The metabolism of fluoresceinyl isothiocyanate labeled aloemannan (FITC-AM) was examined by p.o. and i.v. administration in mice at a dose of 120 mg/kg. Analysis of FITC-AM in urine and feces showed that FITC-AM (MW 500 KD) was metabolized into smaller molecules that mainly accumulated in the kidneys. AM was catabolized by the human intestinal microflora to(More)
Fluorescein-labeled arabinogalactan (FA) was prepared by the reaction with FITC in methyl sulphoxide according to the method of deBelder and Granath. A systemic kinetic analysis of FA in rats was carried out by using a specific high-performance size-exclusion chromatography. Intravenously administered FA was rapidly eliminated from the blood circulation(More)
Olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) in the olfactory epithelium (OE) and olfactory projection areas in the brain of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) were investigated by a newly developed odor-stimulated labeling methods using agmatine (AGB). The olfactory receptor cells (ORCs) in OE were immunocytochemically labeled by stimulation with AGB or AGB plus(More)
Interrelated effects of γ-linolenic acid (GLA) and sesamin, a sesame lignan, on hepatic fatty acid synthesis and oxidation were examined. Rats were fed experimental diets supplemented with 0 or 2 g/kg sesamin (1:1 mixture of sesamin and episesamin) and containing 100 g/kg of palm oil (saturated fat), safflower oil rich in linoleic acid, or oil of evening(More)
