The causative agent of the disease, PRRS virus (PRRSV), is a member of the family Arteriviridae. Here we report our investigation of the unparalleled large-scale outbreaks of an originally unknown, but so-called "high(More)
Therapeutic application of Asarum, a herbal medicine that has been used for centuries, reportedly causes acute respiratory disturbance. The responsible constituents, the sites of action, and the mechanisms involved in this side effect are unclear. We investigated the effects of β-asarone, a volatile constituent of Asarum, on neurotransmission in the(More)
Substance P (SP) has been implicated in vagal control of heart rate and cardiac functions, but the mechanisms of SP actions on cardiac vagal activity remain obscure. The present study has investigated the effects of SP on the synaptic inputs of preganglionic cardiovagal motoneurons (CVNs) in brainstem slices of neonatal rat. Whole-cell voltage-clamp(More)
The leptotene-zygotene transition is a major step in meiotic progression during which pairing between homologous chromosomes is initiated and double strand breaks occur. OsAM1, a homologue of maize AM1 and Arabidopsis SWI1, encodes a protein with a coiled-coil domain in its central region that is required for the leptotene-zygotene transition during rice(More)
