Periodic growth incremental lines are found universally in dental hard tissues. This periodicity theoretically allows for estimation of age, even in days, which would be useful in studies of wild animals. In the present study, enamel and dentin increments of the sika deer (Cervus nippon) were observed in ground sections with a polarized light microscope,(More)
Cation chloride cotransporters, K(+)-Cl(-) cotransporter 2 (KCC2) and Na(+)-K(+)-Cl(-) cotransporter 1 (NKCC1) are reported to be expressed in the neurons in the spinal cord and regulate intracellular Cl(-) concentration. Evidence has been accumulating that the expression of cation chloride cotransporters changes in inflammatory or neuropathic pain, and(More)
BACKGROUND Age-based formula has been widely used to predict the appropriate size of the endotracheal tube in children. Tracheal internal diameter in X-ray photograph is reported to show higher correlation with a correct tube than age. In our institution, X-ray photographs were stored as digital images, enabling us to measure tracheal internal diameters(More)
