The relationship between human diseases caused by infection with Shiga toxin (Stx)-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157 strains and O157 strains isolated from cattle was investigated in an area where stockbreeding is prolific. For this purpose, the stx genotypes, the molecular epidemiological characteristics of 268 STEC O157 strains including 211(More)
We found that a scaffold protein, spinophilin (SPL), can interact with M2 and M3-muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs). As SPL can also bind to RGS8 by using the different region of SPL, we investigated the effects of SPL on the function of RGS8 regulating signals from M2 and M3 receptors. M2 receptor-mediated Gi-signaling was studied by monitoring(More)
Impact of ursodeoxycholic acid on a CCK1R cholesterol-binding site may contribute to its positive effects in digestive function. Juvenile hormone-activated phospholipase C pathway enhances transcriptional activation by the methoprene-tolerant protein.  Nasse, Jason S. "A novel slice preparation to study medullary oromotor and autonomic circuits in vitro.
Transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) is one of the main sensors for noxious stimuli in animals. Recent studies on the cloning and characterization of TRPA1 channels from several organisms showed the functional diversity of TRPA1 in sensing chemicals and temperature. Nociceptive receptors have been suggested to play important roles in adaptation to(More)
