OBJECTIVE Sonography of the normal gastric wall delineates five distinct layers: from the luminal side, a first, inner hyperechoic layer; a second, hypoechoic layer; a third, middle hyperechoic layer; a fourth, hypoechoic layer; and a final, outer hyperechoic layer. The anatomic origin of the inner two sonographic layers has been a matter of controversy. To(More)
OBJECTIVE Quercetin, a phenolic compound isolated from plants, can act as an antioxidant to protect the skin from oxidative stress induced by ultraviolet rays. The aims of this work were (i) to compare the physical characterization of quercetin-loaded solid lipid nanoparticles (QSLNs) and (ii) to investigate the enhanced skin permeation of quercetin using(More)
Isolated rabbit aortic ring with intact endothelial cell preparations precontracted with NE (10(-7) M) were relaxed by vanadate in a dose dependent manner (from 0.2 to 2 mM). Application of vanadate and ACh during the tonic phase of high K+(100 mM)-induced contraction showed a slight relaxation in contrast to that in NE-induced contraction, but sodium(More)
To determine the prognostic significance of CT-determined cachexia scores (CSs) in 127 consecutive male small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients, cross-sectional areas of muscle and fat tissues at the third lumbar vertebra (L3) were retrospectively measured on baseline CT images. CSs were determined based on the presence of sarcopenia and/or adipopenia.(More)
In this study, we evaluated the inhibitory effects on melanogenesis of the ethyl acetate and methylene chloride fraction of 80% methanol extracts of mung bean (Vigna radiata L.) seeds and sprouts, germinated for specific lengths of time. The ethyl acetate fractions of extracts from mung bean seed and sprouts germinated for 1 d inhibited melanogenesis more(More)
The nucleotide sequence of 45,389 bp in the 184 degrees-180 degrees region of the Bacillus subtilis chromosome, containing the cge cluster, which is controlled by the sporulation regulatory protein GerE, was determined. Fifty-four putative ORFs with putative ribosome-binding sites were recognized. Seven of them correspond to previously characterized genes:(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the effect of FK506 in transcriptional activation of nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like2 (Nrf2) in human Jurkat T cells. METHODS FK506 treatment increased the generation of reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species in Jurkat cells in a dose-dependent manner. Generation of nitric oxide was also increased after(More)
