Expression of the human coagulation factor VII (FVII) gene by hepatoma cells was modulated in concert with levels of glucose and insulin in the culture medium. In low glucose medium without insulin, amounts of both FVII mRNA and secreted FVII protein were coordinately increased; in the presence of glucose with insulin, both were decreased. Analysis of the(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to investigate associations between coronary heart disease risk and polymorphisms in the coagulation factor (F)VII gene in participants of a large prospective study. METHODS One thousand nine hundred and fifty-seven men were genotyped for four FVII polymorphisms, -670A-->C, -402G-->A, a 10 base pair insertion at -323 (0 >(More)
Polymorphic configurations of the coagulation factor VII gene (F7) are associated with plasma levels of FVII antigen (FVII:Ag) and FVII coagulant activity (FVII:C). Our aim was to determine whether F7 polymorphisms influence risk of ischemic stroke in young adults. One hundred and fifty survivors of ischemic stroke before the age of 45 and an equal number(More)
Pregnant rats were fed to appetite on diets containing 6, 9, 12 or 18% protein and the fetuses were delivered at 20 days. Compared with the 18% protein diet (7.4 MJ), there was a significant increase in food and energy intake in the rats on the 9% (8.7 MJ) and 12% (8.4 MJ) diets, but not on the 6% (7.4 MJ) diet. The efficiency with which the dietary energy(More)
This study compared protein turnover in ten young female gymnasts [10.3 (0.5) years] engaged in regular intense physical training with ten age-matched controls [9.4 (0.6) years)]. Nitrogen flux ( Q), protein synthesis (PS), protein degradation (PD) and net protein turnover (NPB = PS−PD) were measured following a single oral dose of [15N]-glycine. The(More)
Factor (F)VII plays a critical role in initiation of coagulation. Several segments within the 5' flanking region of the FVII gene were previously demonstrated to recognize hepatic nuclear proteins, but few have been identified. To identify a regulatory protein binding the nuclear hormone response region (-237 to -200) of the FVII 5' flanking region and(More)
