Ethanol (1-20% vol/vol) caused a dose-dependent reduction in the basal rate of acid formation in isolated rabbit gastric glands with a calculated EC(50) value of 4.5 +/- 0.2%. Ethanol also reduced ATP levels in isolated gastric glands and in cultured parietal cells (EC(50): 8.8 +/- 0.4% and 8.5 +/- 0.2%, respectively) and decreased both basal and(More)
Genetically obese (fa/fa) Zucker rats show oral glucose intolerance, an alteration that has been attributed at least in part to an impaired suppression of hepatic glucose output after the ingestion of glucose. In this work, we studied the influence of different concentrations of glucose (2.5-30 mM) on gluconeogenesis from a mixture of [14C]lactate-pyruvate(More)
Genetically obese (fa/fa) Zucker rats present an impaired response of hepatic glucose production to the inhibition by insulin. In this work, we have investigated the modulation by this hormone of epinephrine-stimulated gluconeogenesis, in hepatocytes isolated from obese (fa/fa) rats and their lean (Fa/-) littermates. Epinephrine (1 microM) caused a maximal(More)
In the preceding paper ( 1), there was presented a summary of the maximum titers of cold agglutinins found in 1069 cases of a variety of conditions, including the various infections of the respiratory tract that are commonly encountered in this vicinity. Significant titers (in dilutions greater than 20) were obtained only in cases of primary atypical(More)
Hereditary fructose intolerance (HFI) is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by aldolase (fructosediphosphate aldolase, EC 4.1.2.13) B deficiency. The B isoform of aldolase is critical for the metabolism of exogenous fructose by the liver, kidney, and intestine, since it can use fructose-1-phosphate as substrate at physiological concentrations,(More)

The obese (fa/fa) Zucker rat shows an impaired sympathetic tone which is accompanied by an altered thermogenesis and changes in both lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. In this work, we have investigated the regulatory effects of epinephrine on the rate of gluconeogenesis from a mixture of [(14)C]lactate/pyruvate, in hepatocytes isolated from obese (fa/fa)(More)
The addition to different types of cells of an inositol-phosphate glycan, generated by the phospholipase C-catalyzed hydrolysis of a insulin-sensitive glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (glycosyl-PI), mimics some of the biological effects of this hormone. Recently, a specific, time-, dose-, and energy-dependent transport system for this inositol-phosphate glycan(More)
