We investigated the pharmacological properties and neuroprotective actions of a novel alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-y-propionate (AMPA)/kainate receptor antagonist, [6-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-7-nitro-2,3-(1H,4H)-quinoxalinedione hydrochloride (YM90K); formerly YM900], in comparison with those of 2,3-dihydroxy-6-nitro-7-sulfamoyl-benzo(f)quinoxaline(More)
1. We investigated some neurochemical properties of a novel benzamide, YM-43611, [(S)-N-(1-benzyl-3-pyrrolidinyl)-5-chloro-4-cyclopropylcarbonylamino+ ++-2- methoxybenzamide] in comparison with putative D2-like receptor antagonists using both rat and human cloned dopamine D2-like receptors in vitro. 2. Receptor binding studies revealed that YM-43611 had(More)
A novel series of quinoxalinediones possessing imidazolyl and related heteroaromatic substituents was synthesized and evaluated for their activity to inhibit [3H]AMPA binding from rat whole brain. From the structure-activity relationships, it was found that the 1H-imidazol-1-yl moiety could function as a bioisostere for the cyano and nitro groups, and that(More)
The ontogeny of pepsinogen C-producing cells in rat fundic glands was studied by means of light and electron microscopy using an antiserum raised against a synthetic peptide based on rat pepsinogen C. To confirm the immunocytochemistry results, the expression of rat pepsinogen C messenger RNA (mRNA) in the fundic gland was also examined by in situ(More)
As part of our study of novel antagonists at the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionate (AMPA) subtype of excitatory amino acid (EAA) receptors and the pharmacophoric requirements of the receptor, we designed and synthesized a series of 1-substituted 6-imidazolyl-7-nitro-, and 7-imidazolyl-6-nitroquinoxalinediones, as well as related(More)

Database analyses have been carried out to derive physics guidelines for the shortest current quench time and their waveforms as well as the product of halo fraction with toroidal peaking factor arising from disruptions in ITER. Several representative disruption scenarios are specified. Disruption simulations with the DINA code and electromagnetic load (EM)(More)
 Bone marrow embedding in the hydrophilic resin, Lowicryl K4M, followed by cationic colloidal gold (CCG, pH 1.0) staining was used to study the sulfated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and their sites of sulfation ultrastructurally in various maturational stages of both basophil granulocytes and basophil granules in the guinea pig. CCG at pH 1.0 is specific for(More)
Propofol and midazolam have a synergistic anesthetic action. One of the reasons for this is thought to be the inhibitory effect of propofol on midazolam metabolism. However, because both drugs bind strongly to serum protein, their interaction may not only involve the effects of propofol on midazolam metabolism, but may also involve propofol’s effects on(More)
A 28-year-old man complained of tarry stool. A series of examinations showed a submucosal tumor with bleeding at the papilla of Vater and a swollen # 17b lymph node, both of which indicated a hypervascular tumor. The pathological findings of the enucleated tumor specimens revealed gangliocytic paraganglioma with metastasis to the # 17b lymph node.(More)
In this study, we synthesized a series of (S)-N-(3-pyrrolidinyl)benzamide derivatives, 1, 2a-d, 5a-1, and 7, and their enantiomers, (R)-1 and (R)-5c-e, and evaluated their binding affinity for cloned dopamine D2, D3, and D4 receptors and their inhibitory activity against apomorphine-induced climbing behavior in mice. The results indicate that D2, D3, and D4(More)
