A sexually dimorphic distribution of galanin (GAL)-like immunoreactive (ir) neurons and fibers was found in the brain and pituitary of goldfish. The rostralmost GAL-ir perikarya were found in the area ventralis telencephali pars supracommissuralis dorsal to the anterior commissure. In the diencephalon, there was several GAL-ir perikarya in the nucleus(More)
Several neurons from different nuclei give rise to descending spinal tracts and project to various levels in the spinal cord of goldfish, Carassius auratus. These were visualized by retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) administered to the bilaterally transected spinal cord at 6 levels, corresponding to 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th and 25th(More)
A central role for leukocytes in neointimal hyperplasia after arterial injury is suspected. However, the relative importance of neutrophils and monocytes in balloon or stent-induced injury are not well understood, and mechanistic targeting of leukocyte recruitment or function is crude. We determined the temporal and spatial distribution of different(More)
Seven hypothalamic nuclei and several isolated perikarya that send projections to the pituitary gland were identified following administration of cobaltous lysine or horseradish peroxidase (HRP) to severed hypophysial stalks of previously hypophysectomized catfish, Clarias batrachus. Retrogradely labelled neurons were identified in the nucleus preopticus(More)
Regeneration of descending supraspinal projections were identified in adult goldfish following administration of HRP to different levels of the spinal cord. While in the untreated normal fish 17 nuclei were shown to project into the spinal cord, only 11 of them seem to have participated in the process of regeneration. The nuclei whose axons regenerated(More)
The effect of cadmium chloride on the pituitary ACTH cells, gonadotropin- and thyrotropin-secreting cells, thyroid gland and gonads of the catfish, Clarias batrachus was investigated. Exposure to cadmium chloride caused a significant increase in the ACTH cell nuclear indices at day 7, 14 and 28, whereas the thyrotropin- and gonadotropin-secreting cells(More)
Using antisera directed against carp growth hormone-releasing hormone (cGHRH), the distribution of immunoreactive (ir) structures in the brain, pituitary, and pineal of the goldfish, Carassius auratus, was investigated. The antisera were produced in rabbits by administration of cGHRH(1-44)-NH(2) followed by cGHRH(1-45)-OH for different periods of time, both(More)
The changes in the nucleus preopticus (NPO) and nucleus lateralis tuberis (NLT) of the catfish, Clarias batrachus, were studied after electrical stimulation of the optic nerve. The aldehyde fuchsin (AF)-positive neurosecretory material from the entire NPO was depleted after a 10-min stimulation as revealed from the bulk-stained preparations and tissue(More)
The distribution of immunoreactive (ir) neurons containing corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is described in the brain of the tigerfrog, Rana tigrina. The olfactory bulb, medial pallium, nucleus of the diagonal band of Broca and medial area of the amygdala of the telencephalon showed ir-CRF perikarya. The anterior and ventromedial thalamic nuclei, and(More)
A Smarandachely k-constrained labeling of a graph G(V, E) is a bijective mapping f : V ∪ E → {1, 2, .., |V | + |E|} with the additional conditions that |f(u) − f(v)| ≥ k whenever uv ∈ E, |f(u)−f(uv)| ≥ k and |f(uv)−f(vw)| ≥ k whenever u 6= w, for an integer k ≥ 2. A graph G which admits a such labeling is called a Smarandachely k-constrained total graph,(More)
