In order to elucidate muscle functional changes by acute reloading, contractile and fatigue properties of the rat soleus muscle were investigated at three weeks of hindlimb suspension and the following 1 hr, 5 hr, 1 d, and 2 weeks of reloading. Compared to age-matched controls, three weeks of unloading caused significant changes in myofibrillar alignments,(More)
Fumonisin B1, a specific inhibitor of ceramide synthase, and ISPI (Myriocin), a serine palmitoyltransferase inhibitor, modulate the de novo sphingolipid biosynthesis pathway. This study was conducted to determine whether serum deprivation-induced cell death is regulated by de novo sphingolipid biosynthesis in pig kidney LLC-PK1 cells. Serum withdrawal from(More)
Three novel polymerizable ether lipids, 1,2-O-bis[10(2',4'-hexadienoyloxy)decyl]-rac, 1,2-O-bis(10,12-tricosadiynyl)-rac, and (-)-2,3-O-bis(10,12-tricosadiynyl)-sn-glycero-1-phosphocholine, were synthesized from 3-O-benzyl-rac, 3-O-trityl-rac and (-)-1-O-trityl-sn-glycerol as starting materials, respectively. All the reactions employed in these multi-step(More)
