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. At necropsy, a mass was observed in the(More)
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. Lesions were characterized by acute focal neutrophilic infiltration into the gingival mucosa,(More)
External gigong emitted by a quartz crystal upon application of electric current was evaluated by its biological effects, such as changes in frequency-analyzed electroencephalograms (EEG) in rabbits and spontaneous electrical activity of the rat pineal gland. Physical properties of this external gigong cannot be evaluated by currently available physical(More)
