is raised plasma peptide yy after intestinal resection in the rat responsible for the trophic response?the relationship between the adaptive response and plasma pyy concentrations after small bowel resection has been investigated. seventy five per cent proximal small bowel resection resulted in a rise in plasma pyy at six days from 28 +/- 3.1 to 85 +/- 12.3 pmol/l (p less than 0.001) and this difference was maintained to 48 days. plasma pyy correlates both with crypt cell production rate (ccpr) in the ileum and with plasma enteroglucagon levels. in a second study, pyy or saline was infused over a ...19853841330
sequence analysis of peptide fragments from the intrinsic membrane protein of calf lens fibers mp26 and its natural maturation product mp22.calf lens fiber plasma membranes, containing only the intrinsic membrane protein mp26 and its maturation product mp22 were treated with proteolytic enzymes such as trypsin, protease v8 from s. aureus or with chemical agents as cnbr in formic acid. the cleavage products, purified by electrophoresis, were analysed for their amino acid composition and n-terminal sequences. proteolysis gave rise to peptides which were mainly shortened at the c-terminal end of the molecules. while the v8 protease pro ...19853882455
cardioprotective effects of defibrotide in acute myocardial ischemia in the cat.we investigated the effects of defibrotide (d), a natural polydeoxyribonucleotide, on acute myocardial ischemia (ami) in anesthetized cats. a permanent ligature was placed around the left anterior descending coronary artery (lad) 12-14 mm from its origin. ventricular fibrillation and death were exceptional and when they occurred the cats were not included in the evaluation. pretreatment of cats with d, 32 mg kg-1 h-1, i.v. infusion, maintained throughout the 5 h occlusion period, reduced ami-st ...19853890260

effect of melanin concentrating hormone on pigment and adrenal cells in vitro.highly purified synthetic salmonid melanin concentrating hormone (mch) and some analogs were investigated for their ability to concentrate the pigment in scale melanophores of the chinese grass carp, ctenopharyngodon idellus, to produce melanin dispersion in frog or lizard melanophores and to inhibit alpha-msh in its action on mouse melanoma and rat adrenal glomerulosa cells in vitro. in the grass carp, mch produced half-maximal pigment aggregation at 6 x 10(-11) m and its oxidized form at 7 x 1 ...19853938841
phospholipase a2-treated human high-density lipoprotein and cholesterol movements: exchange processes and lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase reactivity.human hdl3 (d 1.125-1.21 g/ml) were treated by an exogenous phospholipase a2 from crotalus adamenteus in the presence of albumin. phosphatidylcholine hydrolysis ranged between 30 and 90% and the reisolated particle was essentially devoid of lipolysis products. (1) an exchange of free cholesterol was recorded between radiolabelled erythrocytes at 5-10% haematocrit and hdl3 (0.6 mm total cholesterol) from 0 to 12-15 h. isotopic equilibration was reached. kinetic analysis of the data indicated a co ...19863942760
specialized contacts between sarcolemma and sarcoplasmic reticulum at the ends of muscle fibers in the diaphragm of the electron-microscopic study of the myotendinous portion of the diaphragm in the wistar rat has shown that at the ends of muscle fibers, longitudinally oriented invaginations and peripheral furrows of the sarcolemma establish specialized contacts with individual sacs of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. the construction of these terminal contacts is similar to that of contacts between sarcolemmic t-tubules and terminal cisternae of the sarcoplasmic reticulum, characterized by formation of triads. the ...19863948240
identical chromosome translocations involving the region of the c-myb oncogene in four metastases of a mediastinal teratocarcinoma.a 39-year-old white male presented with a disseminated mediastinal teratocarcinoma. karyotyping was performed on two mature residual metastatic lesions in the lungs immediately following chemotherapy, on a recurring lung lesion after 5 months, and on a metastasis in the right thigh 5 months after salvage chemotherapy. all four lesions were pseudoeuploid and showed identical chromosomal abnormalities: a translocation with the two chromosomes #6 and one chromosome #11 involved, resulting in 46, xy ...19853967222
lateral flagellar antigen of vibrio alginolyticus and vibrio harveyi: existence of serovars common to the two species.the antigenicity of lateral (l-) flagella of two marine vibrios, vibrio alginolyticus and v. harveyi, was studied, and the two species were found to have common antigenicity of their flagella. antisera against l-flagella were prepared by immunizing rabbits with highly purified l-flagellar filaments. h-agglutination tests with the anti-l-flagella antisera showed that four h-serovars existed in these species and that two of them were shared by the two species. cross reactivity between h-serovars o ...19854010543
