Light-induced phase shifts of circadian rhythmic locomotor activity are associated with the expression of c-Jun, JunB, c-Fos and FosB transcription factors in the rat suprachiasmatic nucleus, as shown in the present study. In order to explore the importance of c-Fos and JunB, the predominantly expressed AP-1 proteins for the phase-shifting effects of light,(More)
This in vitro study was aimed at restitution of transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta 2-mediated suppression of T-lymphocyte activation within malignant gliomas. In early-passage tumor cell cultures of two glioblastomas (HTZ-153 and HTZ-209) and one malignant astrocytoma classified as World Health Organization Grade III (HTZ-243), autologous peripheral(More)
1. To investigate the role of the Jun transcription factors in neuronal differentiation, programmed neuronal cell death, and neuronal plasticity, we used phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotides (S-ODN) to inhibit selectively the expression of c-Jun, JunB, and JunD. 2. We have shown previously that in contrast to c-Jun, the JunB and JunD transcription factors(More)
Induction of the jun-B and/or c-jun transcription factors is part of the immediate early response to diverse stimuli that induce alterations in cellular programs. While c-jun is a protooncogene whose expression is required for induction of cell proliferation, jun-B has recently been found to be induced by stimuli inducing differentiation in various cell(More)
In the present study we investigated the effectiveness of 14, 15 and 18 nucleotide antisense phosphorothioate oligonucleotides (S-ODNs) directed to four different regions of the published mdr-1 gene sequence to reduce the level of mdr-1 gene product (p170, P-glycoprotein) and its function in the over-expressing cell lines Lo-VoDxR, S180DxR and KBChR8-5. The(More)
The distribution of mRNA expression for three types of voltage gated neuronal sodium-channels was studied in the rat brain at different developmental stages (embryonal day E18, postnatal day P5 and adult). With the in-situ hybridization technique, using synthetic DNA-oligomer probes, pronounced regional and temporal variations in the expression levels of(More)
We examined the dynamics of removal from circulation, tissue distribution, and persistence of phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotides (S-ODN) anti-tumor-necrosis-factor and a control of random sequence (randomer) in mice. After intravenous injection, the majority (96%) of S-ODN cleared rapidly from the circulation in the first two phases. In the first phase,(More)
In the marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), HRP and 3H-apo-HRP were injected into various cortical regions and the positions of labelled neurons in the non-specific, intralaminar thalamic nuclei (N. centralis and centre médian) were investigated. Although neuron populations projecting to the different cortical regions overlap widely, a coarse topology exists(More)
This paper addresses the question of a general topological principle of thalamo-cortical projections. In the lissencephalic primate brain of the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), large injections of horseradish peroxidase were made in various parts of the neocortex. These injections were placed in different animals and hemispheres along various(More)
A rapid increase in ependymin mRNA expression demonstrated by semiquantitative in situ hybridization after avoidance conditioning on goldfish suggested a molecular demand for newly synthesized ependymin translation product. To inhibit de novo synthesis of ependymin molecules without interference with preexisting ones, 18 mer anti-ependymin(More)
