Olfactory receptors in aquatic and terrestrial vertebrates
The results support the notion that class I receptors may be specialized for detecting water-soluble odorants and class II receptors for recognizing volatile odorants, and the number and diversity of olfactory receptor genes in different species provides insight into the origin and the evolution of this unique gene family.
Subfamily of Olfactory Receptors Characterized by Unique Structural Features and Expression Patterns
A subfamily of olfactory receptors has been identified that is characterized by distinct structural features as well as a unique expression pattern, and it is conceivable that the novel receptor subfamily may serve a special function in the Olfactory system of mammals.
The calcium-binding protein VILIP in olfactory neurons: regulation of second messenger signaling.
It was found that recombinant VILIP attenuates in a calcium-dependent manner odorant-induced cAMP formation in olfactory cilia preparations, suggesting that VilIP may play a role in adaptation of Olfactory neurons.
Loop diuretics enhance the secretion of prostacyclin in vitro, in healthy persons, and in patients with chronic heart failure
This study is the first demonstration in human tissue of increased secretion of PGI2 both in vitro and in vivo, after torasemide or furosemide administration, which may explain in part the vasodilatory effects of these drugs.
Function of the Hypothalamo-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis and Humoral Immune Mechanisms during Experimental Allergic Encephalomyelitis in SJL/J Mice
The above profile is strongly reminiscent of the HPA axis response to the induction of EAE in Lewis rats, suggesting that the susceptibility of SJL/J mice to EAE may similarly be caused, at least in part, by blunted HPA reactivity to immune challenges.
Improvisation in the Commedia dell'Arte in its Golden Age: Why, What, How
We can appreciate this most particularly by seeing it within the context of Renaissance culture and its rhetorical tradition, a tradition that depended upon imitation and memory. Both imitation and
