The present report is based on the karyotype studies of two species of fishes,Notopterus chitala andN. notopterus, collected from the river Jumna, Delhi, India. Both species possess a diploid number of 48 chromosomes, 12 of which are metacentric. The primary and secondary spermatocytes of one individual ofN. chitala have been found to possess varying(More)
The present report embodies karyotype studies of seven Indian cyprinids. Of these, the karyotypes of five species possess chromosomes all of which are acrocentric. These areLabeo calbasu (Ham.) 2n=54,Puntius sophore (Ham.),P. conchonius Ham.,P. stigma (Ham.) 2n=50 andChela bacaila (Ham.) 2n=52. The karyotype ofCrossocheilus latius punjabensis Mukerji has 48(More)
We have studied the effects of two endotoxins, S enteritidis and E coli on liver, pancreas, intestine, lung and kidney of 10 day old Sprague Dawley rat at light and electron microscope levels. One group of experimental animals (N = 31) received a single intraperitoneal injection of 0.1 mg/kg of S enteritidis endotoxin. The second experimental group (N = 34)(More)
Sepsis in newborns and infants is a major pediatric problem often associated with renal dysfunction. The present report deals with changes in renal tissue induced bySalmonella enteritidis endotoxin in 10- and 28-day-old Sprague-Dawley rats. Our studies revealed a 90% lethality within 24 h of 0.1 mg/kg and 35 mg/kgS. enteritidis endotoxin injection in 10-(More)
Antisera to the streptococcal cell membrane (SCM) were evaluated for their reactivity to murine glomerular basement membrane (GBM) in four strains of mice. Animals were studied on a daily basis from birth through 3 months and weekly thereafter through 18 months. Paired animals were compared for in vivo binding of antibody versus an indirect fluorescent(More)
Incorporation of 3H-proline in the mouse kidney was studied by electron microscopic radioautography in a pulse-chase mode to establish the role of visceral epithelial, endothelial, and mesangial elements in the synthesis and turnover of glomerular basement membrane. Visceral epithelial and endothelial cells were found to play a significant role in the(More)
