Intracellular transport and secretion of fibroin in the posterior silk gland cells of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, were investigated in relation to the radial microtubule and circular microtubule-microfilament systems of the cells. The silk glands were pulse-labelled for 3 min with [3H]glycine in vitro and then chased in media containing excess cold glycine(More)
With the objective of finding an avenue for development of magnetic hyperthermia as an effective mesothelioma treatment, the influence of heating by magnetite nanoparticles (MNPs) with a diameter of ~40nm, which were incorporated into cells and then subjected to AC magnetic field, on induction of cell death was investigated in all three histological(More)
The postsynaptic density (PSD) is a protein complex that is critical for synaptic transmission. Ultrastructural changes in the PSD are therefore likely to modify synaptic functions. In this study, we investigated the ultrastructural changes in the PSD in the hippocampal CA1 stratum radiatum following neuronal excitation. Oxygen-glucose deprivation-induced(More)
The involvement of apoptosis was evaluated in lesions of endotoxemic piglets. A single injection with E. coli O111:B4 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced foci of coagulative necrosis in the liver and kidneys. No significant change was observed in these organs at 1.5 hr after LPS injection, but at 6 hr, epithelial cells with chromatin condensation or(More)
