An increasing number of reports suggest a role for A3 adenosine receptors (A3ARs) in mediating adenosine action in the central nervous system. However, studies of A3AR localization in the brain have yet to be performed. To provide insights into the central sites of A3AR action, we compared patterns of A1 and A3AR mRNA and binding site expression in the(More)
A1 adenosine receptors (A1ARs) are expressed in the brain during critical periods of neurogenesis and neuronal differentiation. To examine influences of A1AR activation on neuronal development we studied the effects of A1AR activation on process growth in PC12 cells expressing A1ARs and in primary cultures of cortical and hippocampal neurons. In PC12 cells,(More)
BACKGROUND: Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) treatment of animals down-regulates the expression of hepatic genes involved in a broad variety of physiological processes, collectively known as the negative hepatic acute phase response (APR). Retinoid X receptor alpha (RXRalpha), the most highly expressed RXR isoform in liver, plays a central role in regulating bile(More)
We investigated the effect of ileal bile acid transport on the regulation of classic and alternative bile acid synthesis in cholesterol-fed rats and rabbits. Bile acid pool sizes, fecal bile acid outputs (synthesis rates), and the activities of cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase (classic bile acid synthesis) and cholesterol 27-hydroxylase (alternative bile acid(More)
Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia with Misalignment of Pulmonary Veins (ACDMPV) is a developmental disorder of the lungs, primarily affecting their vasculature. FOXF1 haploinsufficiency due to heterozygous genomic deletions and point mutations have been reported in most patients with ACDMPV. The majority of mice with heterozygous loss-of-function of Foxf1(More)
UNLABELLED P2 purinergic receptors are overexpressed in certain cancer tissues, but the pathophysiologic relevance of purinergic signaling in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unknown. To examine the role of P2 purinergic signaling in the pathogenesis of HCC and characterize extracellular nucleotide effects on HCC cell proliferation, two independent(More)
