    Background As a result of its very low water solubility, propofol is generally presented as a lipid-based formulation with well-characterized limitations. Methods Propofol (99.7%) was added directly to an aqueous solution of poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone)-block-poly(d,l-lactide)copolymers...

  • Analysis of mitochondrial DNA somatic mutations in OXYS and Wistar strain rats. Rotskaya, U. N.; Rogozin, I. B.; Vasyunina, E. A.; Kolosova, N. G.; Malyarchuk, B. A.; Nevinsky, G. A.; Sinitsyna, O. I. // Biochemistry (00062979);Apr2009, Vol. 74 Issue 4, p430 

    Rats of the OXYS strain are sensitive to oxidative stress and serve as a biological model of premature aging. We have compared spectra of somatic mutations in a control region of mtDNA from the liver of the OXYS rat strain and of Wistar rats as a control. The majority of nucleotide substitutions...

    Is the nitric oxide system involved in genetic hypertension in Dahl rats? To address this issue, a series of genetic tests were carried out. Linkage studies showed that the inducible nitric oxide synthase (Nos2 ) locus cosegregated with blood pressure in three F2 populations originated from...

    Purpose: General anesthetics are believed to induce amnesia. However, propofol can ameliorate cognitive deficits induced by electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a treatment for mental disorders. This study aimed at investigating the possible molecular mechanism as well as the effects of propofol on...

    The isolation of genes influencing long-term memory is critical for an understanding of learning at the molecular level. Recently, chromosomal substitution rat strains, known as consomics, have been developed. Here we report the results of the first study on aversive learning and memory with...

    Samples of inspirable air particulate (inhalable + ingestable) were obtained at two urban locations in southern Argentina which differ in their exposure to pollution by class B2 polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Sample extracts were tested in vitro for induction of chromosomal...

  • Comparison of mechanisms underlying changes in glucose utilization in fasted rats anesthetized with propofol or sevoflurane: Hyperinsulinemia is exaggerated by propofol with concomitant insulin resistance induced by an acute lipid load. Xiang Li; Kitamura, Takayuki; Kawamura, Gaku; Mori, Yoshiteru; Sato, Kanako; Araki, Yuko; Sato, Rui; Yamada, Yoshitsugu // BioScience Trends;Jun2014, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p155 

    The effects of anesthesia with sevoflurane and with propofol on glucose utilization in rats were investigated. Sevoflurane significantly impairs glucose utilization whereas propofol does not. Both insulin secretion and sensitivity affect glucose utilization. Propofol is hydrophobic, and...

    The article discusses iptakalim, a novel cardiovascular ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) potassium channel opener. It states that despite intense research, drugs able to ameliorate hypertension and at the same time protect against the associated heart diseases are still lacking. It notes on the promising...
