The age-associated changes of the expression of IL-2 binding molecules p55/Tac(alpha chain) and p70/75(beta chain) were examined after phytohemagglutinin (PHA) stimulation. The expressions of both p55/Tac molecules and p70/75 molecules were significantly reduced in the aged compared with those in the young persons. The amounts of p55/Tac and p70/75(More)
Proliferative responses to the costimulation with phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate (PMA) and suboptimal doses of ionomycin in the purified T and B cells from old mice were lower than those from young mice. The degree of the age-related decline was more significant in T cells than in B cells. Taurine, a sulfur containing amino acid, augmented the(More)
Proliferative responses of highly purified T and B cells from aged persons to the combined stimulation with ionomycin and PMA were more significantly reduced than that from young ones although the degree of the age-related reduction was more significant in T cells than in B cells. In B cells, the levels and kinetics of c-myc gene expression after the(More)
The concentration level of extracellular L-glutamate released from region CA3 of mouse hippocampal slices under tetraethylammonium (TEA) chloride and KCl stimulation was measured with independent methods, i.e., a capillary-based enzyme sensor, a patch sensor, and an enzyme-based imaging method. The L-glutamate level was compared with those at regions CA1(More)
