Ozone is an air pollutant that can cause severe respiratory health effects. Photochemical ozone production near the Earth's surface is considered a summertime, urban phenomenon 1–3 , where hourly average ozone concentrations can exceed 150 p.p.b., compared with background values of about 50 p.p.b., and wintertime ozone concentrations in the US are usually(More)
Cadmium is a potent inhibitor of hepatic microsomal drug biotransformation in the rat. Male rats receiving a single intraperitoneal dose of cadmium exhibit significant decreases in hepatic microsomal metabolism of a variety of substrates. The threshold cadmium dose is 0.84 mg Cd/kg, and the effect lasts at least 28 days. Mechanistically, the inhibitory(More)

Background CO 2 mole fraction and seasonal variations, measured at Zhongshan station, Antarctica, for 2010 through 2013, exhibit the expected lowest mole fraction in March with a peak in November. Irrespective of wind direction, the mole fraction of CO 2 distributes evenly after polluted air from station operations is removed from the data sets. The daily(More)
Experiments were conducted to determine if the acute hypothermia elicited by morphine in the rat resulted from morphine-induced inhibition of serotonin reuptake into hypothalamic nerve-endings. The acute hypothermia elicited by morphine (30 mg/kg, s.c.) was reversed by pretreatment with naloxone (10 mg/kg, s.c.), a narcotic antagonist, which alone did not(More)
