The differential taste responses of the chorda tympani (CT) and the glossopharyngeal (GL) nerves in preweanling and adult mice were examined by comparing magnitudes of responses to six sugars and 10 amino acids. The results indicate that for sugars the responses of the CT nerve are greater than those of the GL nerve while for umami and essential amino acids(More)

Acquired aplastic anemia (AA) is a potentially fatal bone marrow (BM) failure syndrome. IFN-γ-producing Th1 CD4(+) T cells mediate the immune destruction of hematopoietic cells, and they are central to the pathogenesis. However, the molecular events that control the development of BM-destructive Th1 cells remain largely unknown. Ezh2 is a(More)
Functional roles of the glossopharyngeal (GL) nerve on food and fluid intake were studied by examining effects of the GL denervation on two biologically different activities induced by specific diets using mice and rats. First, we examined whether GL section alters the acceptability of a bitter tasting essential amino acid, L-lysine (Lys), by Lys-deficiency(More)
Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) reflects an exaggerated inflammatory allogeneic T cell response in hosts receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Inhibition of pan-Notch receptor signaling in donor T cells causes reduction of GVHD. However, which Notch ligand(s) in what APCs is important for priming graft-versus-host reaction(More)
