Distribution Analysis via Mass Spectrometry Imaging of Ephedrine in the Lungs of Rats Orally Administered the Japanese Kampo Medicine Maoto

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5341069
PMID: 28272490
DOI: 10.1038/srep44098

[…] ed in the m/z 100 to 200 range by using a laser energy of 35 to 40 μJ. The laser irradiated each position 100 times with a 10- to 25-μm diameter and a 1-kHz repetition rate. The ion images of EPD and MEPD corresponded to the protonated molecular ions ([M + H]+) at m/z 166.12 and 180.13. The collision energy was optimized to obtain an intense pattern of fragment ions for EPD. The distributions of E […]


Hypothalamic Vasopressinergic Projections Innervate Central Amygdala GABAergic Neurons: Implications for Anxiety and Stress Coping

Front Neural Circuits
PMCID: 5122712
PMID: 27932956
DOI: 10.3389/fncir.2016.00092

[…] he traces in pixels. The real length is converted to millimetre taking into account the correspondence between pixels and a known scale value. AVPir+ fiber length from postero-dorsal medial amygdala (MePD) from coronal section (Bregma. −2.7 mm) was 3618 mm and was assigned as 100%. Fiber lengths falling in the range of 100%–76% were assigned as ++++; 75–51% as +++; 50–26%: as ++ and 25–1% +. […]


Sonic hedgehog expressing and responding cells generate neuronal diversity in the medial amygdala

PMCID: 2892491
PMID: 20507551
DOI: 10.1186/1749-8104-5-14

[…] nd infrared camera (all from Olympus). Cells were only chosen based on their YFP fluorescence and apparent viability (clear membrane, nucleus not visible) without bias in terms of location within the MePD or MePV, cell size or morphology. Patch electrodes had resistances between 3 and 6 MΩ when filled with the intracellular solution of the following composition (in mM): 130 K-gluconate, 10 NaCl, 2 […]


Rapid identification of PAX2/5/8 direct downstream targets in the otic vesicle by combinatorial use of bioinformatics tools

Genome Biol
PMCID: 2760872
PMID: 18828907
DOI: 10.1186/gb-2008-9-10-r145

[…] medaka orthologues corresponding to the candidate genes were obtained using EnsEMBL Biomart []. The corresponding clones to these genes were blasted (blastn, percentage of identity >95%) against the Medaka Expression Pattern Database [] and against an in-house library of medaka sequenced cDNA clones at the EMBL. In situ hybridization analysis of the 14 downstream targets selected was primarily pe […]
