Histamine levels and clonic convulsions of electrically-induced seizure in mice: the effects of α-fluoromethylhistidine and metoprine
SummaryThe purpose of this study was to investigate the possible role of the central histaminergic neuron system in electrically-induced seizure in mice. For this purpose, we examined the effects ofExpand
tRNA-like structures in 10Sa RNAs of Mycoplasma capricolum and Bacillus subtilis.
The stable RNAs, whose sequences are homologous to 10Sa RNA of Escherichia coli, have been isolated from Mycoplasma capricolum and Bacillus subtilis, both belonging to the Gram-positive bacterialExpand
Characterization of a protein tyrosine phosphatase (RIP) expressed at a very early stage of differentiation in both mouse erythroleukemia and embryonal carcinoma cells
From our previous studies, several protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPase) are implicated in the early events leading to in vitro differentiation of both mouse erythroleukemia (MEL) and embryonalExpand
Isolation and characterization of a novel human gene expressed specifically in the cells of hematopoietic lineage.
A novel cDNA clone designated as HS1, which show an expression pattern limited to human hematopoietic cells, was isolated. About 2kb mRNA of the clone was accumulated in all the mature and immatureExpand
Molecular cloning of a RNA binding protein, S1-1.
S1 proteins A-D constitute a nuclear protein family that are liberated rapidly in a set from chromatin by mild digestion with a DNA or RNA hydrolyzing enzyme. With an anti-S1-protein B antiserum thatExpand
Thrombomodulin Attenuates Inflammatory Damage Due to Liver Ischemia and Reperfusion Injury in Mice in Toll‐Like Receptor 4–Dependent Manner
Liver ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) is an important problem in liver transplantation. Thrombomodulin (TM), an effective drug for disseminated intravascular coagulation, is also known to exhibitExpand
The mouse L-histidine decarboxylase gene: structure and transcriptional regulation by CpG methylation in the promoter region.
To investigate the regulation of mouse L-histidine decarboxylase (HDC) gene expression, we isolated genomic DNA clones encoding HDC. Structural analysis revealed that the mouse HDC gene was composedExpand
Functional analysis of alternatively spliced transcripts of the human histidine decarboxylase gene and its expression in human tissues and basophilic leukemia cells.
L-Histidine decarboxylase (HisDC) is the enzyme catalyzing the formation of histamine from L-histidine. HisDC activity is expressed specifically in mast cells/basophils, endocrine cells in stomach,Expand
Nuclear factors binding to the human immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene enhancer.
The human immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) gene contains at least two tissue-specific regulatory regions, which are similar to the mouse IgH gene. One is the J-C enhancer and another is located inExpand
