Microinjection of arginine vasopressin into the medial preoptic area of the hypothalamus of male and female golden hamsters triggered a complex, stereotypic behavior--flank marking--a type of scent marking used in olfactory communication. The flank marking was not elicited by saline, oxytocin, neurotensin, or angiotensin II. Vasopressin was ineffective when(More)
Little is known about collagen XI expression in normal and malignant breast tissue. Tissue microarrays, constructed from 72 patients with breast carcinoma and matched normal tissue, were immunohistochemically stained with five antisera against isoform-specific regions of collagen alpha1(XI) N-terminal domain. Staining intensity was graded on a 0-3 scale in(More)
In previous studies, collagen XI mRNA has been detected in colon cancer, but its location in human colon tissue has not been determined. The heterotrimeric collagen XI consists of three alpha chains. While it is known that collagen XI plays a regulatory role in collagen fibril formation, its function in the colon is unknown. The characterization of normal(More)
