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)
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)
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)
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)
A 16-year-old male with a long history of steroid-responsive nephrotic syndrome developed fever, abdominal pain, thrombocytopenia and acute renal failure. The clinical course and renal histology were similar to, but not typical of, haemolytic uremic syndrome. Positive cultures (throat, oesophagus, stool), an elevation in serum levels of specific antibody(More)
