We have identified and characterized a cDNA encoding a novel isoform of the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) receptor, referred to as CRF2alpha-tr, from the rat amygdala cDNA library. The nucleotide sequence of the cloned cDNA has a structure of an alternatively spliced form of the CRF2alpha receptor, which contains unspliced introns 6 and 7 in the(More)
We have recently isolated a cDNA encoding a short isoform of the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) receptor subtype, referred to as CRF(2)alpha-tr, from the rat amygdala. The present study determined the localization of the truncated receptor mRNA in the rat brain by in situ hybridization histochemistry. The results showed significant levels of(More)
A 65-year-old female developed peduncular hallucinosis 3 days after rupture of a basilar-superior cerebellar artery aneurysm. There were no neurological deficits except slight anisocoria when she first complained of hallucinations. Vasospasm of the perforating arteries to the upper brainstem, rather than direct brainstem damage caused by the bleeding, was(More)
CASE REPORT We report a case of central diabetes insipidus, hypothyroidism, and subsequent hypopituitarism due to lymphocytic hypophysitis masking a germinoma in a 13-year-old pubertal girl. Magnetic resonance revealed an enlarged pituitary gland and a mass lesion in the pituitary stalk and inferior hypothalamus. Open cranial surgery of the anterior(More)
We have identified a novel mutation of the arginine vasopressin receptor 2 (AVPR2) gene in a case of congenital X-linked nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI). The patient was a 2-mo-old Japanese boy with persistent fever and failure to thrive. He was diagnosed as having congenital NDI by clinical and laboratory findings. Molecular analysis demonstrated that(More)
A 38-year-old man was admitted to Iwakuni National Hospital on July 6, 1978, with the complaints of difficulty seeing and walking. Two weeks before admission, he first experienced dizziness and it slowly progressed to uncontrollable tremor-like movements of the whole body. On admission, he was alert, oriented and afebrile. He had not experienced nausea,(More)
Male hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (MHH), a disorder associated with infertility, is treated with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and/or gonadotropins replacement therapy (GRT) (TRT and GRT, together with HRT hormone replacement therapy). In Japan, guidelines have been set for treatment during adolescence. Due to the risk of rapid maturation of bone(More)
It is sometimes difficult to confirm the location of a microadenoma in Cushing disease. Recently, we experienced an 11-yr-old female case of Cushing disease with hyperprolactinemia. She was referred to our hospital because of decrease of height velocity with body weight gain. On admission, she had typical symptoms of Cushing syndrome. Although no pituitary(More)
