This study assessed the mechanism(s) by which the autoregulatory vasodilation of rat pial artery in response to acute hypotension during the acute phase of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) was markedly blunted. Increased superoxide production from the cerebral vessels in response to NAD(P)H at 24 hours after SAH + NG-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester (l-NAME) (10(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) activation has been a new approach to cancer therapy. In the present study, we investigated the effects of two structurally different PPARgamma agonists, rosiglitazone and KR-62980 on MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Both agonists inhibited the cell proliferation and colony formation via apoptosis. PTEN(More)
The distribution of conjugative-plasmid-mediated 16S rRNA methylase genes among amikacin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae collected between 1995 and 1998 and between 2001 and 2006 at a university hospital in South Korea was examined, and conjugative plasmids carrying the 16S rRNA methylase genes were characterized by PCR-based replicon typing and by(More)
In this study, flip-chip packaging method was using gold stud bump on chip side and SnAgCu, lead free solder pad on organic substrate. Also capillary underfill enhanced the mechanical properties of gold-solder bump joint. This method was set up to the mass production of the high speed DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) flip-chip package. This kind of gold(More)
This study shows the in vivo neuroprotective effect of cilostazol against cerebral ischemic injury evoked by subjecting rats to 2-h occlusion of middle cerebral artery (MCAO) followed by 24-h reperfusion. We observed the signaling pathway by which cilostazol suppressed MCAO-induced increased phosphorylation of phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted from(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) activation has anti-angiogenic and apoptotic effects in endothelial cells. Here, we investigated the mechanisms of the anti-angiogenic action of a novel PPARγ ligand, KR-62980. KR-62980 inhibited in vitro basal tube formation and in vivo neovascularization in mice induced by Matrigel containing vascular(More)
This study examined the protective effects of cilostazol on cerebral infarcts produced by subjecting rats to 2-h occlusion of the left middle cerebral artery followed by 24-h reperfusion. The ischemic cerebral infarct consistently involved the cortex and striatum. The infarct size was significantly reduced, when rats received 10 mg/kg cilostazol(More)
In the present study, we elucidated effect of cilostazol to prevent the occurrence of vacuolation and rarefaction of the white matter in association with apoptosis induced by bilateral occlusion of common carotid arteries in the male Wistar rats. Rats orally received vehicle (DMSO) or 60 mg kg(-1) day(-1) (orally) cilostazol for 3, 7, 14 or 30 days. In the(More)
In the present study, we assessed that cilostazol stimulates differentiation of 3T3-L1 fibroblasts into adipocytes, and to improve insulin sensitivity in conjunction with PPARgamma transcriptional activity. Upon treatment of COS-7 cells and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) with cilostazol (10 and 30 microM), endogenous PPARgamma(More)
