Long-term primary cultures derived from fetal mouse or rat choroid plexus were obtained in serum-supplemented media. Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to basolateral and apical membrane components were used to observe the expression of specific markers of polarity and function. Choroid plexus cultures and thin frozen sections of adult tissues were(More)
GTP binding proteins have been proposed to play a role in excitation--contraction coupling. In a precedent study [Toutant et al., (1988), Biochem. J., 405-409], we determined that Bordetella pertussis toxin is able to catalyse ADP-ribosylation of two substrates in the detergent soluble fraction of total muscle extracts. Purified fractions of transverse(More)
We provide immunocytochemical evidence that the neuronal isoform of constitutive NO synthase (cNOS) is expressed in the rat insulinoma cell line INS-1. Furthermore, using N omega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), a pharmacological inhibitor of cNOS activity, we show that this enzyme is implicated in the modulation of insulin secretion in INS-1 cells.(More)
