Human islets exhibit distinct islet architecture with intermingled alpha- and beta-cells particularly in large islets. In this study, we quantitatively examined pathological changes of the pancreas in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Specifically, we tested a hypothesis that changes in endocrine cell mass and composition are islet-size dependent. A(More)
We report the first demonstration of EPR spectroscopy to study free radical reactions in live mice and excised muscle tissue resulting from the metabolism of nitrosobenzene. A broad three-line EPR spectrum (aN = 11.6 G) appeared in the buttocks region of a mouse place in an L-band loop gap resonator after intramuscular or intraperitoneal injection of 0.2(More)
The ultrastructure of the spermatid and spermatozoon of Macracanthorhynchus hirudinaceus (Archiacanthocephala) was studied by means of transmission electron microscopy. The flagellum and nucleus in the spermatid gradually expanded simultaneously. The karyoplasma of the spermatid transformed into dense inclusions and a multibarrel structure, which were also(More)
