Single-pulse unilateral electrical stimulation of either the amygdala or the inferior colliculus elicited startle-like responses in chloral hydrate anesthetized rats. EMG responses to intracranial stimulation were recorded from the anterior biceps femoris muscles. The EMG responses were generally enhanced following unilateral tetanic stimulation of the deep(More)
After maternal intake, nicotine crosses the placental barrier and causes severe embryonic disorders and fetal death. In this study, we investigated whether β -carotene has a beneficial effect against nicotine-induced teratogenesis in mouse embryos (embryonic day 8.5) cultured for 48 h in a whole embryo culture system. Embryos exposed to nicotine (1 mM)(More)
Glucohexaose is a safe farm chemical used for pathogen prevention, which can induce systemic acquired resistance in cucumber. We found that glucohexaose treatment of cucumber plant induced an accumulation of the reactive oxidative species (ROS). Histochemistry showed sharp increases in O2- and H2O2 5 h after glucohexaose treatment. After 5 h, the O2-(More)
