Phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) belongs to the lipid transfer/lipopolysaccharide-binding protein gene family. Expression of PLTP has been implicated in the development of atherosclerosis. We evaluated the effects of PLTP region tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on the prediction of both carotid artery disease (CAAD) and PLTP activity. CAAD(More)
The presence of inhibin like peptide which is biologically active in reducing FSH secretion in castrated rats and suppressing hCG-induced increase in ovarian weights of immature mice, is reported for the first time in gastric aspirates of normal men. Immunological characteristics of this peptide were similar to inhibin extracted from human seminal plasma.(More)
"Inhibin"-like protein, partially purified from the human prostate, was similar to that obtained from human seminal plasma under identical conditions. Concentration of inhibin in human prostate was tenfold higher as compared to human testis and was active biologically and immunologically. The presence of a high amount of inhibin in prostate seems to be(More)
Using a homogeneous inhibin preparation from human seminal plasma with a molecular weight of about 19 000, a sensitive and specific radioimmunoassay (RIA) for inhibin has been developed. None of the purified hormones tested, such as LH, FSH and prolactin from different species, showed any cross-reaction in this RIA. Steroid hormones such as testosterone,(More)
Levels of inhibin in the seminal plasma of oligozoospermic and normozoospermic semen and normal human accessory reproductive organs were estimated using specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay (RIA). Seminal inhibin content showed a positive correlation (r = 0.827) with the sperm concentration. Further, in the human accessory reproductive organs, prostate(More)
Rabbit antiserum to human seminal plasma inhibin (hSPI) was administered subcutaneously to developing male rats of 5, 10, 14, 17 and 24 days of age and the size of the endogenous FSH rise in serum was measured. The FSH levels were threefold higher on day 9 and 1.5-fold higher on days 14 and 18 when compared with levels in control rats treated with normal(More)
The effects of both high and low molecular weight inhibin preparations on testicular and pituitary receptors were studied. Both these preparations were able to inhibit the binding of labelled hFSH to testicular receptor in a dose related manner, but were unable to affect the binding of labelled hCG to its receptor, suggesting that the observed inhibition of(More)
BACKGROUND Left atrial (LA) remodeling is a predictor of cardiovascular disease (CVD). We performed measurement of the LA function index (LAFI), a composite measure of LA structure and function, in a community-based cohort and here report the distribution and cross-sectional correlates of LAFI. METHODS In 1,719 Framingham Offspring Study participants (54%(More)
