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)
In a period marked by cultural, industrial and technological convergences of new media platforms globally, what constitutes 'Situated play'? One of the key aspects of the global digital industries has been the increasing importance of locality in determining modes of game play. Far from homogenising game play, globalisation has resulted in " disjuncture "(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)
[3H]Thymidine incorporation into cultured skin fibroblasts from patients with globoid cell leukodystrophy (GLD) and from control individuals was utilized to monitor the effects of psychosine (galactosylsphingosine) upon cell replication. The concentration of psychosine necessary to inhibit 50% (ID50) of the growth of cultured skin fibroblasts was(More)
