Glycidol fatty acid esters (GEs) have been found as impurities in refined edible oils including diacylglycerol (DAG) oil, and concerns of possible exposure to glycidol (G), a known animal carcinogen, during digestion have been raised. We previously measured N-(2,3-dihydroxy-propyl)valine (diHOPrVal), a G hemoglobin adduct, for DAG oil exposed and(More)
Glycidol fatty acid esters (GEs) are found in refined edible oils. Safety concerns have been alleged due to the possible release of glycidol (G), an animal carcinogen. We evaluated the genotoxic potential of glycidol linoleate (GL), a primary GE found in an edible oil (diacylglycerol oil), and G, using three established genotoxicity tests (a bacterial(More)
In circular muscles of the canine stomach, diltiazem (greater than 3 X 10(-6)M) depolarized and nicardipine (greater than 10(-6)M) hyperpolarized the membrane. Diltiazem (greater than 5 X 10(-6)M) or nicardipine (greater than 3 X 10(-7M) inhibited the plateau potential of spontaneously generated or electrically evoked action potential. In Na-deficient(More)
The mechanism of surfactant-induced cell lysis has been studied with quantitative coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microspectroscopy. The dynamics of surfactant molecules as well as intracellular biomolecules in living Chinese Hamster Lung (CHL) cells has been examined for a low surfactant concentration (0.01 w%). By using an isotope labeled(More)
Hemoglobin (Hb) adducts are frequently used to address and/or monitor exposure to reactive chemicals. Glycidol (G), a known animal carcinogen, has been reported to form Hb adducts. Here, we measure G adduct levels in humans who daily ingest DAG oil, an edible oil consisting mainly of diacylglycerol. Since DAG oil contains a small amount of glycidol fatty(More)
The immunofluorescence-linked immunospot (ILISPOT) assay associated with the immunofluorescence digital image processing (IDIP) system was originally developed in our laboratory to allow enumeration of immunoglobulin (Ig) producing, spot forming cells (SFC) in a more objective and quantitative manner. In this study, the ILISPOT-IDIP system was further(More)

The purpose of this study is to clarify a cause of disintegration for posterior composite resins by long-term immersion in distilled water during the 3-year period. Three kinds of posterior composite resins [Bellfirm P (BP), Clearfil Posterior (CP) and Micro Jar (MJ)] and one conventional anterior composite resin [Clearfil FII (FII)] were prepared as to(More)
