Our previous acute toxicity studies with Karwinskia humboldtiana (Kh) in rats showed renal hemodynamic changes with a marked increase in the fractional excretion of sodium and morphological damage. To analyse the effects of Kh or 'tullidora' on energetic metabolism, a single dose of an oral preparation from the seed fruits was given to Wistar rats (1.25 g/kg). In tullidora-treated rats there was 8% mortality. ATP concentrations in renal tissue decreased significantly (control: 53.85+/-3.34… Expand
Mitochondrial ATPase activity and membrane fluidity changes in rat liver in response to intoxication with Buckthorn (Karwinskia humboldtiana)
TLDR
Interestingly, the pH gradient driven by ATPase activity was significantly higher than controls despite an diminution of the hydrolytic activity of ATPase. Expand
Toxicological and pharmacological evaluation of Discaria americana Gillies & Hook (Rhamnaceae) in mice
TLDR
The present study evaluated the acute and subacute toxicity as well as the anxiolytic and antinociceptive effects of D. americana root bark and aerial parts extracts in mice to validate these plants as safe and effective medicinal products. Expand
An experimental model of peripheral neuropathy induced in rats by Karwinskia humboldtiana (buckthorn) fruit
TLDR
This experimental model of peripheral neuropathy induced by Karwinskia humboldtiana (buckthorn) fruit is reproducible and easy to handle and allows us to study reversible peripheral nerve damage. Expand
Toxicity and Anticancer Potential of Karwinskia: A Review
TLDR
The evidence obtained so far indicates that PA1 could be an effective anticancer agent in Karwinskia plants, and inhibition of topoisomerase II has been suggested to play a role in the effect of PA1 on malignant cells. Expand
Medicinal Plants from North and Central America and the Caribbean Considered Toxic for Humans: The Other Side of the Coin
TLDR
There is limited information about the toxicity of medicinal plants used in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean and the principle of the plant responsible for the toxicity is unknown. Expand
Intoxicación Crónica con el Fruto Maduro de Karwinskia humboldtiana en Ratas Wistar: Daño Renal
TLDR
Evaluar la morfologia renal en un modelo de intoxicacion cronica con Kh demuestra que la intoxicacia cronica with Kh es una intoxicaci sistemica y no exclusiva del SNC y SNP. Expand
Purinergic signalling in the kidney in health and disease
TLDR
Reports about purine- and pyrimidine-mediated actions in diseases of the kidney, including polycystic kidney disease, nephritis, diabetes, hypertension and nephrotoxicant injury are covered and possible purinergic therapeutic strategies discussed. Expand
Fluid flow induced calcium response in osteoblasts: mathematical modeling.
TLDR
A mathematical model is developed to describe [Ca(2+)](i) response induced by fluid shear stress (SS) by integrating the major factors involved and analyzed the effects of different experimental setups, which may improve the experimental design and facilitate the understanding of the mechanotransduction process in osteoblasts.

Renal failure during acute toxicity produced by tullidora ingestion (Karwinskia humboldtiana).
TLDR
Haemodynamic changes were observed with decrements of the glomerular filTration rate, renal plasma flow and filtration fraction during acute intoxication, and cloudy swelling and hydropic degeneration was seen 72 hr after intoxication. Expand
Production of reactive oxygen species by toxin T-514 of genus Karwinskia in vitro.
TLDR
Catalase and superoxide dismutase had a protective effect against the cytotoxicity of T-514 in hepatocytes and also inhibited the production of oxygen reactive species in microsomes. Expand
Quantitative Changes in Myelin Proteins in a Peripheral Neuropathy Caused by Tullidora (Karwinskia humboldtiana)
TLDR
It is tentatively concluded that the active principles of Tullidora may enter the axons through the motor nerve terminals, and the distal segments of the motor nerves would then be preferentially affected and demyelination could result from axonal damage. Expand
Alterations of red-cell glycolytic intermediates and oxygen transport as a consequence of hypophosphatemia in patients receiving intravenous hyperalimentation.
TLDR
These findings suggest that in vivo red-cell glucose metabolism is significantly hypophosphatemic, and that total intravenous hyperalimentation with solutions lacking added inorganic phosphate is a viable treatment option for this condition. Expand
A possible molecular basis of natriuresis during ischemic-reperfusion injury in the kidney.
TLDR
Sharp reductions in expression of the NHE-3 Na/H exchanger and the apical Na-K-2Cl cotransporter are major factors in the natriuresis/diuresis that is one of the hallmarks of ischemic acute renal failure. Expand
Effect of organic and inorganic phosphates on the oxygen equilibrium of human erythrocytes.
TLDR
The oxygen affinity of hemoglobin is decreased in the presence of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate over a wide pH range, and at high concentrations of phosphate buffer, diphosphglycerate has practically no effect on the log p1 2 and n values. Expand
A neuropathy in goats caused by experimental coyotiool (Karwinskia humboldtiana) poisoning. II. Lesions in the peripheral nervous system--teased fiber and acid phosphatase studies.
TLDR
The sequence of development of the lesions suggests that axonal degeneration were secondary to Schwann-cell injury, and these histologic studies indicate that the primary lesion occurred in Schwann cells and resulted in swelling of SchwANN cells, clefts in the myelin sheath, and segmental demyclination.

Distribution of (Na+-K+)-stimulated ATPase activity in rat intestinal mucosa.
TLDR
The final (Na+-K+)-stimulated ATPase membrane is relatively free of brush border, mitochondria, nuclear and microsomal contamination and would appear to be plasma membrane, and is discussed in relation to active transport in the intestine. Expand
DNA topoisomerase II inhibition by peroxisomicine A(1) and its radical metabolite induces apoptotic cell death of HL-60 and HL-60/MX2 human leukemia cells.
TLDR
Results suggest that topoisomerase II inhibition plays a role in the cytotoxicity of the plant toxin peroxisomicine and the dihydroxyanthracenone unit may represent a useful chemotype for the preparation of topoisomersase II-targeted anticancer agents. Expand
Effects of toxin T-544 from the Karwinskia humboldtiana (buckthorn) plant upon mouse embryos explanted at 11 days.
TLDR
Embryo protein content was significantly lower in those embryos exposed to 0.1 microgram/ml of T-544 compared with control group and there was a significant difference in malformations in those babies exposed to0.05 and 0.2 microgram /ml of toxin. Expand
