Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is present in climbing and mossy fibers and both have a distinct pattern of distribution in the adult cerebellar cortex. The intent of this developmental study is to determine when the lobular pattern of CRF distribution emerges, and to analyze the morphogenesis of CRF immunoreactive climbing and mossy fibers in(More)
Numerous studies have shown in the adult nervous system that mRNA expression can be regulated by neuronal activity. To examine the effect of activity during embryogenesis, the ontogeny of proenkephalin mRNA expression and expression following activity blockade was investigated during development of chick spinal cord. A cDNA fragment (ca. 0.5 kb) coding for(More)
De-oiled algal biomass (algal cake) generated as waste byproduct during algal biodiesel production is a promising fermentable substrate for co-production of value-added chemicals in biorefinery systems. We explored the ability of Lactobacillus casei 12A to ferment algal cake for co-production of lactic acid. Carbohydrate and amino acid availability were(More)
cis-Diammine(1,1,-cyclobutanedicarboxylato)platinum(II) (carboplatin) is a second generation platinum anticancer agent with antineoplastic properties like that of its parent compound, cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (cisplatin) but with substantially less deleterious side effects in treated patients with cisplatin. We compared their genotoxic effects in(More)
The purpose of the present study is to determine the distribution of CRF containing afferents, and correlate these findings with the distribution of CRF binding sites and the neuronal localization of mRNA for the CRF1 receptor in the cerebellum of a single species, the mouse. Corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) has been localized within climbing fibers and(More)
