The topographical relationship between the swim bladder, the inner ear, and the otic lateral line was studied in the bottom dwelling catfish, Ancistrus sp. In addition, afferent and efferent subcomponents of the eighth and lateral line nerves were labelled with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or with differently fluorescing dextran amines. The swim bladder of(More)
The expression pattern of the extracellular matrix molecule tenascin-C was investigated in the retinotectal system of the frog Discoglossus pictus and the salamander Pleurodeles waltl during development and optic nerve regeneration in the adult. In both species, the retina was devoid of tenascin-C immunoreactivity at all ages studied. During development,(More)
In the brain of the salamander Pleurodeles waltl, microglial cells were investigated cytochemically with isolectin B4 (IB4) of Bandeiraea simplicifolia after optic nerve transection and during subsequent regeneration. Double-labeling with an antibody directed against the glial fibrillary acidic protein of astrocytes revealed no immunoreactivity in(More)
Antibodies specific to the neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM-total), the 180 x 10(3) M(r) component of NCAM (NCAM-180) and polysialic acid (PSA) were used in immunohistochemistry and Western blots to detect the spatiotemporal dynamics of these molecules in development and regeneration of the retinotectal system of Pleurodeles waltl. NCAM-total and(More)
The projection of individual inner ear maculae of the catfish, Ancistrus spec. were labelled with horseradish peroxidases (HRP) or fluorescent dextran amines. In ostariophysans, fibres which innervate epithelia known or assumed to be sensitive to the pressure component of aquatic sound, i.e. acoustic fibres which come from the sacculus and lagena, have(More)
Methyl decanoate is a large methyl ester that can be used as a surrogate for biodiesel. In this experimental and computational study, the combustion of methyl decanoate was investigated in non‐premixed, nonuniform flows. Experiments were performed employing the counterflow configuration with a fuel stream made up of vaporized methyl decanoate and nitrogen,(More)
1. Wie wird der 88jährige Patient mit seiner Oberschenkelamputation „fertig“? Lässt er sich zu krankengymnastischen Übungen motivieren? 2. Die Nahrungsverweigerung führt zu zunehmender körperlicher Schwäche und Lebensunlust. Dies wäre anzusprechen. 3. Wie reagiert der Patient auf eine längere antidepressive Pharmakotherapie und eine psychagogische und(More)
