Lectin-binding patterns in the accessory olfactory bulb (AOB) of the golden hamster were investigated histochemically with 21 biotinylated lectins. The AOB was divided into rostral and caudal halves according to binding patterns of 16 lectins, WGA, s-WGA, LEL, STL, DSL, BSL-II, DBA, SBA, BSL-I, VVA, SJA, PNA, ECL, UEA-I, Con A and PSA. The caudal half of(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is a major risk factor for insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. Flavonoids are effective antioxidants that protect against these chronic diseases. In this study, we evaluated the effects of sudachitin, a polymethoxylated flavonoid found in the skin of the Citrus sudachi fruit, on glucose, lipid, and energy metabolism in mice(More)
Glomeruli within the main olfactory bulb (MOB) are known as areas of synapse formation between axon terminals of olfactory neurons in the olfactory epithelium and dendrites of the first relay neurons (mitral and tufted cells) in the MOB, so that they serve as functional units in olfaction. We examined expression patterns of glycoconjugates in the glomeruli(More)
