Messenger RNA encoding the immediate early genes (IEGs) c-fos and NGFI-A was localized by in situ hybridization of specific 35S-labelled oligonucleotides to detect activated neurones in the medulla oblongata following unilateral electrical stimulation of the vagus (nX) and aortic depressor nerve (ADN), and following mechanical stimulation of the left(More)
Expression of preprogalanin and tyrosine hydroxylase mRNA was examined in the rat dorsal vagal complex following nodose ganglionectomy and cervical vagotomy, using in situ hybridization of specific 35S-labelled oligonucleotides. Seven days after unilateral cervical vagotomy (and nodose ganglionectomy), neurons in the ipsilateral dorsal motor nucleus of the(More)
Galanin and neuropeptide Y are known to coexist with noradrenaline in neurones of the locus coeruleus. Furthermore, reserpine depletes noradrenaline from, and increases the synthesis and activity of the catecholamine-synthesizing enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase in, this nucleus. We have found by in situ hybridization of specific 35S-labelled oligonucleotide(More)
Using in situ hybridization, we have measured c-jun mRNA expression in the caudal medulla oblongata of the rat following sectioning of the cervical vagus nerve. Twenty four hours after either unilateral cervical vagotomy or nodose ganglionectomy, motoneurones in the ipsilateral dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus and nucleus ambiguus expressed increased (2-3(More)
Neurons expressing messenger RNA encoding the opioid peptide precursors, preproenkephalin and preprodynorphin were localized in the medulla oblongata of the rat by in situ hybridization of specific DNA oligonucleotide probes. Neurons containing preproenkephalin messenger RNA were found throughout the medullary reticular formation in the gigantocellular and(More)
