Immunohistochemical and morphologic basis for glutamate signaling in the rat stomach.
Hachiōji, Japan. In Biol Pharm Bull, 2008
Physiologic studies conducted in rats have demonstrated that afferent fibers of the gastric branch of the vagus nerve increase their firing rate with the intragastric administration of the amino acid glutamate, and the increased firing rate is blocked by the depletion of serotonin (5-HT), administration of the blocker for the serotonin type-3 receptor (SR3), or nitric oxide synthase (NOS).
The incommensurate modulation of the 2212 bi-sr-ca-cu-o superconductor.
In Science, 1988
The incommensurate modulation evident in the diffraction pattern of the superconductor Bi(2)Sr3-xCa(x)Cu(2)O8+y consists of almost sinusoidally varying displacements of up to 0.4A of the Bi and Sr atoms in the a-and c-directions of the unit cell, and of up to 0.3 A of the Cu atoms in the c direction only.
