Aquaporin 1 immunoreactive enteric neurons in the rat ileum
Most neurons in the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system do not express water transporting protein, aquaporin (AQP). In the present study, we have demonstrated the presence of AQP1Expand

Light and electron microscopic studies of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP) – immunoreactive neurons in the enteric nervous system of rat small and large intestine
Abstract Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP)-immunoreactive (IR) neurons in the myenteric and submucosal plexus of the rat small and large intestine were examined by immunostainingExpand

Localization of d-serine and serine racemase in neurons and neuroglias in mouse brain
Abstractd-Serine is a novel candidate for an intrinsic ligand for the glycine site of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in mammalian brain. d-Serine and serine racemase, which produces d-serineExpand

L-Arginine Immunoreactive Enteric Glial Cells in the Enteric Nervous System of Rat Ileum
L-Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) that may be involved in neuronal activity in the gastrointestinal tract. It is known that NO is formed from L-arginine by NO synthase which is localizedExpand

Distribution of peripheral nerve terminals in the small and large intestine of congenital aganglionosis rats (Hirschsprung's disease rats).
The congenital aganglionosis rat is considered to be an animal model of Hirschsprung's disease. The mutants had a long constricted segment (from distal ileum to rectum) below the dilated distalExpand

Inducible nitric oxide synthase‐dependent DNA damage in mouse model of inflammatory bowel disease
Increased cancer risk occurs in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) undergoing long‐term chronic inflammation. To evaluate whether inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS)‐dependent DNA damage plays aExpand

iNOS‐dependent DNA damage in patients with malignant fibrous histiocytoma in relation to prognosis
Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is one of the most common soft tissue sarcomas. MFH has been proposed to be a lesion accompanied with inflammatory responses. During chronic inflammation,Expand

A monoclonal antibody to astrocytes, subepithelial fibroblasts of small intestinal villi and interstitial cells of the myenteric plexus layer
Abstract A monoclonal antibody was developed, using cultured subepithelial fibroblasts of rat duodenal villi as the antigenic material, by in vitro immunization. Hybridomas were selected onExpand
