The hepatoprotective potential DTS (1.5 g/kg bw, Denshici-to-Chiusei, Kyotsu Jigyo, Tokyo, Japan) was evaluated against either toxic (1.5 g/kg bw) and sub-toxic (150 mg/kg bw) dosage of paracetamol-induced liver injury in Sprague-Dawley rat. Paracetamol intoxication caused a reduction of serum total protein and increase levels of serum alkaline phosphatase(More)
1. Literature data suggest that the electron-donating enzyme, cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR), might act as a source of reactive oxygen species (ROS). However, the role of CPR in pathophysiological conditions associated with oxidative stress is unknown. The aim of the present study was to study the role of CPR in the generation of ROS and cellular injury(More)
Controlling angiotensin AT1 receptor function has been shown to be protective for many pathophysiological disorders. Although estrogen metabolite, 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME2) can down-regulate angiotensin AT1 receptor expression independently of nuclear receptors, no specific cellular targets have been identified. This study was focused on identification and(More)
In the present study, we investigated the effects of tannic acid (TA), a hydrolysable polyphenol, on angiotensin type 1 receptor (AT1R) expression in continuously passaged rat liver epithelial cells. Under normal conditions, exposure of cells to TA resulted in the down-regulation of AT1R-specific binding in concentrations ranging from 12.5-100 μg/ml(More)
SUMMARY This research program deals with the application of high-performance computing methods to the numerical simulation of complete jet engines. The program was initiated in 1993 by applying two-dimensional parallel aeroelastic codes to the interior gas flow problem of a bypass jet engine. The fluid mesh generation, domain decomposition and solution(More)
