A chlorambucil (CLB)-resistant cell line, N50-4, was developed from the established mouse fibroblast cell line NIH 3T3, by multistep drug selection. The mutant cells exhibited greater than 10-fold resistance to CLB. Alterations in GSH and glutathione S-transferase (GST) were found in CLB-resistant variants. A 7-10-fold increase in cellular GSH content and a(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the protective effects of brain-derived neurotrophic factor on the noise-damaged cochlear spiral ganglion. METHODS Recombinant adenovirus brain-derived neurotrophic factor vector, recombinant adenovirus LacZ and artificial perilymph were prepared. Guinea pigs with audiometric auditory brainstem response thresholds of more than 75 dB(More)
The role of cyclic AMP in cell proliferation and division has been the subject of study by a number of investigators in the past 30 years, but the argument of whether cyclic AMP is a negative or a positive regulator has not been settled. We studied the effect of cyclic AMP on proliferation of normal and postpneumonectomized lung tissues in young adult rats(More)
The effects of many usual penetration enhancers such as azone (AZ), oleic acid (OA), poloxamer 188 (POL 188) and propylene glycol (PG) on the blood glucose level in diabetic rats after transdermal iontophoresis of insulin were studied. The change of blood glucose level (D%), defined as the percent ratio of the concentration of blood glucose in rats after(More)
The cross-linked MTX-gelatin microsphere was chosen as an experimental model. Pharmacokinetics and biodegradable period of the microsphere were studied after hepatic arterial embolization in vivo in dogs. After hepatic arterial infusion, the concentration of MTX-ms in peripheral vein blood increased rapidly and declined slowly. In contrast, the peak time of(More)
50 retinoblastoma paraffin blocks were studied immunohistochemically (NSE, GFAP) and histochemically (colloidal-iron, RNA), and 13 cases by EM. The Rb cells demonstrated varying degrees of positive or negative reaction to NSE, most F-W and H-W rosettes being positive and the fleuretes weakly positive or negative. The GFAP positive cells were mainly found in(More)
This study was conducted in an attempt to differentiate the contribution of hyperventilation, if any, from that of low PO2 on adaptive lung growth in response to hypoxia. Male albino rats were exposed to one of the following: (1) Room air for 7 days, as control; (2) 10% O2 in N2 for 7 days; (3) 10% O2 for 6 h, 1 day or 2 days and air for the remaining of 7(More)
