BACKGROUND The early morphogenetic steps of zebrafish interrenal tissue, the teleostean counterpart of the mammalian adrenal gland, are modulated by the peri-interrenal angioblasts and blood vessels. While an organized distribution of intra-adrenal vessels and extracellular matrix is essential for the fetal adrenal cortex remodeling, whether and how an(More)
BACKGROUND Fibronectin (Fn) forms a centripetal gradient during the fetal adrenal gland organogenesis, and modulates hormone responsiveness of adrenocortical cells in the primary culture. However, how Fn is involved in organ formation of the adrenal gland remains unclear. RESULTS In this study, we found that Fn accumulates around migrating ff1b-expressing(More)
Tea (Camellia sinensis L.) contains secondary metabolites including polyphenolic proanthocyanidins (PAs) and their precursors. The SCPL (serine carboxypeptidase-like) proteins are a group of acyltransferase enzymes that modify plant natural products. We isolated CsSCPL, which encodes a SCPL protein, from oolong tea. Sequence alignment analyses showed that(More)
In recent years, neuropathological and epidemiological studies have indicated an association between Alzheimer's disease (AD) and several cardiovascular risk factors. In this study, the cardio-protective effects of folic acid (FA) in early stage AD was elucidated using a triple-transgenic (3xTg) Alzheimer's mouse model. Eleven-month-old C57BL/6 mice and(More)
