The fibrous components of the metacarpophalangeal (MP) joint including the palmar plate, the collateral ligament and the dorsal plate were studied with particular attention paid to the fibrous structure of the fibrous tendon sheath and the deep transverse metacarpal ligament. The tough fibrillar structure around the MP joint, especially the force nucleus,(More)
Introduction: In the applications, the boost-voltage converter transforms the low voltage supplied from batteries, fuel cells, or ultracapacitors to a high voltage to drive the motor. Furthermore, the boost-voltage motor driver offers an effective and highly responsive motor drive. These advantages allow boost-voltage motor drivers to be employed in various(More)
Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) synthesizes nitric oxide (NO) from L-arginine (Arg) which has a guanidino group in its molecule. Audouine, a derivative of Arg, is the diguanidino compound. In this study, the effects of audouine on rat brain NOS activity were investigated by measuring nitrite and nitrate formation. Audouine inhibited NOS activity in a(More)
