BACKGROUND When European silver eels (Anguilla anguilla) venture into the Atlantic Ocean for their 6,000 km semelparous spawning run to the Sargasso Sea, they are still in a prepubertal stage. Further sexual development appears to be blocked by dopaminergic inhibition of hypothalamus and pituitary activity. Recently, we found that swimming for several weeks(More)
BACKGROUND If European silver eels are prevented from reproductive migration, they remain in a prepubertal stage by dopaminergic inhibition of pituitary activity. Because this inhibition is likely a requirement for an extended female growth stage, we tested if it is sex-specific by subjecting both sexes to stimulation by GnRHa (Gonadotropin-Releasing(More)
The IBM 3081 Processor Complex consists of a 3081 Processor Unit and supporting units for processor control, power, and cooling. The Processor Unit, completely implemented in LSI technology, has a dyadic organization of two central processors, each with a 26-ns machine cycle time, and executes System/370 instructions at approximately twice the rate of the(More)
INTRODUCTION In cystic fibrosis (CF), bone mass deficits as well as a lack of muscle mass and force have been described. The bone mass deficits are thought to be at least in part secondary to the reduced muscle mass. Whole body vibration has recently been suggested as an effective technique to increase muscle force and power. The aim of this pilot study was(More)
Airway nitric oxide production is decreased in cystic fibrosis. As growth hormone therapy has been shown to increase nitric oxide production in growth hormone-deficient patients, it may also affect nitric oxide production in patients with cystic fibrosis. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of growth hormone therapy on systemic(More)
