difference in b cell mitogen responsiveness between closely related strains of mice.spleen cells from c3h/hej mice respond very poorly to the mitogenic action of endotoxin (lps) in vitro whereas cells from a very closely related strain, c3h/hen respond very well. an analysis of the genetic similarity of these two strains was performed. there is no significant mlr measurable between cells of these strains under a variety of culture conditions. they do not manifest a significant graft-vs-host response nor do they reject reciprocal skin grafts. because of this genetic similarity, ...1975239063
influence of hyperglycemia on survival after hemorrhagic shock.terms such as "insulin resistance" and "glucose intolerance" applied to shock-induced hyperglycemia suggest that this state may prejudice survival. however, our data indicate that posthemorrhage hyperglycemia improves short-term survival. rabbits, either fed until the experiment or fasted for 24 hours, were shocked by rapid removal of 25% of their blood volume (bv) measured by 131ihsa. during the next 60 minutes, blood pressure (bp) was recorded, and the following variables were measured every 1 ...1978262089

stable and short-lived isotopes in the study of tissue distribution.two relatively novel techniques that are utilized in the study of tissue distribution of drugs are discussed. the first technique, gc-ms fragmentography, provides an opportunity for the identification and quantification of several compounds and internal standards, in the same analysis, at picogram to nanogram amounts. the second technique utilizes short-lived radioisotopes and external scintigraphy. this approach can continuously monitor the tissue and organ distribution of an appropriately labe ...1977404434

deoxyribonucleic acid relationships among members of the genus aeromonas.polynucleotide sequences among 24 motile and 11 non-motile aeromonads were studied by analysis of deoxyribonucleic acid - deoxyribonucleic acid (dna-dna) duplexes with endonuclease s1. in addition, dna base composition (mole % guanine and cytosine (g + c)) and relative genome sizes were determined for selected strains. large variations in genome size were found and % gc ranged from 57.1 to 62.9%. on the basis of the strains examined, the genus aeromonas consists of two genotypically legitimate g ...1979476540
comparison of antibodies in marine fish from clean and polluted waters of the new york bight: relative levels against 36 from polluted waters are subject to increased prevalence of disease. because they respond to bacterial pathogens by producing serum antibodies, it was possible to construct a seasonal serological record in three fish species from clean and polluted waters of the new york bight. antibody levels were determined by testing sera for agglutinating activity against 36 strains of bacteria. evaluation of 5,100 antibody titrations showed the following. during warm months, summer flounder (paralichth ...1979518084
role of gastric antrum in gastric and intestinal phases of gastric secretion in dogs.1. the gastric and intestinal phases of gastric secretions were selectively evoked before and after the removal of the antral mucosa in four dogs provided with a special cannula that allowed complete separation of the stomach and duodenum without interrupting neural connexions between them. 2. the gastric phase induced by 5% liver extract meal administered into the stomach at various distension pressures (ranging from 0 to 15cm h2o) resulted in an increase in acid output to about 56% of the hist ...1979521927
