Thiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (A.T.C.) has been marketed in France since 1964 for the treatment of hepatic and biliary disorders. [Hepalidine (Riker Lab.): Packs of 20 tablets, each containing 100 mg. Thiobiline (Riker Lab.): Packs of 20 vials, each containing 100 mg.] As early as 1970, both the Paris and Marseilles Poison Control Centres had emphasized the toxicity of this drug which induces convulsions in children subject of overdosage [1]. Brugarolas and Gosalvez have recently suggested the… Expand
The effect of 2-substituted thiazolidine-4(R)-carboxylic acids on non-protein sulphydryl levels and sulphurtransferase activities in mouse liver and brain.
TLDR
2-Substituted thiazolidine-4(R)-carboxylic acids were found to increase the concentration of non-protein sulphydryls (NPSH) and the activity of rhodanese and 3-mercaptopyruvate sulphurtransferase in mouse liver, which suggest TDs are potentially hepatoprotective compounds. Expand
Thiazolidine derivatives as source of free L-cysteine in rat tissue.
TLDR
Two different mechanisms by which thiazolidine-4-(R)-carboxylic acids (TDs) which are the products of reactions of L-cysteine (cys) with carbonyl compounds can provide cys to the cells are demonstrated. Expand
Ingestion of thioproline suppresses rat esophageal adenocarcinogenesis caused by duodenogastroesophageal reflux.
TLDR
In conclustion, TPRO has an inhibitory effect on esophageal reflux-induced adenocarcinogenesis in rats in that it prevents the progression from CLE to AC. Expand
Identification of astrocytic factors that could play a role in myelination
TLDR
Despite similar stimulatory effects of CNTF on mixed neural cells on PLL and TnC, CNTF appears to affect them via different mechanisms showing that distinct reactive astrocytes could react to the same stimulus in different ways as also presented in in vivo studies. Expand

TLDR
Cysteine oxidase activity in adult rat brain was approximately 5 times higher than that measured at birth; thereafter, a steady increase occurred with adult levels being reached between the 25th and 50th days. Expand

A survey of the activity of compounds structurally related to both series of amino acids finds that one of them or a related substance may have excitatory transmitter function within the nervous system. Expand

TLDR
There is evidence (Curtis, 1962) that the equilibrium potential for the conductance change, induced in the membrane of spinal motoneurones by L-glutamic acid, differs from that associated with excitatory transmitter action. Expand
