Apocynin inhibits peroxynitrite formation by murine macrophages
Peroxynitrite (ONOO−) the highly reactive coupling product of nitric oxide and superoxide, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of an increasing number of (inflammatory) diseases. At present,Expand

Apocynin and 1400 W prevents airway hyperresponsiveness during allergic reactions in mice
The contribution of reactive nitrogen species to the development of airway hyperresponsiveness in a mouse model of allergic inflammation was investigated by the use of selective inhibitors of nitricExpand

Delayed‐type hypersensitivity‐induced increase in vascular permeability in the mouse small intestine: inhibition by depletion of sensory neuropeptides and NK1 receptor blockade
1 This study investigates the effects of capsaicin‐induced depletion of sensory neuropeptides and of neurokinin! (NK1) receptor blockade on delayed‐type hypersensitivity (DTH)‐induced changes ofExpand

Critical Role for Mast Cells in the Pathogenesis of 2,4-Dinitrobenzene-Induced Murine Colonic Hypersensitivity Reaction
The immunological mechanisms underlying the role of mast cells in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are poorly defined. In this study, non-IgE mediated colonic hypersensitivityExpand

Comparison of Two Immortalized Human Cell Lines to Study Nuclear Receptor-Mediated CYP3A4 Induction
Since CYP3A4 is responsible for the biotransformation of over 50% of all clinically used drugs, induction results in an increased clearance of many concomitantly administered drugs, therebyExpand

Kinetic properties of the rat intestinal microsomal 1-naphthol:UDP-glucuronosyl transferase. Inhibition by UDP and UDP-N-acetylglucosamine.
The kinetic properties of the rat intestinal microsomal 1-naphthol:UDPglucuronosyltransferase (EC were investigated in fully activated microsomes prepared from isolated mucosal cells. TheExpand

Glucuronidation in the rat intestinal wall. Comparison of isolated mucosal cells, latent microsomes and activated microsomes.
Glucuronidation and sulphation of 1-naphthol and 7-hydroxycoumarin was studied in isolated rat intestinal epithelial cells and in microsomes prepared from these cells. In the isolated cells formationExpand

Glucuronidation in isolated perfused rat intestinal segments after mucosal and serosal administration of 1-naphthol.
Glucuronidation of 1-naphthol in the rat intestinal wall was studied in isolated perfused intestinal segments. 1-Naphthol glucuronide appeared on the mucosal as well as on the serosal side of theExpand

Immunochemical and functional characterization of UDP-glucuronosyltransferases from rat liver, intestine and kidney.
Glucuronidation of various substrates in hepatic, intestinal and renal microsomes of control, phenobarbital (PB), 3-methylcholanthrene (3MC) and Aroclor-1254 (A1254) pretreated rats was investigated.Expand

Distribution of glucuronidation capacity (1-naphthol and morphine) along the rat intestine.
The distribution of glucuronidation capacity along the rat intestine was investigated using mucosal cells, isolated from the small intestine, the caecum, and the colon plus rectum. TheExpand
