Membranes from rat telencephalon contain a single class of strychnine-insensitive glycine sites. That these sites are associated with N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptors is indicated by the observations that [3H]glycine binding is selectively modulated by NMDA receptor ligands and, conversely, that several amino acids interacting with the glycine(More)
The binding of [3H]alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic acid ([3H]AMPA), a ligand for the quisqualate subtype of excitatory amino acid receptors, was measured after chemical modifications of rat brain synaptic membranes. Treatment with oxidizing or thiol-alkylating agents did not modify [3H]AMPA binding, whereas treatment with several(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) induces morphological changes in infected cells that are remarkably similar to those seen in oncogenically transformed cells. The molecular bases of these phenotypic alterations are not known but their occurrence in some transformed cells can be associated with abnormal fibronectin (FN) expression. In this report, we have(More)
Surgical reconstruction for patients with symptomatic lower extremity arterial occlusive disease is successful when a suitable distal target vessel is present. In patients with unreconstructable disease, practical surgical options are at a minimum. We report our initial experience with dorsal venous arch arterialization (DVAA) for limb salvage. Patients(More)
BACKGROUND Internal iliac artery (IIA) stenosis is a common finding in patients undergoing angiography. In patients with localized thigh and buttock claudication, endovascular treatment of an isolated IIA stenosis may lead to symptomatic improvement. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of nine patients who underwent IIA intervention for(More)
