1. Perfusion of bovine adrenal glands with a potassium-free Tyrode solution results in an increased spontaneous release of catecholamines and an increased response to stimulation with carbamylcholine.2. Perfusion with a Tyrode solution containing 70 mM-KCl causes a marked secretion of catecholamines and a subsequent inhibition of secretion in response to(More)
This study demonstrated that chronic aspartame consumption in rats can lead to altered T-maze performance and increased muscarinic cholinergic receptor densities in certain brain regions. Control and treated rats were trained in a T-maze to a particular side and then periodically tested to see how well they retained the learned response. Rats that had(More)
African American women lose less weight and at a slower rate than Caucasian women under the same weight loss conditions. This is likely due to decreased mobilization of fat, possibly involving differences in the responsiveness of adipose tissue to adrenergic stimulation. To better understand the causes behind the decreased lipolysis in African American(More)
