We investigated the effect of type 1 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) regulatory protein Tat on N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors expressed in Xenopus oocytes by voltage-clamp recording and its role in NMDA-mediated neurotoxicity using cultured rat hippocampal neurons. Tat (0.01-1muM) potentiated NMDA-induced currents of recombinant NMDA receptors.(More)
We examine the respiratory, bronchomotor, cardiac, and vascular responses to histamine and ragweed allergen delivered to the bronchi or alveoli compartments and the potential role of sensory nerves and reflexes mediating the histamine-induced responses. The masses of aerosols deposited in the bronchi and alveoli were quantitated using radioaerosol(More)

A new receipe consisting of Phyllanthus fraternus Webster, Eclipta alba and curcumin was prepared. The efficacy of this preparation was tested in carbontetrachloride (CCl(4)) induced fatty liver model in rats. This preparation was able to normalize the level of lipids accumulating in liver due to CCl(4) injury and it was also able to bring down elevated(More)
