Brain incorporation of [1-14C]arachidonate ([14C]AA; 170 microCi/kg), [1-14C]docosahexaenoate ([14C]DA; 100 microCi/kg), or [9,10-3H]palmitate ([3H]PA; 6.4 mCi/kg) infused intravenously for 5 min was examined in the awake rat following systemic administration of the cholinomimetic arecoline (15 mg/kg i.p.). The rat was killed 15 min after infusion, and the(More)
BACKGROUND Barbiturates are reported to reduce brain oxidative metabolism and brain free fatty acid release during ischemia by mechanisms that are as yet unclear. To elucidate their action on brain lipid metabolism, an in vivo method was used to quantify the effect of pentobarbital on the incorporation of radiolabeled palmitic acid from blood into lipids of(More)
In cultured hepatocytes entrapped within Ca-alginate, liver-specific functions such as induction of tyrosine aminotransferase and serine dehydratase were stimulated by increasing the cell density. In contrast, a growth-related function such as induction of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was strongly stimulated by decreasing the cell density. This(More)
Incorporation of plasma [14C]palmitate into the hypoglossal nucleus of the rat following transection, with and without regeneration of the hypoglossal nerve, was studied using quantitative autoradiography. The left hypoglossal nerve of 3-month-old, male Fischer-344 rats was transected using either: (1) an R-operation, which allowed nerve regeneration; or(More)
Left or right stellate ganglion stimulation resulted in changes of ST segments and T waves of electrocardiogram. The present experiments were performed in an attempt to elucidate alpha-and beta-adrenergic actions, and calcium action on the monophasic action potential duration (APD), that is, the repolarizing phase of myocardium. During experiments in(More)
We tried to verify the hypothesis that increases in pump flow during diastole are matched by decreases in left ventricular (LV) output during systole. A calf (80 kg) was implanted with an implantable centrifugal blood pump (EVAHEART, SunMedical Technology Research Corp., Nagano, Japan) with left ventricle to aorta (LV-Ao) bypass, and parameters were(More)
