We give a probabilistic powerdomain construction on the category of inductively complete partial orders; it is the partial order of continuous [0, 11-valued evaluations on the Scott topology. By means of a theory of integration with respect to such evaluations, the power-domain is shown to be a monad, and indeed one gets a model for Moggi's computational(More)
The effect of nitric oxide (NO) on cytochrome P450-mediated benzyloxyresorufin and ethoxyresorufin O-dealkylase activity of rat hepatic postmitochondrial (S-9) or microsomal subfractions, or purified rat liver CYP2B1, was examined. Two distinct inhibitory phases were observed regardless of whether the NO was added prior to initiation of the reactions with(More)
We have employed both (31)P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and two intracellular fluorescent pH indicator dyes to monitor the pH of the vacuole and cytoplasm of suspension-cultured soybean cells (Glycine max Merr cv Kent). For the (31)P nuclear magnetic resonance studies, a flow cell was constructed that allowed perfusion of the cells in oxygenated(More)
Putative receptors for endothelin were localised autoradiographically in frozen sections of rat and human brain using [125I]endothelin as a ligand. In the rat brain the highest densities were in the granular layer of the cerebellum, choroid plexus, hippocampus, and habenular nucleus. Similar brain high densities were found in the human cerebellum and(More)
The presence of binding sites for [125I]endothelin-1 and the contractile activities of endothelins (ETs) and sarafotoxin S6b and the endothelin fragment ET(16-21) were investigated in guinea pig trachea. ETs and sarafotoxin S6b (0.1-100 nM) induced potent contractile responses in guinea pig trachea with EC50 values ranging from 1.57 to 12.97 nM. Epithelium(More)
Elevated plasma levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol are a major risk factor for atherosclerosis leading to coronary artery disease (CAD), which remains the main cause of mortality in Western society. We believe that by preventing the reabsorption of bile acids, a minimally absorbed apical sodium-codependent bile acid transporter (ASBT)(More)
Awake adult male rats were infused intravenously with [3H]arachidonic acid for 5 min, with or without prior administration of an M1 cholinergic agonist, arecoline (15 mg/kg i.p.). Methylatropine was also administered (4 mg/kg s.c.) to control and arecoline-treated animals. At 15 min postinfusion, the animals were killed, brains were removed and frozen, and(More)
The ability of phenobarbital (PB) to induce a "pleiotropic response" which includes both cytochromes P450 (CYP) as well as other drug-metabolizing enzymes was investigated in mice, rabbits, hamsters, and various inbred strains of rats. PB induced similar drug-metabolizing enzymes (CYP2B, CYP3A, and epoxide hydrolase) in rats, mice, rabbits and hamsters. PB(More)
The effects of a number of phenobarbital-type inducers on selected drug-metabolizing enzymes in male F344/NCr rats were determined by measuring specific catalytic activities and/or by measuring the levels of RNA which hybridize with specific probes for the corresponding genes. The effects on hepatic CYP2B1 were assessed by measuring the levels of(More)
A measurement of the ratio of the branching fractions of the B(+) → K(+)μ(+)μ(-) and B(+) → K(+)e(+)e(-) decays is presented using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb(-1), recorded with the LHCb experiment at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV. The value of the ratio of branching fractions for the dilepton(More)
