We studied the relationship between heat stress (2 h, +12 degrees ) and increased levels of circulating cortisol (50 microg cortisol/g body weight) on heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) levels in liver and gill tissues of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus). The administration of cortisol by intraperitoneal injection (no(More)
Mild hypothermia shows protective effects on patients with brain damage and cardiac arrest. To elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects, we analyzed the effects of low culture temperature (32 degrees C) and cold-inducible RNA-binding protein (Cirp) expression on apoptosis in vitro. In BALB/3T3 cells treated with tumor necrosis factor(More)
We compared the usefulness of Eviprostat tablet, a therapeutic agent for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and EVI-F tablet, a new formulation of Eviprostat containing two times more active ingredients (Chimaphila umbellata extract, Populus tremula extract, Pulsatilla pratensis extract, Equisetum arvense extract and purified wheat germ oil) and(More)
Changes of nitrite production in mouse spleen cells of in vitro secondary antibody response were investigated. Mouse spleen cells immunized with gamma globulin fraction of rat serum produced nitrite 3 days after in vitro challenging with the same antigen. Nitrite production of rabbit IgG-challenged spleen cells was found to be about 2.9-times higher than(More)
