C Fages, R Nolo, H J Huttunen, E Eskelinen, H Rauvala
2000 Journal of Cell Science  
INTRODUCTION Amphoterin (p30) is a developmentally regulated heparinbinding protein that is abundantly expressed in embryonic brain and in transformed cell lines (Rauvala and Pihlaskari, 1987; Rauvala  ...  Extracellular roles in neurite outgrowth, in neuron-glia interactions and in early phases of cell differentiation have been suggested for amphoterin (Rauvala and Pihlaskari, 1987; Rauvala et al., 1988  ...

Circumferential measurement of thoracic wall using a standard respiratory belt

1996 Journal of digital imaging  
Respiratory gating during imaging to reduce imaging artifacts involves the gathering of image data only at the end of the respiratory cycle. This is commonly performed by a pneumatic respiratory belt to monitor thoracic wall motion during respiration. Such gating has been used for magnetic resonance, computerized tomographic, and nuclear medicine imaging. The goal of this study was to measure the performance of a standard belt used for gating imaging studies. The standard respiratory belt

The belt was connected to a microcontroller-based pressure measurement unit that was connected to the standard RS-232C serial port of a computer. The signal was compared with that of a strain gauge respiration transducer. The response of the system was tested in vitro both for isometric and isotonic Ioading. The data measured from the pneumatic belt was linear with different weights of 50 to 1,400 grams with a coefficient of determination (R 2) of 0.999. The system was linear for different amounts of stretching (R 2 of 0.998) within the first 45 mm, which is enough for normal breathing. In vivo the pneumatic system seemed more accurate in measuring the constant stretching in apnea than the strain gauge respiratory belt. The results show that it is possible to use a standard pneumatic belt for accurate measurement of thoracic wall movement during imaging and for other purposes as well.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the day-to-day reproducibility of the delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC) measurement at different knee joint surfaces in healthy subjects at 1.5 Tesla (T). Methods: The dGEMRIC experiment was repeated for 10 asymptomatic volunteers three times with an average interval of 5 days between scans. The measurement was performed from a single sagittal slice through the center of the lateral femoral condyle and from the center

Cartilage was manually segmented into superficial, deep and full-thickness regions of interests (ROIs) at different topographical locations of the femur, tibia and patella. The reproducibility was evaluated separately for each ROI as well as for the entire bulk cartilage in the slice of each joint surface. Results: The reproducibility at various ROIs expressed by root-mean-square average coefficient of variation (CV RMS ) ranged between 4.7e12.9%. Thirty out of thirty-three ROIs showed a CV RMS less than 10%. Intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) ranged between 0.45 and 0.98. The CV RMS and ICC for bulk dGEMRIC were 4.2% and 0.95 for femur, 5.5% and 0.87 for tibia, and 4.8% and 0.97 for patella. Conclusions: The dGEMRIC technique showed good day-to-day reproducibility, on the average 8% for small deep or superficial segments, 7% for full-thickness ROIs and 5% for bulk ROIs covering all visible cartilage in a single joint surface. We conclude that dGEMRIC imaging at field strength 1.5 T can be used as a reliable instrument for the assessment of articular cartilage when staff has been carefully trained.

Long-term individual housing in C57BL/6J and DBA/2 mice: assessment of behavioral consequences

2004 Genes, Brain and Behavior  
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of individual housing on mouse behavior. The male mice of the C57BL/6J and DBA/2 strains were separated at the age of 4 weeks and kept in individual housing for 7 weeks until behavioral testing began. Their behavior was compared to the group-housed mice in a battery of tests during the following 7 weeks. The single-housed mice were hyperactive and displayed reduced habituation in the tests assessing activity and exploration. Reduced

Immobility in the forced swimming test was reduced by social isolation. The DBA mice displayed higher anxiety-like behavior than the B6 mice in the plus-maze and DL exploration test, but hyponeophagia was reduced in the DBA mice. Moreover, all effects of individual housing on the exploratory and emotional behavior were more evident in the DBA than in the B6 mice. Novel object recognition and fear conditioning (FC) were significantly impaired in the single-housed mice, whereas water-maze (WM) learning was not affected. Marked strain differences were established in all three learning tests. The B6 mice performed better in the object recognition and FC tasks. Initial spatial learning in the WM was faster and memory retention slightly enhanced in the B6 mice. The DBA mice displayed lower preference to the new and enhanced preference to the old platform location than the B6 mice after reversal learning in the WM. We conclude that individual housing has strong strain-and test-specific effects on emotional behavior and impairs memory in certain tasks.
