Proteomic analysis was carried out for neuronal vacuolation in rat retrosplenial cortex (RSC) induced by MK-801, a N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist. Female rats were given a single subcutaneous (sc) injection of either MK-801 (9 mg/kg in saline) or saline. Comparison of changes in proteins in the RSC region between MK-801- and saline-treated(More)
Carcinosarcoma is a rare neoplasm composed of malignant epithelial and stromal elements, and, for rats, carcinosarcomas in the kidney have not been reported. In a long-term study to gather background data, we encountered a spontaneous carcinosarcoma originating from the renal pelvis with metastasis to the lung.

Maxillary gingivae from male and female Crl:CD(SD) rats at 12, 16, 21, and 34 weeks of age were examined histologically. The incidence of gingivitis was approximately 40%, with no age or sex predilection, and was most frequent between the first and second molar.
