The amino acid D-serine (D-Ser), previously recognized as a pharmacological tool for potentiating neuronal activity mediated by the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor complex, in vitro and in vivo, has been observed in several brain regions of the rat and mouse, most prominently in cortex. In addition to reconfirming the presence and distribution of D-Ser(More)
Non-pituitary tumors that produce adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) exhibit resistance to the normal feedback effects of glucocorticoids on proopiomelanocortin (POMC) gene expression. This glucocorticoid resistance is typically complete, although some tumors show only relative glucocorticoid resistance in the clinical setting. The molecular mechanisms(More)
Previous reports have described experimental measurements and theoretical descriptions of sonoluminescence without clearly resolving the physical events that underlie this phenomenon. Although incomplete, these results have led to suggestions that sonoluminescence might be such an extreme process that it could serve as an unusual inertial confinement source(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is common in kidney transplant (KT) recipients. LVH is associated with a worse outcome, though m-TOR therapy may help to revert this complication. We therefore conducted a longitudinal study to assess morphological and functional echocardiographic changes after conversion from CNI to m-TOR inhibitor drugs in(More)
