Involvement of phosphatidylinositol‐3‐kinase and ERK pathways in the production of TGF‐β1 by macrophages treated with liposomes composed of phosphatidylserine
We explored the involvement of phosphatidylinositol 3‐kinase (PI3K) and ERK pathways in the production of TGF‐β1 by macrophages treated with liposomes composed of phosphatidylserine (PS‐liposomes).Expand

Involvement of ERK, a MAP kinase, in the production of TGF-beta by macrophages treated with liposomes composed of phosphatidylserine.
We have already reported that TGF-beta could be involved in the inhibitory effects of negatively charged liposomes composed of phosphatidylserine (PS-liposome) on the production of nitric oxide (NO)Expand

Phosphatidylserine-specific receptor contributes to TGF-beta production in macrophages through a MAP kinase, ERK.
We explored the involvement of the phosphatidylserine (PS)-receptor in the production of TGF-beta by macrophages treated with PS-liposomes. The binding of anti-PS-receptor antibody to macrophages wasExpand

Influence of meal distribution of wheat bran on fecal bulk, gastrointestinal transit time and colonic thymidine kinase activity in the rat.
Male Fischer 344 rats were fed either fiber-free (FF), continuous 10% wheat bran (CWB) or intermittent 50% wheat bran (IWB) diets for 6 wk to investigate possible alterations in physiological effectsExpand

Ascorbate indirectly stimulates fatty acid utilization in primary cultured guinea pig hepatocytes by enhancing carnitine synthesis.
L-Ascorbic acid is required for the synthesis of L-carnitine, which is essential for the oxidation of long-chain fatty acids. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of ascorbate on theExpand
