The senescence accelerated mouse (SAM) is known as a murine model of aging. SAM consists of senescence accelerated-prone mouse (SAMP) and senescence accelerated-resistant mouse (SAMR). Previous studies reported that SAMP10 exhibits age-related learning impairments and behavioral depression in a tail suspension test after 7 months. We investigated the(More)
The senescence-accelerated mouse (SAM) is known to be a murine model for accelerated aging. A novel inbred SAMP10 has shown age-related brain atrophy and learning deficiency. In the present study, we investigated the changes in learning ability and in ligand binding with muscarinic acetylcholine (mACh) receptors, alpha adrenoceptors and protein kinase C in(More)
INTRODUCTION Toll-like receptors (TLRs) mediate signaling that triggers activation of the innate immune system, whereas heme oxygenase (HO)-1 (an inducible heme-degrading enzyme that is induced by various stresses) suppresses inflammatory responses. We investigated the interaction between TLR and HO-1 in an inflammatory disorder, namely Behçet's disease. (More)
