BACKGROUND The anatomy of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint, particularly the metatarsosesamoid articulation, remains poorly understood. Our goal was to quantitatively define the excursion of the sesamoids. METHODS Seven cadavers were dissected to assess the articulating surfaces throughout a normal range of motion. The dissections were digitally(More)
1. Cell swelling induces exocytosis of material stored in secretory vesicles resulting in a secretory burst of peptidic hormones or enzymes from various types of cells including endocrine cells and neurons. We have previously shown that swelling-induced exocytosis possesses limited selectivity; hypotonic medium evokes TRH but not oxytocin release from(More)
There is considerable evidence linking alcohol consumption, sedation, and thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) in the brain septum. We have shown that ethanol in clinically relevant concentrations can in vitro induce TRH release from the septum by a mechanism involving neuronal swelling. Corticotropin-releasing hormone-deficient (CRH-KO) mice serve as an(More)
