Horseradish peroxidase, 13% Sigma Type VI, was administered iontophoretically to the mid lateral hypothalamus (LH) of male hooded rats. Animals were perfused intracardially on the following day and brains were removed and sliced in the coronal or sagittal planes into 30-50 micrometer sections. Sections were processed with DAB and BDH for the brown and blue(More)
Horseradish peroxidase (HRP, Sigma Type VI) crystals were encased in a parafilm envelope and applied to the transected central ends of the left and right cervical vagus nerves and the anterior and posterior esophageal vagus nerves of adult male hooded rats. Injections of 30% HRP were made into the muscle wall of the fundus and antrum regions of the stomach.(More)
A microsystem for rotation-mediated aggregate cell culture studies has been devised to examine vasopressin (VP) biosynthesis of developing rat hypothalamus. Trypsin-dispersed hypothalamic tissue was placed into 24 well tissue culture dishes and VP content of culture medium and cells was measured over time by a radioimmunoassay. Reaggregates formed within 4(More)
The present paper reviews recent work conducted in our laboratory on vasopressin neurons either grown in culture or transplanted into vasopressin deficient rats. The in vitro model of reaggregated cell culture used the anterior hypothalamus, including vasopressin neurons of the SON from normal timed-pregnant LE rats of similar ages used in our in vivo(More)
Horseradish peroxidase, 13% Sigma Type VI, was administered iontophoretically to the lateral preoptic area (LPA) of male hooded rats. Animals were perfused intracardially on the following day and brains were removed and sliced in the coronal plane into 50 microns sections. Alternate sections were processed with DAB and BDH for the brown and blue reaction(More)
