The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), locus of the central circadian clock, consists of two neuronal populations (i.e., a light-recipient ventral SCN subpopulation directly entrained by light and a dorsal SCN subpopulation with an autonomous oscillatory function possessing an indirect or weak light response). However, the mechanism underlying the transmission(More)
A human melanoma cell line (A375-6) became resistant to the anti-proliferative effect of human IL-1 after a long period of culture. Two stable resistant sub-clones were obtained, and the mechanism of the IL-1 resistance was investigated. Resistant cells, but not sensitive cells, appeared to produce constitutively IL-1 activity. The activity was neutralized(More)
The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) subtype specificity of GW501516, a well-known PPARδ-specific agonist, was studied by examining its effects on the expression of endogenous genes in primary hepatocytes and the liver of wild-type and PPARα-null mice. GW501516, like the PPARα-specific agonist Wy14,643, induced the expression of several(More)
