Data obtained suggest that preganglionic stimulation of the ciliary ganglion produces an increase of aqueous humor formation and of facility of outflow "C" through the following neurogenic pathway: (1) the preganglionic fibers synapse in the ciliary ganglion as evidenced by depression of the response with nicotine applied topically to the ganglion. (2) The(More)
Infection with immunosuppressive lentiviruses is associated with increased cancer risk,but most studies have implicated indirect mechanisms as the tumor cells generally lack integrated viral sequences. An exception wasfound in a B-cell lymphoma (Q254) where the tumor cells contained a single integrated feline immunodeficiency virus genome. Additional(More)
Stimulation of the ciliary ganglion in an enucleated, arterially perfused cat eye preparation produced a sustained increase in aqueous humor formation and an increase in the rate of aqueous humor outflow. The increased aqueous humor formation induced by ciliary ganglion stimulation has been found to be pressure-dependent and therefore suggests that(More)
Protein permeability of the ciliary epithelium of enucleated arterially perfused cat eyes was studied. Tracer concentrations of 125I-albumin, in an arterial perfusate solution consisting of a balanced salt solution (BSS) without added colloid, was found in the anterior chamber fluid (AH) in a percentage similar to the AH/plasma ratio found for protein in(More)
The retinal S-antigen (S-Ag) has been shown to induce uveitis effectively in subhuman primates, and lymphocytes from patients with certain uveitic conditions show cell-mediated responses to this antigen. Rhodopsin kinase (RK), an enzyme probably unique to the mammalian eye, is reported here to resemble the retinal S-Ag in its capacity to induce uveitis in(More)
