Intraperitoneal capsaicin desensitizes sensory fibers traveling within both the vagus and splanchnic nerves. Because capsaicin desensitization blocks the first phase of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) fever, whereas surgical vagotomy does not, splanchnic mediation of the first phase was proposed. However, all phases of the febrile response of splanchnicotomized(More)
Obese (f/f) Koletsky rats lack the leptin receptor (LR), whereas their lean (F/?) counterparts bear a fully functional LR. By using f/f and F/? rats, we studied whether the LR is involved in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced fever and hypothermia. The body temperature responses to LPS (10 or 100 microg/kg iv) were measured in Koletsky rats exposed to a(More)
Noradrenaline (NA) was conjugated to different protein carriers with glutaraldehyde. During the catecholamine conjugate synthesis, precautions were taken in order to preserve the structure of NA. Anti-NA antibodies were raised in rabbits and tested using a modified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunocytochemistry. The most immunoreactive antigen(More)
We studied the immunoreactivity of 5-methoxytryptamine (MT) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (HT) in the raphe region of rats using specific polyclonal antibodies and the peroxidase/anti-peroxidase (PAP) technique. Overall, the patterns of the specific staining for these two antibodies were found to be the same in this region of the rat brain. The staining reaction(More)
Although it is well established that glucocorticoid hormones (GCs) alter immune function and disease resistance in humans and laboratory animal models, fewer studies have linked elevated GCs to altered immune function and disease resistance in wild animals. The chytrid fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) infects amphibians and can cause the(More)
— 1X Advanced is the natural evolution of CDMA2000 1X, the first and one of the most widely deployed 3G technologies. 1X Advanced builds upon proven 1X technology and adds advanced techniques such as BTS interference cancellation, radio link enhancements and others to provide an unprecedented increase in performance to support the rising data demand of(More)
In today's digital world the major issue is authentication and identification. In authentication and identification the significant role is face detection. In real time application, face detection has become a challenging and interesting area. In last few year number of algorithm have been developed for face detection. In this paper, for different color(More)
