We examined the effect of EGF on the proliferation of mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells and their related signal pathways. EGF increased [3H]thymidine and 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine incorporation in a time- and dose-dependent manner. EGF stimulated the phosphorylation of EGF receptor (EGFR). Inhibition of EGFR tyrosine kinase with AG-1478 or herbimycin A,(More)
This study examined the effect of dopamine on DNA synthesis and its related signal cascades in mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells. Dopamine inhibited DNA synthesis in both a dose- and time-dependent manner. Dopamine, SKF 38393 (D1 receptor agonist), and quinpirole (D2 receptor agonist) decreased the level of [(3)H]-thymidine incorporation. The level of cyclic(More)
EGF is a regulator of a wide variety of processes in various cell systems. Hepatocytes are important sites in the body's metabolism and function. Glucose transporter 2 (GLUT2) is a major transporter that is expressed strongly in hepatocytes. Therefore, this study examined the effect of EGF on GLUT2 and its related signal cascades in primary cultured chicken(More)
We have examined the effect of dopamine on Ca(2+) uptake and its related signaling pathways in primary renal proximal tubule cells (PTCs). Dopamine increased Ca(2+) uptake in a concentration (>10(-10) M) and time- (>8 h) dependent manner. Dopamine-induced increase in Ca(2+) uptake was prevented by SCH 23390 (a DA(1) antagonist) rather than spiperone (a(More)
This study examined the suitability of a nuclear imaging technique using (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin as an agent to assess the heart functions of healthy micropigs. The mean age of the pigs was 360 days (male), and the mean body weight was 35.3 kg ranging from 34.5-36 kg. There were no significant perfusion defects in any of the reconstructed images. Gated(More)
