Beauvericin, a cyclic peptide, inhibits inflammatory responses in macrophages by inhibiting the NF-κB pathway

Yoo S, Kim MY, Cho JY

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2017 Jul;21(4):449-456.

  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2017.21.4.429
The aim of this study was to evaluate the relaxant and anti-inflammatory effects of two thalidomide analogs as phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4) inhibitors in pregnant rat uterus. Uteri from Wistar female rats...
Reduction of long-term potentiation at Schaffer collateral-CA1 synapses in the rat hippocampus at the acute stage of vestibular compensation

Lee GW, Kim JH, Kim MS

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2017 Jul;21(4):423-428.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2017.21.4.423
Vestibular compensation is a recovery process from vestibular symptoms over time after unilateral loss of peripheral vestibular end organs. The aim of the present study was to observe time-dependent changes...
Escitalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, inhibits voltage-dependent K⁻ channels in coronary arterial smooth muscle cells

Kim HS, Li H, Kim HW, Shin SE, Seo MS, An JR, Ha KS, Han ET, Hong SH, Choi IW, Choi G, Lee DS, Park WS

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2017 Jul;21(4):415-421.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2017.21.4.415
We investigated the inhibitory effect of escitalopram, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), on voltage-dependent K⁺ (Kv) channels in freshly separated from rabbit coronary arterial smooth muscle cells. The application...
Participation of COX-1 and COX-2 in the contractile effect of phenylephrine in prepubescent and old rats

Guevara-Balcazar G, Ramirez-Sanchez I, Mera-Jimenez E, Rubio-Gayosso I, Aguilar-Najera ME, Castillo-Hernandez MC

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2017 Jul;21(4):407-413.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2017.21.4.407
Vascular reactivity can be influenced by the vascular region, animal age, and pathologies present. Prostaglandins (produced by COX-1 and COX-2) play an important role in the contractile response to phenylephrine...
MDL-12330A potentiates TRAIL-induced apoptosis in gastric cancer cells through CHOP-mediated DR5 upregulation

Lim SC, Han SI

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2017 Jul;21(4):397-405.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2017.21.4.397
MDL-12330A is a widely used adenylyl cyclase (AC) inhibitor that blocks AC/cAMP signaling. In this study, we demonstrated a novel antitumor activity of this drug in gastric carcinoma (GC) cell...
Elucidation of the profound antagonism of contractile action of phenylephrine in rat aorta effected by an atypical sympathomimetic decongestant

Rizvić E, Janković , Savić MM

  • Korean J Physiol Pharmacol.
  • 2017 Jul;21(4):385-395.
  • doi: 10.4196/kjpp.2017.21.4.385
Vasoconstrictive properties of sympathomimetic drugs are the basis of their widespread use as decongestants and possible source of adverse responses. Insufficiently substantiated practice of combining decongestants in some marketed preparations,...
Protein kinase C beta II upregulates intercellular adhesion molecule-1 via mitochondrial activation in cultured endothelial cells
