  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.5.525
The analgesic mechanism of opioids is known to decrease the excitability of substantia gelatinosa (SG) neurons receiving the synaptic inputs from primary nociceptive afferent fiber by increasing inwardly rectifying K⁺...
Molecular association of CD98, CD29, and CD147 critically mediates monocytic U937 cell adhesion

Kim MY, Cho JY

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 Sep;20(5):515-523.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.5.515
Adhesion events of monocytes represent an important step in inflammatory responses induced by chemokines. The β1-integrin CD29 is a major adhesion molecule regulating leukocyte migration and extravasation. Although several adhesion...
Spatial reproducibility of complex fractionated atrial electrogram depending on the direction and configuration of bipolar electrodes: an in-silico modeling study

Song JS, Lee YS, Hwang M, Lee JK, Li C, Joung B, Lee MH, Shim EB, Pak HN

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 Sep;20(5):507-514.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.5.507
Although 3D-complex fractionated atrial electrogram (CFAE) mapping is useful in radiofrequency catheter ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), the directions and configuration of the bipolar electrodes may affect the electrogram....
Seasonal acclimation in sudomotor function evaluated by QSART in healthy humans

Shin YO, Lee JB, Kim JH

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 Sep;20(5):499-505.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.5.499
The quantitative sudomotor axon reflex testing (QSART) is a classic test of routine postganglionic sudomotor function. We investigated sudomotor function by QSART after summer (July 2012) and winter (January 2013)...
p53 signaling is involved in leptin-induced growth of hepatic and breast cancer cells

Shrestha M, Park PH

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2016 Sep;20(5):487-498.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2016.20.5.487
Leptin, an adipokine predominantly produced from adipose tissue, is well known to induce tumor growth. However, underlying molecular mechanisms are not established yet. While p53 has long been well recognized...
