clinical and pathologic aspects of coronary artery disease in men of various age groups: a study of 950 autopsied cases from the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. evaluation of left ventricular thrombi by two-dimensional echocar-diography: effect of anticoagulant therapy. SUMMARY A new echocardiographic contrast agent, gelatin-encapsulated microbubbles,(More)
We have demonstrated previously that sympathetic and vagal afferents travel in an apical-to-basal course in the heart, and can be stimulated selectively with epicardial applications of bradykinin and nicotine, respectively. In this study we tested the hypothesis that transmural myocardial infarction interrupts sympathetic and vagal afferent fibers traveling(More)
The molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia have been under investigation for decades; however, the exact causes of this debilitating neuropsychiatric disorder are still unknown. Previous studies have identified multiple affected neurotransmitter systems, brain regions, and cell types, each making a unique contribution to symptom presentation and(More)
To determine whether liposomes (microscopic phospholipid vesicles) may be useful in delivering drugs to a region of myocardial ischemia, we studied the concentration of positively charged and neutral liposomes containing 131I-albumin and horseradish peroxidase in ischemic myocardium of 20 dogs during the first 4 hours of experimental myocardial infarction.(More)
Glycosylation is a post-translational modification that is an essential element in cell signaling and neurodevelopmental pathway regulation. Glycan attachment can influence the tertiary structure and molecular interactions of glycosylated substrates, adding an additional layer of regulatory complexity to functional mechanisms underlying central cell(More)
Changes in the extent of the posttranslational modification glycosylation have been previously reported in several brain regions in schizophrenia. Quality control within the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi, branching of glycans, intracellular trafficking and targeting, protein-protein interactions, and endocytosis are processes regulated by both N-linked(More)
Inhibitory neurotransmission is primarily mediated by γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) activating synaptic GABA type A receptors (GABA(A)R). In schizophrenia, presynaptic GABAergic signaling deficits are among the most replicated findings; however, postsynaptic GABAergic deficits are less well characterized. Our lab has previously demonstrated that although there(More)
