In order to explore the role of phospholipase A2 inhibition in the mechanisms of the action of glucocorticoids, it was investigated whether the steroid exhibits the analgesic and antipyretic actions as well as cyclo-oxygenase inhibitors such as indomethacin or not. Dexamethasone has been reported to produce the anti-inflammatory action with a lag time of at(More)
Mosapride citrate (mosapride), a prokinetic agent with 5-HT(4)-receptor agonistic activity, is known to enhance gastric emptying and alleviate symptoms in patients with functional dyspepsia (FD). As hyperalgesia and delayed gastric emptying play an important role in the pathogenesis of FD, we used in this study balloon gastric distension to enable abdominal(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant tumor progression is a complex and multi-gene event which can not be easily detected or predicted. The detection of malignant cells using marker genes is hampered by the fact that these markers are only expressed by certain malignancies or lack sensitivity and/or specificity. We have reported a human septin family gene Bradeion, which(More)
Prediction of peritoneal recurrence in gastric cancer patients is important for application of adjuvant chemotherapy. After surgery, occasional patients have peritoneal recurrence despite negative cytology of the peritoneal washings. Thus, molecular detection of a subliminal number of cancer cells in peritoneal washings may overcome the sensitivity(More)
The site of antipyretic action of AD-1590 in the sequential process involved in the development of fever caused by bacterial pyrogen (LPS) was investigated in rabbits. AD-1590 (1μg/ml) did not inactivate both LPS and leucocytic pyrogen (LP) and did not affect the generation of LP in thein vitro test. AD-1590 (0.1 mg/kg i.v.) prevented the fever caused by LP(More)
To predict the Tm value of PNA/DNA duplex, we performed to determine the melting temperature of several PNA oligomers. For Tm calculation model building, we searched the correlativity of measured Tm value and each base contents of PNA oligomer. Here, We propose a novel formula for thermal stability (Tm) prediction of PNA/DNA duplexes.
The major components of storage starch are amylose and amylopectin, and in wheat, both an amylose-free mutant lacking granule-bound starch synthase I and a high-amylose mutant lacking starch synthase IIa have been produced recently. Here, we report the production of an amylose-free/ high-amylose double mutant. This double mutant has kernel and carbohydrate(More)
