    Subepithelial fibroblasts of the intestinal villi, which form a contractile cellular network beneath the epithelium, are in close contact with epithelial cells, nerve varicosities, capillaries, smooth muscles and immune cells, and secrete extracellular matrix molecules, growth factors and...

Travis; Jackson, Mark C.; Cumpston, Amy; Frazer, David G.; Dey, Richard D. // Toxicologic Pathology;Apr2014, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p582 

    Inhalation of diacetyl, a butter flavoring, causes airway responses potentially mediated by sensory nerves. This study examines diacetyl-induced changes in sensory nerves of tracheal epithelium. Rats (n = 6/group) inhaled 0-, 25-, 249-, or 346-ppm diacetyl for 6 hr. Tracheas and vagal ganglia...

    The regional distribution of endocrine cells was studied in the gastrointestinal tract of the freshwater turtle, Mauremys caspica caspica, by immunohistochemistry using antisera against serotonin, somatostatin, gastrin, insulin, substance P, glucagon and calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP)....

    Subepithelial fibroblasts form a cellular network with gap junctions under the epithelium of the gastrointestinal tract. Previously, we have reported their unique characteristics, such as reversible rapid cell-shape changes from a flat to a stellate configuration induced by dBcAMP and...

    OBJECTIVES: The development of reflux esophagitis in humans is a process resulting from esophageal exposure to refluxed gastric contents. There is no doubt that damage to the esophageal epithelium requires exposure to gastric acid; however, the role of refluxed pepsin as contributor to this...

    We observed immunostaining for vitamin D binding protein (DBP) in rat hypothalamus. Part of the supraoptic and of the paraventricular neurons showed DBP immunoreactivity, in part colocalized with Arg-vasopressin. DBP was also observed in widespread axonal projections throughout the lateral...

    The morphological characteristics of P2X3-immunoreactive nerve endings in the laryngeal mucosa were herein examined using immunohistochemistry with confocal laser microscopy. Ramified intraepithelial nerve endings immunoreactive to P2X3 were distributed in the epiglottis and arytenoid region....

    Introduction: Previous studies have suggested that cerebrospinal fluid from patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) leads to pronounced vasoconstriction in isolated arteries. We hypothesized that only cerebrospinal fluid from SAH patients with vasospasm would produce an enhanced contractile...

    Objective: We developed an in situ regeneration-inducible artificial trachea composed of a porcine collagen sponge and polypropylene framework and used it for tracheal reconstruction. In the present study, collagen sponges with different structures were prepared from various concentrations of...

  • Intrarenal distribution of rabbit PKC zeta. Chuan-Ming Hao; Breyer, Richard M.; Davis, Linda S.; Breyer, Matthew D. // Kidney International;Jun1997, Vol. 51 Issue 6, p1831 

    To elucidate roles of protein kinase C (PKC) ζ in rabbit kidney, PKC ζ was cloned from a rabbit kidney cortex cDNA library. Sequencing revealed a 2113 nt insert with an open reading frame encoding a protein of 591 amino acids. The predicted amino acid sequence is 93.7% identical with rat...
