The use of mental images produced by the imagination as a form of psychotherapy. It can be classified by the modality of its content: visual, verbal, auditory, olfactory, tactile, gustatory, or kinesthetic. Common themes derive from nature imagery (e.g., forests and mountains), water imagery (e.g., brooks and oceans), travel imagery, etc. Imagery is used in the treatment of mental disorders and in helping patients cope with other diseases. Imagery often forms a part of HYPNOSIS, of AUTOGENIC TRAINING, of RELAXATION TECHNIQUES, and of BEHAVIOR THERAPY. (From Encyclopedia of Human Behavior, vol. 4, pp29-30, 1994)

Preservation of postural control of transient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxations in patients with reflux oesophagitis. (1/2533)

INTRODUCTION: In normal subjects, transient lower oesophageal sphincter relaxations (TLOSRs) and gas reflux during belching are suppressed in the supine position. Supine reflux, however, is a feature of reflux disease. AIMS: To investigate whether postural suppression of TLOSRs and gas reflux is impaired in patients with reflux disease. PATIENTS: Ten patients with erosive oesophagitis. METHODS: Oesophageal manometry was performed during gastric distension with 750 ml carbon dioxide. Measurements were made for 10 minutes before and after distension in both sitting and supine positions. RESULTS: In the sitting position gastric distension substantially increased the rate of gas reflux (median (interquartile range)), as evidenced by increases in oesophageal common cavities from 1 (0-1)/10 min to 7 (5-10)/10 min and TLOSRs from 1 (1-1.5)/10 min to 6 (2.5-8)/10 min. However, this effect was suppressed in the supine position in all but one patient (TLOSRs 0 (0)/10 min to 1 (0-4.5)/10 min, common cavities 0 (0)/10 min to 0.5 (0-2)/10 min). CONCLUSIONS: Postural suppression of TLOSRs and gas reflux is generally preserved in reflux disease.  (+info)

Comparison of functional antagonism between isoproterenol and M2 muscarinic receptors in guinea pig ileum and trachea. (2/2533)

The ability of the M2 muscarinic receptor to mediate an inhibition of the relaxant effects of forskolin and isoproterenol was investigated in guinea pig ileum and trachea. In some experiments, trachea was first treated with 4-diphenylacetoxy-N-methylpiperidine (4-DAMP) mustard to inactivate M3 receptors. The contractile response to oxotremorine-M was measured subsequently in the presence of both histamine (10 microM) and isoproterenol (10 nM). Under these conditions, [[2-[(diethylamino)methyl]-1-piperidinyl]acetyl]-5, 11-dihydro-6H-pyrido[2,3b]-[1,4]benzodiazepine-6-one (AF-DX 116) antagonized the contractile response to oxotremorine-M in a manner consistent with an M3 mechanism. However, when the same experiment was repeated using forskolin (4 microM) instead of isoproterenol, the response to oxotremorine-M exhibited greater potency and was antagonized by AF-DX 116 in a manner consistent with an M2 mechanism. We also measured the effects of pertussis toxin treatment on the ability of isoproterenol to inhibit the contraction elicited by a single concentration of either histamine (0.3 microM) or oxotremorine-M (40 nM) in both the ileum and trachea. Pertussis toxin treatment had no significant effect on the potency of isoproterenol for inhibiting histamine-induced contractions in the ileum and trachea. In contrast, pertussis toxin treatment enhanced the relaxant potency of isoproterenol against oxotremorine-M-induced contractions in the ileum but not in the trachea. Also, pertussis toxin treatment enhanced the relaxant potency of forskolin against oxotremorine-M-induced contractions in the ileum and trachea. We investigated the relaxant potency of isoproterenol when very low, equi-effective (i.e., 20-34% of maximal response) concentrations of either histamine or oxotremorine-M were used to elicit contraction. Under these conditions, isoproterenol exhibited greater relaxant potency against histamine in the ileum but exhibited similar relaxant potencies against histamine and oxotremorine-M in the trachea. Following 4-DAMP mustard treatment, a low concentration of oxotremorine-M (10 nM) had no contractile effect in either the ileum or trachea. Nevertheless, in 4-DAMP mustard-treated tissue, oxotremorine-M (10 nM) reduced the relaxant potency of isoproterenol against histamine-induced contractions in the ileum, but not in the trachea. We conclude that in the trachea the M2 receptor mediates an inhibition of the relaxant effects of forskolin, but not isoproterenol, and the decreased relaxant potency of isoproterenol against contractions elicited by a muscarinic agonist relative to histamine is not due to activation of M2 receptors but rather to the greater contractile stimulus mediated by the M3 receptor compared with the H1 histamine receptor.  (+info)

The effect of thin filament activation on the attachment of weak binding cross-bridges: A two-dimensional x-ray diffraction study on single muscle fibers. (3/2533)

To study possible structural changes in weak cross-bridge attachment to actin upon activation of the thin filament, two-dimensional (2D) x-ray diffraction patterns of skinned fibers from rabbit psoas muscle were recorded at low and high calcium concentration in the presence of saturating concentrations of MgATPgammaS, a nucleotide analog for weak binding states. We also studied 2D x-ray diffraction patterns recorded under relaxing conditions at an ionic strength above and below 50 mM, because it had been proposed from solution studies that reducing ionic strength below 50 mM also induces activation of the thin filament. For this project a novel preparation had to be established that allows recording of 2D x-ray diffraction patterns from single muscle fibers instead of natural fiber bundles. This was required to minimize substrate depletion or product accumulation within the fibers. When the calcium concentration was raised, the diffraction patterns recorded with MgATPgammaS revealed small changes in meridional reflections and layer line intensities that could be attributed in part to the effects of calcium binding to the thin filament (increase in I380, decrease in first actin layer line intensity, increase in I59) and in part to small structural changes of weakly attached cross-bridges (e.g., increase in I143 and I72). Calcium-induced small-scale structural rearrangements of cross-bridges weakly attached to actin in the presence of MgATPgammaS are consistent with our previous observation of reduced rate constants for attachment and detachment of cross-bridges with MgATPgammaS at high calcium. Yet, no evidence was found that weakly attached cross-bridges change their mode of attachment toward a stereospecific conformation when the actin filament is activated by adding calcium. Similarly, reducing ionic strength to less than 50 mM does not induce a transition from nonstereospecific to stereospecific attachment.  (+info)

Intracellular EDTA mimics parvalbumin in the promotion of skeletal muscle relaxation. (4/2533)

Parvalbumin (PA) is an intracellular Ca2+-binding protein found in some muscle and nerves. Its ability to bind Ca2+ and facilitate skeletal muscle relaxation is limited by its Mg2+ off-rate. EDTA serves as an "artificial" PA in that it exhibited similar rate constants for Mg2+ (3 s-1) and Ca2+ (0.7 s-1) dissociation at 10 degrees C. When introduced into frog skeletal muscle, EDTA increased the relaxation rate by approximately 2.7-fold, and with increasing tetanus duration, EDTA lost its ability to contribute to relaxation (and Ca2+ sequestration) at its Mg2+ off-rate. Intracellular EDTA recovered its ability to contribute to muscle relaxation and Ca2+ sequestration at its Ca2+ off-rate. Like PA, EDTA's contribution to muscle relaxation and Ca2+ sequestration was more clearly observed when the SR Ca-ATPase was inhibited. Introduction of EDTA into rat soleus muscle, which has low [PA], increased the relaxation rate in a manner that was analogous to the way in which PA facilitates relaxation of frog skeletal muscle. Thus intracellular EDTA serves as an effective mimic of PA, and its use should aid in our understanding of PA's function in muscle and nerve.  (+info)

Inhibition of the ATP-dependent interaction of actin and myosin by the catalytic domain of the myosin light chain kinase of smooth muscle: possible involvement in smooth muscle relaxation. (5/2533)

Myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) phosphorylates the light chain of smooth muscle myosin enabling its interaction with actin. This interaction initiates smooth muscle contraction. MLCK has another role that is not attributable to its phosphorylating activity, i.e., it inhibits the ATP-dependent movement of actin filaments on a glass surface coated with phosphorylated myosin. To analyze the inhibitory effect of MLCK, the catalytic domain of MLCK was obtained with or without the regulatory sequence adjacent to the C-terminal of the domain, and the inhibitory effect of the domain was examined by the movement of actin filaments. All the domains work so as to inhibit actin filament movement whether or not the regulatory sequence is included. When the domain includes the regulatory sequence, calmodulin in the presence of calcium abolishes the inhibition. Since the phosphorylation reaction is not involved in regulating the movement by MLCK, and a catalytic fragment that shows no kinase activity also inhibits movement, the kinase activity is not related to inhibition. Higher concentrations of MLCK inhibit the binding of actin filaments to myosin-coated surfaces as well as their movement. We discuss the dual roles of the domain, the phosphorylation of myosin that allows myosin to cross-bridge with actin and a novel function that breaks cross-bridging.  (+info)

The cyclo-oxygenase-dependent regulation of rabbit vein contraction: evidence for a prostaglandin E2-mediated relaxation. (6/2533)

1. Arachidonic acid (0.01-1 microM) induced relaxation of precontracted rings of rabbit saphenous vein, which was counteracted by contraction at concentrations higher than 1 microM. Concentrations higher than 1 microM were required to induce dose-dependent contraction of vena cava and thoracic aorta from the same animals. 2. Pretreatment with a TP receptor antagonist (GR32191B or SQ29548, 3 microM) potentiated the relaxant effect in the saphenous vein, revealed a vasorelaxant component in the vena cava response and did not affect the response of the aorta. 3. Removal of the endothelium from the venous rings, caused a 10 fold rightward shift in the concentration-relaxation curves to arachidonic acid. Whether or not the endothelium was present, the arachidonic acid-induced relaxations were prevented by indomethacin (10 microM) pretreatment. 4. In the saphenous vein, PGE2 was respectively a 50 and 100 fold more potent relaxant prostaglandin than PGI2 and PGD2. Pretreatment with the EP4 receptor antagonist, AH23848B, shifted the concentration-relaxation curves of this tissue to arachidonic acid in a dose-dependent manner. 5. In the presence of 1 microM arachidonic acid, venous rings produced 8-10 fold more PGE2 than did aorta whereas 6keto-PGF1alpha and TXB2 productions remained comparable. 6. Intact rings of saphenous vein relaxed in response to A23187. Pretreatment with L-NAME (100 microM) or indomethacin (10 microM) reduced this response by 50% whereas concomitant pretreatment totally suppressed it. After endothelium removal, the remaining relaxing response to A23187 was prevented by indomethacin but not affected by L-NAME. 7. We conclude that stimulation of the cyclo-oxygenase pathway by arachidonic acid induced endothelium-dependent, PGE2/EP4 mediated relaxation of the rabbit saphenous vein. This process might participate in the A23187-induced relaxation of the saphenous vein and account for a relaxing component in the response of the vena cava to arachidonic acid. It was not observed in thoracic aorta because of the lack of a vasodilatory receptor and/or the poorer ability of this tissue than veins to produce PGE2.  (+info)

Enantioselective inhibition of the biotransformation and pharmacological actions of isoidide dinitrate by diphenyleneiodonium sulphate. (7/2533)

1. We have shown previously that the D- and L- enantiomers of isoidide dinitrate (D-IIDN and L-IIDN) exhibit a potency difference for relaxation and cyclic GMP accumulation in isolated rat aorta and that this is related to preferential biotransformation of the more potent enantiomer (D-IIDN). The objective of the current study was to examine the effect of the flavoprotein inhibitor, diphenyleneiodonium sulphate (DPI), on the enantioselectivity of IIDN action. 2. In isolated rat aortic strip preparations, exposure to 0.3 microM DPI resulted in a 3.6 fold increase in the EC50 value for D-IIDN-induced relaxation, but had no effect on L-IIDN-induced relaxation. 3. Incubation of aortic strips with 2 microM D- or L-IIDN for 5 min resulted in significantly more D-isoidide mononitrate formed (5.0 +/- 1.5 pmol mg protein(-1)) than L-isoidide mononitrate (2.1 +/- 0.7 pmol mg protein(-1)) and this difference was abolished by pretreatment of tissues with 0.3 microM DPI. DPI had no effect on glutathione S-transferase (GST) activity or GSH-dependent biotransformation of D- or L-IIDN in the 105,000 x g supernatant fraction of rat aorta. 4. Consistent with both the relaxation and biotransformation data, treatment of tissues with 0.3 microM DPI significantly inhibited D-IIDN-induced cyclic GMP accumulation, but had no effect on L-IIDN-induced cyclic GMP accumulation. 5. In the intact animal, 2 mg kg(-1) DPI significantly inhibited the pharmacokinetic and haemodynamic properties of D-IIDN, but had no effect L-IIDN. 6. These data suggest that the basis for the potency difference for relaxation by the two enantiomers is preferential biotransformation of D-IIDN to NO, by an enzyme that is inhibited by DPI. Given that DPI binds to and inhibits NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase, the data are consistent with a role for the cytochromes P450-NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase system in this enantioselective biotransformation process.  (+info)

Effect of acute and long-term treatment with 17-beta-estradiol on the vasomotor responses in the rat aorta. (8/2533)

1. This study sought to evaluate whether the effects of acute and long-term treatment with 17-beta-estradiol on the vasomotor responses in rat aortic rings are mediated through the same mechanism. 2. Ovariectomized rats were treated daily with either 17-beta-estradiol-3-benzoate (100 microg kg(-1)) or vehicle for 1 week. 3. The effect of long-term 17-beta-estradiol treatment on the responses to cumulative doses of phenylephrine, 5-HT, calcium, potassium and 17-beta-estradiol was determined in aortic rings. In the same rings, the effect of acute exposure to 17-beta-estradiol (5 and 10 microM) on the dose response curves for phenylephrine, 5-HT, calcium, potassium and acetylcholine were estimated. The measurements were made in rings with and without intact endothelium. The tone-related basal release of nitric oxide (NO) was measured in rings with intact endothelium. 4. Long-term 17-beta-estradiol treatment reduced the maximum developed contraction to all contracting agents studied. This effect was abolished in endothelium denuded vessels. Acute 17-beta-estradiol treatment also reduced maximal contraction. This effect, however, was independent of the endothelium. 5. Long-term 17-beta-estradiol treatment significantly increased the ability of the rings to dilate in response to acetylcholine whereas acute exposure to 17-beta-estradiol had no effect. The tone-related release of NO was significantly increased after long-term exposure to 17-beta-estradiol. 6. In conclusion, this study indicate that the acute and long-term effects of 17-beta-estradiol in the rat aorta are mediated through different mechanisms. The long-term effect is mediated through the endothelium most likely by increasing NO release. In contrast, the acute effect of 17-beta-estradiol seems to be through an effect on the vascular smooth muscle cells.  (+info)

Do you want to relax your skeletal muscles (muscle relaxation)? Magnetic therapy will help you. Find out why physicians recommend magnetic therapy for muscle relaxation.
Hypertension (HTN) and diabetes (DM) are comorbid conditions, each associated with inflammation. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is elevated in the serum of patients with DM and capable of robustly activating the immune system. Risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) is increased in both HTN and DM. Vascular relaxation is needed to regulate vascular tone and erectile function. Our previous studies showed that corpus cavernosum (CC) nitrergic relaxation to electrical field stimulation (EFS) was reduced after LPS exposure. It is not known whether LPS-induced inflammation plays a role in DM-associated ED. Our study aim was to examine vascular function of rat CC under high glucose conditions in the presence of LPS. We hypothesized that high glucose would exacerbate the LPS-induced decrease in EFS relaxation. Isolated rat CC strips incubated with control (5mM) or high glucose (HG, 25 mM) media with or without LPS (1 ug/mL) for 6 h. CC strips were mounted in a myograph and pre-contracted with phenylephrine (PE, ...

Canine retinal central arterial strips responded to acetylcholine with a relaxation that was endothelium-independent. Indomethacin and atropine abolished the relaxation at low doses (10(-7) to 10(-6) M) and moderately attenuated the response to high concentrations (10(-5) and 10(-4) M). The residual relaxation at 10(-5) and 10(-4) M in indomethacin-treated strips were abolished by NG-nitro-L-arginine, hexamethonium, oxyhemoglobin and methylene blue, and the NG-nitro-L-arginine-induced inhibition was reversed by L-arginine. Cerebral arterial strips with endothelium responded to acetylcholine with a transient relaxation followed by a contraction, whereas only a relaxation was induced when endothelium was denuded. The relaxations at low and high doses were modified by atropine, indomethacin, hexamethonium and NG-nitro-L-arginine quite similarly to those seen in retinal arteries. Histochemical study demonstrated the presence of perivascular nerves containing NADPH diaphorase in whole mount ...
Force relaxation and permanent deformation processes in erythrocyte membrane were investigated with two techniques: micropipette aspiration of a portion of a flaccid cell, and extension of a whole cell between two micropipettes. In both experiments, at surface extension ratios ,3:1, the extent of residual membrane deformation is negligible when the time of extension is less than several minutes. However, extensions maintained longer result in significant force relaxation and permanent deformation. The magnitude of the permanent deformation is proportional to the total time period of extension and the level of the applied force. Based on these observations, a nonlinear constitutive relation for surface deformation is postulated that serially couples a hyperelastic membrane component to a linear viscous process. In contrast with the viscous dissipation of energy as heat that occurs in rapid extension of a viscoelastic solid, or in plastic flow of a material above yield, the viscous process in this ...
One mechanism that could account for impairment of eNOS-mediated relaxation is decreased availability of NO to produce relaxation, due to scavenging of NO by O2−. Conditions that produce elevated O2− in blood vessels are associated with impaired eNOS-dependent relaxation (21,24,26, 37). For example, impaired endothelium-dependent relaxation in inflammation, atherosclerosis, and diabetes is improved by SOD (5,21,26). In the present study, restoration of endothelium-dependent relaxation by PEG-SOD provides strong evidence that the impairment during diabetes is mediated by O2− in arteries from IL-10−/− mice.. In addition to using PEG-SOD in studies of vasomotor function, we examined relative levels of O2− in the vessel wall using confocal microscopy and hydroethidine. We used this method previously to detect O2− in blood vessels (5,9,26). Findings with hydroethidine staining were consistent with effects of PEG-SOD on function and suggest that O2− levels are higher in blood vessels ...

Nitric oxide (NO) is a highly reactive molecule that rapidly diffuses and permeates cell membranes. In animals, NO is implicated in a number of diverse physiological processes, such as neurotransmission, vascular smooth muscle relaxation, and platelet inhibition. It may have beneficial effects, e.g., as a messenger in immune responses, but it is also potentially toxic when the antioxidant system is overwhelmed and reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI) accumulate. During the last few years, NO has been detected in several plant species, and an increasing number of reports on its function have implicated NO as an important effector in plant growth, development, and defense. The broad chemistry of NO involves an array of interrelated redox forms with different chemical reactivities and numerous potential biological targets in plants. NO signaling functions depend on its reactivity. ROI are key modulators of NO in triggering cell death, but the nature of the mechanisms by which this occurs in plants ...
Background:. Despite the development of significant pharmaceutical treatments, morbidity and mortality of chronic heart failure (CHF) patients remain high, patients� quality of life is poor, and their health care utilization is heavy. It is therefore important to find a cost effective non-pharmaceutical treatment to help CHF patients manage the disease. The relaxation response has been found to be effective in managing CHF-related conditions. With its favorable physiological changes, the relaxation response is likely to benefit CHF patients.. Objectives:. 1. To evaluate the effects of a 15-week relaxation response intervention program on improving functional capacity and health-related quality of life as compared with an ongoing 15-week educational program for cardiac disease management, and a control group of usual cardiac care; 2. To identify the costs of conducting the intervention and the cardiac care education and the costs associated with cardiac care services; and to compare cost among ...

Abstract: The kappa-distributed fully ionized plasma with collisional interaction is investigated. The Fokker-Planck equation with Rosenbluth potential is employed to describe such a physical system. The results show that the kappa distribution is not a stationary distribution unless the parameter kappa tends to infinity. The general expressions of collisional relaxation rate of multiple-component plasma with kappa distribution are derived and discussed in specific cases in details. For the purpose of visual illustration, we also give those results numerically in figures. All the results show that the parameter kappa plays a significant role in relaxation rate ...

It is rare that a method appears, disappears, and then re-appears again as is the case of tissue characterization based on relaxation time constants. Yet some years later these obsolete methods were dug out again, grants were given to answer questions which had been discarded 25 years earlier [10, 11]. New pulse sequences and algorithms were developed - researchers tried their luck again. Still, there is no easily explainable causality nor any evidence of a straight connection between these numbers and a distinct pathology. There is no unique signature of distinct malignancies or other pathologies in tissue relaxation times, be it in ex vivo or in vivo measurements. Many people believe that numbers (or, more fashionable, data) are the truth but they do not understand how the num-bers were acquired and what they stand for. Nature doesnt care about numbers. Believing in such postulations many years after they have been dismissed is a sign of scientific naiveté.. Whats wrong in relaxation time ...

HSP20 phosphorylation and airway smooth muscle relaxation Mariam Ba1, Cherie A Singer1, Manoj Tyagi2, Colleen Brophy3, Josh E Baker4, Christine Cremo4, Andrew Halayko5, William T Gerthoffer21Department of Pharmacology, University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno, NV, USA; 2Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of South Alabama, Mobile, AL, USA; 3Harrington Department of Biochemistry, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA; 4Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Nevada, Reno, NV, USA; 5Departments of Physiology and Internal Medicine, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, CanadaAbstract: HSP20 (HSPB6) is a small heat shock protein expressed in smooth muscles that is hypothesized to inhibit contraction when phosphorylated by cAMP-dependent protein kinase. To investigate this hypothesis in airway smooth muscle (ASM) we showed that HSP20 was constitutively expressed as well as being inducible in cultured hASM cells by treatment with 1 µM
Alterations in melatonin (MEL) blood levels are associated with several cardiovascular disorders, including hypertension, ischemic heart disease, and heart failure. We recently demonstrated that MEL, acting via MT2-receptors, impairs nitric oxide (NO)-induced relaxation in coronary arteries by inhibiting NO-induced increases in intracellular cGMP levels (JPET 336: 127, 2011). In vascular smooth muscle, PKG1 limits the physiological actions of NO/cGMP signaling by phosphorylating PDE5, thereby increasing PDE5 activity.. Hypothesis: We hypothesized that MEL impairs NO-induced relaxation of coronary arteries by stimulating PKG1-dependent phosphorylation of PDE5, resulting in attenuation of NO-activated BKCa function in coronary smooth muscle cells.. Methods and Results: MEL (10-9 - 10-7 M) inhibited relaxation to the NO-donors (10-10 - 10-4 M), diethylamine-NONOate and sodium nitroprusside (SNP) in isolated porcine coronary arteries (p,0.05; n=5-8), but had no effect on relaxation induced by ...
Although it is known that during endotoxemic shock the use of β-adrenergic agonists can improve organs blood flow independently of cardiac output increase, there is no study in the literature concerning the remodelling of the vascular β-adrenoceptors (β-AR), β1, β2 and β3. Male Sprague-Dawley rats received either 5 mg/kg of lipopolisaccharide (LPS) or the same volume of the vehicle (C) intravenously. Three hours later, the thoracic aorta rings were harvested to perform functional and mRNA expression studies. To take into account the failure of the vascular constriction in sepsis, aortic rings were preconstricted with an appropriate concentration of phenylephrine (α1-adrenergic agonist) in order to obtain 80% of the maximal contraction in both groups. Concentration-relaxation curves were then constructed with several β-AR agonists: isoproterenol (ISO), a non selective agonist; dobutamine (DOBU), salbutamol (SALBU) and SR 58611A (SR) respectively β1-, β2- and β3-AR agonists.

Body scan Starting with your head and working down to your arms and feet, notice how you feel in your body. Taking in your head and neck, simply notice if you feel tense, relaxed, calm or anxious. See how much you can spread any sensations of softness and relaxation to areas of your body that feel tense. Once your reach your feet, work back up your body. Breath focus Sitting comfortably, become aware of your breath, following the sensation of inhaling from your nose down to your abdomen and out again. As you follow your breath, notice your whole body and let tension go with each exhalation. Whenever you notice your mind wandering, come ...
The present study examined age-related changes in the vascular relaxation response to adenine nucleotides in hypertensive and normotensive rats. Aortic ring segments from normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), age 4-6, 9-10, and 13-14 weeks, were examined for relaxation to adenosine 5-triphosphate (ATP). The extent of ATP-induced relaxation in aortic ring segments with intact endothelium was unchanged with advancing age. Rubbed (endothelium-denuded) ring preparations at the age of 4-6 weeks showed a dose-dependent relaxation similar to that of the unrubbed rings. With advancing age, the ATP-induced relaxation in the rubbed rings decreased and was abolished. The relaxation response did not differ between the SHR and WKY animals at any age, whether the preparations were rubbed or unrubbed. The stable ATP analogue beta,r-methylene ATP induced a relaxation response similar to ATP in rubbed rings at 4-6 weeks of age. In addition, treatment with ...
Relaxation plays a crucial role in the spin dynamics of dynamic nuclear polarisation. We review here two different strategies that have recently been used to incorporate relaxation in models to predict the spin dynamics of solid effect dynamic nuclear polarisation. A detailed explanation is provided how the Lindblad-Kossakowski form of the master equation can be used to describe relaxation in a spin system. Fluctuations of the spin interactions with the environment as a cause of relaxation are discussed and it is demonstrated how the relaxation superoperator acting in Liouville space on the density operator can be derived in the Lindblad-Kossakowski form by averaging out non-secular terms in an appropriate interaction frame. Furthermore we provide a formalism for the derivation of the relaxation superoperator starting with a choice of a basis set in Hilbert space. We show that the differences in the prediction of the nuclear polarisation dynamics that are found for certain parameter choices ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Inhibitory effects of a fullerene derivative, dimalonic acid C60, on nitric oxide-induced relaxation of rabbit aorta.. AU - Satoh, M.. AU - Matsuo, K.. AU - Kiriya, H.. AU - Mashino, T.. AU - Nagano, T.. AU - Hirobe, M.. AU - Takayanagi, I.. PY - 1997/5/30. Y1 - 1997/5/30. N2 - Dimalonic acid C60 (10(-5) M), a new fullerene derivative, produced an augmentation of phenylephrine-induced tone and reduced both the acetylcholine-induced maximum relaxation and the amplitude of substance P (10(-8) M)-induced relaxation in endothelium-containing thoracic aorta of rabbit; the acetylcholine- and substance P-induced relaxation was restored in the presence of superoxide dismutase (250 U/ml). Dimalonic acid C60 (10(-5) M) did not influence the phenylephrine-induced contractile response in the absence of endothelium, but the acetylcholine-induced relaxation was eliminated by removal of the endothelium. Superoxide anion generation, using hypoxanthine (1 mM)/xanthine oxidase (16 mU/ml), reduced ...
© The Royal Society of Chemistry.The formation and relaxation kinetics of starch-particle complexes were investigated in this study. The combination of cationic nanoparticles in suspension and anionic starch in solution gave rise to aggregate formation which was studied by dynamic light scattering, revealing the initial adsorption of the starch molecules on the particle surface. By examining the stability ratio, W, it was found that even in the most destabilized state, i.e. at charge neutralization, the starch chains had induced steric stabilization to the system. At higher particle and starch concentrations relaxation of the aggregates could be seen, as monitored by a decrease in turbidity with time. This relaxation was evaluated by fitting the data to the Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts function. It was found that irrespective of the starch to particle charge ratio the relaxation time was similar. Moreover, a molecular weight dependence on the relaxation time was found, as well as a more pronounced initial

Endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF) is supposed to be identical to nitric oxide (NO). A characteristic of NO is its half-life of 6-50 seconds. We report here bioassay experiments suggesting the presence of a long-acting EDRF. An endothelium intact segment of the main bovine pulmonary artery (generator) and an endothelium deprived artery strip (detector) were seperately perfused with Krebs-Henseleit solution. The effluent of the generator was collected and permitted to stand in an open beaker at 37 °C for periods exceeding five minutes. Following this the collected effluent (CE) perfused the histamine precontracted detector, causing significant relaxation. The same degree of relaxation could be observed after storing CE for 80-120 minutes. After reaching steady state generator effluent (G) was directly superfused over the detector (time delay about two seconds) resulting in a more pronounced relaxation. Addition of pharmacological stimuli of EDRF mediated relaxation augmented, addition of ...
Figure 1: Relaxation of bovine pulmonary arteries under basal conditions. A: Representative tracing. Endothelium deprived artery strip (detector) was precontracted with 10-5 M histamine (HA). In the upper panel significant relaxation was induced by perfusing the detector with effluent of an endothelium intact pulmonary artery (generator) which was collected and stored prior to perfusion for five minutes (CE). Following direct superfusion (G), additional relaxation was induced. In control experiments (lower panel) only direct superfusion (G) was performed; W = wash. B: Average relaxation. Data shown as mean +/- SEM ...
In the vascular wall, endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) produces NO to regulate peripheral vascular resistance, tissue perfusion, and blood pressure. In resistance arteries, eNOS couples with α-globin and, through chemical reactions, modulates NO diffusion needed for vascular smooth muscle relaxation. While α-globin protein alone is known to be unstable, the mechanisms that enable α-globin protein expression remain elusive. Here, Lechauve et al. report that arterial endothelium expresses α hemoglobin-stabilizing protein, which acts as a critical chaperone protein for α-globin expression and vascular function.. ...

Voltage sensing domain (VSD) relaxation is a process involving a voltage-independent transition from the activated state into the relaxed state. This process has been shown to shift the voltage dependence for sensing charge movement (sensing current) in the voltage sensitive phosphatase (VSP) known as Ci-VSP and to slow down the deactivation of potassium currents in Shaker and Kv1.2. Given the effect of VSD relaxation on the dynamics of these voltage sensitive proteins, it is thought that the relaxed and the active states are comprised of different set of conformations. Thus, it is possible that these states are sensitive to different physiological parameters. Here, it is shown that VSD activation and relaxation in Ci-VSP display different sensitivity to external pH (pHEXT). Sensing currents of Ci-VSP recorded during activation slowed down as pHEXT was decreased. Noteworthy, the kinetic of deactivating sensing currents was less affected, suggesting that the initial activation of the VSD involved a pHEXT
Proton spin-lattice relaxation of the Zeeman reservoir in the laboratory and rotating frames and of the dipolar reservoir have been studied in ferroelectric colemanite. These studies indicate the presence of two relaxation mechanisms which can be related to motions of the water molecules. The first, referred to as the flip mode and identified with 180 degree flips of the water molecules about their H-O-H bisectrices, is characterized by a correlation time and U-shaped relaxation minimum expected for a normal thermally activated process. The second, referred to as the jump mode and associated with a structural configuration change, produces a cusp-shaped dip in the relaxation over a very small temperature range in the vicinity of the phase transition.

Your Recommended Daily Allowance for Relaxation Stress is the curse of living in modern times. Everyone suffers from stress. And the stress we suffer takes a heavy toll on our bodies, emotions and minds. Feeling stressed out, worn out by fatigue or just simply having a miserable day, the best thing to do is relax. Watching television may be a form of relaxation for some, but is not a recommended method by experts. When we watch TV we are bombarded with commercials, ads, sounds and images. So how do we achieve relaxation? If there are thousands of ways we can get stressed, one of them is not meeting deadlines, there are also many ways we can relax. In recent studies, experts have determined that heart disease is linked to anger and irritability is linked to mental stress. Too much stress brings about ischemia that can lead to or cause a heart attack. Relaxation takes on added importance in light of this matter. Managing your anger and attitude is significant to heart health, and relaxation can ...

Last night, Danny and I had our first date since before the surgeries. We loaded up the truck and went to the drive-in movie theater. It wasnt exactly a romantic movie, but The A Team was pretty nostalgic for both of us. Of course, in my opinion, any movie can be romantic when youre at a drive-in! In fact, Danny and I saw two shooting stars! I wont tell you what I wished for on the first shooting star, but the second one I wished that everyone I know, everyone that Ive ever met, would have a moment of complete relaxation. Hopefully, whether or not you knew it, you let out a big sigh of happiness. For the record, I dont believe that telling the wish ruins it. Maybe on birthday cake candles, since that only happens once a year, but regarding spontaneous wishes its fine to tell what youre hopping for. Just my opinion ...

1. The contraction and relaxation responses to the polyoxyethylated vehicles currently used for the intravenous and oral administration of cyclosporin A in allograft recipients were studied in isolated rat aorta. The results were compared with those obtained with commercially available cyclosporin A for intravenous administration.. 2. None of these compounds affected resting tension, noradrenaline-induced contraction or endothelium-independent relaxation produced by sodium nitroprusside or bumetanide. However, they all reversed the relaxation induced by acetylcholine, carbamylcholine or adenosine 5′-triphosphate, by a factor of approximately 66%.. 3. This reversal of relaxation was unaffected by indomethacin and did not require the presence of cyclosporin A in the vehicles, and was completely abolished by l-arginine (3 × 10−-5 mol/l).. 4. It is concluded that vehicles used for commercial preparations of cyclosporin A interfere with the synthesis of endothelium-derived relaxing factor at an ...

Relaxation dynamics in glycerol-water mixtures: I. Glycerol-rich mixtures. The true Johari-Goldstein [beta]-relaxation of monosaccharides
The sympathomimetic catecholamines produce effects that depend upon their relative specificity for alpha, beta 1 and beta 2 receptors.. Adrenaline: With both alpha and beta effects this will produce an augmentation in heart rate, systolic blood pressure and cardiac output. In addition it produces relaxation of bronchial smooth muscle. However these effects occur at the expense of increased myocardial oxygen demand and reduced perfusion of skin, kidneys and other organs. It is used for its inotropic effect at doses of 0.01-0.02 μg/kg/min titrated according to response.. Noradrenaline: This has predominantly alpha effects but also slight beta effects on the heart. It produces an increase in both systolic and diastolic pressure but its principle effect is to increase peripheral resistance. This is disadvantageous when peripheral resistance is normal as it then produces an increase in resistance and raises cardiac afterload. However it is useful when the peripheral resistance is inappropriately ...
Authors: Iyo, Toshiya , Sasaki, Naoki , Maki, Yasuyuki , Nakata, Mitsuo Article Type: Research Article Abstract: In 1993 we proposed an empirical formula for describing the relaxation modulus of cortical bone based on the results of stress relaxation experiments performed for 1×105 sec: \[E(t)=E_{0}\bigl\{A\exp \bigl[-(t/\tau_{1})^{\beta}\bigr]+(1-A)\exp (-t/\tau_{2})\bigr\},\quad (0,A,\ \beta ,1\ \mbox{and}\ \tau_{1}\ll\tau_{2}),\] where E0 is the initial value of the relaxation modulus, A is the portion of the first term, τ1 and τ2 are characteristic relaxation times, and β is a shape factor [Sasaki et al., J. Biomechanics 26 (1993), 1369]. Although the relaxation properties of bone under various external conditions were described well by the above equation, recent experimental …results have indicated some limitations in its application. In order to construct an empirical formula for the relaxation modulus of cortical bone that has a high degree of completeness, stress relaxation ...

Calcium copper titanate ceramics were fabricated by cold isostatic pressing at various calcination and sintering conditions. Depending on fabrication condition, three electrical responses were observed in the combined modulus and impedance plots, indicating the presence of two Maxwell-Wagner relaxations. These electrical responses show different response to temperature and applied field. The activation energies, as well as the driving force factors, were calculated for these relations. The determined activation energy values are in the range of 0.57 to 0.65 eV. The contribution of Maxwell-Wagner relaxations to the high permittivity of CCTO and related materials is briefly discussed.
You awake extra refreshed, with further energy and Your system is allowed to recover more thoroughly. In addition, becoming perfectly-rested is noted to foster increased focus, as well. Chatting calls for your brain to remain Energetic, which can inhibit your relaxation reaction. Instead, seek to target your respiratory or starting to be extra meditative. As an alternative to heading straight into some more energetic action, try and program your relaxation massage when you have practically nothing intense to perform afterward. When you can nap right after your massage, much the better. A massage will frequently encourage the discharge of a lot of toxins in Your system, which is extremely advantageous.

A sensor system, device, and methods for determining the concentration of an analyte in a sample is described. Gated amperometric pulse sequences including multiple duty cycles of sequential excitations and relaxations may provide a shorter analysis time and/or improve the accuracy and/or precision of the analysis. The disclosed gated amperometric pulse sequences may reduce analysis errors arising from the hematocrit effect, variance in cap-gap volumes, non-steady-state conditions, mediator background, under-fill, temperature changes in the sample, and a single set of calibration constants.
In equation (7) the parameters of each attribute are the same for all alternatives, although each alternative can have a different brand weight, which represents a contrast with the base brand. Difference designs permit one to relax the assumption that attribute parameters are the same across brands by specifying alternative-specific parameters for one or more of the brands of interest. However, this relaxation may create analytic problems, as we indicate later. Difference designs also permit mixed model specifications in which some vectors of attribute differences have common or generic parameters, while other parameters defined on absolute attribute level vectors may be alternative-specific.. Only attribute differences are orthogonal in difference designs; thus, the absolute levels of attribute values can be highly correlated. This can be a problem if one estimates alternative specific effects for two or more attributes common to all brands because correlations among absolute attribute ...

Electronic and structural properties of the (100) surfaces and bulk of MgO, CaO, SrO, and BaO have been studied using the projector augmented wave (PAW) method within the local density approximation and generalized gradient approximation. Relaxed (100) MgO shows the positive rumpling of 2.2% whereas (100) CaO, (100) SrO, and (100) BaO exhibit increasingly negative rumpling and surface contraction. (100) CaO is a border case between the two trends and the sign of the rumpling of this surface can be changed at distortion. We find that the surface structures obtained as a result of relaxation are largely determined by an increasing interaction between the cation semicore states and oxygen p states observed in the oxide series.. ...
