The ability of pre- and postsynaptic populations to achieve the proper convergence ratios during development is especially critical in topographically mapped systems such as the retinotectal system. The ratio of retinal ganglion cells to their target cells in the optic tectum can be altered experimentally either by early partial tectal ablation, which(More)
The coexistence of cholecystokinin- and tyrosine hydroxylase-like immunoreactivities within neurons of the rat ventral mesencephalon was analyzed by using an indirect immunofluorescence technique for the simultaneous demonstration of two antigens in the same tissue section. A high degree of colocalization was observed in the substantia nigra pars compacta,(More)
We investigated the tissue regeneration and lipid-lowering effects of policosanol (PCO) by employing a hyperlipidemic zebrafish model. A reconstituted high-density lipoprotein containing policosanol (PCO-rHDL) facilitated greater cell growth and replication with less apoptosis and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in BV-2 microglial cell lines. From(More)
Acrylamide is a well-known potent carcinogen and neurotoxin that, until now, has not been sufficiently investigated with regard to its effects on lipid metabolism. We investigated physiological effects of acrylamide (AA) on lipoprotein metabolism using human macrophages, dermal cells, and zebrafish models. Functional and structural properties of(More)
