Low-intensity electrical current (or mild electrical stimulation; MES) influences signal transduction and activates phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway. Because insulin resistance is characterized by a marked reduction in insulin-stimulated PI3K-mediated activation of Akt, we asked whether MES could increase Akt phosphorylation and ameliorate(More)
[Purpose] This study investigated the relationship between toe grip strength and foot posture in children. [Subjects and Methods] A total of 619 children participated in this study. The foot posture of the participants was measured using a foot printer and toe grip strength was measured using a toe grip dynamometer. Children were classified into 3 groups;(More)
The three-dimensional architectures of the perigemmal cells and their keratin bundles in the rat circumvallate papillae were studied by transmission and scanning electron microscopy. The perigemmal cells were classified into three layers: basal, middle and upper. The basal layer consisted of polygonal cells located close to the basal lamina, the middle(More)
