The levels of histamine (HA) and tele-methylhistamine (t-MH) were determined in five brain regions of Suncus murinus (suncus) and the effects of motion stimulus or drugs influencing the turnover of these amines were studied to elucidate the role of histamine in motion sickness. Shaking the animals for 2 min increased HA contents in telencephalon and(More)
Acute emetic responses to seven cancer chemotherapeutic agents (adriamycin, bleomycin, cisplatin, cyclophosphamide, 5-fluorouracil, methotrexate, mitomycin C) were studied in the Suncus murinus. Intravenous injection of the drugs caused vomiting with various latency. Cisplatin-induced emesis was prevented by the pretreatment with metoclopramide or(More)
Effects of various types of motion stimuli were compared to investigate optimum method to elicit motion sickness and adaptation in Suncus murinus (suncus). Three different direction of shaking in the horizontal plane, back and forth, right and left and revolving, induced emetic response to the similar extent. However, vertical shaking was far less effective(More)
We have shown previously that Suncus murinus, a species of the insectivore, can vomit in response to various emetogenic stimuli. In the present study we investigated whether or not Sorex unguiculatus, which belongs to different subfamily (Soricinae) of insectivore, vomits in response to emetogenic drugs. Subcutaneous injection of veratrine and oral(More)
Soybean plants autoregulate to suppress excessive nodulation. It has been revealed recently that the autoregulation of various legumes controls both nodulation and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungal colonization. We investigated the involvement of autoregulation in the interaction between rhizobial nodulation and AM fungal colonization. We used a wild-type(More)
The original version of this article unfortunately contains an error in page 1145, second column, fourth line from the bottom. The word “Kanto100” should read as “Enrei.” Therefore, the entire sentence should read as, “In plants inoculated with the AM fungus alone, the arbuscule abundance in the roots of Kanto100 was 3.6–8.0 % higher than in Enrei, but a(More)
