Release of endogenous taurine by electrical stimulation of slices of the hippocampus, cerebral cortex, cerebellum and medulla oblongata of the rat was studied and compared with that of alanine and/or gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Electrical stimulation caused a calcium-dependent release of taurine from slices of the hippocampus, cerebral cortex and(More)
The kidney plays an important role in gluconeogenesis during starvation. To clarify the anti-diabetic action of angiotensin receptor blockers, we examined the effects of telmisartan on the sodium-glucose co-transporters (SGLT) and the pathways of renal gluconeogenesis in streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus (DM) rats. At 4 weeks, the DM rats treated(More)
