1. Previous studies have demonstrated that exocytosis in adrenal chromaffin cells appears to require zinc-dependent endoproteinase activity. 2. Chromaffin cells have metal-dependent endoproteinases in both the plasma membrane and the soluble fraction of homogenized cells. In order to further study critically the role of metalloproteinase in exocytosis, and(More)
PURPOSE Hypothermia has been shown to be neuroprotective in the therapy of ischemic stroke in the brain. To date no studies exist on the level of the inner retina and it is unclear if hypothermia would prolong the ischemic tolerance time of retinal ganglion cells, which are decisive in many ischemic retinopathies. METHODS Bovine eyes were enucleated and(More)
