Damage to the fimbria-fornix, and separately to the perforant path, leads to distinct and dramatic time-dependent increases in glial fibrillary acidic protein immunoreactivity (GFAP-IR) in specific areas of the hippocampal formation. Specifically, fimbria-fornix lesions resulted in an increase in the GFAP-IR in the pyramidal and oriens area of the CA3 as(More)
The influence of intensive chronic intoxication with ethanol on adult Wistar rats was investigated. The animals received through a stomach pump 5 ml of 40% ethyl alcohol solution daily for three months. Structural lesions of the CNS observed in the light microscope consisted of acute and chronic edematous changes with infiltration of mononuclear cells and(More)
The role of the olfactory and vomeronasal systems of male bank voles in behavioural interaction with females was investigated. Bulbectomy (OBX), but not vomeronasalectomy (VNX), resulted in a decrease of female-stimulated ultrasonic calling by males, manifested as longer latency to the first call and fewer calls by OBX males in comparison to VNX or(More)
The interactions of endophytes with plants are believed to evolve over time from parasitic to mutualistic, and in the seed-transmitted fungal endophytes, these interactions are conventionally treated as mutualistic. The weeping alkaligrass Puccinellia distans has recently dispersed to new habitats in Europe, where it was colonised by the seed-transmitted(More)
Rumex thyrsiflorus Fingerh. is a dioecious plant with polymorphic sex chromosomes (XX in females, XY1Y2 in males). This species is an interesting plant for study on the structure and function of sex chromosomes, the sex ratio, and is also a valuable source of bioactive constituents. A procedure for the micropropagation of R. thyrsiflorus from hypocotyl(More)
Podocytes are considered as the most important cells that determine loss of structure and function of the glomerular filter. We compared the expression of three podocyte markers, i.e.: synaptopodin (SYN), CR1 and neprilysin (NEP) in 107 patients with different forms of glomerulonephritis (GN) and 5 normal kidneys (NK). A quantitative immunohistochemistry(More)
