We investigated the effects of obstructive cholestasis in different hepatic lobes by evaluating asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) (a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor), protein methyltransferase (PRMT) and dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) (enzymes involved, resp., in its synthesis and degradation), the cationic transporter (CAT), and(More)
This study investigated the possible role of nitric oxide (NO) in the development of neocortical spike-and-wave spindling episodes (S&W) of DBA/2J mice. The administration of distilled water did not modify either the number or duration of S&W in DBA/2J mice during the whole recording period (240 min). L-N(G)-nitro arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) (3-300(More)
We investigated the effects of hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury on asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA, a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor), protein methyltransferase (PRMT) and dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) (involved, resp., in ADMA synthesis and degradation), and the cationic transporter (CAT). Male Wistar rats were subjected to 30(More)
