We studied effects of anxiogenic and anxiolytic compounds on the electric self-stimulation of the medial fore-brain bundle in male rats to find out if there is a link between reward and anxiety-related behaviours. The cholecystokinin agonist, caerulein (25-100 micrograms/kg) and the 5-HT agonist 1-(3-chlorophenyl)piperazine (0.2-1 mg/kg) dose-dependently(More)
It has been demonstrated that membrane-stabilizing agents, chlorpromazine and alpha-tocopherol, have no effect on the increased blood-brain barrier permeability for 14C-tyrosine, induced by a single injection of ethanol at a dose of 2 and 4 g/kg. Dopaminergic antagonist haloperidol prevented the increase of blood-brain barrier permeability induced by a(More)
A new COMT inhibitor, nitecapone (OR-462) or clorgyline, a MAO-A inhibitor, was infused into the 3rd brain ventricle (i.c.v.) of conscious male rats. None of the enzyme inhibitors given alone alter hypothalamic or striatal levels of L-dopa, dopamine or their metabolites. Most of the rats were pretreated with levodopa/carbidopa (LD/CD, 15/30 mg kg-1(More)
Carbidopa at a dose 40 and 80 mg/kg, i.p. had no effect on BBB permeability for 14C-tyrosine but increased in a dose-dependent manner the penetration of 14C-DOPA into the brain. DMSO at a dose 1.75, 3.5 and 7 g/kg, i.p. increased the BBB permeability for both isotopes but to a greater extent for the labeled tyrosine. Carbidopa combined with DMSO produced(More)
Male Wistar rats were divided in free choice conditions into heavy-drinkers consuming greater than 3.5 g/kg of ethanol daily (HD), and light-drinkers consuming less than 2.0 g/kg/day (LD). Subsequent 30 day intragastric administration of 25% ethanol (8-11 g/kg/day) caused an increase in permeability of the BBB to 14C-tyrosine, 14C-tryptophan and 14C-DOPA at(More)
The karyotype of the endemic Okhotsk Sea sculpin Myoxocephalus ochotensis Schmidt (Cottidae) from Odyan Bay was studied. The number and morphology of chromosomes were determined, 2n = 42 (2 metacentric, 20 subtelocentric, and 20 acrocentric chromosomes), NF = 44. Variability of chromosome number was not revealed; no difference between male and female(More)
This study deals with the karyotype of the flathead sculpin Megalocottus platycephalus platycephalus (Pallas, 1814) (family Cottidae) from Odyan Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk. The karyotype is stable: 2n = 42 (2 metacentric, 2 submeta-subtelocentric, 30 subtelocentric, and 8 acrocentric chromosomes), NF = 44 + 2. The nucleolar organizers (NOs) were identified(More)
A new embryonic antigen was found in ovarian tumors by methods of immunodifusion analysis. This antigen consists of two components with different electrophoretic mobilities: The slow peak migrates in the αo-globulin zone, the fast peak in the prealbumin zone. It is immunologically different from α-fetoprotein and from the carcinoembryonic antigen of the(More)
A complex study, including genetic and karyological approaches, as well as an analysis of the ultrastructural organization of spermatozoa of the Nozawa’s prickleback Stichaeus nozawae (Jordan et Snyder, 1902) and Grigorev’s prickleback S. grigorievi (Herzenstein, 1890) from Vostok Bay, Sea of Japan, is considered in the present work. The species exhibit(More)
The development of cross tolerance to morphine, amphetamine and alcohol according to their activating effect on the system of positive reinforcement of the brain was shown on the basis of experimental self-stimulation reaction. It is assumed that the common neurophysiological and neurochemical mechanisms, particularly the adrenergic mechanisms of the system(More)
