Vascular smooth muscle (VSM) proliferation and migration are key components in vessel remodeling. Cyclic nucleotide signaling is protective and has long-served as a therapeutic target against undesired VSM growth. The present work analyzed the effects of the soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulator(More)
In humans as well as in other animal species, the ingestion of food provides the fundamental source of energy for various cellular activities. The intake of food and the ability of controlling the plasma levels of substrates for energy production involve complex mechanisms that ensure a constantly adequate supply of metabolites both in the fasting and in(More)
o-Benzyl-p-chlorophenol was evaluated for its potential as a sensitizing agent for allergic contact hypersensitivity in mice. Female B6C3F1 mice were sensitized with 1.0, 3.0, and 10.0% o-benzyl-p-chlorophenol and challenged with 20.0% o-benzyl-p-chlorophenol. Doses of o-benzyl-p-chlorophenol were selected from assays for primary irritancy. Mice received 20(More)
The mucosae form a barrier between our bodies and a hostile external environment. Diseases and extrinsic factors which impair mucosal function may lead to serious consequences. The mucosal immune system is the primary mediator of specific immunity at mucosal surfaces. As such, it is responsible for maintaining homeostasis and for defense against both overt(More)
Isophorone diisocyanate was evaluated for its potential as a sensitizing agent for allergic contact hypersensitivity in mice. Female B6C3F1 mice were sensitized with 0.1, 0.3, and 1.0% isophorone diisocyanate and challenged with 3.0% isophorone diisocyanate. Doses of isophorone diisocyanate were selected from assays for primary irritancy. Mice received 20(More)
