The effects of long-term daily melatonin infusions on the melatonin synthetic pathway in the Harderian glands and eyes of male Siberian hamsters were studied. Hamsters were pinealectomized (PX) and infused daily for 8 hr with either melatonin (6 microg/hr) or vehicle for 7 days in short photoperiod (SP, 10L:14D), followed by 14 wk in either SP (SP group) or(More)
Melatonin content and release from Harderian glands (HGs) has been measured by an in vitro perifusion technique in three rodent species: Wistar rat, Syrian hamster, and Siberian hamster. Melatonin immunoreactive concentrations in HGs of animals killed at 10.00 hr were 0.31 +/- 0.031 pg/mg gland in male Wistar rat, 0.54 +/- 0.026 pg/mg gland in male Siberian(More)
The Harderian gland is considered as being an extrapineal source of melatonin. In most rodents, the Harderian gland contains two epithelial cell types (I and II). The aim of this study has been to define which cell type is involved in indoleamine synthesis. The presence and localization of serotonin (melatonin precursor) and tryptophan hydroxylase (the(More)
Dépôt de couches minces par plasma haute densité à basse pression : influence de l'injection de silane sur la cinétique du dépôt et les propriétés de la silice. Acknowledgements I would like to thank the following people, without whom this work would not have been possible: Prof. Bernard Drévillon, for the opportunity to do my PhD under his supervision.(More)
The aims of the current investigation were (1) to establish an efficient procedure for the isolation of rodent harderian gland cells and to define conditions for maintenance of viable differentiated cells; (2) to compare the in vitro growth pattern of cultured epithelial cells; and (3) to characterise the cultured epithelial cells from 3 rodent species:(More)
