In the last quarter of the embryonic development of rat and shortly after a termination of neurogenesis, the transformation of the spinal cord primitive lumen (pL) to the central canal (CC) occurs. In this work, we show that this phenomenon is not an insignificant event but it is directly associated with the processes of gliogenesis. Using a light(More)
1. To test our hypothesis that a transient nonlethal ischemic insult benefits the lumbosacral spinal cord ischemic injury, nestin, the marker of proliferating cells, and Fluoro-Jade B, the marker of degenerating cells, were used in rats. Morphological outcome was evaluated after 12-min ischemia versus 12-min ischemia preconditioned by 3-min ischemic period(More)
Labelling of DNA in replicating cells using 5-bromo-2´-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is widely used, however the rapid clearance and metabolisation of BrdU in the living organism is a critical issue. Although the pharmacokinetic of BrdU in experimental animals is empirically approximated, the exact time-curve remains unknown. Here we present novel method for(More)
The Balkan endemic species, Hypericum rumeliacum, Guttiferae was introduced in vitro for the first time with the aim to study the type of morphogenetic response to plant growth regulators and ability to produce phenolics and flavonoid compounds. The morphoregulatory effect of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), 1-naphtaleneacetic acid (NAA),(More)
Despite the abundance of cerebrospinal fluid-contacting neurons (CSF-cNs) lining the central canal of the spinal cord of mammals, little information is known regarding the phenotype and fate of these cells during development and in adulthood. Using immunofluorescence of spinal cord tissue of rats from the first postnatal day (P1) until the end of the 5th(More)
In rodents, peroral (p.o.) administration of 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdU) dissolved in drinking water is a widely used method for labeling newly formed cells over a prolonged time-period. Despite the broad applicability of this method, the pharmacokinetics of BrdU in rats or mice after p.o. administration remains unknown. Moreover, the p.o. route of(More)
Pathogenesis of amyloid-related diseases is associated with the presence of protein amyloid deposits. Insulin amyloids have been reported in a patient with diabetes undergoing treatment by injection of insulin and causes problems in the production and storage of this drug and in pplication of insulin pumps. We have studied the interference of insulin(More)
Beta-glucans are immunomodulators able to activate innate immunity and to potentiate acquired immune reactions. We investigated the impact of co-administration of liposomized beta-glucan on the larvicidal effect of the anthelmintic praziquantel (PZQ) in the livers and peritoneal cavities in mice infected with Mesocestoides vogae (M. corti). Also, within 2(More)
We have screened a library of structurally distinct acridine derivatives (19 compounds) for their ability to inhibit lysozyme amyloid aggregation in vitro. Studied acridines were divided into three structurally different groups depending on the molecule planarity and type of the side chain—planar acridines, spiroacridines and tetrahydroacridines.(More)
Despite extensive investigations of gliogenesis, the time of origin of ependymal cells in the spinal cord has not yet been fully elucidated. Using a single dose of 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine combined with various survival times we monitored: mitotic activity (short survival time), the presence of newly formed cells in the ventricular zone (intermediate survival(More)
