L-152,804: orally active and selective neuropeptide Y Y5 receptor antagonist.
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) elicits food intake through the action of hypothalamic G-protein-coupled receptors. Previous publications indicate that the Y5 receptor may represent one of these postulatedExpand

Establishment and characterization of a carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)‐producing cell line from a human carcinoma of the exocrine pancreas
A human carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)‐producing cell line, T3M‐4, has been established from explant cultures of a primary human pancreatic exocrine adenocarcinoma transplanted into nude mice. TheExpand

Demonstration of granulopoietic factor(s) in the plasma of nude mice transplanted with a human lung cancer and in the tumor tissue.
A human lung cancer (OTUK-tumor) was transplanted serially to nude mice, which invariably developed a marked neutrophilia. In order to analyze this phenomenon, in vitro agar culture studies wereExpand

Androgen receptor-dependent activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase in vascular endothelial cells: role of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/akt pathway.
The mechanisms of testosterone-induced vasodilatation are not fully understood. This study investigated the effect of testosterone on nitric oxide (NO) synthesis and its molecular mechanism usingExpand

Signaling pathway of nitric oxide production induced by ginsenoside Rb1 in human aortic endothelial cells: a possible involvement of androgen receptor.
Ginsenosides have been shown to stimulate nitric oxide (NO) production in aortic endothelial cells. However, the signaling pathways involved have not been well studied in human aortic endothelialExpand

Purification and properties of an endothelial cell growth factor from human platelets.
An endothelial cell growth factor has been purified about 1,000,000-fold to homogeneity from human platelets by a seven-step procedure. The purified product has an apparent Mr on sodium dodecylExpand

Identification and characterization of receptors for granulocyte colony-stimulating factor on human placenta and trophoblastic cells.
Since radioiodination of human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) is difficult, we synthesized a mutein of human G-CSF that retains full biological activity and receptor-binding capacityExpand

Ginsenoside Rb1 Prevents MPP+-Induced Apoptosis in PC12 Cells by Stimulating Estrogen Receptors with Consequent Activation of ERK1/2, Akt and Inhibition of SAPK/JNK, p38 MAPK
Ginsenoside Rb1 shows neuroprotective effects in various neurons, including dopaminergic cells. However, the precise mechanisms of action are uncertain. In this paper, we examine whether Rb1 has aExpand

Recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor as an activator of human granulocytes: potentiation of responses triggered by receptor- mediated agonists and stimulation of C3bi receptor
Recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) enhanced superoxide release and membrane depolarization in parallel in human granulocytes stimulated by the receptor-mediatedExpand

Treatment of myelodysplastic syndromes with recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor: a preliminary report.
PURPOSE The expansion of an abnormal hemopoietic stem cell line is responsible for the myelodysplastic syndromes, which are characterized by pancytopenias, often resulting in lethal infections.Expand
