Acyl-CoA thioesterases (Acots) are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of fatty acyl-CoAs to free fatty acids and coenzyme A, and have the potential to regulate the intracellular levels of these molecules. In this study, we show that a cytosolic isoform, Acot1, is expressed and distributed in immature adipocytes located in the perivascular region of the(More)
It was found that reactive oxygen species (ROS) were generated in the interactions of nitric oxide (NO) with glutathione (GSH) or cysteine (CySH) under aerobic conditions. When supercoiled DNA was incubated with a mixture of NO/GSH, NO/CySH, NOC-7 (a NO donor)/GSH or NOC-7/CySH under aerobic conditions, DNA single-strand breaks were observed on agarose gel(More)
We have introduced improvements and new approaches into our teaching methods by exploiting 4 active learning methods for pharmacy students of first year. The 4 teaching methods for each lesson or take home assignment are follows: 1) problem-based learning (clinical case) including a student presentation of the clinical case, 2) schematic drawings of the(More)
