During pregnancy, changes in circulating levels of hormones, including estrogens, correlates with a significant decrease in the relapse incidence in women with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In the present study, we demonstrate that both primary and cell line cultures of rat oligodendrocytes express the estrogen receptor (ER)-alpha and ERbeta estrogen receptors(More)
Mephedrone (4-methylmethcathinone) is a new and popular drug of abuse widely available on the Internet and still legal in some parts of the world. Clinical reports are now emerging suggesting that the drug displays sympathomimetic toxicity on the cardiovascular system but no studies have yet explored its cardiovascular effects. Therefore we examined the(More)
Endothelial second messenger responses may contribute to the pathology of high vascular pressure but remain poorly understood because of the lack of direct in situ quantification. In lung venular capillaries, we determined endothelial cytosolic Ca(2+) concentration [Ca(2+)](i) by the fura 2 ratioing method. Pressure elevation increased mean endothelial(More)

Am J Physiol Lung Cell Mol Physiol 282: L917–L923, 2002; 10.1152/ajplung.00275.2001.—Endothelial second messenger responses may contribute to the pathology of high vascular pressure but remain poorly understood because of the lack(More)
A β-actin-luc transgenic mouse model was used to evaluate whether embryo-fetal exposure could occur after intravaginal administration of a compound. A bioluminescent substrate, d-luciferin, was delivered intravaginally to mimic compound exposure to the female reproductive track and the embryo-fetus. Bioluminescence was observed throughout the reproductive(More)
The endothelial avb3 integrin occurs luminally, where its ligation by soluble agents may induce inflammatory signaling. We tested this hypothesis in bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cell monolayers with the use of vitronectin and cross-linking antibodies to ligate and aggregate the integrin. We quantified the endothelial cytosolic Ca concentration(More)
During the past two decades the use and refinements of imaging modalities have markedly increased making it possible to image embryos and fetuses used in pivotal nonclinical studies submitted to regulatory agencies. Implementing these technologies into the Good Laboratory Practice environment requires rigorous testing, validation, and documentation to(More)
