INTRODUCTION Aquaporins (AQPs) are membrane proteins that facilitate water movement across biological membranes. This study builds on a previous report on the distinct localization of AQPs in the rat vagina. AIM The purposes of this study were to investigate the localization and expression of the AQPs in the vaginal tissue of premenopausal women. (More)
The molecular mechanisms of preconditioning-induced ischemic tolerance (PCIT) have yet to be elucidated. We investigated whether minimal expression levels of COX-2 induced by preconditioning trigger HO-1, thereby inducing the synthesis of cytoprotective proteins. We show that both COX-2 and HO-1 are induced in rat brains subjected to preconditioning by(More)
A brief ischemic insult induces significant protection against subsequent massive ischemic events. The molecular mechanisms known as preconditioning (PC)-induced ischemic tolerance are not completely understood. We investigated whether kinetic changes of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 during reperfusion time-periods after PC were related to ischemic tolerance. Rats(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the feasibility of a polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffold fabricated by three-dimensional (3D) printing for tissue engineering applications for tunica albuginea. MATERIALS AND METHODS PCL scaffolds were fabricated by use of a 3D printing system. Two scaffolds were fabricated that differed in the architecture of the lay-down pattern: a(More)
