BACKGROUND The Long-Evans cinnamon (LEC) rat has a mutation homologous to the human Wilson's disease gene, leading to copper-induced hepatotoxicity. The mechanism of how excess copper damages the liver or what chemical form of copper is toxic is still unclear. RESULTS In liver cytosol, copper levels were highest just before the onset of hepatitis and(More)
Long-Evans Cinnamon (LEC) rats aged 16 ± 4 weeks with histopathological alterations of liver and kidney, exhibited elevated Cu levels in liver, kidney and spleen which were 52, 27 and 5 times higher than those of the respective tissues of age-matched Wistar rats. About 61% of hepatic and about 38% of renal Cu was recovered in the cytosolic fraction.(More)
The most disabling aspect of human peripheral nerve injuries, the majority of which affect the upper limbs, is the loss of skilled hand movements. Activity-induced morphological and electrophysiological remodeling of the neuromuscular junction has been shown to influence nerve repair and functional recovery. In the current study, we determined the effects(More)
Top loin (TLS), top sirloin (TSS), and eye of round (EYS) steaks, and loin end (LRR) and blade end (BRR) rib, and eye of round (EYR) roasts were used to determine the effect of USDA quality grade, Choice or Select, external fat trim level, and internal temperature endpoint on sensory, chemical and cooking characteristics. Cuts cooked with external fat(More)
OBJECTIVE In this paper we present an attempt at noninvasive imaging of distributed myocardial electrical activity in patients suffering from myocardial infarction and in healthy subjects. Although advances have been made, noninvasive three-dimensional imaging of cardiac electrophysiological activity is still in its infancy and extending our knowledge of(More)
Scalp-recorded direct current (DC) potentials and their topographical distribution (F3, F4, C3, C4 and Pz) were investigated at the transition from wakefulness to sleep, and during NREM-REM sleep and REM-NREM sleep transitions in 11 healthy men during normal sleep. Changes in endexpiratory CO2 partial pressure (ETCO2), scalp temperature and polysomnographic(More)
