A. Oxidative stress and covalent modification of protein with bioaktive aldehydes / P. Formation mechanism of p-methylacetophenone from citral via a tert-alkoxy radical intermediate / T. In the 2-months' experiment, white mature rats were intoxicated with dichloroethane at a total dose of 0.1 LD50. It was found that in bone tissue the state of(More)
We examined the properties of voltage-gated calcium channels mediating endogenous dopamine (DA) and acetylcholine (ACh) release in the isolated rat retina. Application of 30 mM KCl elicited the release of DA and ACh, and these releases were abolished in Ca(2+)-free medium. The high K(+)-evoked DA release was largely blocked by both of omega-agatoxin IVA and(More)
BACKGROUND Retinitis pigmentosa is a hereditary disease characterized by gradually developing degeneration of photoreceptors. The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) rat is an experimental model of retinitis pigmentosa. However, there is a paucity of information concerning neurotransmitter contents in the retina of RCS rats. Thus, we determined the retinal(More)
PURPOSE To investigate antigen (Ag) specificity, activation, and effector function of the Ag-specific T cells involved in the development of experimental immune-mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC), an experimental conjunctivitis. METHODS EC was induced in Brown Norway rats by injection of ovalbumin (OVA)-specific T cells followed by OVA challenge with(More)
During cardiac myogenesis, ventricular muscle cells lose the capacity to proliferate soon after birth. It is unknown whether this developmental block to mitotic division and DNA replication might involve irreversible repression of the cellular oncogene c-myc. Ventricular myocytes from 2 d-old rats continued to differentiate in vitro during 15 d of mitogen(More)
Macrophages infiltrate the conjunctiva in severe cases of allergic conjunctivitis (AC) such as atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC). We established experimental immune-mediated blepharoconjunctivitis (EC) in Brown Norway (BN) rats as a model for severe types of AC. We investigated whether macrophage infiltration in the conjunctiva in this EC model is inhibited(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have revealed that administration of nitric oxide (NO) donors increases the release of neurotransmitters in various brain regions. In the retina, NO synthetase (NOS) is found in retinal amacrine and ganglion cells, and it is evident that NO is involved in encoding visual information. In the present study, therefore, NO donors were(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the roles of interaction between OX40 and OX40 ligand (OX40L) in the development of experimental allergic conjunctivitis (EC) in mice. METHODS BALB/c mice actively immunized with short ragweed pollen (RW) were intraperitoneally injected on days 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 with agonistic anti-OX40 Ab, blocking anti-OX40L Ab, or normal rat(More)
Using an adenoviral vector, we induced overexpression of the plasma type of platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase in cultured rat neurons. Neurons overexpressing this enzyme showed a decrease in glutamate-induced injury, mainly, apparent as decreased apoptosis. Reduction of lipid peroxidation by this enzyme and protection of mitochondrial function were(More)
