  • Cooling is a potent vasodilator of deep vessels in the rat. Mustafa, Seham MD; Thulesius, Olav // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Nov2001, Vol. 79 Issue 11, p899 

    The objectives of this study were to determine the effect of cooling on smooth muscle tone of the pulmonary artery and aorta and to clarify the basic mechanism of these responses. We recorded isometric tension in smooth muscle strips of rat pulmonary artery and aorta in organ baths during...

    Animal studies have demonstrated the ability of both sodium-hydrogen exchange inhibitors and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors to reduce infarct size and preserve postischemic ventricular function following ischemia and reperfusion (IR) injury. Whether these interventions can also prevent...

  • The effect of acute fish-oil supplementation on endothelial function and arterial stiffness following a high-fat meal. Fahs, Christopher A.; Yan, Huimin; Ranadive, Sushant; Rossow, Lindy M.; Agiovlasitis, Stamatis; Wilund, Kenneth R.; Fernhall, Bo // Applied Physiology, Nutrition & Metabolism;Jun2010, Vol. 35 Issue 3, p294 

    This study examined whether a commercially available fish-oil supplement offers protection from the acute effects of a high-fat meal (HFM) on endothelial function and arterial stiffness. An HFM causes acute impairments in endothelial function, whereas the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic...

  • Acute effects of endothelin receptor antagonists on hepatic hemodynamics of cirrhotic and noncirrhotic rats. Cavasin, Maria A.; Semus, Hillary; Pitts, Kelly; Peng, Yanyu; Sandoval, Jennifer; Chapo, Joseph; Plato, Craig F. // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Jun2010, Vol. 88 Issue 6, p636 

    Hepatic and circulating endothelin-1 (ET-1) are increased in patients with cirrhosis and in cirrhotic animals. However, the distinct roles of ET receptor subtypes ETA and ETB in cirrhosis and portal hypertension (PHT) have not been clearly elucidated. Thus, we studied the effects of selective...

  • ET-1 plasma levels and ocular blood flow in retinitis pigmentosa. Cellini, Mauro; Strobbe, Ernesto; Gizzi, Corrado; Campos, Emilio C. // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Jun2010, Vol. 88 Issue 6, p630 

    Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited retinal disorder clinically characterized by a pale, waxy optic nerve head, attenuated retinal blood vessels, and bone spicule pigment in the retina. Hemodynamic studies have demonstrated that RP is associated with a reduction in the retinal and...

  • Coarse woody debris in the old-growth forests of British Columbia. Feller, M C // Environmental Reviews;Sep2003 Supplement 1, Vol. 11, pS135 

    This paper synthesizes data extracted from the literature and data collected in various studies by the author on the quantity, characteristics, and functional importance of coarse woody debris (CWD) in the old-growth forests of British Columbia (B.C.). There is little agreement in the literature...

  • Acute regulation of hepatic lipase secretion by rat hepatocytes. Galan, Xavier; Peinado-Onsurbe, Julia; Robert, Monique Q; Soley, Maria; Llobera, Miquel; Ram�rez, Ignasi // Biochemistry & Cell Biology;Aug2002, Vol. 80 Issue 4, p467 

    Hepatic lipase is involved in cholesterol uptake by the liver. Although it is known that catecholamines are responsible for the daily variation of enzyme activity, the mechanisms involved are poorly understood. Rat hepatocytes incubated with adrenaline or other Ca[sup 2+] -mobilizing hormones...

  • Influence of small doses of various drug vehicles on acetaminophen-induced liver injury. Kelava, Tomislav; Ćavar, Ivan; Čulo, Filip // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Oct2010, Vol. 88 Issue 10, p960 

    The biological effects of drug vehicles are often overlooked, often leading to artifacts in acetaminophen-induced liver injury assessment. Therefore, we decided to investigate the effect of dimethylsulfoxide, dimethylformamide, propylene glycol, ethanol, and Tween 20 on acetaminophen-induced...

  • Intermediate filaments modulation in an in vitro model of the hepatic stellate cell activation or conversion into the lipocyte phenotype. Guma, Fatima C.R; Mello, Tanira G; Mermelstein, Claudia S; Fortuna, Vitor A; Wofchuk, Susana T; Gottfried, Carmem; Guaragna, Regina M; Costa, Manoel L; Borojevic, Radovan // Biochemistry & Cell Biology;Aug2001, Vol. 79 Issue 4, p409 

    Hepatic stellate cells are intralobular connective tissue cells expressing the myofibroblast or the lipocyte phenotypes. They participate in homeostasis of the liver extracellular matrix, repair, regeneration, and fibrosis under the former phenotype, and control the retinol metabolism, storage,...

  • Hemodynamic and histomorphometric characteristics of dilated cardiomyopathy of Syrian hamsters (Bio TO-2 strain). Goineau, Sonia; Pape, Danielle; Guillo, Pascal; Ram�e, Marie-Paule; Bellissant, Eric // Canadian Journal of Physiology & Pharmacology;Apr2001, Vol. 79 Issue 4, p329 

    The natural history of the disease of the dilated strain Bio TO-2 of cardiomyopathic hamsters (CMH) is not totally characterized. We investigated its hemodynamic and histomorphometric characteristics at 140, 180, 220, 260, and 300 days of age. Forty CMH and 40 controls were investigated (8 at...
