Fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) promotes proliferation of neuroprogenitor cells in culture and is up-regulated within brain after injury. Using mice genetically deficient in FGF-2 (FGF-2(-/-) mice), we addressed the importance of endogenously generated FGF-2 on neurogenesis within the hippocampus, a structure involved in spatial, declarative, and(More)
Vitamin E (tocopherol: Toc) is an important lipid-soluble antioxidant synthesized in chloroplasts. Among the 8 isoforms of vitamin E, α-Toc has the highest activity in humans. To generate transgenic plants with enhanced vitamin E activity, we applied a chloroplast transformation technique. Three types of the transplastomic tobacco plants (pTTC, pTTMT and(More)
To decide the application of tricalcium phosphate (TCP)to periodontal therapy, following fundamental studies on TCP were performed. Materials used were six kinds of TCPs of which firing temperature were 900 • Ž(LT)and 1,100 • Ž (HT), and diameter were less than 100,um(size S), 200 • `300,ƒÊm(size M)and 500 • `1,000,um(size L). To investigate the surface(More)
