It is well known that head-twitch response (HTR) in mice represents hallucinations, since administration of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) produces hallucinations in humans, and the HTR in mice is induced by administration of LSD as a hallucinogen. The HTR is produced by excitation of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)2A receptors. In this paper, we review the(More)
Semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO, EC is a group of enzymes highly sensitive to inhibition by semicarbazide. This high sensitivity distinguishes these enzymes from monoamine oxidase (MAO). Various mammalian tissues contain membrane-bound SSAO which metabolizes only the primary monoamines. Vascular and non-vascular smooth muscle cells have(More)
Inotropic responsiveness to beta-adrenergic stimulation is generally found to be impaired in left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and failure. To investigate the mechanisms by which angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor therapy may modulate inotropic responsiveness with long-term pressure overload, we studied the effects of captopril treatment on cardiac(More)
This study investigated gene expression of drug resistance factors in biopsy tissue samples from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients undergoing chemotherapy by platinum complex. Liver biopsy was performed to collect tissue from the tumor site (T) and the non-tumor site (NT) prior to the start of treatment. For drug-resistant factors, drug excretion(More)
