We determined the circulating level of bioactivity for skeletal muscle proteolysis-inducing factors (PIF) in the blood samples from cancer patients whose body weight loss was greater than 10%. The level of bioactivity was estimated by measurement of tyrosine release from isolated 1at diaphragm muscles incubated with an ultrafiltered fraction of plasma or(More)
Tri(n-butyl)phosphate (TNBP) and sodium cholate (SC) mixtures have been used to inactivate lipid-enveloped viruses like HIV and hepatitis B. We exploited the use of this combination to purify fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) from human placenta. Human placentas were extracted in the presence of 0.3% TNBP/0.2% SC and the clarified homogenate was adsorbed(More)
Blood glucose increased in rats treated with a single ip dose of malathion (650 mg/kg). This effect was observed in the first hour of treatment, reached a 2.2-fold peak after 2 hr, and decreased after 4 hr. Malathion (20 micrograms/ml) caused a decrease of glucose utilization in IB-RS-2 cells treated for 8 hr. This effect was observed as early as 30 min(More)
