The ventilatory response to hypercapnic progressive hypoxia and the breathing pattern during steady-state hypercapnic hypoxia were compared before and after intravenous infusion of 3 mg of naloxone in a relatively large number of healthy adults (n = 21). In addition, the withdrawal response from hypercapnic hypoxia (modified transient O2 test) was measured(More)
To examine possible genetic influence on the sensation of dyspnea and on load compensation, we conducted a twin study using healthy adult pairs (10 monozygotes, MZ, and 9 dizygotes, DZ). The ventilatory response to progressive hypercapnia (HCVR) was examined under three different conditions: hyperoxia (PETO2 > 150 mm Hg), hypoxia (PETO2 maintained at 50 to(More)
BACKGROUND Gas6 is a growth factor that causes proliferation of mesangial cells in the development of glomerulonephritis. Gas6 can bind to three kinds of receptors; Axl, Dtk, and Mer. However, their expression and functions are not entirely clear in the different glomerular cell types. Meanwhile, representative cell cycle regulatory protein p27 has been(More)
