To observe the effect of intracarotid administration of adenosine on neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) region, 72 spontaneous active units were extracellularly recorded from 28 Sprague-Dawley rats with sino-aortic denervation. The results obtained are as follows: (1) intracarotid administration of Ado (25 micrograms/kg) reduced the(More)
To observe the effect of intracarotid administration of endothelin (ET-1) on electrical activity of neurons within rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) region, 87 spontaneous active units were extracellularly recorded in 35 Sprague-Dawley rats with sino-aortic denervation. The results obtained are as follows. (1) Intracarotid administration of ET-1 (0.3(More)
Effects of adenosine (Ado) on spontaneous and glutamate induced discharges of neurons in CA1 area of hippocampal slices were examined using extracelluar recording technique. The results are as follows. (1) In response to the application of Ado (0.01 0.1 micromol/L, n=20) into the superfusate, spontaneous discharge rates (SDR) of 20 neurons decreased(More)
MALDI imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI-IMS) has been used successfully in mapping different lipids in tissue sections, yet existing protocols fail to detect the diverse species of mitochondria-unique cardiolipins (CLs) in the brain which are essential for cellular and mitochondrial physiology. We have developed methods enabling the imaging of individual CLs(More)
The present study was undertaken to define whether intracarotid injection of capsaicin induces Fos expression associated with the activation of NOS-containing neurons in brainstem nuclei by combining the immunocytochemical method for Fos with NADPH-d histochemical technique for NOS. The results obtained are as follows: (1) Intracarotid injection of(More)
Effects of intracarotid injected capsaicin on the expression of Fos proto-oncogene in the brainstem nuclei involved in cardiovascular regulation were examined in 16 anesthetized rats with sinoaortic denervation. Only a few Fos-like protein immunoreactivity (FLI) neurons were found in the vehicle-control rats. Following intracarotid injection of capsaicin(More)
Expression of c-fos protein in the medulla oblongata after baroreceptor activation by elevated intrasinus pressure (ISP) and perfusion of adenosine (Ado) was examined in 14 vascularly isolated carotid sinus perfusion rats. The results showed that Fos-like immunoreactive (FLI) neurons were distributed throughout nucleus tractus solitarius, area postrema,(More)
To observe the effect of intracarotid administration of adenosine on the electrical activity of area postrema (AP) neurons, 76 spontaneous active units were recorded from 45 sino-aortic denervated Sprague-Dawley rats using extracellular recording technique. The results obtained are as follows. (1) Following intracarotid administration of adenosine (Ado, 25(More)
The effects of intracarotid injection of capsaicin on spontaneous electrical activity of nucleus paragigantocellularis lateralis (PGL) neurons in rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) were examined in 35 anesthetized rats with sino-aortic denervation by using extracellular recording technique. The results obtained were as follows: (1) In response to(More)
Using extracellular recording technique, the effects of L-arginine (L-arg), SIN-1 and N-nitro-L-arginine (L-NNA) on glutamate-induced discharge of neurons in CA1 area of hippocampal slices were examined to define the role of L-arg:NO pathway in glutamate-induced discharge of hippocampal neurons and its possible underlying mechanism. The results obtained are(More)
