We have examined immunocytochemically the expression, localization and in vivo function of a calcium-dependent and galactose-binding 14 x 10(3) Mr lectin purified from the budding tunicate, Polyandrocarpa misakiensis. Lectin granules first appeared in the inner epithelium of a double-walled bud vesicle. Soon after the bud entered the developmental phase,(More)
Dopamine (DA) has been suggested to modulate functions of glial cells including microglial cells. To reveal the regulatory role of DA in microglial function, in the present study, we investigated the effect of DA on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced nitric oxide (NO) production in murine microglial cell line BV-2. Pretreatment with DA for 24 h(More)
