We examined the in vitro effects of neurotransmitters, high KCl as well as sialic acid-containing compounds (GM1; SC) on transglutaminase (TG) activity in isolated superior cervical ganglia (SCG) one week after denervation or axotomy. Following denervation, TG activity in SCG decreased to 83% of the unoperated control value, whereas that of axotomized(More)
Cyclic GMP (cGMP) production in rat superior cervical sympathetic ganglia (SCG) was markedly increased (ca. 7-9-fold) by the addition of either acetylcholine (ACh; 0.1 mM) or a muscarinic agonist, carbachol (Carb; 0.1 mM), in the presence of an inhibitor (3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine) for cGMP hydrolytic enzyme during in vitro aerobic incubation at 37(More)
The activity of transglutaminase (TG), a Ca(2+)-dependent enzyme contributing to cross-linkage formation of intracellular polypeptide chains decreased rapidly to ca. 25% of control level in superior cervical ganglia (SCG) within 0.5 h following denervation. The reduced level was maintained for at least 24 h. By contrast, following axotomy, ganglionic TG(More)
Topic models can be used in an unsuper-vised domain adaptation for Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD). In the domain adaptation task, three types of topic models are available: (1) a topic model constructed from the source domain corpus: (2) a topic model constructed from the target domain corpus, and (3) a topic model constructed from both domains. Basically,(More)
The activity of transglutaminase (TG), a Ca(2+)-dependent enzyme indicating tissue degradation or differentiation, showed in isolated adult rat superior cervical ganglia (SCG) a rapid (within 15 to 30 min) and marked (approx. 5- to 8-fold) increase with the addition of either GM1 ganglioside (GM1, 5 nM), which is rich in synapses, or sialyl cholesterol (SC,(More)
The anisotropic Knight shift of implanted positive muons (micro(+)) in CeB(6) has been studied between 2.2 and 200 K in a field of 0.6 T. The results imply that the field-induced magnetization distribution is not only found at the Ce sites but also in other regions of the unit cell (e.g., near or inside the B6 molecule, as proposed by Saitoh et al.
