Immunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies on the exenterated orbital tissues of a patient with Graves' disease.
The exenterated orbital contents obtained post mortem from a 47-year-old man who had an eight-month history of treated hyperthyroidism and a two-month history of visual complaints were examinedExpand

On the asymmetry of frog retinal rod outer segment disk membranes.
Abstract Freeze-fracture studies on intact frog rod outer segments have been carried out using a device designed to minimize surface contamination and inadvertent specimen etching. When fractured andExpand

Cyclic GMP increases photocurrent and light sensitivity of retinal cones
Like retinal rods, cone photoreceptors contain cyclic GMP and light-activated phosphodiesterase1–3. The cGMP phosphodiesterase cascade is thought to mediate phototransduction in rods. BiochemicalExpand

Definition of tolerance to continuous hyperoxia in man - An abstract report of Predictive Studies V
The overall goals, design, and procedures of Predictive Studies V are discussed as well as the specific elements of neural effects produced by prolonged hyperoxia. It is noted that Predictive StudiesExpand

Follicle-stimulating hormone-secreting pituitary adenomas: correlation of reduction of adenoma size with reduction of hormonal hypersecretion after transsphenoidal surgery.
Ten men who had FSH-secreting pituitary adenomas were evaluated before and 4-6 weeks after transsphenoidal surgery to determine whether reduction of adenoma mass would ameliorate the hormonalExpand

Cyclic GMP can increase rod outer-segment light-sensitive current 10-fold without delay of excitation
To test the hypothesis that cyclic GMP is the internal messenger coupling rhodopsin activation to membrane excitation in vertebrate rod photoreceptors, we used a novel technique combining measurementExpand

Superior division paresis of the oculomotor nerve.
Five patients with isolated ptosis and a paresis of ocular elevation in abduction consistent with an isolated superior division III nerve palsy are reported. In all instances the III nerve appearedExpand
