Anion selectivity by the sodium iodide symporter.
The iodide transporter of the thyroid (NIS) has been cloned by the group of Carrasco. The NIS-mediated transport was studied by electrophysiological methods in NIS-expressing Xenopus oocytes. UsingExpand

Selenium Deficiency‐Induced Growth Retardation Is Associated with an Impaired Bone Metabolism and Osteopenia
Although the importance of selenium for bone metabolism is unknown, some clinical conditions such as Kashin‐Beck osteoarthropathy have been associated with selenium deficiency. Although seleniumExpand

Bone blood flow and In vitro proliferation of bone marrow and trabecular bone osteoblast-like cells in ovariectomized rats
SummaryOvariectomy in the rat induces a rapid osteopenia associated with an elevated bone turnover. One hundred and twenty-day-old rats were ovariectomized (OVX) or sham-operated (n=6–8 per group andExpand

Circannual variations in the density of tritiated imipramine binding sites on blood platelets in man.
We demonstrate a circannual variation in the density of binding sites of 3H-imipramine on human platelets of normal controls and depressed patients. These results imply further reassessment ofExpand

The number of fibroblastic colonies formed from bone marrow is decreased and the in vitro proliferation rate of trabecular bone cells increased in aged rats.
Four- and 21-month old female Sprague-Dawley rats were sacrificed and their tibiae and femurs isolated for histology and initiation of bone marrow and trabecular bone cultures. The bone loss observedExpand

The diagnostic value of magnetic resonance imaging in non-traumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head.
To assess the effectiveness of nuclear magnetic-resonance imaging in the detection of osteonecrosis of the femoral head, we studied the cases of twenty-five patients (forty-nine hips) in whomExpand

Abnormalities in the replicative capacity of osteoblastic cells in the proximal femur of patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head.
OBJECTIVE Aseptic nontraumatic osteonecrosis (ON) of the femoral head is a painful disorder that often leads to femoral head collapse due to subchondral fracture. We postulated that alteration ofExpand
