Antiviral Resistance of Splenocytes in Aged Mice

We compared the susceptibility to viral infection of splenocytes, isolated from young versus old CBA mice, and evaluated the antiviral actions of lactoferrin in splenocytes infected with Encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV). Recombinant mouse lactoferrin (rmLF) and bovine lactoferrin (bLF) were used. There were no differences in the susceptibility to EMCV infection in the studied age categories. Both types of lactoferrins were protective in young and old mice. The study confirmed the undisturbed

High-dose 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D supplementation elongates the lifespan of Huntington’s disease transgenic mice

a transgenic mouse model of Huntington’s disease. Methods: Our study was performed on N171-82Q Huntington’s disease transgenic mice in age- and gender-matched groups. We collected data on the motor state and survival of the mice. Results: The results demonstrate that though vitamin D3 had no effect on the motor performance of transgenic mice, but significantly increased the lifespan of transgenic animals (Kaplan-Meier survival curves: vehicle-supplemented group

Furthermore, convulsion development occurs independently of the hypoglycemic consequence of food deprivation (Enginar et al., 2005). In cortical electroencephalogram recordings, epileptiform discharges were observed in antimuscarinic–induced convulsions in food–deprived mice following food intake (Nurten et al., 2006).

Given the similarity between changes produced by social stress in animals and symptoms of certain human psychopathologies such as depression and anxiety, the effects of the antidepressant clomipramine on IA impairment produced by CSDS were evaluated in the present study.

Hallmark features of OCD patients are similarities and, more prominent, differences from anxiety disorders, e.g., the absence of sex differences and resistance to spontaneous remission. We report an experiment on marble burying by male and female C57/BL6/N mice. Animals were administered either the classic anxiolytic drug, diazepam, that targets the GABA

Behavioral verification of associative learning in whisker-related fear conditioning in mice

Fear-conditioning is one of the most widely used paradigms in attempts to unravel the processes and mechanisms underlying learning and plasticity. In most Pavlovian conditioning paradigms an auditory stimulus is used as the conditioned stimulus (CS), but conditioning to a tactile CS can also be accomplished. The whisker-to-barrel tactile system in mice offers a convenient way to investigate the brain pathways and mechanisms of learning and plasticity of the cerebral cortex. To support the claim

Mice and rats treated with antimuscarinic drugs after fasting for two days or less develop convulsions after being allowed to eat ad libitum.

Moreover, memory deficits induced by the treatment with HMGB1 were prevented in RAGE knockout mice (Mazarati et al., 2011). FPS-ZM1 is a high-affinity RAGE antagonist, permeable to the blood-brain barrier that binds to the V domain of RAGE. In rodents, FPS-ZM1 was able to inhibit RAGE-mediated influx of circulating Aβ40 and Aβ42 into the brain (Deane et al., 2012). In addition, FPS-ZM1 inhibited β-secretase activity, thus

In contrast, morphine causes somnolence-like depressive activity (Wiffen et al., 2014) but also exhibits locomotor activity, as an excitatory effect (Babbini and Davis, 1972), indicating that morphine activates relatively direct CNS mechanisms, rather than enhancing cortical hyperexcitability or alertness, to increase locomotor activity. Moreover, morphine is an opioid that affects the electrical activities of the nucleus accumbens and striatum and increases movement in mice (Reakkamnuan et

Experimental Materials and Methods Animals. Male ICR (Institute of Cancer Research) mice aged six weeks were purchased from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai, China). The Ethics Committee approved all experimental procedures for Laboratory Animals at the Ningxia University. Mice were kept

Review: complement receptor 1 therapeutics for prevention of immune hemolysis

anemia (AIHA). Complement receptor 1 (CR1) is a large single-pass glycoprotein that is expressed on a variety of cell types in blood, including RBCs and immune cells. Among its multiple functions is its ability to inhibit complement activation. Furthermore, gene knockout studies in mice implicate a role for CR1 (along with the alternatively spliced gene product CR2) in prevention of autoimmunity. This review discusses the possibility that the CR1 protein may be manipulated to prevent and treat AIHA

Characterization of three novel monoclonal anti-Oka

Anti-Oka was first described by Morel and Hamilton in 1979. The Oka antigen has a very high incidence, and only eight probands that are Ok(a–) have been found; all are of Japanese heritage. In this study, we describe the generation and characterization of three novel monoclonal antibodies (Mabs), MIMA-25, MIMA-144, and MIMA-149. The reactivity of these three Mabs was compared with the original human polyclonal anti-Oka. Mice were immunized with transfected HEK cells to induce an immune

Age‑dependent concomitant changes in synaptic function and GABAergic pathway in the APP/PS1 mouse model

of the disruption documented in the glutamate system. To build on previous research in this field, experiments were designed to determine if previously documented synaptic dysfunction in AD models is concomitantly observed with excitation/inhibition imbalance as suggested by observation of seizure and seizure‑like pathology in such models. We report changes in synaptic function in aged APPPS1 mice not observable in the younger cohort. These changes in synaptic function are furthermore accompanied

Nucleus accumbens local field potential power spectrums, phase-amplitude couplings and coherences following morphine treatment

In the past decade, neural processing has been extensively studied in cognitive neuroscience. However, neural signaling in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) that might clarify reward process remained to be investigated. Male Swiss albino ICR mice implanted with intracranial electrodes into the NAc and the ventral tegmental area (VTA) were used for morphine administration and local field potential (LFP) recording. One-way ANOVA revealed significant increases in low (30.3–44.9 Hz) and high (60.5–95.7

Protective effects of M8-B, a TRPM8 antagonist, on febrile- and pentylenetetrazol-induced seizures

-, and ligand-gated ion channel (Voets et al., 2007). Menthol is a TRPM8 agonist with well-known cooling attribute. Intravenous administration of this substance makes animals prefer warmer places, indicating its important role in the modulation of temperature. Previous studies have shown that TRPM8 knock-out (KO) mice exhibit a disturbed perception of coldness (Bautista et al., 2007) with an absence of normal avoidance response to harmful coldness (Dhaka et al., 2007). Activation of TRPM8 increases

The production, serologic evaluation, and epitope mapping of ten murine monoclonal Dombrock antibodies

The Dombrock (Do) glycoprotein is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked membrane protein carrying Dombrock blood group antigens. There are no standardized typing reagents for Doa or Dob. We have developed ten different monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) that are specific for Dombrock. The objectives of this study were to characterize these MoAbs serologically and determine the epitopes they recognize. MoAbs were generated by standard fusion methods. Mice were immunized with transfected human
