BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The functional characterization of secreted peptides can provide the basis for the development of novel therapeutic agents. Augurin is a recently identified secreted peptide of unknown function expressed in multiple endocrine tissues, and in regions of the brain including the hypothalamus. We therefore investigated the effect of(More)
An automated tracking system which converted an animal's path between quadrants of a circular open field into a series of trips was used to analyse stereotyped locomotion in amphetamine treated rats. Amphetamine (3.5 mg/kg) increased the horizontal distance moved and the number and proportion of thigmotaxic trips around the perimeter of the apparatus(More)
RATIONALE In this study, we sought to examine individual differences in stress-induced behavioral sensitization to d-amphetamine after repeated social defeat stress. In an effort to understand what mechanisms underlie stress-induced sensitization to d-amphetamine, we examined striatal gene expression of the dopamine receptor D(2). Additionally, we(More)
The enzyme, 2':3'-cyclic nucleotide 3'-phosphodiesterase (2':3'-cNMP-3'-ase) has been used as a marker in the nervous system for the presence of myelin membrane or myelin-producing glial cells. In this study, goldfish and bovine neural retinas are found to have high levels of such a diesterase activity. Analysis of retinal tissue incubated with 2':3'-cAMP(More)

MAB 114 and MAB 120 appeared to have the same or a very similar specificity to BRIC 125 (Avent et al., 1988). MAB 116, and possibly MAB 115, had a similar specificity to R6A (Anstee & Edwards, 1982; Avent et al., 1988). MAB 117, 118 and 119 demonstrated the MB-2D10 specificity and were, in fact, the antibodies reported by von dem Borne et al. (1990). MAB(More)
