We have investigated the effect of in vitro ischemic or hypoxic treatment on mitochondrial electron transport function in brain slices using gas-tissue autoradiography technique with [15O]O2. Brain slices were preincubated in Krebs-Ringer phosphate medium bubbled with 100% O2 for 30 min at 37 degrees C. (1) Control culture was incubated in the same medium(More)
First, we determined the cerebral localization of reduced glutathione (GSH) in normal mice by means of autoradiography using 99mTc-meso-hexamethyl propylene oxime. A highly specific localization of GSH in the cerebellum and hippocampus was observed. Secondly, we measured the elevation of GSH level in the brain after low-dose gamma-irradiation. The cerebral(More)
A facile and sensitive chemiluminescence enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) of estriol 3-sulfate using a bridge-heterologous system was established. 6 alpha-Hydroxyestriol 3-sulfate 6-hemisuccinate was synthesized as a novel hapten. Antisera were raised in male guinea-pigs against 6 alpha-hydroxyestriol 3-sulfate 6-hemisuccinate-bovine serum albumin(More)
Carbon-11 labeled serotonin (5-HT) re-uptake inhibitor, [11C]McN5652X [(6S, 10bR)-trans-(+)-1,2,3,5,6,10b-hexahydro-6-[4-(methylthio)phenyl] pyrrolo-[2,1-a]-isoquinoline], has recently been reported to be favorable for studying human 5-HT re-uptake site by positron emission tomography (PET) because of its rapid and high specific binding characteristics as(More)
The hapten of deoxycorticosterone sulfate was synthesized and linked to the carrier protein through the C-4 position on the steroid nucleus. The antisera raised against this antigen in guinea pigs exhibited high affinity (Ka = 1.86 x 10(9) M-1) and excellent specificity for deoxycorticosterone sulfate. It was found that deoxycorticosterone sulfate can be(More)
The binding of catechol estrogens (2-hydroxyestrone, 4-hydroxyestrone, 2-hydroxyestradiol, and 4-hydroxyestradiol) to estrogen receptors in 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA)-induced rat mammary tumor cytosols was investigated. Cytosol estrogen receptors exhibited high affinities (Ka = 1.12-1.88 X 10(8) M-1) for all catechol estrogens as well as(More)
A highly specific anti-estriol 3-sulfate antiserum was treated with 50% ammonium sulfate, and the crude globulin fraction was coupled to CNBr-activated Sepharose-4B. Addition of 0.1M Tris-HC1 buffer (pH 8.3) containing 0.1M glutamine to the solution of antigen-antibody enabled assaying without solvent-extraction or chromatography to remove endogenous(More)
Antisera were raised in male guinea pigs against 6-oxoestriol 3-sulfate O-carboxymethyloxime-bovine serum albumin (BSA) conjugate. The antisera to this antigen exhibited high affinity (Ka=4.7 X 10(9)M-1) and excellent specificity for estriol 3-sulfate, showing slight cross-reactions (less than 0.43%) with other estrogen sulfates, and no cross-reactivities(More)
