Abstract : This volume contains AFRRI Scientific Reports SR92-27 through SR92-38 for July-September 1992. Contents: Peroxide effects on (3H)L-glutamate release by synaptosomes isolated from the cerebral cortex; Effect of prostaglandins, inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate, and phorbol esters on radiation-induced decrease in calcium influx in rat brain synaptosomes. Surgical and pharmacological dissociation of cardiovascular and emetic responses to intragastric CuSO; Increased resistance to ionizing and ultraviolet radiation in Escherichia coli JM83 is associated with a chromosomal rearrangement. Cisplatin-induced conditioned taste aversion: attenuation by dexamethasone but not zacopride or GR38032F. Role of glutathione in repair of free radical damage in hippocampus in vitro; Is all radiation-induced emesis ameliorated by 5-HT3 receptor antagonists?; Emesis in ferrets following exposure to different types of radiation: A dose-response study; Radioprotection by vitamin E: Injectable vitamin E administered alone or with WR-3689 enhances survival of irradiated mice; Application of high-performance liquid chromatography assay for monitoring kinetics of interconversions of stereoisomers of thymidine glycol; Effects of interleukin-1 on the stress-responsive and -nonresponsive subtypes of corticotropin-releasing hormone neurosecretory axons; The hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in rodents: Corticotropin releasing hormone/vasopressin co-existence and cytokine effects.
