The role of nitric oxide in the cardiopulmonary response to hypoxia in highland and lowland newborn llamas
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2018)
© 2018 The Physiological Society. Key points: Perinatal hypoxia causes pulmonary hypertension in neonates, including humans. However, in species adapted to hypoxia, such as the llama, there is protection against pulmonary ...
Role of nitric oxide and bcl-2 family genes in the regulation of human endometrial apoptosis
Objective: To investigate the role of nitric oxide (NO) and death regulatory genes, bcl-2 and bax, in human endometria apoptosis.Design: Expression of bcl-2, bax, NO synthases (NOS), and the apoptotic effect of L-arginine ...
Redox regulation of thyroid hormone-induced Kupffer cell-dependent IκB-α phosphorylation in relation to inducible nitric oxide synthase expression
Thyroid hormone-induced calorigenesis promotes oxidative stress in the liver with higher respiratory burst activity in Kupffer cells, which could increase the expression of redox-sensitive genes. Our aim was to test the ...
Extracellular alkalinization induces endothelium-derived nitric oxide dependent relaxation in rat thoracic aorta
(ACADEMIC PRESS INC ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2010)
Aim: To investigate the mechanism through which the extracellular alkalinization promotes relaxation in rat thoracic aorta. Methods: The relaxation response to NaOH-induced extracellular alkalinization (7.4-8.5) was measured ...
Involvement of the l-arginine-nitric oxide pathway in the antinociception caused by fruits of Prosopis strombulifera (Lam.) Benth.
(Elsevier Ireland, 2012-01)
Ethnopharmacological relevance Prosopis strombulifera (Lam.) Benth. is a rhizomatous shrub that grows in the north and central zone of Argentina. In folk medicine, the fruits of this plant have been used as an astringent, ...
Upregulation of liver inducible nitric oxide synthase following thyroid hormone preconditioning: Suppression by N-acetylcysteine
3,3,5-L-Triiodothyronine (T 3) exerts significant protection against ischemia-reperfusion (IR) liver injury in rats. Considering that the underlying mechanisms are unknown, the aim of this study was to assess the involvement ...
Macrophages derived from septic mice modulate nitric oxide synthase and angiogenic mediators in the heart
Macrophages (Mps) can exert the defense against invading pathogens. During sepsis, bacterial lipopolisaccharide (LPS) activates the production of inflammatory mediators by Mps. Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) derived-nitric ...
S-nitrosoglutathione incorporated in poly(ethylene glycol) matrix: potential use for topical nitric oxide delivery
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier ScienceSan DiegoEUA, 2004)
Lack of nitric oxide-mediated regulation of amylase secretion stimulated by VIP in parotid glands of NOD mice
(Elsevier Science, 2004-12)
The non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse is chosen among other experimental models to study autoimmune sialadenitis resembling Sjögren's syndrome (SS), because of its unique characteristic of developing salivary dysfunction. ...
