To analyze the effect of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) 118 on fish bone metabolism, we examined osteoclastic and osteoblastic activities, as well as plasma calcium levels, in the scales of PCB (118)-injected goldfish. In addition, effect of PCB (118) on osteoclasts and osteoblasts was investigated in vitro. Immature goldfish, in which the endogenous(More)
AIMS We previously demonstrated that monohydroxylated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (OHPAHs) bound to a human estrogen receptor (ER) by a yeast two-hybrid assay, but polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons did not have a binding activity. Therefore, the direct effect of 3-hydroxybenz[a]anthracene (3-OHBaA) and 4-hydroxybenz[a]anthracene (4-OHBaA) on osteoclasts(More)
The effect of fugu parathyroid hormone 1 (fugu PTH1) on osteoblasts and osteoclasts in teleosts was examined with an assay system using teleost scale and the following markers: alkaline phosphatase (ALP) for osteoblasts and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) for osteoclasts. Synthetic fugu PTH1 (1-34) (100pg/ml-10ng/ml) significantly increased ALP(More)
Ca2+ channels on growth cones of cultured rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons were functionally characterized with an optical method using Fura-2. An increase in intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+](i)) of the growth cone was induced in response to electrical stimulation to the DRG cell body. The ([Ca2+](i))-increase was partly inhibited by either(More)
The influence of sodium fluoride (NaF) on calcium metabolism was examined in goldfish (fresh water teleost). At 2days after administration of NaF (500ng/g body weight; 5μg/g body weight) (around 10(-5) to 10(-4)M in goldfish), we indicated that plasma calcium levels upregulated in both doses of NaF-treated goldfish. To examine the mechanism of hypercalcemia(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to determine the extent to which substance P (SP) increases proinflammatory cytokine production and osteoclast formation of human dental pulp fibroblasts (HDPF) in patients with severe orthodontically induced inflammatory root resorption (OIIRR). METHODS HDPF were obtained from 5 patients with severe apical(More)
The recent introduction of metabolic autopsy in the field of forensic science has made it possible to detect hidden inherited metabolic diseases. Since the next generation sequencing (NGS) has recently become available for use in postmortem examinations, we used NGS to perform metabolic autopsy in 15 sudden unexpected death in infancy cases. Diagnostic(More)
The relationship between oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and later cytological findings in the uterine cervix is unknown in women who were negative for intraepithelial lesion and malignancy (NILM) or atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC-US). This was investigated in this study in a Japanese population to determine the(More)
