The expression and significance of three types of Fos-like immunoreactive (Li) cells were investigated after gamma knife irradiation of the forebrain in the rat. Three months after the irradiation, the brain sections were immunostained with an antiserum against Fos protein. It was shown that the Fos-like immunoreactivity (LI) appeared in some of the(More)
Both double-label and intracellular electrophysiological recording techniques were utilized to investigate the interactions between enkephalin and gamma-aminobutyric acid in the larval tiger salamander retina. Double-label studies revealed that the vast majority (greater than 96%) of enkephalin-immunostained amacrine cells also exhibit high affinity uptake(More)
Previous double-label studies demonstrate that enkephalin coexists with gamma-aminobutyric acid, glycine or neurotensin in amacrine cells of the chicken retina. The present study utilizes double- and triple-label paradigms to quantitatively analyze these coexisting relationships. Twenty-eight percent of enkephalin-like immunoreactive amacrine cells were(More)
The transport characteristics of fluorescein methotrexate (F-MTX) were studied by using the rat intestinal crypt cell line IEC-6. Enhanced accumulation of F-MTX at 4 degrees C suggests the existence of an active efflux system. MK-571, an inhibitor of the multidrug resistance-associated protein/ATP binding cassette C (MRP/ABCC) family, also enhanced the(More)
Autoradiography was used to visualize the neurons in the tiger salamander retina that exhibit high-affinity uptake of 3H-dopamine, [3H]-serotonin, [3H]-glycine, and [3H]-GABA. Both [3H]-dopamine and [3H]-serotonin were accumulated by amacrine cells and by displaced amacrine cells. [3H]-glycine was taken up by amacrine cells, displaced amacrine cells,(More)
In order to study the expression of Fos protein in catecholaminergic neurons in the medullary visceral zone (MVZ), which project to the habenular nucleus (HB), a triple-labeling method combining wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) retrograde tracing with anti-Fos and anti-tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) immunohistochemical staining(More)
Psoriasin is a low molecular weight Ca(2+)-binding protein with known antimicrobial activity. Since human airway epithelial cells produce a number of powerful antimicrobial agents as part of their host defence, we investigated whether psoriasin was expressed in human bronchial epithelial cell lines. Expression was investigated in 16HBE14o- cells, derived(More)
To test whether the increased intracellular Cl- concentration ([Cl-]i) is responsible for the enhanced glutamate toxicity, antisense oligonucleotide of ClP55, a Cl- -ATPase/pump associated protein, was transfected in cultured rat hippocampal neurons. Neuronal [Cl-]i in the antisense oligonucleotide-transfected culture increased to a level 3- to 4-fold(More)
