Activation mechanism of Ca(2+)‐sensitive transient outward current in rabbit ventricular myocytes.
1. The mechanism of activation of the Ca(2+)‐sensitive and 4‐aminopyridine (4‐AP)‐insensitive transient outward current, I(to)(Ca), was examined in single rabbit ventricular myocytes using theExpand

Effects of adenophostin-A and inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate on Cl- currents in Xenopus laevis oocytes.
Adenophostin-A, a novel compound isolated from cultures of Penicillium brevicompactum, has been shown to stimulate Ca2+ release from inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3)-sensitive Ca2+ stores inExpand

A new method for determining lipase activity in locust fat body
Abstract A new method for determining lipase activity in locust fat body is described. The procedure uses a micellar solution of triolein as substrate and demonstrates high and reproducible lipaseExpand

Identification of quantitative trait loci for rice grain quality and yield-related traits in two closely related Oryza sativa L. subsp. japonica cultivars grown near the northernmost limit for rice
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with eating quality, grain appearance quality and yield-related traits were mapped in recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from closely related riceExpand

Effects of protein phosphatase and kinase inhibitors on the cardiac L- type Ca current suggest two sites are phosphorylated by protein kinase A and another protein kinase
We previously showed (Frace, A.M. and H.C. Hartzell. 1993. Journal of Physiology. 472:305-326) that internal perfusion of frog atrial myocytes with the nonselective protein phosphatase inhibitorsExpand

Effects of protein phosphatase and kinase inhibitors on Ca2+ and Cl- currents in guinea pig ventricular myocytes.
It is well-established that in heart, both the L-type Ca2+ channel and the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator Cl- channel are regulated by cAMP-dependent phosphorylation. However, itExpand

Successful treatment of Rosai–Dorfman disease with low‐dose oral corticosteroid
We present herein a Japanese case of Rosai–Dorfman disease (RDD) in which cutaneous manifestations completely remitted after treatment with low‐dose oral corticosteroid. A 69‐year‐old Japanese manExpand

A new scorpion toxin (BmK-PL) stimulates Ca2+-release channel activity of the skeletal-muscle ryanodine receptor by an indirect mechanism.
A peptide toxin isolated from the Chinese scorpion Buthus martensi Karsch (BmK-PL) stimulated Ca2+-release channel activity in both triad membranes and reconstituted ryanodine receptors partiallyExpand
