BACKGROUND The differential adaptations of cerebrovasculature and small mesenteric arteries could be one of critical factors in postspaceflight orthostatic intolerance, but the cellular mechanisms remain unknown. We hypothesize that there is a differential regulation of intracellular Ca(2+) determined by the alterations in the functions of plasma membrane(More)
Usher syndrome is a group of autosomal recessive diseases characterized by congenital deafness and retinitis pigmentosa. In a mouse model for Usher syndrome, KMush/ush, discovered in our laboratory, we measured the phenotypes, characterized the architecture and morphology of the retina, and quantified the level of expression of pde6b and ush2a between(More)
The activity of the CDK inhibitor p21 is associated with diverse biological activities, including cell proliferation, senescence, and tumorigenesis. However, the mechanisms governing transcription of p21 need to be extensively studied. In this study, we demonstrate that the high-mobility group box-containing protein 1 (HBP1) transcription factor is a novel(More)
Recent studies report that a conflict between information from the visual system and vestibular system is one of the main reasons for induction of motion sickness (MS). We may be able to clarify the integration mechanism of visual and vestibular information using an animal model with a visual defect, the retinal degeneration fast (rdf) mouse, and the role(More)
In the title Ho(III)-erythritol complex, [Ho(NO3)3(C4H10O4)(C2H5OH)], the Ho(III) cation is chelated by a tridentate erythritol ligand and three bidentate nitrate anions. An ethanol mol-ecule further coordinates the Ho(III) cation, completing the irregular O10 coordination geometry. In the crystal, an extensive O-H⋯O hydrogen-bond network links the(More)
The title Sm(III)-erythritol complex, [Sm(NO3)3(C2H6O)(C4H10O4)], is isotypic with its Nd, Eu, Y, Gd, Tb and Ho analogues. The Sm(III) cation exhibits a coordination number of ten and is chelated by a tridentate erythritol ligand and three bidentate nitrate anions. It is additionally coordinated by an O atom of an ethanol mol-ecule, completing an irregular(More)
In the title Er(III)-erythritol complex, [Er(NO3)3(C2H5OH)(C4H10O4)], the Er(III) cation is chelated by one erythritol mol-ecule, three nitrate anions and an ethanol mol-ecule, completing an irregular ErO10 coordination geometry. The Er-O bond lengths are in the range 2.348 (3)-2.583 (3) Å. In the crystal, extensive O-H⋯O hydrogen bonding links the(More)
In the title complex, {[Nd(C(6)H(4)NO(2))(2)(H(2)O)(4)]Cl}(n), the Nd(III) cation is located on a twofold rotation axis and coordinated by four isonicotiniate anions and four water mol-ecules in a distorted square-anti-prismatic geometry. The carboxyl-ate groups of the isonicotinate anions bridge the Nd(III) cations, forming polymeric chains running along(More)
