Endogenous d‐Serine in Rat Brain: N‐Methyl‐d‐Aspartate Receptor‐Related Distribution and Aging
Abstract: Recently, a substantial amount of free d‐serine has been demonstrated in rat brain, although it has long been presumed that d‐amino acids are uncommon in mammals. The anatomicalExpand

Determination of free amino acid enantiomers in rat brain and serum by high-performance liquid chromatography after derivatization with N-tert.-butyloxycarbonyl-L-cysteine and o-phthaldialdehyde.
The concurrent determination of free amino acid enantiomers and non-chiral amino acids in rat brain and serum was accomplished by high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorimetric detectionExpand

The presence of free D‐serine in rat brain
Free amino acid enantiomers in adult rat brain extracts were analysed as their N,O‐pentafluoropropionyl isopropyl derivatives by gas chromatography on a capillary column of Chirasil‐L‐Val. A peak X,Expand

Ethylene is required for both the initiation and progression of softening in pear (Pyrus communis L.) fruit.
In order to investigate the physiological role of ethylene in the initiation and subsequent progression of softening, pear fruit were treated with propylene, an analogue of ethylene orExpand

Transcriptomic analysis indicates putative metabolic changes caused by manipulation of phosphorus availability in rice leaves.
Plants have developed several strategies for coping with phosphorus (P) deficiency. However, the details of the regulation of gene expression of adaptations to low P are still unclear. Using a cDNAExpand

Transcriptional profiling of genes responsive to abscisic acid and gibberellin in rice: phenotyping and comparative analysis between rice and Arabidopsis.
We collected and completely sequenced 32,127 full-length complementary DNA clones from Oryza sativa L. ssp. japonica cv. "Nipponbare." Mapping of these clones to genomic DNA revealed approximatelyExpand

Growth of Prunus tree stems under simulated microgravity conditions.
Stem growth of Prunus trees under simulated microgravity conditions was examined using a three-dimensional clinostat. The stems elongated with bending under such conditions. Stem elongation and leafExpand

Growth of pea epicotyl in low magnetic field: implication for space research.
A magnetic field is an inescapable environmental factor for plants on the earth. However, its impact on plant growth is not well understood. In order to survey how magnetic fields affect plant,Expand
