Hepatocellular dysfunction occurs early in sepsis and this appears to be caused by Kupffer cell-derived TNF-alpha production from the liver as a result of the increased release of the sympathetic neurotransmitter, norepinephrine, from the gut. Ghrelin, a novel stomach-derived peptide, is down-regulated in sepsis and administration of ghrelin into rodents(More)
The beta 2-receptor agonist class of drugs is metabolized in humans almost exclusively by sulfate conjugation. The objective of this investigation was to determine the influence of chemical structure on the stereoselectivity of the sulfoconjugation of these chiral drugs. The pure enantiomers of six beta 2-agonists, including those clinically most widely(More)
Two-phase systems consisting of water, dextran and poly(ethylene glycol) have been used for partition of membranes obtained from Torpedo marmorata electric organ. The partition behaviour of the membranes could be adjusted by using a polymer with covalently-bound charged groups. By using this method, the membranes were divided into several fractions which(More)
Splenic B cells from normal and autoimmune mice were transferred to MHC-compatible xid recipients. Monoclonal antibodies were secreted by the transferred B cells in splenic fragment cultures. These antibodies were evaluated for reactivity and cross-reactivity against a panel of six autoantigens and two conventional antigens using an ELISA assay. The(More)
