Glucocorticoids are known to decrease intracellular ATP levels in the brain. This study was performed to investigate whether corticosterone at physiological levels depresses mitochondrial ATP production by directly acting on mitochondria. Mitochondria were isolated from immortalized hypothalamic GT1-7 neurons. ATP levels were determined using a(More)

To examine the efficacy of CH5036249, a novel nonsecosteroidal VDR agonist, we orally administered the compound at 0.03 microg/kg to a beagle model with spontaneous BPH. Prostate volume was(More)
