Abstract : This volume contains AFRRI Scientific Reports SR88-10 through SR88-19 for Apr-Jun 1988. Contents: Radiation: Behavioral implications in space; Electron Spin Response (ESR) and spin trapping of free radicals produced in poly U and poly A using the boron neutron capture reaction; Age-related decrements in the muscarinic enhancement of K+-evoked release of endogenous striatal dopamine: an indicator of altered cholinergic-dopaminergic reciprocal inhibitory control in senescence; Alterations in muscarinic control of striatal dopamine autoreceptors in senescence: a deficit at the ligand-muscarinic receptor interface?; Flow cytometric characterization of rat thymus cells in a radiation dominated model of combined injury; Opposite effects of WR-2721 and WR-1065 on radiation-induced hypothermia: Possible correlation with oxygen uptake; Long-term effects of radioprotector WR-2721 on locomotor activity and body weight of mice following exposure to ionizing radiation; Effects of a phorbol ester on rat aortic contraction and calcium influx in the presence and absence of BAY k 8644; Quantitative, functional and biochemical alterations in the peritoneal cells of mice exposed to whole body gamma irradiation. I. Changes in cellular protein, adherence properties and enzymatic activities associated with platelet-activating factor formation and inactivation, and arachidonate metabolism; Magnetic resonance imaging and contrast enhancement.
