neural uptake of catecholamines and their molecular structures: a histopharmacologic study.using ultrastructural and histofluorescence methods, we investigated the uptake mechanism of catecholamines by the nerve terminals in the cutaneous smooth muscles of stump-tailed macaques (macaca arctoides). this in vivo approach ultilized the observed cytotoxic effects of 6-hydroxydopamine on these catecholamine-containing terminals and the protective effects of simultaneous treatment with catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine), their 3-0-methylated derivatives (metanephrine ...1998107369
phylogeny of the macaques (cercopithecidae: macaca) based on alu elements.genus macaca (cercopithecidae: papionini) is one of the most successful primate radiations. despite previous studies on morphology and mitochondrial dna analysis, a number of issues regarding the details of macaque evolution remain unsolved. alu elements are a class of non-autonomous retroposons belonging to short interspersed elements that are specific to the primate lineage. because retroposon insertions show very little homoplasy, and because the ancestral state (absence of the sine) is known ...200919497354
shared means and meanings in vocal expression of man and macaque.vocalisations of six macaca arctoides that were categorised according to their social context and judgements of naive human listeners as expressions of plea/submission, anger, fear, dominance, contentment and emotional neutrality, were compared with vowel samples extracted from simulations of emotional-motivational connotations by the finnish name saara and english name sarah. the words were spoken by seven finnish and 13 english women. humans and monkeys resembled each other in the following re ...200314582828
novelty-seeking temperament in captive stumptail macaques (macaca arctoides) and spider monkeys (ateles geoffroyi).novelty-seeking temperament is defined as the reaction to novel or risk situations and objects, and by the global disposition to explore such stimuli. our purpose was to describe and compare this trait in primates. for this purpose, a risk-taking index, a curiosity index, and a novelty-seeking index were correlated to several biosocial variables using 22 captive stumptail macaques (macaca arctoides) and 7 captive spider monkeys (ateles geoffroyi). spider monkeys scored higher than macaques, male ...201020476821
cloning of oestrogen receptor beta from old and new world primates: identification of splice variants and functional analysis.oestrogens have a major impact on reproductive function in both males and females. two oestrogen receptor genes known as eralpha (esr1nr3a1) and erbeta (esr2nr3a2) have been cloned. splice variant isoforms of the erbeta gene have been identified in human, bovine and rodents and it has been suggested that the existence of these forms can influence oestrogen responsiveness. in the human, splicing of an alternative eighth exon results in the formation of a c-terminal variant called herbetacx, or he ...200415171710
immunophenotypical characteristics of permanent cultures of lymphoid cells from papio hamadryas and macaca arctoides.immunophenotypical characteristics of primate cells were studied by enzyme immunoassay and flow cytofluorometry using a panel of monoclonal antibodies to human b- and t-lymphocyte antigens. specific features of immunophenotype of cultured cells were detected. simian lymphoid cultures consist of a mixture of b- and t-cells with mosaic antigenic structure expressing markers of b and t cell specificity.200415273772

[identification of the trim5/trimcyp heterozygous genotype in macaca assamensis].the lack of appropriate animal models that utilizes hiv-1 as the challenge virus is a major impediment to hiv/aids research. a major reason underlying the inability of hiv-1 to replicate in nonhuman primate cells is the existence of host antiviral restriction factors. the intrinsic antiviral proteins in host cells are described as restriction factors. the understanding of restriction factors and their mechanism in different primates would undoubtedly facilitate the development of hiv/aids animal ...201121341383
the sukhumi primate monkey model for viral lymphomogenesis: high incidence of lymphomas with presence of stlv-i and ebv-like virus.t-cell leukemia virus-like proviral sequences (stlv-i) as well as ebv-like sequences were detected in pbls and tissues of non-human primates (papio hamadryas baboons, green monkeys and macaca arctoides; sukhumi primate center/georgia) by pcr. surprisingly, two different types of stlv-i within papio hamadryas baboons were found. one of its represents the baboon prototype stlv-i-su described earlier, present in lymphomatous baboons from the "high-lymphoma stock", which shows about 83% homology to ...19938395624
estrogen receptor and aromatic hydrocarbon receptor in the primate ovary.we have previously shown by immunocytochemistry and autoradiography the presence of estrogen receptors (er) in rhesus monkey ovary. intense chromogen staining showed specific binding for er in nuclei of germinal epithelium and granulosa cells of antral follicles; and radiolabeled ligand bound specifically to functional corpora lutea (cl). although it is accepted that the germinal epithelium of the primate ovary contains er, some controversy still persists regarding the intraovarian localization ...199621153083
a potential aphrodisiac for female macaques.earlier studies suggest that alpha2-adrenoceptor antagonists and dopamine receptor agonists may enhance sexual activity in human and nonhuman male primates. it is not known whether these compounds influence the sexual behavior of female primates. we determined whether the administration of a selective alpha2-adrenoceptor antagonist (atipamezole), a dopamine receptor agonist (apomorphine), or their combination to female macaca arctoides (stumptail macaque) monkeys produces changes in sexual behav ...200415388293
local and landscape correlates of primate distribution and persistence in the remnant lowland rainforests of the upper brahmaputra valley, northeastern india.habitat fragmentation affects species distribution and abundance, and drives extinctions. escalated tropical deforestation and fragmentation have confined many species populations to habitat remnants. how worthwhile is it to invest scarce resources in conserving habitat remnants within densely settled production landscapes? are these fragments fated to lose species anyway? if not, do other ecological, anthropogenic, and species-related factors mitigate the effect of fragmentation and offer conse ...201424471780
discrimination learning and multiple reversals in young adult and older monkeys (macaca arctoides).two groups of five young adult an older stumptailed macaques (macaca arctoides) were tested on a visual discrimination task followed by a reversal upon attainment of criterion; task and reversal were repeated until 20 reversals with the same pair of objects had been completed. both groups required more trials to learn the first reversal than the original discrimination, with no significant difference between the groups. older monkeys tended to show more perseverative errors on early reversals, b ...19968828396

social preferences in stump-tailed macaques (macaca arctoides): effects of companionship, kinship, and preferences in the directionality of social behavioral patterns in a heterogeneous group of 26 stump-tailed macaques (macaca arctoides) were examined to see if kin recognition occurred. four behavioral measures were analyzed: proximity, contact, grooming, and play. three independent variables were examined: early companionship, condition of early rearing, and kinship. the latter was divided into partrilineal, matrilineal, and shared kinship. partial correlational analysis showed that soci ...19853979662
malignant lymphoma in a colony of macaca arctoides.malignant lymphoma occurred in six macaca arctoides from a colony of 83 animals during a 30-month period. the cells of two neoplasms had t cell markers. concurrent disease processes included atypical mycobacterial disease in four macaques and progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy in one.19853883635
sexual behavior of group-housed stumptail macaques (macaca arctoides): temporal, demographic and sociosexual relationships.a detailed quantitative analysis of sexual behavior in a social group of captive stumptail macaques was conducted. the distribution of copulations both over days and among animals, and the relationships between copulation and various sociosexual patterns were investigated. copulations occurred erratically over days and were preferentially directed to a small minority of females. most patterns of sociosexual behavior were at their highest rates during actual copulatory episodes, others occurred i ...19846469150
blood variables in adult stumptail macaques (macaca arctoides) living in a captive group; annual variability.monthly blood samples were collected for more than two years from adult stumptail macaques living in a large captive group. the social organization, feeding pattern, and food composition were stable throughout the study period. no seasonal variability was observed for any of the 30 blood variables studied. it appeared that for each variable, within-animal variance was small relative to between-animal variance. a table of means and reference ranges is presented and discussed.19873625757
reinnervation of hair follicle end organs and meissner corpuscles in skin grafts of macaques.plugs of occipital hairy scalp and pieces of digital pads were transplanted to the frontal scalp of stump-tailed macaques (macaca arctoides). both types of grafts grew well and retained their original appearance for several years. we traced the regrowth and reinnervation of hair follicles and meissner corpuscles in sequential biopsy specimens of these grafts. two weeks after transplantation, hair follicles in the grafts appeared to have lost all integrity but began to regrow after 4 weeks. the n ...19827035577
hemodynamic and echocardiographic evaluation of the stumptailed macaque: a potential nonhuman primate model for pulmonary vascular disease.stumptailed macaques (macaca arctoides) were evaluated as to their suitability as an animal model for pulmonary hypertension. animals used for this study were colony-bred. necropsy material from 63 animals revealed 32% with severe medial thickening of pulmonary arteries. twenty-nine stumptailed macaques underwent cardiac catheterization and m-mode echocardiography. hemodynamic measurement including pulmonary artery pressure response to 12% oxygen exposure identified three groups of animals with ...19873612762

protein-losing enteropathy in six macaques.using intravenous administration of radioactive labeled chromic chloride, which binds to plasma proteins, protein-losing enteropathy was documented in 6 macaques (macaca mulatta and macaca arctoides) with progressive weight loss and hypoalbuminemia. four clinically normal macaques lost 0.5% +/- 0.1% of the label in feces over 4 days, compared with the diseased macaques, which lost from 1.0%--14.2% of the dose during the same period. lesions in the small intestine (lymphangiectasia, amyloidosis o ...19807451327
studies on the vasoocclusive crisis of sickle cell disease. iii. in vitro and in vivo effect of the pyrimido-pyrimidine derivative, ra-233: studies on its mechanism of cell deformability was found to be impaired in ss- and sc-genotype and to a lesser extent sa-genotype red blood cells as compared with those of aa-genotype. ra-233 in vitro improved deformability according to a bell-shaped dose-response curve. ra-233 also prevented experimental vasoocclusive crisis in macaca arctoides. deoxygenation of ss-genotype red cells resulted in sickle shape transformation, atp depletion, potassium efflux, and attachment of hemoglobin molecules to the membrane. these ...19873480932
behavioral and physiological evidence of sexual climax in the female stump-tailed macaque (macaca arctoides).intense tonic/clonic uterine contractions and sudden increases in heart rate coincided with the behavioral homolog of a male ejaculatory response (minus seminal emission) in a normal female stump-tailed macaque engaged in homosexual mounting episodes. the behavioral patterns were also observed in four of ten females during 5 to 40 percent of heterosexual copulations. these observations demonstrate the existence of an orgasmic response in a nonhuman primate.19807384791
lactose intolerance in the stumptail macaque (macaca arctoides): case report.a female stumptail macaque had signs of intermittant diarrhea and chronic weight loss over a 2-year period during which she was fed a commercial laboratory maintenance diet. intolerance of this individual to lactose, a ubiquitous constituent of most commercial primate diets, was diagnosed on the basis of lactose tolerance tests and favorable clinical response to dietary carbohydrate substitution with glucose. oral administration of varying doses of glucose to this animal consistently produced el ...19806772876
characteristics of the menstrual cycle in nonhuman primates. iii. timed mating in macaca arctoides.analysis of five years of reproductive data from macaca arctoides showed the mean menstrual cycle length was 29.9 +/- 4.4 days. using timed mating, a conception rate of 16.3% was observed. the highest conception rate occurred after matings on day 11 of the cycle. eight pregnancies went to term and the mean gestation length was 172.4 days. the sex ratio was 137.8 males per 100 females in fetuses obtained on day 100 post-conception.19807420409
[the structure and patterns of support in the encounters of the brown macaque (macaca arctoides)].aid and cooperation in agonistic encounters have been studied in two groups of stumptail macaques keeping in the open-air cages of nature type. the basic agonistic ranks are found and the cases of aid in encounters are classified. a quantitative analysis using the coefficient reflecting the individual rank, kin and frequency of different aids is carried out. the existence of mechanisms of aggression removal within group is revealed, the role of individual ranks and kin in keeping stability in gr ...19892611299
lens extraction with anterior chamber lens implantation in the macaque.three macaques (macaca arctoides) had anterior chamber implantations with the choyce mark viii lenses in 5 eyes. the eyes were monitored clinically and histologically for approximately 2 years. histologic sections verified that these lenses were well tolerated in the eyes of the macaques.1979111587
characteristics of the menstrual cycle in nonhuman primates. ii. ovulation and optimal mating times in analysis of the results of 1,259 limited-duration matings was conducted on colonies of macaca arctoides and m. fascicularis. maximum conception occurred at a day of breeding/cycle length (db/cl) ratio of 0.40--0.41 with a range of db/cl ratios for successful matings from 0.39 to 0.44. these values are compared with published values for various endocrine parameters equated to cycle length.1979113545
characteristics of the menstrual cycle in nonhuman primates. i. similarities and dissimilarities between macaca fascicularis and macaca arctoides.comparative studies of reproductive characteristics were carried out on a colony of macaca fascicularis and m. arctoides. seasonal differences were not significant between species, and conceptions occurred throughout the year. the occurrence of short cycles ('luteal phase defect') was found in 2.9% of all m. fascicularis cycles and 1.5% of all m. arctoides cycles. long cycles (40-50 days) were found in 4.0% of all m. fascicularis cycles and 3.5% of all m. arctoides cycles. gestation lengths aver ...1979113537
