The cochleovestibular ganglion of the chick differentiates at early embryonic stages as VIIIth nerve axons enter the brainstem. The tonotopic organization of the auditory portion of the VIIIth nerve can be discerned at the time axons initially reach their brainstem targets. The mechanisms underlying this early organization are not known. Eph receptor(More)
Eph receptors play important roles in axon guidance at the midline. In the auditory system, growth of axons across the midline is an important determinant of auditory function. The avian cochlear nucleus, n. magnocellularis (NM), makes bilateral projections to its target, n. laminaris (NL). We examined the time course of NM axon growth toward the midline,(More)
The 2,4,5-triaryl imidazole derivatives (API) were designed, screened and characterized kinetically & thermodynamically against Pepsin and their activity was also tested on the in silico platform. The docking studies of API with Pepsin show that these are novel and unique inhibitors of Aspartic protease. Drug like properties of these compounds were(More)
Pain defines trigeminal neuralgia as sudden, recurrent , severe pain in the distribution of one or more of the branches of the fifth cranial nerve. 1 Although compression of the nerve root is the most common reported cause of the disorder, most cases are idio-pathic. The pain can be triggered by talking, brushing teeth, touching the face, chewing, or(More)
