To further elucidate the renal effects of NEP inhibition, we employed NEP inhibitor UK 73967 (UK), with or without a kinin receptor antagonist Hoe 140 (Hoe), in Sprague-Dawley normotensive rats and DOCA-salt hypertensive rats. In Sprague-Dawley rats: 1) injected UK significantly decreased NEP, and increased kinins, urine volume (UV) and urinary sodium(More)
To further clarify the significance of renal kininases in patients with Cushing's syndrome, daily urinary excretions of total kininase, kininase I, Ii and neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) were examined and evaluated for the relations between plasma cortisol level and these kininases. Urinary total kininase kininase I, II and NEP were significantly higher(More)
To further elucidate the natriuretic mechanisms of neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) inhibition, we employed a new specific NEP inhibitor, UK 73967 (UK), with or without a specific kinin receptor antagonist, Hoe 140 (Hoe), in Sprague-Dawley rats, and evaluated the renal NEP, kinins and plasma ANP simultaneously. There were no significant changes in urinary(More)
A 28-year-old man complained of tarry stool. A series of examinations showed a submucosal tumor with bleeding at the papilla of Vater and a swollen # 17b lymph node, both of which indicated a hypervascular tumor. The pathological findings of the enucleated tumor specimens revealed gangliocytic paraganglioma with metastasis to the # 17b lymph node.(More)
Recently, rs10906115 in CDC123/CAMK1D, rs1359790 near SPRY2, rs1436955 in C2CD4A/C2CD4B and rs10751301 in ODZ4 were identified as genetic risk variants for type 2 diabetes by a genome-wide association study in a Chinese population. The aim of the present study was to ascertain the role of these four variants in conferring susceptibility to type 2 diabetes(More)
von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndrome is an inherited neoplastic syndrome caused by abnormity of the VHL gene found on the short arm of the chromosome 3. We reported a case of VHL disease diagnosed by the detection of multiple pancreatic endocrine tumors and renal tumor 13 years after bilateral adrenalectomy. A 40-year-old man presented with multiple pancreas(More)
To further investigate the mechanisms of renal effects of neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) inhibition, we employed a specific NEP inhibitor, UK 73967 (UK), with or without a specific kinin receptor antagonist, Hoe 140 (Hoe), or nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibitor, N-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA), in Sprague-Dawley rats, and evaluated the urinary NEP,(More)
To elucidate the significance of renal kininases in primary aldosteronism (PA), urinary total kininase, kininase I, II and neutral endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP) were examined and evaluated for the regulation mechanisms of these kininases. Total kininase, kininase I and NEP were significantly higher in PA than in normotensives (NT), whereas no difference was(More)
