We have developed a method that can detect the DNA-damaging and cytotoxic effects of physiological levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and activated human neutrophils. This was achieved using WIL2-NS cells, a human B lymphoblastoid cell line, as target cells and the cytokinesis-block micronucleus (CBMN) assay. With this method, we observed a 4- and a(More)
Ground reaction force and wire tensile force were measured during test throws by three hammer throwers: the Asian record holder, who had a personal best of 83.47 m at the time of the investigation, and two university athletes, with personal bests of 59.95 m and 46.30 m respectively. They were filmed using three high-speed video cameras (250Hz). The(More)
Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) was found to bind specifically, reversibly, and in a protein-dependent manner to a single class of high affinity (KD approximately equal to 20 nM) binding sites in membranes prepared from canine renal outer medulla. PGE2 binding activity was solubilized from these membranes in a stable form (t1/2 greater than 14 days) in the absence(More)
We aimed to assess the relationship between throwing distance and kinematic release parameters of the flying disc in unskilled throwers, and to assess the relationship between kinetic variables acting on flying discs and the change in spin velocity during long forehand throws by skilled and unskilled throwers. Ten skilled and eleven unskilled throwers(More)
A rapid reverse-phase HPLC method with evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) was developed for the determination of forskolin in weight loss multi-herbals products. The analysis was performed by water-acetonitrile gradient elution at a temperature of 40 degrees C and a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min. The evaporator tube temperature of ELSD was set at 35(More)
