The human Na(+)-glucose cotransporter (hSGLT1) has been shown to generate, in the absence of sugar, presteady-state currents in response to a change in potential, which could be fitted with single exponentials once the voltage had reached a new constant value. By the cut-open oocyte technique (voltage rising-speed approximately 1 mV/microsecond),(More)
The Na+-glucose cotransporter (SGLT1) expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes was shown to generate a phlorizin-sensitive sodium leak in the absence of sugars. Using the current model for SGLT1, where the sodium leak was presumed to occur after two sodium ions are bound to the free carrier before glucose binding, a characteristic concentration constant (Kc) was(More)
In the mammalian autonomic nervous system, tonic and phasic neurons can be differentiated on firing patterns in response to long depolarizing current pulse. However, the similar firing patterns in the somatic primary sensory neurons and their functional significance are not well investigated. Here, we identified two types of neurons innervating somatic(More)
The changes in yields and nutritive composition of whole crop wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) during maturation and effects of maturity stage and lactic acid bacteria (LAB) inoculants on the fermentation quality and aerobic stability were investigated under laboratory conditions. Whole crop wheat harvested at three maturation stages: flowering stage, milk(More)
