The industrial solvent trichloroethylene (TCE) is a widespread environmental contaminant known to impact the immune system. In the present study, female MRL+/+ mice were treated for 40 weeks with trichloroacetaldehyde hydrate (TCAH), a metabolite of TCE, in the drinking water. The results were compared with the data from an earlier study in which MRL+/+(More)
Exposure to the environmental pollutant trichloroethylene (TCE) has been linked to autoimmune disease development in humans. Chronic (32-week) low-level exposure to TCE has been shown to promote autoimmune hepatitis in association with CD4(+) T cell activation in autoimmune-prone MRL+/+ mice. MRL+/+ mice are usually thought of as a model of systemic lupus(More)
The antinociceptive response of mice to the amino acid L-arginine (L-ARG) has been attributed to either an opioid mechanism or a non-opioid but nitric oxide (NO)-dependent mechanism. Earlier it was reported that the mechanism of nitrous oxide-induced antinociception involved opioid components and was also dependent on brain NO. This study was designed to(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize a murine model of spontaneous amelanotic melanoma arising in the uvea of transgenic mice bearing a targeted deletion of the Ink4a/Arf tumor suppressor locus (exons 2 and 3) and expressing human H-ras controlled by the human tyrosinase promoter. METHODS Ocular lesions developed in 20 (15.7%) of 127 male albino Tyr-RAS+(More)
Chromogranin A is present in the secretory granules of endocrine cells and functions in hormone packaging, secretory granule stabilization, and regulation of hormone secretion. Immunohistochemical identification of chromogranin A can facilitate diagnosis of endocrine neoplasia. Normal and neoplastic canine tissues were stained immunohistochemically for(More)
The second messenger cyclic GMP (cGMP) plays a role in the anxiolytic-like behavioral response of mice to nitrous oxide (N2O). This study was conducted to determine whether this behavioral effect of N2O is affected by inhibition of cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG). N2O-induced behavior in the light/dark exploration test was significantly attenuated by(More)
Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a widespread environmental toxicant known to promote CD4(+) T-lymphocyte activation, IFNgamma production, and autoimmunity in adult MRL(+/+) mice. Because developing tissues may be more sensitive to toxicant exposure, it was hypothesized that continuous TCE exposure beginning at conception might induce even more pronounced CD4(+)(More)
The 2008-09 Argus Commission was charged to examine the question of how colleges and schools of pharmacy are working to create agents of change for pharmacy and society. This charge was derived from the recommendation of the 2007-08 Argus Commission which stated that “the 2008-09 Commission, collaboratively with national student pharmacy leaders, should(More)
The non adult immune system is particularly sensitive to perinatal and early life exposures to environmental toxicants. The common environmental toxicant, trichloroethylene (TCE), was shown to increase CD4+ T cell production of the proinflammatory cytokine IFN-gamma following a period of prenatal and lifetime exposure in autoimmune-prone MRL+/+ mice. In the(More)
