The neurotrophin brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays an important role in neuronal survival, axonal and dendritic growth and synapse formation. BDNF has also been reported to mediate visual cortex plasticity. Here we studied the cellular mechanisms of BDNF-mediated changes in synaptic plasticity, excitatory synaptic transmission and long-term(More)
Previous polarization-microscopical measurements combined with silver-staining methods at histological sections of the bicuspid valve and the tricuspid valve in the region of fibrosa showed (similar to that of the corresponding tendinous cords) for middle-aged persons a distinct difference in the collagen composition in comparison between high pressure vs.(More)
Periportal (pp) or perivenous (pv) liver parenchymal cells from female adult Uje: WIST rats were isolated after retro- or antegrade digitonin infusion followed by collagenase perfusion in the opposite direction. The morphological results revealed a distinct acinar-related destruction of the pv- or pp-zone by digitonin. The remaining cells of the respective(More)
