A procedure is described which permits the isolation from the prepuberal mouse testis of highly purified populations of primitive type A spermatogonia, type A spermatogonia, type B spermatogonia, preleptotene primary spermatocytes, leptotene and zygotene primary spermatocytes, pachytene primary spermatocytes and Sertoli cells. The successful isolation of(More)
Using a radioimmunoassay towards bovine neurotensin(NT), chicken NT has been purified to homogeneity from extracts of intestine and its amino acid sequence determined to be: less than Glu-Leu-His-Val-Asn-Lys-Ala-Arg-Arg-Pro-Tyr-Ile-Leu-OH. The molecule is identical to the bovine peptide except for the 3 amino acid substitutions located in its NH2-terminal(More)
Using radioimmunoassay and 3 region specific antisera toward bovine neurotensin (NT), the NT-like peptides in chicken have been shown to differ from NT but to strongly resemble its COOH-terminal region. Three substances were identified, one of which resembled NT biologically and appeared to share 7 or 8 of its COOH-terminal residues. The two other peptides(More)
A human male-specific Y-chromosomal DNA fragment (lambda YH2D6) has been isolated. By deletion-mapping analysis, 2D6 has been localized to the euchromatic portion of the long arm (Yq11) of the human Y chromosome. Among great apes, this fragment was found to be conserved in male chimpanzee but was lacking in male gorilla and male orangutan. No homologous(More)
Using radioimmunoassay, peptides resembling the C-terminal region of bovine neurotensin (NT) have been demonstrated in acid/acetone extracts of Rhodopseudomonas palustris, Escherichia coli, and Caulaobacter crescentus. The NT-like bacterial components were shown to behave as peptides of small molecular weight (less than 2000) which were stable to acid and(More)
