We have examined the expression of factors associated with the growth, differentiation, and chemotaxis of cells of the monocyte/macrophage series in the central nervous system of Lewis rats sensitized to develop experimental allergic encephalomyelitis. CSF-1 mRNA increased significantly over that found in control animals (sensitized with OVA in CFA or CFA(More)
An in vitro protocol has been developed for direct somatic embryogenesis of zygotic cotyledons from mature sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris L.) embryos. Explants were sequentially cultured on modified Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with different combinations of 2,4-D, NAA, BAP and TIBA. Somatic embryogenesis was induced within 4 weeks of culture on(More)
BACKGROUND The omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) have well-characterized effects on inflammation and oxidative stress and may have neuroprotective effects in a number of neurodegenerative conditions including AD. Brain tissue contains large amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are particularly vulnerable to free(More)
The time course of the action of epinephrine on cAMP levels in isolated mouse Ehrlich ascites cells was studied. Following the addition of hormone (10(-7) to 10(-4) M), cAMP levels reached a maximum within 1 min and declined to about 2 fold basal levels within 10-20 min. The decline phase was not due to the metabolism of epinephrine or accumulation of an(More)
The nonionic detergent Lubrol WX showed diverse, concentration-dependent effects onbasal and stimulated adenylate cyclases. Above concentrations of 0.001-0.01% Lubrol WX, the basal activity of cyclase from Ehrlich ascites cells was inhibed about 50%, and that from rat fat cells was doubled. In both cases, hormonal sensitivity was lost at 0.01%. These(More)
