Lipids in Harderian Glands and Their Significance
The Harderian gland, discovered by Harder (1694), is well developed in rodents (rat, mouse, golden hamster, Mongolian gerbil, guinea pig, etc.), lagomorphs (rabbit, pika) and cetaceans, and may haveExpand
Involvement of apoptosis‐inducing factor during dolichyl monophosphate‐induced apoptosis in U937 cells
Dolichyl monophosphate (Dol‐P) has been found to induce apoptosis in human leukemia U937 cells. During this apoptotic execution, the increase of plasma membrane fluidity (5–20 min), caspase‐3‐likeExpand
Induction of apoptosis in human hematopoietic U937 cells by granulocyte–macrophage colony-stimulating factor: possible existence of caspase 3-like pathway
Granulocyte–macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) induced apoptosis in human hematopoietic U937 cells by itself and in a synergistic manner with tumor necrosis factor (TNF). GM-CSF-inducedExpand
Lipid droplet formation in human myeloid NB4 cells stimulated by all trans retinoic acid and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor: possible involvement of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor
All trans retinoic acid (ATRA), a differentiation inducer for human myeloid NB4 cells, induced accumulation of lipid droplet as determined by positivity of Nile Red and Oil Red O in this cell line.Expand
Serum fatty acids, lipoprotein (a) and apolipoprotein profiles of middle-aged men and women in South Vietnam.
In Vietnam, increasing fat consumption is a trend recognized recently in urban areas. To obtain a reasonable nutrition status and prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD), it is necessary to obtainExpand
Branched long chain bases in cerebrosides of the guinea pig Harderian gland.
Cerebrosides obtained from the guinea pig Harderian gland were analyzed. The purified cerebrosides gave a single spot on thin-layer chromatography, the Rf value being similar to that of phrenosineExpand
Fatty acid composition of cardiolipin from guinea pig Harderian gland.
The fatty acid composition of cardiolipin from the Harderian gland of guinea pig was examined by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. At least 33 kinds of fatty acids wereExpand

Insulin/IGF-I-dependent signals play important roles for the regulation of proliferation, differentiation, metabolism, and autophagy in various cells, including hematopoietic cells. Although theExpand
Effects of dietary cholesterol on the fatty acid composition of glomerular phospholipids in the rat
Summary: Hypercholesterolaemia is considered to be an exacerbating factor in glomerular diseases. This study was designed to assess the effects of dietary cholesterol on the fatty acid composition ofExpand
