A lactose-extractable lectin obtained from 14--16-d embryonic chick pectoral muscle and myotube muscle cultures by affinity chromatography inhibited myotube formation in culture. When applied to muscle cultures at 0.09 micrograms/ml, the purified lectin produced variable effects on the inhibition of myotube formation related to the time and length of(More)
Nerve fibers immunoreactive for vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) were demonstrated for the first time by the indirect immunofluorescence technique in human and monkey kidneys. VIP-immunoreactive nerve fibers showing varicosities were observed in the adventitia of arcuate arteries and their branches. The density of VIP-immunoreactive nerve fibers(More)
Nerve fibers immunoreactive for neuropeptide Y (NPY) are demonstrated for the first time by the indirect immunofluorescence technique in the human and monkey kidney. NPY-like immunoactivity (NPY-LI) is shown in a bundle of nerve fibers in the surrounding connective tissue of arteries and to a lesser extent, veins, mainly at the juxtamedullary region.(More)
