The modulation of pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) synthesis in Xenopus laevis pituitary intermediate lobe (IL) during background adaptation and the role of dopamine and cAMP in mediating this effect were examined. Neurointermediate lobes (NILs) were pulselabeled in vitro with [3H]arginine and analyzed for POMC synthesis by acid-urea gel electrophoresis. After(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are important mediators of diabetic nephropathy that act through the receptor for AGEs (RAGE), as well as other mechanisms, to promote renal inflammation and glomerulosclerosis. The relative contribution of RAGE-dependent and RAGE-independent signaling pathways has not been previously studied in vivo. In this study,(More)
