Paraoxonase1 polymorphism Leu-Met55 is associated with cerebral infarction in Japanese population.
BACKGROUND Paraoxonase1 (PON1) is HDL-associated ester hydrolase which has been shown to prevent LDL and HDL oxidation in vitro. PON1-coding region has two common polymorphisms (M/L55 and A/B192)Expand

Ventrolateral Medulla AT1 Receptors Support Arterial Pressure in Dahl Salt-Sensitive Rats
Abstract—The present study addresses the hypothesis that angiotensin type 1 receptors (AT1Rs) in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) contribute to the elevation of mean arterial pressure (MAP)Expand

Elevated Interleukin-18 Levels in the Urine of Nephrotic Patients
Background/Aim: The etiology of minimal-change nephritic syndrome (MCNS) is obscure. It has been speculated that T cells play a role in the pathogenesis of MCNS. Interleukin (IL)-18, a novelExpand
