T1 relaxation values of rat liver and spleen tissue have been measured over a 6-month period whilst feeding with p-dimethyl-aminoazobenzene (DAB). Measurements of tissue water and iron content have also been made. A small rise in liver T1 value during the early stages of DAB feeding, from a control value of 296 +/- 12 ms to 318 +/- 12 ms after 3 weeks,(More)
A primary pathogeny of epilepsy is excessive activation of α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate receptors (AMPARs). To find potential molecules to inhibit AMPARs, high-throughput screening was performed in a library of tetrapeptides in silico. Computational results suggest that some tetrapeptides bind stably to the AMPAR. We aligned these(More)
BACKGROUND Meningiomas are the most common primary intracranial tumours, with ∼3% meeting current histopathologic criteria for malignancy. METHODS In this study, we explored the transcriptome of meningiomas using RNA-Seq. RESULTS Inversion-mediated fusions between two adjacent genes, NAB2 and STAT6, were detected in one malignant tumour, creating two(More)
In separate experiments, normal foreign tissue and malignant tumour were implanted s.c. into the rat thigh. NMR T1 values of the adjacent normal muscle, resulting from local inflammatory reactions or from malignant invasion, were measured. Elevations in T1 of the underlying muscle occurred within 24 h in both experiments, and it is believed these were(More)
