In this study, the accuracy of the assumption that genotoxic, carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) act via similar mechanisms of action as benzo(a)pyrene (BaP), the reference PAH used in the human health risk assessment of PAH-containing complex mixtures, was investigated. Adult male Muta™Mouse were gavaged for 28 days with seven individual,(More)
Expression of 2',3'-cyclic nucleotide 3'-phosphodiesterase (CNPase) in amoeboid microglial cells (AMC) in developing rat brain from prenatal day 18 (E18) to postnatal day 10 (P10) was demonstrated by immunohistochemistry/immunofluorescence and immunoelectron microscopy both in vivo and in vitro, respectively. Furthermore, real time-polymerase chain reaction(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of forage: concentrate ratio (F:C) on growth performance, ruminal fermentation and blood metabolites of housing-feeding yaks. Thirty-two Maiwa male yaks (initial body weight = 207.99±3.31 kg) were randomly assigned to four dietary treatments (8 yaks per treatment). Experimental diets were: A, B, C, D(More)
Solving large-scale algebraic Riccati equations (AREs) is one of the central tasks in solving optimal control problems for linear and, using receding-horizon techniques, also nonlinear instationary partial differential equations. Large-scale AREs also occur in several model reduction methods for dynamical systems. Due to sparsity and large dimensions of the(More)
The role of brain-gut peptide galanin in the regulation of prolactin (PRL) and beta-endorphin (beta-EP) release from anterior pituitary lobe was studied in vivo in conscious male rats and in vitro with cultured anterior pituitary cells of the rat. Galanin (1 microgram or 3 micrograms/rat) injected into the third cerebral ventricle of rats produced highly(More)
