Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of the neurotrophin family, and ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), a member of the neurocytokine family, are known to have synergistic effects on motoneurons, but such synergistic effect has not been studied in detail especially in the brain. In the present study, we examined the synergistic effects of(More)
We have recently found an H+/quinidine antiport system in human kidney HEK 293 cells. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether the H+/quinidine antiport system is expressed in Madin–Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells. We investigated the uptake and efflux of quinidine in MDCK cells. The uptake of 100 µM quinidine into MDCK cells was decreased by(More)
Heart failure is accompanied with tissue (circulatory) hypoxia, and the metabolism of several drugs has been reported to be reduced in heart failure. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of another type of respiratory hypoxia, hypoxic hypoxia (FiO2 15 % for 24 h followed by FiO2 10 % for 9 days) on the metabolism of carvedilol enantiomers in(More)
