In several communications we have reported that the injection of solutions of strychnin, morphin or acid fuchsin in cardiectomized frogs is liable to bring on convulsions of these animals. The lymph hearts continue to beat for a while after the cardiectomy. But since the lymph hearts assist the circulation only by emptying their contents into veins, it seemed to be evident that the removal of the blood heart eliminates also the circulatory function of the lymph hearts. I have therefore assumed…

Proteoglycans and Wound Repair

This chapter discusses not only proteoglycans, but also hyaluronic acid, which is not covalently bound to protein and therefore does not qualify as a proteoglycan, but since hyaluonic acid with its repeating disaccharide structure belongs to the family of glycosaminoglycan and has important biologic functions, it is included.

Immunocytochemical in vivo localization of fibronectin-rich contact sites on fibroblasts of normal periodontal ligament and inflamed gingiva.

Fibroblast-to-matrix attachment sites were studied by routine electron microscopy and immunocytochemistry and indicated that the attachment plaques were larger, irregular in shape, and with greater amounts of extracellular amorphous material and fibronectin associated to the cell surface in inflamed gingiva.

Cytoskeletal organization of migrating retinal pigment epithelial cells during wound healing in organ culture.

Changes in cell shape, in the organization of microfilaments, and in cell-cell and cell-substratum interactions during this time were examined by epifluorescence and transmission electron microscopy.
