Metabolism of arachidonic acid by cytochrome P450 enzymes Recent studies indicate that in the kidney arachi-donic acid (AA) is metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzymes to produce epoxyeicosatrie-noic acids (EETs), dihydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids (DiHETEs), and 19-and 20-hydroxyeicosatetrienoic acids (19-and 20-HETE). CYP450 metabolites of AA play a(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) integrity and function are regulated by nutrition and growth factors. The discovery of ghrelin, a natural growth hormone (GH) secretagogue produced by the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, is a potential link between diet and growth signals. The aim of this study was to evaluate macronutrient effect on ghrelin expression and secretion in(More)
Two attenuated bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) preparations derived from the same Moreau strain, Copenhagen but grown in Sauton medium containing starch and bacto-peptone (onco BCG, O-BCG), or asparagine (intradermal BCG, ID-BCG), exhibited indistinguishable DNA sequences and bacterial morphology. The number of viable bacilli recovered from spleen, liver and(More)
The anti-tumour activity induced by glucans (lentinan, yeast cell walls, pseudonigeran, dextran, DEAE-dextran and dextran sulphate) and fructosans (levan and carboxymethyl-levan) was compared with the activity of C. parvum. The following effects on tumour systems in CBA mice were assayed: (a) adjuvant activity on the immune response against tumour-specific(More)
In the heart, the main pathway for calcium influx is mediated by L-type calcium channels, a multi-subunit complex composed of the pore-forming subunit CaV1.2 and the auxiliary subunits CaVα2δ1 and CaVβ2. To date, five distinct CaVβ2 transcriptional start site (TSS) variants (CaVβ2a-e) varying only in the composition and length of the N-terminal domain have(More)
A bispecific mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb) that recognises carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) with one binding site and vinblastine (VLB) with the other was used, and its in vivo immunosuppressive effect specific for anti-mouse immunoglobulin (Ig) was studied. The antibody was incubated with VLB at a molar ratio (MR) of 1:1, and administered i.v. to rabbits.(More)
