The first chordates appear in the fossil record at the time of the Cambrian explosion, nearly 550 million years ago. The modern ascidian tadpole represents a plausible approximation to these ancestral chordates. To illuminate the origins of chordate and vertebrates, we generated a draft of the protein-coding portion of the genome of the most studied(More)
The pharmacological properties of AD-5423 [2-(4-ethyl-1-piper-azinyl)-4- (4-fluorophenyl)-5,6,7,8,9,10-hexahydrocycloocta[b]pyridine] were studied in biochemical and behavioral tests. In vitro, AD-5423 bound preferentially to dopamine (DA)-D2 (Ki, 14.8 nM; cf. haloperidol, 8.79 nM; and clozapine, 149 nM) and serotonin (5-HT)-S2 (Ki, 3.98 nM; cf.(More)

Transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) proteins form Ca(2+)-permeable cation channels activated upon stimulation of metabotropic receptors coupled to phospholipase C. Among the TRPC subfamily, TRPC3 and TRPC6 channels activated directly by diacylglycerol (DAG) play important roles in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) signaling, promoting(More)
The effect of potassium ion and membrane potential on the uptake of L-glutamate in microvilli (brush border) vesicles prepared from human term placenta was studied using a rapid filtration technique. The uptake of L-glutamate into microvilli vesicles is Na+ electrochemical gradient dependent and pre-equilibration of the vesicles with K+ stimulates(More)
For the past one year, 13 patients were studied 20 times with cineradiography to diagnose abnormal spine motion, which was quite informative compared to usual plain spine X-ray pictures. The direct radiation dosis was only 2.35 rem/min on taking cineradiography at the speed of 60 frames/sec. The camera used was Cardoskop-U and the X-ray generator was(More)
