Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is characterized by the upregulation of proinflammatory proteins, nitrosative stress, and increased enterocyte apoptosis. We examined the expression and regulation of the Bcl-2/adenovirus EIB 19-kDa-interacting protein 3 (BNIP3), a pro-apoptotic gene regulated by nitric oxide (NO) in hepatocytes, in NEC.

This study was performed to investigate a role of the neonatal area postrema (AP) in the chemoreceptor response to hypercapnia which is defective in sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). AP responses to CO2 inhalation were monitored in 1 to 5 week old piglets by mapping neurons that were induced to express the c-fos gene product, Fos--a marker of functional(More)
