Genomic analysis of Bacteroides fragilis reveals extensive DNA inversions regulating cell surface adaptation.
Bacteroides are predominant human colonic commensals, but the principal pathogenic species, Bacteroides fragilis (BF), lives closely associated with the mucosal surface, whereas a second majorExpand

Slowing of peripheral motor nerve conduction was ameliorated by aminoguanidine in streptozocin-induced diabetic rats.
The aims of this study were to investigate the effect of aminoguanidine (AG) on slowing of motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) of the sciatic nerve in streptozocin-induced diabetic rats and toExpand

Role of bile in intestinal barrier function and its inhibitory effect on bacterial translocation in obstructive jaundice in rats.
BACKGROUND Our previous study using genetically labeled Escherichia coli strain JNW14 revealed that obstructive jaundice promotes bacterial translocation in rats and that the absence of bile in theExpand

The Effects of 30% and 60% Xenon Inhalation on Pial Vessel Diameter and Intracranial Pressure in Rabbits
Xenon may increase cerebral blood flow and intracranial pressure (ICP). To evaluate the effects of xenon on brain circulation, we measured pial vessel diameter changes, CO2 reactivity, and ICP duringExpand
