The Schizosaccharomyces pombe cps1-12 (for chlorpropham supersensitive) mutant strain was originally isolated as hypersensitive to the spindle poison isopropyl N-3-chlorophenyl carbamate (chlorpropham) (J. Ishiguro and Y. Uhara, Jpn. J. Genet. 67:97-109, 1992). We have found that the cps1-12 mutation also confers (i) hypersensitivity to the(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP) are unique molecules with a specific biological activity for inducing ectopic bone formation when implanted with a suitable carrier matrix. However, incorporation of BMP into the carrier has disadvantages, including early burst release and protein degradation in biological environments. Therefore, we considered that the(More)
When Escherichia coli STII was applied to the serosa of the ileum at a concentration of 40 micrograms/ml, an acceleration of the spontaneous motility and a weak contraction were induced 2-3 min later. The induction was not affected by the addition of atropine (10(-6) M), but was abolished by the addition of papaverine (10(-4) M). When STII was applied to(More)
[6]-Gingerol possesses a variety of beneficial pharmacological and therapeutic properties, including anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-emetic activities. Although [6]-gingerol is known to regulate the contraction of the intestine, its effect on intestinal ion transport is unclear. The aim of this study was to examine the role of [6]-gingerol in(More)
