Effect of peptide chain length on absorption and intact transport of hydrolyzed soybean peptide in rat intestinal everted sac
In this study using everted sacs of rat jejunum, we investigated the difference in absorption of two types of soybean peptides (small peptide: SP, and large peptide: LP). We investigated theExpand

Potentiation of slow component of delayed rectifier K+ currentby cGMP via two distinct mechanisms: inhibition of phosphodiesterase 3 and activation of protein kinase G
Regulation of the slowly activating component of delayed rectifier K+ current (IKs) by intracellular guanosine 3′5′ cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) was investigated in guinea‐pig sino‐atrial (SA) nodeExpand

Activation of transepithelial ion transport by secretin in human intestinal Caco-2 cells.
Secretin stimulates bicarbonate secretion from pancreatic duct cells, but what influence secretin exerts on intestinal tissues remains to be clarified. The aim of this study is to examine effects ofExpand

Effect of fasting and feeding on polyamines and related enzymes along the villus: crypt axis.
Fasting and feeding have profound effects on crypt cell production and small bowel mucosal growth but the mechanism whereby food stimulates villus tip enterocytes to influence crypt cell productionExpand

Rapid intestinal ischaemia‐reperfusion injury is suppressed in genetically mast cell‐deficient Ws/Ws rats
Ws/Ws rats have a small deletion of the c‐kit gene, and are deficient in both mucosal and connective tissue‐type mast cells. In this study, the role of mucosal type mast cells (MMC) in theExpand

The role of mucosal mast cell degranulation and free-radical generation in intestinal ischaemia-reperfusion injury in rats.
OBJECTIVES In this study, we determined the role of mucosal mast cell (MMC) activation in the pathogenesis of intestinal ischaemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury by immunohistochemical analysis usingExpand

Hepatoprotective effect of a curcumin/absinthium compound in experimental severe liver injury
OBJECTIVE:  A preliminary in vitro study with hepatocyte culture showed that concentrations as low as 10 µg/mL of PN-M001 are able to significantly mitigate CCl4 hepatocyte damage (P < 0.05)Expand

Monitor Peptide (Rat Pancreatic Secretory Trypsin Inhibitor) Directly Stimulates the Proliferation of the Nontransformed Intestinal Epithelial Cell Line, IEC-6
Background/Aims: The growth-stimulating activity of monitor peptide [rat pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor (PSTI)-61] was evaluated in the rat intestinal epithelial cell line IEC-6. In responseExpand
