Pain - It has been reported that NPY modulates nociception at different levels in the central nervous system. At the spinal level, it was shown that intrathecal injection of NPY can be anti-nociceptive and pronociceptive in uninjured animals models depending on the dose due to biphasic dose-effect curves (39,40). Experiments with Y1 knockout mice suggest that Y1 receptors contribute to the antinociceptive effects of intrathecal NPY in rodent models of acute nociception (41). After experimentally-induced nerve injury, NPY gene expression is upregulated within the population of medium- and large-diameter DRG neurons of the A beta-fiber class and follows a time course which is consistent with the development of tactile hypersensitivity-induced allodynia (42). NPY microinjection into the n. gracilis of uninjured rats induced reversible tactile allodynia, but not thermal hypersensitivity, in the ipsilateral hindpaw. In addition, NPY anti-serum and the NPY Y1 receptor antagonist BIBO 3304...

To understand the function of a biological membrane like that of chloroplast thylakoids, it is important to understand the arrangement of its different protein and lipid components. Preparations that have proven to be particularly suited for such studies are those consisting of membrane vesicles that are turned inside-out. Inside-out vesicles from the thylakoid membrane were first obtained from spinach chloroplasts by a combination of mechanical fragmentation and separation by aqueous two-phase partition (1,2). By the same or very similar procedures, inside-out thylakoid vesicles have now also been obtained from other plant sources such as pea (3), barley (4), mangrove (Avicennia marina) (5), lettuce (6), Euglena gracilis (7), cyanobacteria (8,9) and the photosynthetic bacteria Rhodopseudomonas viridis (10). Because the isolation procedure does not involve the use of detergents, the inside-out thyla-koids have a preserved membrane structure and are ideally suited for...

Weight-lifting can be very tricky, particularly if you are loading on the weights. If you are beginning a weight-lifting program at a fitness club, get instructions on how to use the machines that target certain muscle groups. You will want to make sure that you are using the correct technique before you add more weight. As we age, the knee joint deteriorates faster because it has had a lifetime of absorbing the greatest weight of any joints compared to its size. While hip joints are absorbing your weight as well, they are larger joints that can distribute your weight over your pelvic bones.
Pneumonia secondary to aspiration of gastric or oral secretions is common and occurs in the community setting. The most common agents are primarily the oral anaerobes such as black-pigmented Pmotella and Porphyromonas spp., Prevotella oris P. buccae, P. disims.Bac-teroides gracilis, fusobacteria, and anaerobic and micro-aerophilic streptococd. The anaerobic agents possess many factors, such as extracellular enzymes and capsules that may enhance their ability to produce disease-It is their presence, however, in an abnormal site within the host producing lowered oxidation-reduction potential secondary to tissue damage that contributes most to their pathogenidty. Staphylococcus aureus, various Ente-robacteriaceae, and Pseudomonas may also be acquired by aspiration Haemophilus influenzae, Legionella spp
Most arthroscopic spinal procedures are performed when the patient is in a prone position. This positioning becomes more critical when biportal access to the intervertebral disc is utilized. The available bolsters (US Medical, Paoli, PA) are comfortable and well padded. They provide ample room for the rib cage and adequate support for the patient's iliac crest and anterior superior iliac spine, thereby allowing reversal of lumbar lordosis (Fig. 9A), slight flexion of the hip joints, and widening of the dimensions of the foramen, so that the inserted instruments can be passed into the foramen and triangular working zone.
Parallel muscles are long, straplike muscles of uniform width and parallel fascicles. They can span a great distance and shorten more than other muscle types, but they are weaker than fusiform muscles. Examples include the rectus abdominis of the abdomen, sartorius of the thigh, and zygomaticus major of the face. 4. Pennate9 muscles are feather-shaped. Their fascicles insert obliquely on a tendon that runs the length of the muscle, like the shaft of a feather. There are three types of pennate muscles unipennate, in which all fascicles approach the tendon from one side (for example, the palmar interosseous muscles of the hand and semimembranosus of the thigh) bipennate, in which fascicles approach the tendon from both sides (for example, the rectus femoris of the thigh) and multipennate, shaped like a bunch of feathers with their quills converging on a single point (for example, the deltoid of the shoulder).

Most muscles that act on the femur (table 10.17) originate on the os coxae. The two principal anterior muscles are the iliacus, which fills most of the broad iliac fossa of the pelvis, and the psoas major, a thick, rounded muscle that originates mainly on the lumbar vertebrae. Collectively, they are called the iliopsoas (ILL-ee-oh-SO-us) (fig. 10.30). They converge on a single tendon that inserts on the femur and flexes the hip joint for example, when you bend forward at the waist, swing the leg forward in walking, or raise the thigh in a marching stance. On the lateral and posterior sides of the hip are the tensor fasciae latae and three gluteal muscles the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus (figs. 10.31 and 10.34). The gluteus maximus is the largest muscle of this group and forms most of the mass of the buttocks. It is an extensor of the hip joint that produces the backswing of the leg in walking and provides most of the lift when you climb stairs. It generates the...
In humans, unlike other organs such as the liver, heart, or lung, the AT does not have a well-defined tissue demarcation. Fat under the skin or dermis is referred to as subcutaneous AT, whether it lies under the skin of the abdomen, extremities, or other parts of the body. Fat found in the visceral cavity of the body is largely referred to as intraabdominal or omental AT. In humans, the subcutaneous (sc) and the omental forms are the two large AT depots that have been studied in detail, whereas smaller AT depots, such as those behind the eyes (retro-orbital), knees (periarticular), around the hip joints, or beneath the skull, have received little attention. It is unclear whether, in addition to these differences in the anatomical location of AT, there are physiological differences as well between these AT depots. Assuming that AT in the different anatomical sites has similar functions would be an oversimplification. Unfortunately, little is known about the physiological differences...
Bacteroides ureolyticus reduces nitrate and requires formate and fumarate for growth in broth culture. Its disk pattern is the same as for the fusobacteria however colony moiphology is different. B. ureolyticus forms small, translucent to transparent colonies that may corrode the agar, whereas the Fusobacterium colony is generally larger and more opaque. B. ureolyticus formerly was grouped with organisms that have been transferred to the genus Campylobacter (C. gracilis, C. concisus, C. recta, and C. curva).
During arthroscopic or endoscopic spinal surgery, the paraspinal muscles, namely the erector spinalis, sacrospinalis, quadratus lumbrorum, and psoas major, are not severed, stripped, or retracted. A small soft-tissue dilator with a 4.9-mm outer diameter (od) has a tendency to separate the muscle fibers and descend toward the annulus at the index level. This reduces the postoperative morbidity and eliminates potential denervation and muscle injury (17-20). The derangement of the muscle fibers and massive scar formation may be readily observed in postoperative MRI studies of patients who have been exposed to traditional open spinal surgery (Fig. 7).

Traditional anatomic dissections show that the glandular tissue consists of 15 to 20 lobes or segments containing ducts that branch and subdivide into smaller ducts as they extend into the deeper glandular tissue. The end units of the smallest ducts are composed of milk-forming lobules that drain radially through the ducts toward the nipple. Each lobe has its own segmental duct into which all the ducts from that lobe drain. There are wide lactiferous sinuses in the subareolar region each of these receives the drainage from one or more segmental ducts. Each lactiferous duct then narrows as it passes through the nipple. This narrowed duct in the nipple is called a collecting duct. Sartorius (1986) has demonstrated that the nipple contains only five to seven collecting ducts.
