Topics from this paper

Relationship between Erythrocyte Fatty Acid Composition and Psychopathology in the Vienna Omega-3 Study
Altered FA metabolism may contribute to the neurobiology of psychopathology in UHR individuals, and membrane FA alterations may play a role in negative symptoms, which are primary psychopathological manifestations of schizophrenia-related disability. Expand
Metachromatic Form of Diffuse Cerebral Sclerosis
Urine findings, properly interpreted, have permitted a diagnosis of this demyelinating disease of the central nervous system for the first time during life of the metachromatic form of diffuse cerebral sclerosis. Expand
Growth of thalamic afferents into mouse barrel cortex.
Thalamocortical afferent growth into somatosensory cortex as the whisker barrels emerge in postnatal mice is studied, finding the selection mechanism appears to result from within-group reinforcement events that are stronger for branches toward the center of each whisker-related Gaussian distribution.

Demyelination and early remyelination in experimental allergic encephalomyelitis passively ransferred with myelin basic protein-sensitized lymphocytes in the Lewis rat
The neurological signs of passively induced MBP-EAE can be accounted for by demyelination of the lumbar, sacral and coccygeal spinal roots and spinal cord root entry and exit zones, and that the subsequent clinical recovery can be explained by investment and remyelined peripheral and central nervous system fibres by Schwann cells and oligodendrocytes respectively.

Solubility in chloroform-methanol provides a useful tool for the study of this class of hydrophobic proteins in the nervous system specifically, where they constitute the major protein of CNS myelin. Expand

This review will deal with the molecular biology of bacteriophage PM2, and a brief comparison between PM2 and other lipid-containing viruses. Expand
Proteolipids are general tissue constituents usually associated with membranous structures and that, in addition to their unusual solubility properties, they are characterized by resistance to most proteolytic enzymes and by a pattern of amino acid composition that may vary according to the source of the proteolipid but retains throughout the group some special characteristics.

Chloroform-methanol appears to extract only protein and hexosamine of the dense band (CNS+R) alongside all the loosely bound lipids, indicating that the proteolipid of the central nervous system is derived only from the denseBand of electron microscopy. Expand
