In Xenopus oocytes coexpressing beta 2-adrenergic receptors and the rat cardiac alpha SkM2 Na+ channel, superfusion with 10 microM isoproterenol led to modest (approximately 30%) increases in peak Na+ inward current. Intracellular injection of cAMP and of protein kinase A (PKA) catalytic subunit reproduced this increase, showing that the second messenger(More)
1. In order to investigate the modulation of human hH1 sodium channel alpha-subunits by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA), the channel was expressed in oocytes of Xenopus laevis. 2. Cytosolic injection of cAMP, as well as of SP-cyclic 3',5'-hydrogen phosphorothioate adenosine triethylammonium salt (SP-cAMPS, the S-diastereoisomeric configuration of the(More)
Both the neuronal IIA as well as the cardiac SkM2 isoform of the pore forming α-subunit of voltage dependent sodium channels are modulated by Protein Kinase A. While αIIA becomes attenuated upon PKA stimulation, αSkM2 becomes upregulated. PKC dependent phosphorylation of a serine, located in the highly conserved cytoplasmatic region between the third and(More)
Apolipoprotein D (apoD), also known as gross cystic disease fluid protein-24 (GCDFP-24), is a minor protein moiety of high-density lipoproteins in human plasma. ApoD is expressed in a subset of breast carcinomas and has been proposed as a tumor marker and prognostic indicator for breast cancer progression. Here we describe a new sensitive time-resolved(More)
The stimulation of the D-(1-14C)glucose and D-(6-14C)glucose metabolism in pig leucocytes during the phagocytosis of bacteria and inert particles was studied. The following results were obtained: 1. The magnitude of phagocytosis-stimulated glucose oxidation is directly related to the nature and number of particles added. 2. Live bacteria stimulate the(More)
