Pumps are designed and manufactured to operate well away from the cavitation condition and thus the factors affecting the onset of cavitation are important. A specially designed test rig was and constructed so that the onset of cavitation could be studied visually while obtaining actual NPSH data. The magnitude of the NPSH level at 3% drop in total(More)
We have studied the effects of chronic peripheral infusion of thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) and norepinephrine (NE) alone and together. Do these hormones additively affect energy balance and body weight similarly in lean and obese animals? 20 each lean Wistar and obese (fa/fa) Zucker strain rats were studied. Food intake, body weight and resting(More)
NPY has been reported to co-exist within catecholaminergic neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems. The functional significance in noradrenergic neurons has been related to the vasomotor effects of NPY which complement and interact with NE which is known to have central and peripheral effects on resting metabolic rate (RMR), food intake and(More)

We have studied the effects of chronic peripheral infusion of Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and norepinephrine (NE) alone and together. Do these hormones additively affect the metabolic activity of Brown adipost tissue (BAT in obese animals? 20 obese (fa/fa) Zucker strain rats were studied. The diameter of the triglyceride droplets (TGDs) was measured as an(More)
In previous study, we have reported the effects of chronic peripheral infusion of Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and norepinephrine (NE) alone and together on the metabolic activity of the brown adipose tissue (BAT) in warm acclimated studies in genetically obese reflected in the changes in the size of the triglyceride droplets (TGD) of this tissue. Do these hormones(More)
