptors in the ciliary ganglion of the adult chick. The binding of toxin to receptors is competitively inhibited by nicotinic cholinergic ligands, and for these properties the receptors are regarded as acetylcholine receptors of the nicotinic(More)
