Action of the Hypothalamic Proline-Rich Peptide During Vestibular Compensation Following Unilateral Labyrinthectomy Abstract #799

Introduction: There are uncovered mechanisms of the vestibular compensation (VC), following unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL). We consider the hypothalamic proline-rich peptide (PRP-1) action on Deiters’ lateral vestibular nucleus (LVN) neurons upon dynamics of recovery after UL was carried out.
Aim(s): Early and late tetanic, post-tetanic potentiation and depression of neurons to bilateral high frequency stimulation of hypothalamic supraoptic and paraventricualar nuclei was studied. The analysis of spike activity by on-line selection and software package was produced.
Materials and methods: The complex averaged peri event time and frequency histograms were constructed. The increase of inhibitory and excitatory reactions of Deiters’ neurons at early stage of VC following PRP-1 injection reaching the norm at late stage was revealed. Moreover, the shifts of post-stimulus activation are relatively more expressive when high frequency stimulation by 100Hz.

#790 Cerebellar and hypothalamic regulation of vestibular compensation after unilateral labyrinthectomy in rat
Introduction: The mechanisms of inhibitory regulation of neuronal activity of the vestibular system in health and in the vestibular compensation (VC) occurred with participation of the cerebellum, while non-cerebellar pathways are essential in restoring the stability of visual orientation during movement.

#798 Neuroendocrine Functions and Labyrinthectomy
Introduction: We tested the action of proline-rich peptide (PRP-1) and cobra venom Naja Naja Oxiana (NOX) on Deiters' nucleus neurons at 3rd, 15th and 35th days after unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL). Early and late tetanic, post-tetanic potentiation and depression of Deiters' neurons to bilateral high frequency stimulation of hypothalamic supraoptic and paraventricualar nuclei was studied. The analysis of spike activity was carried out by mean of on-line selection and special program.

#2141 Potential Role of SST5TMD4-Derived Peptides in the Malignancy of Neuroendocrine Tumors and Other Endocrine-Related Cancer Cells
Introduction: Extracellular fragments derived from membrane receptors can play relevant functional roles in certain tumoral pathologies and could provide novel diagnostic or therapeutic tools. We have identified a novel truncated somatostatin receptor type 5 variant, sst5TMD4, which is overexpressed and functionally active in different endocrine-related cancers, including neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Interestingly, sst5TMD4 has 4 transmembrane domains and its C-terminal tail is consequently exposed towards the extracellular matrix, and could, therefore, be the substrate for proteolytic enzymes.

#731 Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Neuroendocrine Tumors, Epidemiology and Clinical Retrospective Study from a Tertiary Care Center in North India
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasm derived from peptide- and amine-producing cells of the neuroendocrine system, characterized by the intracellular presence of markers of endocrine tissue, like chromogranin A, synaptophysin, neuronspecific enolase and having low to medium malignant potential.
