The possible involvement of glutamatergic mechanisms in the control of food intake was studied in free-feeding and in 24-h food-deprived (FD24) pigeons for 1 h after intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) treatment with glutamate (Glu, 0, 50, 150, 300, and 600 nmol). Glu injections dose dependently induced decreases (30-65%) in food intake (FI) and feeding(More)
Rats were subjected to unpredictable chronic stress (UCS), which was composed of 3 cycles of 7 kinds of stress for 21 days. Rats given UCS exhibited a depressive state in behavioral tests such as emergence tests and forced swim tests. Administration of cyclosporine-A (CsA), an immunosuppressive drug, gave rise to antidepressant effect in rats under the UCS,(More)
Advancing of age apparently influences the behavior of colorectal cancer (CRC). The pattern of activation and expression of Wnt target genes may influence the behavior of the cancer. In the present study, the level of activation of some elements of Wnt signaling was evaluated and correlated with the patient's age and clinicopathological characteristics of(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of IMP3, an independent poor prognostic factor for many cancers, and its association with clinicopathological features and HER2 status. Gastrectomy specimens from 106 patients were evaluated by immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization. HER2 overexpression was found in 4.71 % of the(More)
