  57. ncbi Calpain induces proteolysis of neuronal cytoskeleton in ischemic gerbil forebrain
    Masayuki Yokota
    Department of Neurosurgery, School of Medicine, Tottori University, Tottori, Japan
    Brain Res 984:122-32. 2003
    ..The reason why neuronal death in CA1 evolved slowly was not clarified. In astrocytes, fodrin was not proteolyzed by m-calpain. The low Ca(2+)-sensitivity of m-calpain may be the reason of ischemic resistance in astrocytes...
  58. ncbi Re-evaluation of short latency somatosensory evoked potentials (P13, P14 and N18) for brainstem function in children who once suffered from deep coma
    Yutaka Tomita
    Department of Pathological Science and Technology, School of Health Science, Faculty of Medicine, Tottori University, Yonago 683 8503, Japan
    Brain Dev 25:352-6. 2003
    ..In conclusion, electrophysiological examinations, especially SSEP (P13, P14 and N18), might be very useful in obtaining a long-term neurological prognosis after deep coma in children...
  59. ncbi Smad expression of hepatic stellate cells in liver cirrhosis in vivo and hepatic stellate cell line in vitro
    Yukisato Kitamura
    Second Department of Pathology, School of Life Science, Faculty of Medicine, Tottori University, Yonago, Japan
    Pathol Int 53:18-26. 2003
    ..These observations suggest that the Smad expressions increase in the nucleus of the HSC in the cirrhotic liver and that the TGF-beta1 stimulation induces the Smad expression...
  60. ncbi Genetic analysis of vascular factors in Alzheimer's disease
    Yosuke Wakutani
    Department of Neurology, Institute of Neurological Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Tottori University, 36 1 Nishimachi, Yonago 683 8504, Japan
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 977:232-8. 2002
    ..In our study, we found a significant ethnic difference of the genotype distribution, but failed to replicate the positive association between the I allele and AD...
