Vascular function in rats with adenine-induced chronic renal failure.
These results indicate that severe renal failure for a duration of less than 10 weeks in this model primarily affects the aorta and mainly slows the rate of relaxation....
Glycerol uptake is by passive diffusion in the heart but by facilitated transport in RBCs at high glycerol levels in cold acclimated rainbow...
We propose this is related to cyclic changes in RBC glycerol content involving a loss of glycerol at the gill and a re-accumulation during passage through the liver....
Dietary supplementation with vitamin E and C attenuates dexamethasone-induced glucose intolerance in rats.
We hypothesized that feeding rats a diet supplemented with Vit E/C would improve glucose tolerance and restore insulin signalling in skeletal muscle, adipose and liver and prevent alterations in AMPK signalling in these tissues. Male Wistar rats received either a control or Vit E/C supplemented diet...
A metabolomics approach to elucidate effects of food deprivation in juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
The aim of this study was to evaluate if NMR-based metabolomics is a suitable method to generate an integrated view on metabolic processes during food deprivation in salmonid fish. Juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) weighing 43-115 g were either fed ad libitum or deprived o...
Potent cardiovascular effects of homologous urotensin II (UII)-related peptide and UII in unanesthetized eels after peripheral and central i...
We cloned cDNAs encoding urotensin II (UII)-related peptide (URP) and UII in Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica, the former being the first such cloning in teleost fishes. Unlike the exclusive expression of UII in the urophysis, the URP gene was expressed most abundantly in the brain (medulla oblongata...
Ventrolateral medulla mechanisms involved in cardiorespiratory responses to central chemoreceptor activation in rats.
We investigated the involvement of the retrotrapezoid nucleus (RTN) and glutamatergic mechanisms in the Botzinger/C1 region (Botz/C1) in these responses. Splanchnic sympathetic nerve discharge (sSND) and phrenic nerve discharge (PND) were recorded in urethane anaesthetized, sino-aortic denervated, v...
Transcriptional responses to thermal acclimation in the eurythermal fish Gillichthys mirabilis (Cooper 1864).
We examined transcriptional profiles in gill tissue of a highly eurythermal goby fish, Gillichthys mirabilis, following 4 wk of acclimation to 9 degrees C, 19 degrees C, or 28 degrees C. Overall, gill transcriptomes were not strikingly different among acclimation groups. Of the 1,607 unique annotate...
Dietary genistein and equol (4', 7 isoflavandiol) reduce oxidative stress and protect rats against focal cerebral ischemia.
High soy diets reduce injury in rat models of focal cerebral ischemia and are proposed as alternatives to hormone replacement therapy for postmenopausal women. The present study tests the hypothesis that the major soy isoflavone genistein and the daidzein metabolite equol are neuroprotective in tran...
Gas embolization of the liver in a rat model of rapid decompression.
Occurrence of liver gas embolism after rapid decompression was assessed in 31 female rats that were decompressed in 12 min after 42 min of compression at 7 ATA (protocol A). Sixteen rats died after decompression (group I). Of the surviving rats, seven were killed at 3 h (group II), and eight at 24 h...
Point: a call for proper usage of "gender" and "sex" in biomedical publications.
