Localization of wheat germ agglutinin lectin receptors on human sperm by fluorescence microscopy: Utilization of different fixatives
Wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) and Concanavalin A (Con A) seem to be the most widely studied of the lectins used to investigate sperm surface receptors. It has been reported that WGA receptors on human sperm membranes may be ...
Evidence that noradrenergic neuronsin the A1 and A2 nuclei are lesioned by low doses of 6-OHDA injected into the locus coeruleus
In order to determine the specificity of a lesion aimed at the locus coeruleus (LC), various doses of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA), a neurotoxin which selectively lesions catecholaminergic neurons, were bilaterally infused ...
The effect of iron fortification on the fatty acid composition of plasma and erythrocyte membranes in primary school children with and without iron-deficiency
An intervention study was designed to evaluate the fatty acid (FA) status of children aged 6-11 years before and after iron fortification. Iron deficient (ID) and matched controls without ID (n = 30) were selected. All ...
Decreased hippocampal noradrenaline does not affect corticosterone release following electrical stimulation of CA1 pyramidal cellsDecreased hippocampal noradrenaline does not affect corticosterone release following electrical stimulation of CA1 pyramidal cells
Bipolar electrodes were implanted into the CA1 pyramidal cells of the dorsal hippocampus and the effect of electrical stimulation of these cells on corticosterone secretion was investigated in freely moving rats. Histology ...
Lack of effect of bilateral locus coeruleus lesion and antidepressant treatment on gamma-aminobutyric acid(B) receptors in the rat frontal cortexLack of effect of bilateral locus coeruleus lesion and antidepressant treatment on gamma-aminobutyric acid(B) receptors in the rat frontal cortex
The aim of the present study was to investigate whether a disturbance of the central noradrenergic (NA) system could cause changes in gamma- aminobutyric acid(B) (GABA(B)) receptors in the rat frontal cortex. Manipulation ...
