We extended the model of the ventricular myocyte by Winslow et al. (Circ. Res 1999, 84:571-586) by incorporating equations for Ca(2+) and Mg(2+) buffering and transport by ATP and ADP and equations for MgATP regulation of ion transporters (Na(+)-K(+) pump, sarcolemmal and sarcoplasmic Ca(2+) pumps). The results indicate that, under normal conditions, Ca(2+)(More)
Coumarin and its derivatives are naturally occurring substances with multiple biological activities. Here we demonstrate that prophylactic peroral administration of coumarin or 7-hydroxycoumarin (7-OHC) enhances resistance to subsequent lethal Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium infection in mice. 7-OHC decreased bacterial load in liver and spleen, and(More)
It is now apparent that immunologic implantation failure and recurrent abortions are more than likely mediated through activation of natural killer (NK) cells. The NK cell activity is mediated by a balance between activating and inhibitory receptors upon recognition of MHC class I molecules. In this study, we investigated by flow cytometry the expression of(More)
The trophoblast has a significant role in regulation of immune reactions at the materno-fetal interface by producing biologically active substances. In our previous studies five fractions with immunomodulatory activities were isolated by gel chromatography from trophoblast of pig placentas. To confirm the immunomodulatory effect of these trophoblast(More)
