purification and characterization of a plasminogen activator secreted by cultured human pancreatic carcinoma cells.a plasminogen activator secreted by cultured human pancreatic carcinoma (mia paca-2) cells has been purified to apparent homogeneity by procedures including sepharose-l-arginine methyl ester affinity chromatography, sephadex g-200 gel filtration, isoelectric focusing, and sodium dodecyl sulfate gel electrophoresis. the plasminogen activator shares many properties with urokinase including: molecular weight (55 000), isoelectric point (8.7), heat stability (60 degrees c, 30 min), ph stability (1.5 ...197715590
hormonal control of zinc uptake and binding in the rat dorsolateral prostate.the zinc uptake in the dorsolateral prostate of rats was studied after different hormonal manipulations. orchiectomy reduced the uptake of 65zn. administration of estradiol benzoate to orchiectomized rats doubled the 65zn uptake, a phenomenon which was not observed in orchiectomized-adrenalectomized rats. adrenalectomy in orchiectomized rats had no effect on the concentration of radioactivity beyond the castration-induced decrease. a prolactin release inhibitor, 6-methyl-8-erogelenylacetamide, r ...197715955
acute bacteremia in asplenic renal transplant patients.four cases of overwhelming bacteremia were observed in asplenic renal transplant patients 12 to 20 months after transplantation. the bacteriologic findings and presentation of these infections are characteristic of post-splenectomy sepsis reported in nontransplant patients. it is suggested that the absence of the spleen, more than immunosuppression with azathioprine and prednisone, predisposes to these late, uncommon infections after transplantation.197716144

(exo, exo)-2-aryltropane-3-carboxylic esters, hypoglycemic agents with accompanying analgesic activity.(exo, exo)-2-aryltropane-3-carboxylic esters of types 6, 7, and 10 lower circulating blood glucose levels by 60--80%. this activity is accompanied by an analgesic activity roughly equal to that of codeine. both of these activities reside in the 1r enantiomer and extensive structure-activity studies failed to separate them. the specific opioid antagonist nalorphine blocks the analgesic activity but does not diminish the hypoglycemic action. conformational integrity afforded by the ethylene bridge ...197831482
kinetic studies in isolated organs: tools to design analgesic peptides and to analyze their receptor effects.the opioid activities of peptide and non-peptide narcotics were studied in longitudinal muscle strip of guinea pig ileum (gpi) and in mouse vas deferens (mvd). the comparison of agonist activities of peptides found in gpi and mvd offered the opportunity to predict the presence but not the magnitude of potential analgesic activity. the kinetics of the antagonism between naltrexone and different types of agonists were also determined in these systems. using c-6 epimers of naltrexone, it was found ...197933396
factors affecting the incidence and anti-salmonella activity of the anaerobic caecal flora of the young chick.thirty-two different types of anaerobic bacteria isolated from chickens have been tested for anti-salmonella activity in vitro. under the conditions of the test only bacteroides hypermegas and a bifidobacterium sp. were shown to inhibit the salmonellas and this was attributed to the production of volatile fatty acids (vfa's) coupled with a low ph. when these organisms were tested in newly hatched chicks no inhibition of s. typhimurium occurred. possible explanations for this observation are cons ...197934658
the stimulatory effect of 5ht and the role of the paraventricular nucleus on pms induced ovulation in the immature rat.immature rats can be induced to ovulate with pregnant mare serum (pms) as long as they weigh over 60 g. in the rats weighing less than 60 g 5-hydroxytryptamine (5ht)-60 micrograms/rat intraventricularly or 2 micrograms/rat in the paraventricular nucleus (pvn)-stimulated ovulation. injections into several other hypothalamic nuclei were ineffective. in rats weighing greater than 60 g, lesions of the pvn or injection of 10 micrograms/rat p-chlorophenylalanine into the pvn inhibited ovulation. the h ...197937456

chlamydia trachomatis urethritis in men attending a venereal disease clinic: a culture and therapeutic study.urethral specimens from 459 male patients attending a venereal disease clinic were studied for presence of chlamydia trachomatis and neisseria gonorrhoeae. of the 459 patients, 362 had symptoms suggestive of urethritis. in these 362, gonorrhoea was diagnosed in 78 (22%), while 88 (24%) harboured c. trachomatis; 15 harboured both organisms. of those patients from whom c. trachomatis was isolated, 17% had no subjective symptoms of urethritis; the same percentage of symptomless carriers of gonococc ...197876400
a method for continuously monitoring the electrical threshold of single intraspinal nerve fibers.a method is described for the determination and continuous monitoring of the electrical threshold of single primary afferent fibres within the spinal cord of the cat. the centre barrels of multibarrel micropipettes, filled with 3.6 m nacl, were used as stimulating electrodes, impulses in single afferents were recorded peripherally and a firing index of 50% was maintained by using a feedback circuit to regulate the amplitude of the stimulating pulses (0.2-0.3 msec duration, less than 2 microa).197989955
[phospholipids and blood coagulation].after a simplified survey of the chemistry of phospholipids (pl) their presence in the lipid part of thromboplastin is dealt with, the significance of this structure being stressed. in addition, the condition, mode of action and synthesis of pl in blood platelets are extensively discussed and the impact of the composition of thrombocytic pl in the membrane and granular fraction by plasma lipid substances is referred to. the relations between single forms of pl and those proteins activating coagu ...197989981
the immune response of lewis rats to peptide 68-88 of guinea pig myelin basic protein. i. t cell determinants.a series of peptides, produced from peptide 68-88 by selective enzyme cleavage, were used to define the amino acid sequences required for the induction of experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (eae), an in vitro lymphocyte proliferative response (lpr), and serum antibody by peptide 68-88 in the lewis rat. here we present data that indicate that the t cell determinants for induction of eae, an lpr, and helper function in the production of antibody are located in the same region of the molecule ...197990087
involvement of host fc receptors in antibody-mediated cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity reactions.cutaneous basophil hypersensitivity (cbh) reactions are heterogeneous delayed time course basophil-rich responses that can be mediated by either t cells, b cells, or serum antibodies. the current study examined the mechanism by which antibodies mediate cbh in guinea pigs. fc competition experiments were constructed by passively transferring mixtures of anti-klh serum and normal heterologous gamma-globulins. it was found that rabbit igg and its isolated and purified fc fragment [but not the (fab' ...197990094

the intra-nucleolar localization of amplified rdna in xenopus laevis oocytes.a fluorescent feulgen-stain was adapted in order to demonstrate dna-containing structures inside the amplified nucleoli of xenopus laevis. at all stages of oogenesis this method reveals granules or complex structures of dna in each nucleolus. the micronucleoli which do not stain with this method and which do not reveal an internal structure in low molarity saline, unlike real nucleoli are considered as nucleolus-like bodies. the dna-containing structures in the nucleoli can be composed of one or ...197990588
