The glutamate receptor delta2 subunit (GluRdelta2) is selectively expressed in cerebellar Purkinje neurons (PNs) and is involved in the long-term depression (LTD). However, little is known about the mechanism of its action. Acute expression of the wild-type GluRdelta2 in the GluRdelta2-deficient PN rescued the induction of LTD, suggesting the direct role of(More)
A PDE4B subtype selective inhibitor is expected to have a wider therapeutic window than non-selective PDE4 inhibitors. In this Letter, two series of 7,8-dihydro-6H-thiopyrano[3,2-d]pyrimidine derivatives and 5,5-dioxo-7,8-dihydro-6H-thiopyrano[3,2-d]pyrimidine derivatives were evaluated for their PDE4B subtype selectivity using human PDE4B2 and PDE4D2 full(More)
Fibrosis is the final common pathway for various tissue lesions that lead to chronic progressive organ failure, and consequently effective antifibrotic drugs are strongly desired. However, there are few animal models in which it is possible to evaluate fibrosis sensitively in a short period of time. We therefore generated two transgenic rats harboring a(More)
Neurokinins are known to induce neurogenic inflammation related to respiratory diseases. The effects of CS-003 ([1-{2-[(2R)-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-4-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoyl)morpholin-2-yl]ethyl}spiro[benzo[c]thiophene-1(3H),4'-piperidine]-(2S)-oxide hydrochloride]), a novel triple neurokinin receptor antagonist, on several respiratory disease models were(More)
Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitors have been developed for the treatment of pulmonary inflammatory diseases, but their clinical use was dose-limited by mainly gastric adverse effects. Recent studies suggested PDE4B-selective inhibitors over PDE4D are supposed to display a wider therapeutic index than subtype non-selective PDE4 inhibitors such as(More)
Neurokinins are known to induce neurogenic inflammation related to respiratory diseases, though there is little information on triple neurokinin receptor antagonists. The pharmacological properties of the novel triple neurokinin 1, 2 and 3 receptor antagonist(More)
