Electrolyzed-reduced water scavenges active oxygen species and protects DNA from oxidative damage.
Active oxygen species or free radicals are considered to cause extensive oxidative damage to biological macromolecules, which brings about a variety of diseases as well as aging. The ideal scavengerExpand

Molecular cloning of a RNA binding protein, S1-1.
S1 proteins A-D constitute a nuclear protein family that are liberated rapidly in a set from chromatin by mild digestion with a DNA or RNA hydrolyzing enzyme. With an anti-S1-protein B antiserum thatExpand

A beneficial role of bile pigments as an endogenous tissue protector: anti-complement effects of biliverdin and conjugated bilirubin.
Bile pigments possess an anti-complement property and could be involved in tissue protection. In this study, we examined the physiological actions of bile pigments, which had been generally regardedExpand

Immune responses to xanthan gum I. The characteristics of lymphocyte activation by xanthan gum
Xanthan gum (XG), a microbial polysaccharide produced extracellularly by fermentation of Xanthomonas campestris, has unique physical properties. We studied the effects of XG on murine lymphocytes inExpand

Filter-binding assay procedure for thyroid hormone receptors.
An assay procedure for thyroid hormone receptor activity which used nitrocellulose membrane filters was developed. Receptor proteins, extracted from washed rat liver nuclei with a 0.4 M NaClExpand

Drug-specific T cells derived from patients with drug-induced allergic hepatitis.
Drug-induced allergic hepatitis is a tissue-specific inflammatory disease caused by hypersensitivity to a particular drug. Although the frequency of drug-induced allergic hepatitis appears toExpand

Induction of spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase by parathyroid hormone in rabbit costal chondrocytes in culture.
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) increased the activity of spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase, a rate-limiting enzyme of polyamine biodegradation, in rabbit costal chondrocytes in culture. The enzymeExpand

Fatty acyl-CoAs are potent inhibitors of the nuclear thyroid hormone receptor in vitro.
We report that long-chain fatty acyl-CoAs are potent inhibitors of the thyroid hormone (T3) receptor isolated from rat liver nuclei. Both saturated and unsaturated fatty acyl-CoAs were similarlyExpand

Effect of carrageenan on immune responses. II. A possible regulatory role of macrophages in the immune responses of low-responder mice.
Although C57BL/6 mice showed little response to low dose antigenic stimulation with dinitrophenylated bovine γ-globulin (DNP-BGG), this immune response was enhanced markedly by carrageenan treatment.Expand

Inhibition of ornithine decarboxylase induction of interferon (α+β) and its reversal by dibutyryl adenosine 3′, 5′-monophosphate
Interferon (α+β) given to C3H/HeN mice intraperitoneally inhibited increases in the activities of adenylate cyclase and ornithine decarboxylase after partial hepatectomy. The inhibition of ornithineExpand
