OBJECTIVE Previous studies suggest a role of superoxide anion radicals (.O2-) in impaired endothelium-dependent relaxation of diabetic blood vessels; however, the role of secondary reactive oxygen species remains unclear. In the present study, we investigated a role of various potential reactive oxygen species in diabetic endothelial dysfunction. METHODS(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) donors such as sodium nitroprusside (SNP, 0.01-1 micrograms) or 3-morpholino-sydnonimine (SIN-1, 0.1-10 micrograms) administered intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v) produced a dose-dependent potentiation of beta-endorphin-induced antinociception assessed by the tail-flick test in ICR mice. The same i.c.v. treatment with SNP or SIN-1 did not(More)
Cellular proliferation determines the events leading to the initiation and development of inflammation, immune activation, cancer, atherogenesis, and other disorders associated with aberrant cell proliferation. Cyclin inhibitor p21 plays a unique role in limiting cell cycle progression. However, its effectiveness can only be demonstrated with direct in(More)
