Oseltamivir, an anti-influenza virus drug, induces marked hypothermia in normal mice. We have proposed that the hypothermic effect arises from inhibition of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor function of sympathetic ganglion neurons which innervate the brown adipose tissue (a heat generator). It has been reported that local anesthetics inhibit nicotinic(More)
Acetaminophen (AcAP), a widely-used antipyretic and analgesic drug, has been considered to exert its effects via central mechanisms, and many studies have demonstrated that the analgesic action of AcAP involves activation of the serotonergic system. Although the serotonergic system also plays an important role in thermoregulation, the contribution of(More)
A pentacoordinated hydrosilane activated by an intramolecular nitrogen-silicon dative bond was utilized as an end-capping agent for catalyst-free syntheses of [2]rotaxanes. The end-capping reaction of a pseudo[2]rotaxane bearing a salicylic acid terminus with the pentacoordinated hydrosilane readily proceeded at room temperature to produce the corresponding(More)
