Massive hepatic cell necrosis can be induced by Corynebacterium parvum and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in rats. In this model, serum LDH, GOT and GPT activities are significantly increased in vivo within several hours after LPS injection. An in vitro experimental acute liver injury animal model was produced by using multicellular spheroids composed of rat(More)
In this study, the microstructure of the cornea was compared among chickens (Gallus gallus), jungle crows (Corvus macrorhynchos), rats (Rattus norvegicus) and rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus). The density of keratocytes in the mammals was over 3 times that in the birds. The size of the keratocytes in the birds and rat were significantly lower than those in(More)
To investigate the morphological changes of accessory olfactory bulb (AOB) neurons arising from pheromonal signals, a coculture system of AOB neurons and vomeronasal (VN) neurons had been established. Our previous study indicates that under coculture condition, the density of dendritic spines of an AOB neuron is less and the individual spine-head volume is(More)
Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of synaptic arrangement on a particular dendrite provides essential information regarding neuronal properties and neural microcircuits. Unconventional synapses are particularly good candidates for such steric attribution. In main and accessory olfactory bulbs (MOBs and AOBs), there are dendrodendritic reciprocal(More)
It was reported that cell-sheets composed of rat liver cells could be obtained by using a collagen-conjugated thermo-responsive polymer, poly-N-isopropyl acrylamide, as a cell substratum and they were then able to transform into multicellular spheroids in the hydrophobic dish. In this study, we succeeded in easily obtaining the cell-sheets with the intended(More)
