Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a potent neurotrophin signaling protein, the best-known member of a family of similar neurotrophins. Specific neuronal populations depend upon the neurotrophins for normal function and disturbances in NGF and neurotrophin supply have been implicated in neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, and hypertension.

A radioimmunoassay for a new human adrenal specific protein (ASP) is described. The assay has a lower limit of detection of approximately 50 micrograms/l. The ASP extracted and purified from adrenal glands was used for standardization, radio-iodination and immunization of rabbits. Adrenal specific protein can be detected in normal human serum and plasma(More)
To support pedagogical innovation, educators must reexamine physical space. This paper describes a project to redesign an existing classroom into a flexible learning space. The desired outcome was a classroom that would support a variety of pedagogical approaches and learning experiences. The findings, based on data gathered from students and faculty,(More)
Adrenal-seminal-pituitary protein (ASP) was measured by radioimmunoassay in maternal serum and amniotic fluid samples obtained throughout pregnancy. Levels of ASP in maternal circulation showed a steady rise from a mean of 350 micrograms/l at ten weeks gestation to 526 micrograms/l at term. There was a further rise in ASP levels during labour. In contrast,(More)
