BACKGROUND The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is presumed to be involved in the pathogenesis of depression. METHODS We determined the gene expression of 32 markers of the pathways of the two main neurotransmitters of the PFC, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and l-glutamic acid (glutamate), by real-time quantitative PCR in human postmortem anterior cingulate(More)
We previously demonstrated in rats that noninvasive delayed limb ischemic preconditioning (LIPC) induced by three cycles of 5-min occlusion and 5-min reperfusion of the left hind limb per day for three days confers the same cardioprotective effect as local ischemic preconditioning of the heart, but the mechanism has not been studied in depth. The aim of(More)
Because of the known anti-arrhythmic effects of taurine-magnesium coordination compound (TMCC), the aim of the present study was to explore the electrophysiological effects of TMCC on hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)-induced arrhythmias in rat ventricular myocytes. Sodium current (I Na), the L-type calcium current (I Ca,L), and the transient outward potassium(More)
