Rapid induction of alpha-amylase by nongrowing mycelia of Aspergillus oryzae.
A rapid induction system for synthesis of alpha-amylase by the funga Aspergillus oryzae M-13 was established. The mycelia were prepared from 20-h cultures grown on a peptone-glycerol medium andExpand

Prenatal Exposure to Diesel Exhaust Impairs Mouse Spermatogenesis
The effect of prenatal exposure to diesel exhaust (DE) was investigated. Twenty pregnant ICR mice were exposed to DE at the particle concentration of 1.0 mg/m3, from d 2 until d 16 postcoitum. MaleExpand

In utero exposure to diesel exhaust increased accessory reproductive gland weight and serum testosterone concentration in male mice.
The effects of in utero exposure to diesel exhaust (DE) on the male mouse reproductive system were examined. Pregnant ICR mice inhaled DE at soot concentrations of 0.3, 1.0, or 3.0 mg DEP/m3 or cleanExpand

Detrimental effects of prenatal exposure to filtered diesel exhaust on mouse spermatogenesis
We recently showed that prenatal exposure to diesel exhaust (DE) disrupts spermatogenesis in mouse offspring. This study was undertaken to determine whether filtered DE in which 99.97% of dieselExpand

Analysis of the phase solubility diagram of a phenacetin/competitor/beta-cyclodextrin ternary system, involving competitive inclusion complexation.
The competitive inclusion complexations in the ternary phenacetin/competitors/beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CyD) systems were investigated by the solubility method, where m-bromobenzoic acid (m-BBA) andExpand

Central effects of taurine: antagonistic effects on central actions of angiotensin.
Renin released from the juxtaglomerular apparatus of the kidney into the circulation produces angiotensin (AT) and this compound increases tubular absorption of sodium and water, resulting in anExpand

Determination of stability constant of beta-cyclodextrin complexes using the membrane permeation technique and the permeation behavior of drug-competing agent-beta-cyclodextrin ternary systems.
The stability constants (Kc) of beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CyD) complexes with phenacetin and various benzoic acids were determined using the membrane permeation technique using a cellophane membraneExpand

A moderate interaction of maltosyl-alpha-cyclodextrin with Caco-2 cells in comparison with the parent cyclodextrin.
The cytotoxicity of maltosyl-alpha-cyclodextrin (G2-alpha-CyD) and maltosyl-beta-cyclodextrin (G2-beta-CyD) toward Caco-2 cells was compared with that of natural alpha-cyclodextrin (alpha-CyD),Expand

Influences of cyclooxygenase inhibitors on the cataleptic behavior induced by haloperidol in mice.
Haloperidol administered intraperitoneally, and prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) and PGE2 intraventricularly induced dose-dependent cataleptic behavior in mice. The cataleptic behavior induced byExpand

Effect of aspirin on haloperidol-induced cataleptic behavior in mice
Haloperidol given intraperitoneally dose-dependently elicited cataleptic behavior, evaluated by high bar and four-cork tests, in mice. The haloperidol-induced cataleptic behavior was reducedExpand
