Pivotal role of Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase in endothelium-dependent hyperpolarization.
The endothelium plays an important role in maintaining vascular homeostasis by synthesizing and releasing several vasodilating factors, including prostacyclin, NO, and endothelium-derivedExpand

Endothelium-Derived Hydrogen Peroxide Accounts for the Enhancing Effect of an Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitor on Endothelium-Derived Hyperpolarizing Factor–Mediated Responses in Mice
Background—We have recently identified that endothelium-derived hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) in animals and humans, for which endothelial nitricExpand

Influence of Diabetes Mellitus, Hypercholesterolemia, and Their Combination on EDHF-Mediated Responses in Mice
The endothelium synthesizes and releases several vasodilator substances, including vasodilator prostaglandins, NO, and EDHF. NO-mediated relaxations are reduced by various risk factors, such asExpand

Important Role of Superoxide Dismutase in EDHF-Mediated Responses of Human Mesenteric Arteries
The endothelium synthesizes and releases several vasodilator substances, including prostacyclin, nitric oxide (NO), and endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF). We have identified hydrogenExpand

Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase-Independent Effects of an ACE Inhibitor on Coronary Flow Response to Bradykinin in Aged Mice
ACE inhibitors are known to ameliorate cardiovascular complications in aging; however, their effects on the coronary circulation in relation to aging and eNOS dependence remain to be examined.Expand

Chiral separation with polyurea membrane consisting of L‐lysinyl residue: Proposal of facile method for prediction of permselectivity
Novel chiral polyureas were prepared from L-lysine-4-nitroanilide and 2,4-toluene diisocyanate. The polyurea thus prepared gave a durable self-standing membrane that can be directly converted intoExpand

LTPS Thin-Film Transistors Fabricated Using New Selective Laser Annealing System
Selective laser annealing system was developed to realize fabrications of low-temperature poly-Si thin-film transistors (TFTs) even for large substrate, while the conventional excimer laser annealingExpand

27.4: Selective Laser‐Annealing System for LTPS‐TFT Panels
A new laser-annealing system for LTPS process was developed which can selectively anneal only the TFT channel area by irradiating amorphous Si with a laser beam using a micro lens located at the TFTExpand

Polyurea Bearing L-Lysinyl Residue as a Chiral Building Block and Its Application to Optical Resolution
Chial polyureas were prepared from L-Lys-OEt and 2,4-TDI. The optimum polyaddition conditions were determined as follows: [L-Lys-OEt] = 2.08 x 10-1 mol dm-3 and [2,4-TDI] = 2.50 x 10-1 mol dm-3Expand
