In superior cervical ganglion neurons, N-(piperidiny-1-yl)-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-4-methyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxamide (SR141716A) competitively antagonizes the Ca(2+) current effect of the cannabinoid (CB) agonist (R)-(+)-[2,3-dihydro-5-methyl-3-(4-morpholinylmethyl)pyrrolo[1,2,3-de]-1,4-benzoxazin-6-yl]-1-naphthalenylmethanone(More)
To identify structural elements important to specific G alpha(q) coupling in the oxytocin receptor (OTR), intracellular domains were exchanged between OTR and G alpha(s)-coupled vasopressin V(2) receptors (V(2)Rs). Substitution of sequence from the second (2i) and third (3i) intracellular domains of V(2)R into comparable positions in OTR markedly reduced(More)
Epidemiological studies and interventional clinical trials indicate that consumption of long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC n-3 PUFA) such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) lengthen gestational duration. Although the mechanisms are not well understood, prostaglandins (PG) of the 2-series are known to play a role in the initiation and progress of(More)
Previous neuroimaging studies have revealed cognitive dysfunction in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and suggested that it may be related to disrupted brain white matter (WM) connectivity. However, no study has examined the topological properties of brain WM structural networks in SLE patients, especially in patients with(More)
Due to its direct band gap of ~1.35 eV, appropriate energy band-edge positions, and low surface-recombination velocity, p-type InP has attracted considerable attention as a promising photocathode material for solar hydrogen generation. However, challenges remain with p-type InP for achieving high and stable photoelectrochemical (PEC) performances. Here, we(More)
In adverse working conditions, environmental parameters such as metallic dust, noise, and environmental temperature, directly affect the health condition of manufacturing workers. It is therefore important to implement health monitoring and management based on important physiological parameters (e.g., heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature). In(More)
