A Japanese quail genomic library enriched for (CA/GT)n simple sequence repeats was screened and positive clones were sequenced. Fifty original microsatellite sequences were isolated that consisted mainly of perfect repeats of the dinucleotide (CA/GT)n motif and a corresponding number of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primer pairs complementary to unique(More)
Domestic fowl or chicken (Gallus gallus) and Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) belong to the family Phasianidae. The exchange of marker information between chicken and quail is an important step towards the construction of a high-resolution comparative genetic map in Phasianidae, which includes several poultry species of agricultural importance. We tested(More)

Sulfhemoglobin (SHb) and methemoglobin (MHb) formations by various aniline erivatives were examined by a single and three consecutive intraperitoneal administrations to mice. It was found that with a single administraion, methemoglobinemia was induced by aniline, 2-methylaniline, 3-methylaniline, 4-methylaniline, 3-trifluoromethylaniline (3-TFMA),(More)
Inhibition of parasympathetic neural tone to the iris was produced by electrical stimulation of the afferent sciatic nerve, medullary reticular formation, and posterior hypothalamus in anesthetized cats in which only the parasympathetic nerves to the eye were intact. Stimulation of all 3 sites of activation produced a graded pupillary dilation and reduction(More)
We examined the effect of a carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced hepatic injury on the stereoselective N-demethylation of RS-(+/-)-chlorpheniramine (Chp) by cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C11 isozyme. In the non-treated rat liver microsomes, the stereoselective N-demethylation of racemic Chp was observed. However, in the CCl4-treated (0.5 ml/kg, i.p.) rat liver(More)
The absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of 14C-labeled 4-acetylaminophenylacetic acid (MS-932) were studied in male rats after administration of an oral dose of 10 mg/kg once a day for 21 days. Comparison with the single dosing showed no marked alterations in absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion. There were no significant(More)

It is well known that aniline and hydroxylamine derivatives induce methemoglobinemia in humans as well as various animal species. It was noticed that sulfhemoglobinemia was induced by subchronic administration of N-(4-chlorophenyl)-beta-(4-hydroxymethylphenoxy)ethylurethane (HPU) to rabbits (p.o.), cats (i.p.) and mice (i.p.). Sulfhemoglobin (SHb) and(More)
The effect of 2,4-diamino-6-(2,5-dichlorophenyl)-s-triazine maleate (MN-1695) on gastric mucosal blood flow ( GMBF ) and on the changes of GMBF induced by catecholamines, tetragastrin, histamine and indomethacin were investigated in anesthetized dogs. MN-1695 at doses up to 1 mumol/kg i.v. showed only a slight but prolonged increase of GMBF . MN-1695 tended(More)
The effect of 2,4-diamino-6-(2,5-dichlorophenyl)-s-triazine maleate (MN-1695) on various experimental gastric ulcers and gastric secretion in experimental animals was compared with that of cimetidine and cetraxate. MN-1695 significantly inhibited the formation of Shay, stress-induced, indomethacin-induced, and histamine-induced ulcers and significantly(More)
The rodents exposed to repeated cold stress according to a specific schedule, known as specific alternation of rhythm in temperature (SART), exhibit autonomic imbalance, and is now used as an experimental model of fibromyalgia. To explore the susceptibility of SART-stressed animals to novel acute stress, we tested whether exposure of mice to SART stress for(More)
