A sufficient supply of NADPH is a critical factor in l-lysine production by Corynebacterium glutamicum. Endogenous NAD-dependent glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) of C. glutamicum was replaced with nonphosphorylating NADP-dependent glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GapN) of Streptococcus mutans, which catalyzes the reaction of(More)
Cytotoxicity-guided fractionation of the 80% EtOH extract of Tithonia diversifolia has resulted in the isolation of twelve sesquiterpenoids (1-12), including three new ones (4, 10, 12), and three known flavonoids (13-15). The structures of the new compounds were determined by analysis of their spectroscopic data. The isolated compounds showed cytotoxic(More)
For genotyping of feline major histocompatibility complex (FLA) class II DRB, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) method using group-specific primers was tried. Sixty-six DRB genes were classified into 8 groups according to differences in the first 5' amino acid sequences. The group-specific primers were(More)
Various procedure-related adverse events related to colonoscopic treatment have been reported. Previous studies on the complications of colonoscopic treatment have focused primarily on perforation or bleeding. Coagulation syndrome (CS), which is synonymous with transmural burn syndrome following endoscopic treatment, is another typical adverse event. CS is(More)
Cytological, histopathological and immunohistochemical examinations were carried out on a presumed 10-year-old Japanese cat showing vomiting and emaciation. On cytologic examination of the mass of the upper abdominal cavity, many yeast-like organisms were detected in the macrophages. At necropsy, the upper part of colon was markedly dilated with a thickened(More)
OBJECTIVE To clarify the potential of TRK-380 as a drug for overactive bladder in humans by evaluating the agonistic activities for human β-adrenergic receptors (β-ARs) and the relaxing effects on isolated detrusor strips. METHODS The agonistic activities for human β-ARs were evaluated in SK-N-MC cells (for human β(3)-ARs) and Chinese hamster ovary cells(More)
Progressive glomerular injury associated with early-onset proteinuria was investigated in male Osborne-Mendel (OM) rats aged 5 to 20 weeks. Age-matched male Fischer 344 (F344) rats were used for comparison. OM rats developed mild hypertension and selective proteinuria (albuminuria) from 5 weeks of age, and non-selective proteinuria from 7 weeks of age.(More)
Bone marrow cell infusion (BMI) has recently been suggested as an effective therapy for refractory liver disease; however, the efficiency of BMI using canine bone marrow cells (cBMCs) has not been reported. We evaluated the accumulation potential of cBMCs in a mouse model of acute liver failure. Acute hepatitis was induced by carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of TRK-380, a selective β3-adrenoceptor (β3-AR) agonist, on voiding behavior in rats with pollakiuria and on carbachol (CCh)-induced bladder contraction in dogs. METHODS The voiding behavior of female Sprague Dawley rats was recorded continuously with a balance. Rats were intravesically pretreated with 2.5% formalin(More)
We previously investigated rabbit hereditary cerebellar cortical degenerative disease, called cerebellar cortical abiotrophy in the veterinary field, and determined that the pathogenesis of this disease is the result of failed synaptogenesis between parallel fibers and Purkinje cells. In this study, longitudinal changes in the development and atrophy of the(More)
