Distribution of cerebellothalamic neurons projecting to the ventral nuclei of the thalamus was examined in the cat, using the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) method. After injections of HRP within the lateral or ventrolateral portions of the ventro-anterior and ventrolateral nuclear complex of the thalamus (VA-VL), neurons labeled retrogradely with HRP were(More)
The cervical dorsal root ganglia (C5-C8) of the cat were examined in vivo with an electron microscope. Cell processes of unknown origin were observed to invade the area between the satellite cell sheaths and the ganglion cells, and their terminals were found to be in synaptic contact with the soma of the ganglion cells. Like chemical synapses, these(More)
Dorsal root ganglia (C3) of the cats have been examined with the electron microscope after dorsal and ventral rhizotomies and horseradish peroxidase injection into the ventral horn of the spinal cord (C3). Axo-somatic synapses were found in the dorsal root ganglia and, moreover, they showed early signs of anterograde terminal degeneration after a 48 h(More)
The role of chicken TNF-like ligand 1A (ChTL1A) on inflammation and its receptor candidates was investigated to further understand its function as a proinflammatory cytokine. ChTL1A decreased the viability of CHO-K1 cells transfected with chicken TNFR2 or decoy receptor 3 and bound to TNFR2 and decoy receptor 3. ChTL1A was detected in chicken blood samples(More)
