GH, GH receptor, GH secretagogue receptor, and ghrelin expression in human T cells, B cells, and neutrophils.
We examined GH and GH receptor expression in human leukemic cell lines and leukocytes of normal subjects to elucidate the cell types expressing GH and GH receptor, the individual variations of theirExpand

Novel microsomal anion-sensitive Mg2+-ATPase activity in rat brain.
Ethacrynic acid (EA) highly sensitive Mg2+-ATPase activity was demonstrated in rat brain microsomes. Marker enzyme studies suggested that the EA highly sensitive Mg2+-ATPase activity originatedExpand

Long‐Term Treatment with Antidepressants Increases Glucocorticoid Receptor Binding and Gene Expression in Cultured Rat Hippocampal Neurones
Since the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and/or mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) in the hippocampus have been implicated in cortisol feedback of the hypothalamus‐pituitary‐adrenal (HPA) axis,Expand

A Cl- pump in rat brain neurons.
Cl(-)-stimulated and ethacrynic acid-sensitive ATPase (Cl(-)-ATPase) of plasma membrane origin in the rat brain is a candidate for an active outwardly directed Cl- translocating system. BiochemistryExpand

Anti-prolactin (PRL) autoantibodies cause asymptomatic hyperprolactinemia: bioassay and clearance studies of PRL-immunoglobulin G complex.
The causes of hyperprolactinemia are varied, but some cases are classified as "idiopathic" because of unknown causes. We examined whether anti-prolactin (PRL) autoantibodies can causeExpand

CI-ATPase and Na+/K(+)-ATPase activities in Alzheimer's disease brains.
The enzyme activities and the protein levels of Cl(-)-ATPase and Na+/K(+)-ATPase were examined in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains. Cl(-)-ATPase and Na+/K(+)-ATPase activities in AD brains (n = 13)Expand

An ATP-driven Cl− pump regulates Cl− concentrations in rat hippocampal neurons
To investigate the role of Cl(-)-stimulated Mg(2+)-ATPase (Cl(-)-ATPase) in neurons, we examined the effects of ethacrynic acid (0.3 mM), which completely inhibits Cl(-)-ATPase on the intracellularExpand

Chloride concentration in cultured hippocampal neurons increases during long-term exposure to ammonia through enhanced expression of an anion exchanger
The effects of long-term exposure to ammonia on [Cl-]i in cultured hippocampal neurons were examined. Ammonia increased the [Cl-]i time- (>/=24 h) and concentration- (>/=2 mM) dependently, resultingExpand

Proteinase-activated receptor 4 stimulation-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition in alveolar epithelial cells
BackgroundProteinase-activated receptors (PARs; PAR1–4) that can be activated by serine proteinases such as thrombin and neutrophil catepsin G are known to contribute to the pathogenesis of variousExpand

The activities of noradrenergic and dopaminergic neuron systems in experimental hydrocephalus.
Experimental hydrocephalus was induced in rabbits by intracisternal injection of kaolin suspension, and the concentration of noradrenaline (NA), dopamine (DA), and their metabolites was determined inExpand
