Psychosocial stress-related changes in gene expression of norepinephrine biosynthetic enzymes in stellate ganglia of adult rats
(Autonomic Neuroscience: Basic and Clinical, 2009)
In this study we investigated the changes in norepinephrine biosynthetic enzymes tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), dopamine beta-hydroxylase (DBH) and phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PNMT) gene expression in the stellate ...
A dilogarithmic integral arising in quantum field theory
(Journal of Mathematical Physics, 2009)
Recently, an interesting dilogarithmic integral arising in quantum field theory has been closed-form evaluated in terms of the Clausen function Cl(2)(theta) by Coffey [J. Math. Phys. 49, 093508 (2008)]. It represents the ...
In memory of Ljubomir Jovanovic (1935-2009)

Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein Functions of Negative Integer Order
(Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, 2009)
We find simple explicit closed-form formulas for the Fermi-Dirac function F(-n)(z) and Bose-Einstein function B(-n)(z) for arbitrary n is an element of N. The obtained formulas involve the higher tangent numbers defined ...
Effect of immobilization stress on gene expression of catecholamine biosynthetic enzymes in heart auricles of socially isolated rats
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2009)
Chronic stress is associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. The sympathoneural system plays an important role in the regulation of cardiac function both in health and disease. In the present study, the ...
Influence of Organic Cations Sorption on the Point of Zero Charge of Natural Zeolite
(Hemijska industrija, 2009)
In this paper, the results of the surface modification of natural zeolite with different amounts (2, 5 and 10 mmol M(+)/100 g) of octadecyldimethylbenzyl ammonium ions (ODMBA) are presented. The obtained organozeohtes were ...
Inapplicability of Small-Polaron Model for the Explanation of Infrared Absorption Spectrum in Acetanilide
(Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, 2009)
The applicability of small-polaron model for the interpretation of infrared absorption spectrum in acetanilide has been critically reexamined. It is shown that the energy difference between the normal and anomalous peak. ...
Inhibition of Mitochondrial Na-Dependent Ca2+ Efflux from Rat Brain Stem By 17 Beta-Estradiol
(Archives of biological sciences, 2009)
The role of membrane-bound estradiol in modulation of mitochondrial Ca2+ flux in nerve endings isolated from rat brain stem was examined. Physiological concentrations of 17 beta-estradiol bind specifically to isolated ...
The effect of acute or/and chronic stress on the MnSOD protein expression in rat prefrontal cortex and hippocampus
(General Physiology and Biophysics, 2009)
Manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) is the major antioxidant in mitochondria that protect brain from neuroendocrine stress. Although MnSOD is localized in the mitochondria, the immediate subcellular distribution of MnSOD ...
