Vascular disease often involves vessel hypertrophy with underlying cellular hypertrophy or hyperplasia. Experimental diabetes stimulates hypertrophy of the rat mesenteric vasculature, and we investigated the hypothesis that this hypertrophy is associated with activation of Na(+)-H(+) exchange (NHE) activity. We measured the NHE activity in isolated, intact(More)
Identifying the structure of unknown molecules is an important activity in the pharmaceutical industry where it underpins the production of new drugs and the analysis of complex biological samples. We present here a new method for automatically identifying the structure of an unknown molecule from its nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrum. In the(More)
We determined the effects of rapid freezing and perfusion fixation on fiber geometry and capillarity in rat skeletal muscle. Fiber areas were significantly decreased, and capillary densities significantly increased, in perfusion-fixed versus quick-frozen muscle. Significant differences in capillary-to-fiber ratios were not observed, suggesting that(More)
