Spermatogenesis and acrosomal formation in the musk shrew, Suncus murinus, were studied by light and transmission electron microscopy. The cycle of the seminiferous epithelium was divided into 13 stages based on the characteristics of acrosomal change and nuclear shape, appearance of meiotic figures, location of spermatids, and period of spermiation. The(More)
The seminiferous epithelium of the common tree shrew (Tupaia glis) was investigated using transmission electron microscopy and lectin-histochemistry. It was compared with that of shrews examined in previous studies. Some peculiar structures were detected in the tree shrew spermatid at the electron microscopic level. The most characteristic feature was the(More)
A new fault simulator (VFSIM) for synchronous sequential circuits has been developed and applied to random access scan circuits of several hundred LSIs in mainframe computers. The results show that VFSIM is one or two orders of magnitude faster than a conventional fault simulator designed for random access scan circuits. A vectorized pattern parallel(More)
The authors describe a patient with dopa-responsive dystonia who developed neuroleptic malignant syndrome with prolonged catatonia following treatment with neuroleptic agents. Use of these agents probably expanded the patient's neuronal dysfunction beyond the nigrostriatal system to involve multiple dopaminergic systems. Electroconvulsive treatment(More)
In the abomasal epithelium of the goat, glycoconjugates have been studied by means of selective histochemical methods. The staining procedures employed were alcian blue (AB) pH 1.0 AB pH 2.5, Periodic acid Schiff (PAS) and AB pH 2.5-PAS. According to the results obtained, the nature of glycoconjugates in mucous epithelium was found to change during cell(More)
This paper describes the algorithm, implementation, and evaluation results of a new fault simulator called RFSIM, which is designed for combinational circuits. In order to accelerate fault simulation, two basic principles are introduced, a Detectable Fault Only (DFO) principle and a Candidate Gate Once (CGO) principle. The DFO principle is a dynamic(More)
The classification of the cycle of the seminiferous epithelium was carried out in the common tree shrew (Tupaia glis). The tree shrew captured in Thailand were fixed with Bouin's fixative, embedded in paraffin wax, and stained with PAS-hematoxylin. The cycle was classified into twelve stages on the basis of the acrosomal changes of spermatids. Relative(More)
The chicken m. retractor phalli cranialis classified as a smooth muscle was examined by electron microscopy to study the innervation of this muscle using the dichromate/chromate fixation method for demonstration of biogenic amines (Tranzer and Richards, 1976). Approximately two axon complexes per 100 muscle cells were found in both sexes. The axon(More)
