piracetam facilitates retrieval but does not impair extinction of bar-pressing in rats.rats were trained on a continuously reinforced bar-press response for water reward. seven days later they were retested for retention, with or without pretest injection of the nootropic drug, piracetam. drug-treated animals had significantly shorter response latencies than saline-treated animals. the results are interpreted as a facilitation of retrieval processes after forgetting. the experiment was extended under extinction conditions and it was found that after three sessions there was a tend ...1979108722
effect of l-tryptophan on the acquisition of tolerance to ethanol-induced motor impairment and hypothermia.rats were rendered tolerant to ethanol by daily gavage of 4--5 g/kg. the degree of motor impairment on the moving belt test and of hypothermia after i.p. test doses of ethanol was measured prior to and at various times during the chronic treatment, to assess the rates of tolerance development. l-tryptophan (75 mg/kg twice daily) was administered chronically to elevate brain serotonin level. this treatment did not alter the motor impairment or hypothermia produced by the initial test doses of eth ...1979108729
enhanced responsiveness to intraventricular infusion of amphetamine following its repeated systemic administration.previous studies have demonstrated that long-term administration of d-amphetamine produces a progressive augmentation of behavior. in the present experiment, rats receiving repeated systemic injections responded to an intraventricular infusion of d-amphetamine with an augmented increase in locomotor activity. these results indicate that central mechanisms, rather than peripheral dispositional factors, subserve the enhanced behavioral response to repeated amphetamine administration.1979108743
comparison of tolerance development and dependence capacities of morphine, beta-endorphin, and [d-met2, pro5]-enkephalinamide.the tolerance-development capacities of beta-endorphin, [d-met2, pro5]-enkephalinamide, and morphine were compared in rats, and the dependence capacity of morphine was compared with that of the enkephalin analogue in mice. tolerance to the analgesic effect, as measured by the tail-flick test, developed somewhat more rapidly in the [d-met2, pro5]-enkephalinamide-treated group than in the others. a similar relationship was found for the dependence capacity. considering that the enkephalin analogue ...1979108745
cardiac imaging with tantalum-178.tantalum-178 is a potential tracer for the first transit studies of the heart. it has a short physical half-life (9.3 minutes) and is obtained as a generator product from its long-lived (21.3 days) parent, tungsten-178. first transit studies were performed in the monkey and dog following the intravenous injection of 20 mci (740 mbq) of tantalum-178. imaging was performed with a large field of view single crystal camera and a multicrystal camera. pulmonary dilution curves were derived for the ana ...1979108764
distribution of the hematozoa of neotropical birds.the literature pertaining to the prevalence of avian hematozoa in the neotropics, together with unpublished records from the files of the international reference centre for avian haematozoa, has been examined with respect to the distribution of parasite genera by host family and region. the blood parasites of 35555 birds of 955 species (80 families) occurring in the neotropics formed the basis for the comparisons. only 3743 (10.5%) individuals harbored one or more species of hematozoa. haemoprot ...1978108771

colivirus-t3-coded s-adenosylmethionine hydrolase.bacteriophage t3 induces an enzyme activity which hydrolyzes s-adenosylmethionine. this s-adenosylmethionine hydrolase is interesting, not only because of its unique activity, but also because the protein has to overcome host restriction [f. w. studier and n. r. movva (1976) j. virol. 19, 136-145]. s-adenosylmethionine hydrolase was purified to homogeneity using affinity chromatography on s-adenosylhomocysteine-sepharose. the enzyme occurs in two forms, a and b. form a consists of the viral pept ...1979110588
three types of mycolic acid from mycobacterium tuberculosis brévanne: implications for structure-function relationships in pathogenesis.saponification of the chloroform-soluble wax from mycobacterium tuberculosis brévanne led to the isolation of three classes of mycolic acid containing characteristic functional groups along the methylene backbone: type alpha (two cyclopropane rings); type beta (methoxyl, methyl, and cyclopropane); and type gamma (ketone, methyl, and cyclopropane). the structures of these acids were elucidated principally by mass spectrometry. the high mass region of the keto mycolate is presented showing the mer ...1979110779
transient in vivo protein adsorption onto polymeric biomaterials.the adsorption of albumin, gamma-globulin, and fibrinogen was measured on three ex vivo polymeric shunt surfaces [polyvinyl chloride (pvc), silastic, and segmented polyether urethane (biomer)] exposed to flowing heparinized, canine blood in vivo. small amounts of radiolabeled proteins were infused into anesthetized mongrel dogs and the deposition of radioactivity on the walls of femoral arteriovenous shunts was followed with time for two hours following initial blood-polymer contact. previously, ...197988452
antibiotic susceptibility of neisseria gonorrhoeae strains from europe and africa.the in vitro activities of 16 antimicrobial agents were tested by a plate dilution method against 268 unselected isolates of neisseria gonorrhoeae from belgium, rwanda, swaziland, and zaire. fifteen beta-lactamase-producing strains isolated in europe from various origins were also tested. there were significant regional variations in antimicrobial agent susceptibility, even among the african isolates, with the rwandan and zairean strains being most resistant. benzylpenicillin and ampicillin were ...1979111615
