Norepinephrine (NE) and epinephrine (E) are metabolized extraneuronally by catechol-O-methyl-transferase to the metanephrines (MNs), normetanephrine (NMN) and metanephrine (MN). Subjects in this study received infusions of tritium-labeled NE and E. Concentrations of MNs and catecholamines were measured in plasma flowing into and out of the heart, forearm,(More)
alpha 1-Antitrypsin (alpha 1AT) provides the major protection in the lung against neutrophil elastase-mediated proteolysis. Inheritance of alpha 1AT deficiency alleles is associated with an increased risk of emphysema and liver disease. alpha 1AT null alleles cause the total absence of serum alpha 1AT and represent the ultimate in a continuum of alleles(More)
Controversy exists whether or not cardiac nerves regrow into a human transplanted heart. The present study examined cardiac noradrenergic function one year following cardiac transplantation. Eight male cardiac transplant recipients having standard triple immunosuppressive treatment were catheterized diagnostically one year after heart transplantation. They(More)
Editing of RNA via the insertion, deletion or substitution of genetic information affects gene expression in a variety of systems. Previous characterization of the Physarum polycephalum cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (col) mRNA revealed that both nucleotide insertions and base substitutions occur during the maturation of this mitochondrial message. Both(More)
