Sticholysins I and II (St I/II) are cytolysins purified from the sea anemone Stichodactyla helianthus. In this study, we show their pharmacological action on guinea-pig and snail models in native and pH-denatured conditions in order to correlate the pharmacological findings with the pore-forming activity of both isoforms. In guinea-pig erythrocytes (N = 3),(More)
1. The effect of theophylline on ion transport was examined using an in vitro short-circuited preparation of lizard colon. 2. Theophylline increased short circuit current (Isc) and transmural potential difference (PD). This increase caused by theophylline was accompanied by a small increase in transmural conductance (Gt). 3. Theophylline did not inhibit the(More)
1. Electrical parameters and transepithelial glucose and galactose transport were determined in vitro across anterior and posterior intestine of the culture fish Sparus aurata. 2. Electrical potential difference (PD) and short-circuit current (Isc) were serosa-positive in anterior intestine, while they were serosa-negative or near zero in posterior(More)
A canine model of distraction osteogenesis has recently been developed that permitted the evaluation of bone formation and its vascularization during bifocal callotasis. In this model, the authors examined the composition of the blood vessels during distraction osteogenesis of the mandible for laminin and for Type IV collagen, both constituents of the(More)
BACKGROUND Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) have a significant role in the sensation of pain and constitute an important target for the search of new antinociceptive drugs. In this work we studied the antinociceptive properties of the BM-21 extract, obtained from the sea grass Thalassia testudinum, in chemical and thermal models of nociception in mice. The(More)
Resumen Context: Acrylamide (ACR) neurotoxicity is associated with the enhancement of lipid peroxidation and the reduction of the antioxidative capacity distal axon and nerve terminal regions. The aqueous ethanolic extract of the marine plant Thalassia testudinum, named BM-21, have shown antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Aims: To(More)
Two different methods, fluorescent phallotoxins and immunohistochemical amplification systems were used to visualize actin in normal human hepatocytes. With fluorescent phallotoxins (NBD-phallacidin or rhodamine phalloidin), F-actin was distributed along the plasma membranes and at the bile canaliculi. With immunohistochemical methods (biotin-avidin,(More)
ÐCarotenoids have been considered as special nutrients due to their biological activity as provitamin A compounds, and because of their natural antioxidant and anticarcinogenic properties. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the protective e€ect of carotenoids against the genotoxic cellular damage induced by diethylnitrosamine (DEN), a potent(More)
