We found that the magnesium salt of ilimaquinone, named 201-F, specifically disassembled dynamically unstable microtubules in fibroblasts and various epithelial cell lines. Unlike classical tubulin- interacting drugs such as nocodazole or colchicine which affect all classes of microtubules, 201-F did not depolymerize stable microtubules. In WIF-B-polarized(More)
The ontogenetic development of PepT1, NBAT and EAAC1 along the vertical and horizontal axes of the rat small intestine was evaluated using semiquantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry. The proximodistal profiles of mRNA levels showed that PepT1 was evenly distributed, whereas NBAT had greater expression(More)
Effects of two commonly used tachykinin NK-3 receptor antagonists (SR 142801 and R820) intrathecally (i.t.) administered were assessed in the rat tail-flick test. SR142801 and its (R)-enantiomer SR142806 (1.3, 6.5 and 65 nmol) were found as potent as senktide and [MePhe7]NKB (NK-3 selective agonists) to induce transient antinociceptive effects. Naloxone (10(More)
1. Effects of two tachykinin NK1 receptor selective agonists (septide and [Sar9, Met(O2)11]SP) were compared on the increases in mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR) and motor behaviour following intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) administration in unanaesthetized rat, and on the vascular permeability increases to intradermal (i.d.) injection in the(More)
