This study examined the axonal transport of substance P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) and its content in dorsal root ganglion, trigeminal ganglion, stomach and ileum of non-diabetic rats and two groups of rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes of 9 months duration. One diabetic group received the aldose reductase inhibitor 'Statil' throughout the period(More)
In rat L5 dorsal root ganglia 50% of neurons contained arginine vasopressin-like immunoreactivity and 38% oxytocin-like immunoreactivity, the oxytocin entirely coexisting with the arginine vasopressin. Staining of alternate mirror-image sections with RT97 (an antibody to neurofilament protein, and a marker for large light neurons) and with arginine(More)
This study measured the accumulation of substance P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) proximal and distal to 12-h constricting ligatures applied to rat sciatic nerves. There were three separate experiments, and the baseline for each consisted of control and age-matched rats with 3 wk of untreated streptozocin-induced diabetes. We compared the effects of(More)
This study examined the effect of treatment of control and streptozotocin-diabetic rats with a mixture of gangliosides, derived from bovine brain, on parameters of axonal transport of substance P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) and its levels in sciatic nerve and lumbar spinal ganglia. Rats were treated daily (10 mg/kg i.p.) for 28 days and compared with(More)
1. When dorsal root ganglia were incubated in vitro with a range of concentrations of anisomycin, incorporation of [3H]lysine into protein and synthesis of substance P (SP) were inhibited to a similar extent confirming that SP is synthesised by a conventional ribosomal mechanism. 2. Doses of anisomycin sufficient to inhibit protein synthesis in mouse CNS in(More)
