We have characterized the temporal changes in iNOS, MnSOD and nitrotyrosine immune reactivity in a rat model of permanent middle cerebral artery occlusion under acute hyperglycemic or normoglycemic conditions followed by either 3- or 24-h recovery. We found that the macroscopic labeling pattern for all three antibodies colocalized with the ischemic core and(More)
The 2-fluoro derivative of 9-beta-D-arabinofuranosyladenine (2-F-ara-A) and its soluble 5'-formate and 5'-phosphate derivatives were therapeutically effective against the parent leukemia L1210 (L1210/0). 2-F-ara-A and 9-beta-D-arabinofuranosyladenine 5'-formate were inactive aginst a 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine-resistant subline (L1210/ara-C) that was(More)
Free radical induced lipid peroxidation may play a role in neurodegeneration and peroxidation leads to the formation of hexanal from omega-6 fatty acids. We have previously demonstrated in vitro that pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) catalyzes the condensation of saturated aldehydes with pyruvate to form acyloins. We have further shown in perfused rat heart that(More)
BACKGROUND Increases in hydroxyl radical production have been used as evidence of oxidative stress in cerebral ischemia/ reperfusion. Ischemia can also induce increased dopamine release from the striatum that may contribute to hydroxyl radical formation. We have compared hydroxyl radical production in the cortex and striatum as an index of oxidative stress(More)
The lowest doublet electronic state for the lithium trimer (1 2 A) is calculated for use in three-body scattering calculations using the valence electron FCI method with atomic cores represented using an effective core potential. It is shown that an accurate description of core-valence correlation is necessary for accurate calculations of molecular bond(More)
Studies are described examining a new class of 4-aminofolate ana logues modified by an N to C conversion and alkyl substitution at the N-5 position of aminopterin and methotrexate. All of these analogues were equivalent to aminopterin and methotrexate as inhibitors of tumor cell dihydrofolate reducÃ-ase(A, = 3.49-5.16 pM). N to C conversion at the N-5(More)
