The effects of direct and indirect electrical stimulation on intracellular potassium and sodium contents ([K]i and [Na]i, respectively) in rat soleus muscle (SOL) and extensor digitorum longus muscle (EDL) were investigated under in vivo conditions. The changes of [K]i and [Na]i contents in both muscles which were stimulated indirectly reached respective(More)
OBJECTIVES Improved brain uptake ratio (IBUR), employing (99m)Tc-ethyl cysteinate dimer ((99m)Tc-ECD), is an automatic non-invasive method for quantitatively measuring regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). This method was developed by the reconstruction of the theory and linear regression equation, based on rCBF measurement by H2 (15)O positron emission(More)

The advantage of X-ray sources based on Compton Back Scattering (CBS) processes is to be able to develop compact devices, which can produce an intense flux of monochromatic X-rays. CBS results from collisions between laser pulses and relativistic electron bunches. Due to the relative low value of the Compton cross section, an intense electron beam with a(More)
The CNS-mediated inhibition of active Na(+)-K+ transport in both "type S" muscle, soleus (SOL), and "type FF" muscle, extensor digitorum longus (EDL) was investigated in rats suspended horizontally. Plasma Na+ and K+ contents did not change during the suspension period. The relative wet weight of SOL decreased more than that of EDL by suspension. There was(More)
The relationship between intracellular total K+ concentration [( K]i) as determined by a flame spectrophotometer and intracellular K+ activity (aKi) as determined by an ion-selective microelectrode was studied in soleus muscle of rats on a diet deficient in K+ for 40 days. [K]i began to fall immediately from the initial stage of hypokalemia, while aKi was(More)
[Na]i, [K]i and wet weight of the extensor digitrum longus (EDL) and soleus (SOL) muscles of 9- and 52-week-old rats were measured for 7 days after sectioning of the sciatic nerve. The changes in wet weight of the EDL and SOL muscles of rats over 52 weeks and those of morbid state rats were also measured. There was no significant difference in wet weights(More)
CNS-induced suppressions of active Na+, K+ transport was investigated in both 'tonic' muscles, soleus (SOL), and 'twitch' muscle, extensor digitorum longus (EDL) of deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA) hypertensive rats. There was a marked K+ loss and Na+ accumulation in the skeletal and smooth muscles of DOCA hypertensive rats. The cellular K+ loss was in(More)
The intracellular Na and K concentrations ([Na]i, [K]i) of extensor digitrum longus (EDL) and soleus (SOL) muscles of 3- to 52-week-old rats were estimated flame-photometrically. The extracellular space of 3-week-old rat muscles was significantly greater than that of 15-week-old rat muscles. The [K]i of the both muscles decreased gradually with age while(More)
