For the purpose of the brain delivery of peptides, the structural specificity of adsorptive-mediated endocytosis at the blood-brain barrier was studied by measuring transport of a newly synthesized basic peptide 001-C8, H-MeTyr-Arg-MeArg-D-Leu-NH(CH2)aNH2, using primary cultured bovine brain capillary endothelial cells. The apparent uptake of [125I]001-C8(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate the activity of a novel peptide, i.e., bifunctional peptide inhibitor (BPI), which targets the immunological synapse and inhibits autoimmune responses in an antigen-specific manner. Proteolipid protein (PLP)-BPI was designed by conjugating two peptides, an encephalitogenic epitope of proteolipid protein(More)
INTRODUCTION The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis is known to be related to abdominal symptoms, and the relationship between abdominal pain and cortisol secretory patterns has been previously investigated using a cross-sectional approach. Here, we investigated the effect of day-to-day variations in salivary cortisol and dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate(More)
