Hagfish (Eptatretus burgeri) are agnathous and are the earliest vertebrates still in existence. Pavement cells adjacent to the mitochondria-rich cells show orthogonal arrays of particles (OAPs) in the gill of hagfish, a known ultrastructural morphology of aquaporin (AQP) in mammalian freeze-replica studies, suggesting that an AQP homolog exists in pavement(More)
BACKGROUND An increased number of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II-positive cells (OX-6+ cells) were observed in the glomerulus and periglomerular interstitium during the course of anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) crescentic glomerulonephritis (GN) in WKY rats. This study aimed to demonstrate that periglomerular OX-6+ cells are(More)
BACKGROUND Investigated were effects of overexpression of interleukin-10 (IL-10) on the outcome and progression of crescentic glomerulonephritis in Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats. METHODS Rats were singly or simultaneously injected with antiglomerular basement membrane (a-GBM) antibody and adenoviral vector encoding rat IL-10 (Ad-rIL-10) or LacZ (Ad-LacZ) (3 x(More)
Spinal cord monitoring during surgery using evoked spinal potentials (ESP) is now popular. In cats, ESPs due to both sciatic nerve (SN-ESP) and spinal cord stimulation (SC-AESP and SC-DESP) were recorded from the epidural space. Both SN-ESP and SC-AESP were compared by parameter studies. Stimulus frequencies up to 100 Hz did not significantly alter the(More)
