A comparative study of the expression of metabotropic glutamate receptor 2/3 (mGluR2/3) was done in the hippocampus of rats and mice after pilocarpine-induced status epilepticus (APISE), and of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. At 1 day APISE, there was a marked increase in mGluR2/3 immunoreactivity in the stratum lacunosum moleculare (SLM) of(More)
In CA1 area and the hilus of the dentate gyrus of the mouse hippocampus, drastic reduction of NeuN, calbindin, calretinin, or parvalbumin immunopositive neurons was shown at 3, 7 and 60 days after pilocarpine-induced status epilepticus. In gliotic CA1 area at 60 days, few dendritic branches of calcium binding protein immunopositive neurons could be found(More)
Continuous wave nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) studies indicated that the line width of the water absorption peak (Deltav(1/2)) from crowns of winter and spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) increased during cold acclimation. There was a negative correlation between Deltav(1/2) and crown water content, and both of these parameters were correlated with the(More)
Although radiotherapy is an integral part in the management of certain types of hematological malignancies, its effect on the reproductive system has been well documented. We report a rare complication where a patient had complete vaginal obliteration after receiving a dose of total body irradiation (1575 cGy) as part of her treatment for acute myeloid(More)
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxation times were studied in acclimated and nonacclimated Kharkov winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) crowns and acclimated cell aggregates to determine if membrane permeability was altered by freezing. The NMR water signal decay consisted of two exponential components: a short one arising from extracellular water, and a(More)
The effects of bis(7)-tacrine, a novel acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, on ischemia-induced cell death and apoptosis were investigated in primary cerebral cortical astrocytes of mice. Following a 6 h in vitro ischemic incubation of the cultures, a marked decrease in the percentage of viable cells was observed by lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release assay.(More)
