Minocycline, a semisynthetic tetracycline derivative, protects brain against global and focal ischemia in rodents. We examined whether minocycline reduces excitotoxicity in primary neuronal cultures. Minocycline (0.02 microm) significantly increased neuronal survival in mixed spinal cord (SC) cultures treated with 500 microm glutamate or 100 microm kainate(More)
Immunohistochemical analysis of avidin and ovalbumin expression in the normally developing chick oviduct was compared to those changes induced by exogenous estrogen. Oviduct maturation was found to occur in two consecutive phases: slow proliferation and rapid differentiation. Mitosis was induced in the epithelium by estrogen, whereas it was inhibited by(More)
