The effects of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) on Ca2+-dependent K+ (KCa) channels in cultured bovine adrenal chromaffin cells were investigated using single channel recording patch-clamp techniques. KCa channels were activated by application of 100 microM SNP to the extracellular side of cell-attached patches. Methylene blue (300 microM), an inhibitor of(More)
We found that nonlethal lysosomal enzyme release from human peripheral blood leukocytes during phagocytosis of opsonized zymosan in vitro was modified by the oxygen tension under which the cells were incubated; with decreasing Po(2), zymosan-induced release of lysosomal enzymes was potentiated. The effect on enzyme release could not be attributed(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic endometritis (CE) is a continuous inflammation of uterine endometrium, and it is usually symptomless. As CE has been thought not to affect the reproductive status and general health of affected women, its significance has not been explored. However, recent studies have shown that CE is related with repeated implantation failures after in(More)
