Disease relevance of Cercopithecus


High impact information on Cercopithecus

  • This study in the African green monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) was designed to characterize the neurochemical features of hippocampal nonpyramidal neurons that are specific synaptic targets of substance P-containing projective neurons located in the supramammillary nucleus [5].
  • Although it harbors a vpu gene, SIVden is phylogenetically closer to SIVdeb isolated from De Brazza's monkeys (Cercopithecus neglectus), which lacks a vpu gene, than to Cercopithecus monkey viruses, which harbor a vpu sequence [6].
  • Psyllium's effects on plasma and lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations, cholesterol metabolism, and diet-induced atherosclerosis were studied in adult male African green monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) [7].
  • We have now cloned and sequenced the involucrin gene of four cercopithecoid monkeys--two macaques (mulatta and fascicularis) and two Cercopithecus monkeys (aethiops and hamlyni) [8].
  • Formazan cells were less numerous in the peripheral blood of vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) receiving a "O" protein-low calorie diet than in animals fed a full or a protein but not calorie deficient diet [9].

Chemical compound and disease context of Cercopithecus

  • Characterization of a primate model of hypertension. The response of hypertensive and normotensive male vervets (Cercopithecus aethiops) to cold pressor stress, captopril administration, and acute bolus of atrial natriuretic factor [10].
  • Residual neurovirulence of measles virus vaccine strains "Leningrad-16", "Moscow-5" and of cloned variant of L-16 strain--clone 3, differing in the degree of attenuation, was studied in intracerebrally (i.c.) infected Cercopithecus aethiops monkeys, receiving cortisone and/or antilymphocyte serum (ALS) [11].
