Dopamine-agonist cabergoline (CB) reduces prolactin (PRL) secretion and tumor size in 80% of patients with prolactin-secreting adenomas (PRL-omas) by binding type 2 dopamine receptor (DRD2). The mechanisms responsible for resistance to CB remain largely unknown. To assess the association of DRD2 with sensitivity to CB, TaqI-A1/A2, TaqI-B1/B2, HphI-G/T and(More)
Although the Drosophila visual system has been described extensively, little is known about its olfactory system. A major reason for this discrepancy has been the lack of simple, reliable means of measuring response to airborne chemicals. This paper describes a jump response elicited by exposing Drosophila to chemical vapors. This behavior provides the(More)
Drosophila larvae are attracted to a wide variety of chemical stimuli. The olfactory response to ethyl acetate, a powerful attractant, was found to be surprisingly well conserved across a variety of different wild-type strains. Strain differences are documented, however, both in attraction to ethyl acetate and in another chemosensory behavior: avoidance of(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is associated with several diseases in immunocompromised individuals. CMV infection can be diagnosed directly by demonstration of the virus or virus components in pathological materials or indirectly through serology. Molecular biology has allowed detailed studies of the viral genome and its antigenic gene products and has led(More)
Pm: A new hydrogel composed ofiota-carrageenan/polyvinylpyrrolidon (i-cgn/pvp) was tested in rabbit eyes to dctennine its intraocular tolerance and to evaluate its suitability as a vitreous substitute. MefhodF: Aver pars-plana lensectomy and pars-plana vitrectomy 1,Sml of i-cgn/pvp were injected into 4 eyes of 4 rabbitsThe untreated contralateral eyd served(More)
