The developing cerebral cortex undergoes a period of substantial cell death. The present studies examine the role of the suicide receptor Fas/Apo[apoptosis]-1 in cerebral cortical development. Fas mRNA and protein are transiently expressed in subsets of cells within the developing rat cerebral cortex during the peak period of apoptosis. Fas-immunoreactive(More)
BACKGROUND Many abstracts submitted to annual scientific meetings never come to full publication in peer-reviewed journals. The objective of this study was to determine factors associated with the fate of endoscopic research abstracts submitted to the annual scientific meeting of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE). METHODS All(More)
The developing cerebral cortex undergoes overlapping periods of neurogenesis, suicide, and differentiation to generate the mature cortical plate. The following experiments examined the role of the gonadal hormone estrogen in comparison to the neurotrophins, in the regulation of p53-dependent cortical cell fate. To synchronize choices between neurogenesis,(More)
Pepsin-solubilized bovine corium collagen was reconstituted by rapid neutralization in dilute phosphate buffer at temperatures ranging from 10 degrees C-25 degrees C. The resultant fibrils were harvested by centrifugation and resuspended in physiological buffer to a constant protein concentration. The optical density of such suspensions, measured at 410 nm(More)
Apoptosis is important for normal cerebral cortical development. We previously showed that the Fas suicide receptor was expressed within the developing cerebral cortex, and that in vitro Fas activation resulted in caspase-dependent death. Alterations in cell-surface Fas expression may significantly influence cortical development. Therefore, in the following(More)
Pepsin-solubilized bovine corium collagen was purified, reconstituted, and treated with various levels of glutaraldehyde. Treatment of suspensions of fibrillar collagen with low concentrations of glutaraldehyde appeared to have little effect on the gross morphology of fibrils, as judged by electron microscopy, but did have a significant impact on their(More)
