Intravenous lipopolysaccharide (LPS) leads to acute lung injury (ALI) in rats. The purpose of this study was to examine the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant efficacy of ketamine, propofol, and ketofol in a rat model of ALI. We induced ALI in rats via intravenous injection of LPS (15 mg kg(-1)). The animals were randomly separated into five groups: control,(More)
Shootin1 is a protein involved in neuronal polarization, and has been shown to be a key molecule for the positive/negative feedback loop for axon induction required during neuronal symmetry breaking. To better understand the molecular basis of shootin1 dynamics, we analysed the regulatory pathways and the expressional status of shootin1 gene during(More)
A photoaffinity labeling technique was used to study the receptors involved in the discrimination of odorants. Aromatic azides, 1-azidonaphthalene (AzN) and 1-azido-4-nitronaphthalene (AsNN), were found to be pleasant-smelling compounds and produced good responses, giving standard EOG's (electro-olfactogram) of the kind observed for normal odorants.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to reveal the effects of 4,5-dianilinophthalimide (DAPH), which inhibits amyloid β fibrillization, against serum deprivation (SD)-induced apoptosis and the possible mechanisms in differentiated PC12 neuron cells. METHODS Firstly, we evaluated whether DAPH protects cell viability exposed to SD by MTT assay. Next, we(More)
