Rats showing an ataxic gait induced by 20 wk of treatment with 0, 30, or 60 mg/kg of difluorobenzhydrylpiperadine (DFBP), a detriazinyl metabolic of almitrine, were examined by light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Vacuolar degeneration associated with lamellar inclusions was observed in musculus soleus and m. interossei of the hindlimbs in(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) is synthesized from l-arginine by nitric oxide synthase (NOS), and nitrite and nitrate are believed to be waste forms of NO. We previously reported an enzyme-independent pathway of NO generation from nitrite in acidic conditions. In this study, we show nitrite-derived NO formation in renal ischemia-reperfusion injury using electron(More)
We established an experimental system that can induce p53-dependent apoptosis by doxycycline treatment to analyze characteristics of the apoptosis-resistant cancer cell subpopulation in the human breast cancer cell line HCC1937. Expression patterns of the stem cell markers, ALDH1A3 and Sox-2, the luminal differentiation marker, GATA3 and the proliferation(More)
Chronic stress has been reported to be an essential factor for depression. In this study, the effect of forced swimming stress on neurotransmitters and cellular signaling pathway contributing to brain functions was investigated using the forced swimming test (FST) in order to understanding of mechanisms to regulate stress signals in brain. Antidepressant(More)
