This paper shows the successful isolation of peroxisomes from human liver samples that were kept frozen at -70 degrees C. Purification of these peroxisomes was obtained by a combination of two subcellular fractionation techniques: differential centrifugation and isopycnic fractionation in Nycodenz density gradients. Peroxisome integrity was evaluated by(More)
The presence of a filamin-like protein in oxyntic cells was established by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy. The location of this protein and myosin was studied, using specific antibodies, on frozen sections and isolated cells. Antifilamin and antimyosin reacted strongly with the luminal cytoplasm of the cells. In resting oxyntic cells, filamin(More)
The bradykinin type 2 receptor (B2R), main effector of the pleiotropic kallikrein-kinin system (KKS), has been localized in the key sites related to placentation in human, rat and guinea pig utero-placental units. The present study was directed to characterize the content, the cellular and subcellular localization of B2R in the villi and basal plate of(More)
The association of myosin and a filamin-like protein to the F-actin cytoskeleton of parietal cells was studied in the rat gastric mucosa. Myosin and the filamin-like protein were localized by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy while the distribution of actin was established by using FITC-phalloidin. These cytoskeletal proteins, concentrated in the(More)
The relation between the expression of the oxyntic cell phenotype and the modifications of the extracellular matrix during development of the gastric glands, was studied in 10 to 21 day-old chick embryos. Cytodifferentiation of the oxyntic cells was established by ultrastructural methods, while the expression of pepsinogen, mitochondrial enzyme markers and(More)
The distribution of intermediate filaments in toad and frog urinary bladder was studied on frozen sections by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy using specific antiprekeratin antibodies. Our results show that in both species, epithelial cells lining the urinary bladder are very rich in cytokeratin, organized as a filamentous network. In granular cells,(More)
BACKGROUND Great attention has been paid to the antioxidants present in farmed fish feeds, with the replacement of synthetic antioxidants by natural ones being a main objective. In the present study, Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) was fed a conventional diet that was enriched with different kinds of antioxidants: synthetic antioxidants(More)
Theophylline alone or in the presence of 0.001, 0.01, 0.1 or 1 microgram oestradiol-17 beta/100 g body wt increase uterine RNA and protein content 6 h after administration. Uterine oedema induced by physiological doses of oestradiol-17 beta was increased further in the presence of theophylline. Theophylline decreased the number of eosinophils in the blood(More)
