Elution profiles of total lipoproteins, apolipoprotein B (apoB) concentrations in lipoproteins, and plasma triglyceride (TG) levels were examined in early-, late-, and non-lactating cows. Additionally, arteriovenous (A-V) differences were also measured to elucidate the uptake of TG and apoB-containing lipoproteins in mammary gland. Non-lactating cows showed(More)
Ovariectomized animals have frequently been used to study the effects of estrogen deficiency on mood disorders, particularly anxiety disorder. However, a range of results including anxiolytic, anxiogenic, and no behavioral effects have been reported. One discrepancy was the different in behavioral testing time following ovariectomized; therefore, the aim of(More)
Pregnant rats were subcutaneously administered with recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-I (rhIGF-I) in doses of 0 (control), 1, 2, and 4 microg/g body weight per day from day 18 to 21 of pregnancy. On day 21 of pregnancy, maternal and fetal plasma samples were collected and those amino acid levels were measured. The ratios of fetal/maternal plasma(More)
To evaluate the effects of epidermal growth factor (EGF) on placental amino acids uptake, transport activities for L-proline, L-leucine, and L-alanine were kinetically examined in placental microvillous vesicles(PMV) obtained from pregnant rats administered with EGF(100 and 200 microg/kg/day) from day 18 to 21 of pregnancy. The Vmax of Na(+)-dependent(More)
To characterize the active transport of amino acids across the placenta, uptakes of proline, leucine, and alanine were kinetically examined in placental microvillous membrane vesicles (PMV) prepared from rats in the late gestational period. Uptake rates of these amino acids in PMV showed saturable hyperbolic curves that obeyed Michaelis-Menten kinetics.(More)
