Characterization of the thiazide-sensitive Na(+)-Cl(-) cotransporter: a new model for ions and diuretics interaction.
The thiazide-sensitive Na(+)-Cl(-) cotransporter (TSC) is the major pathway for salt reabsorption in the apical membrane of the mammalian distal convoluted tubule. When expressed in Xenopus laevisExpand

Reduction in Hematocrit and Hemoglobin Following Pioglitazone Treatment is not Hemodilutional in Type II Diabetes Mellitus
Peripheral edema, mild weight gain, and anemia are often observed in type II diabetic patients treated with thiazolidinediones (TZDs). Small decreases in hemoglobin (Hb) and hematocrit (Hct) appearExpand

Increased binding of radioactive Concanavalin A during maturation of Ascidia eggs.
Abstract By the use of 125I-ConA it is shown that in the egg of Ascidia malaca a 2- to 4-fold increase of Con A receptors occurs at the time the fertilized egg completes maturation.

Peripheral nerve soluble esterases are spontaneously reactivated after inhibition by paraoxon: implications for a new definition of neuropathy target esterase.
Soluble extracts of chicken peripheral nerve contain detectable amounts of phenyl valerate esterase (PVase) activity (about 2000 nmol/min per g of fresh tissue). More than 95% of this activity isExpand

A stereospecific phosphotriesterase in hen liver and brain.
O-Hexyl, O-2,5-dichlorophenyl phosphoramidate (HDCP) is a chiral compound that induces delayed neuropathy in hens. This compound is hydrolyzed by a phosphotriesterase known as HDCPase in hen and ratExpand

Chicken serum albumin hydrolyzes dichlorophenyl phosphoramidates by a mechanism based on transient phosphorylation.
The hydrolyzing activities of O-hexyl O-2,5-dichlorophenyl phosphoramidate (HDCP) and p-nitrophenyl butyrate (p-NPB) in chicken serum had been found to copurify in the same protein, identified asExpand

Purification of the lipophosphoglycan from two Leishmania mexicana strains by lectin affinity chromatography.
Two lipophosphoglycans (LPG) from two Leishmania mexicana (Soberano and Yucatan) strains, isolated in Mexico, were purified by affinity chromatography with the Con A lectin. The LPG from each strain,Expand

[Lack of effect of cicletanine and its sulfoconjugated metabolite on the thiazide receptor expressed in Xenopus oocytes].
UNLABELLED Although the renal receptor at which cicletanine acts is unknown, cicletanine was assumed to act like thiazide diuretics. Here we tested cicletanine and its natriuretic metabolite,Expand
