It is well known that nitric oxide (NO) acts downstream of NMDA receptor activation, which regulates the neural plasticity in the brain. In the present study, the effect of L-NAME, a non-selective nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor, on neural plasticity in the hippocampus was investigated. L-NAME increased the expression of PSA-NCAM and pCREB in the(More)
CD11b+ monocytic/macrophagic cells (Mo/Mph), which infiltrate into skin after UV irradiation, play an important role in UV-induced immunosuppression. Because in mice, blockade of CD11b (iC3b receptor) on monocytes and depletion of its ligand, iC3b, reverses UV-induced immunosuppression, we asked whether iC3b is deposited in human skin after UV, and whether(More)
Scutellariae radix is a Chinese herbal medicine that has been used to treat disease conditions accompanying inflammation and oxidative stress. In the present study, we examined the effect of Scutellariae radix extracts during acute ethanol exposure in N(2)a neuroblastoma. The Scutellariae radix extracts effectively inhibited ethanol-induced apoptosis and(More)
