The location of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptors in the rat stomach has not been elucidated. It was recently reported that the CGRP receptor is formed when a calcitonin-receptor-like receptor (CRLR) and receptor activity modifying protein (RAMP) 1 are co-expressed on the cell membrane. The aim of this study was to determine the location and(More)
Sustained virologic response with peg-interferon and ribavirin combination therapy for 48 weeks is still inadequate. Our study examined whether short-term administration of retinol clinically influences the anti-viral activity of interferon early during interferon and ribavirin combination therapy. The control group received 6 MIU of interferon alpha-2b(More)
We have reported that the recently described circling behavior rat (CLX) is a hereditary mutant controlled by a single sex-linked recessive gene (gene symbol: clx). This mutant shows intermittent circle walking and/or running and head tossing with the neck twisted. The abnormal behavior begins to appear around weaning and continues throughout life. In the(More)
A male rat showing intermittent circling behavior was discovered among the Jcl:Wistar rats in our laboratories, and among its backcross offspring individuals showing the same behavior were found. The abnormalities in these animals were characterized by intermittent circling behavior (walking and/or running in circles) and head tossing with the neck twisted.(More)
