Adrenal gland binding sites for atrial natriuretic peptide-(99-126) (ANP) were quantitated in tree shrew (Tupaia belangeri) by incubation of adrenal sections with (3-[125I]-iodotyrosyl28) atrial natriuretic peptide-(99-126), followed by autoradiography with computerized microdensitometry. In the adrenal glands, there are three types of ANP binding sites.(More)
Binding sites for rat atrial natriuretic peptide (6-33) were quantified by incubation of brain sections with (3-[125I]iodotyrosyl28) rat atrial natriuretic peptide (6-33), followed by autoradiography with computerized microdensitometry. Spontaneously hypertensive rats present lower numbers and lower affinity of binding sites than normotensive controls,(More)
Administration of cyclosporine (CsA) following syngeneic/autologous bone marrow transplantation (BMT) elicits a T lymphocyte-dependent autoimmune disease resembling graft-vs-host disease (syngeneic GVHD). This autoaggression syndrome appears to be due to the autorecognition of self-MHC class II antigens by CD8+ cytolytic T cells and a CD4+ autoreactive T(More)
The responsiveness of the adrenal cortex and the sympatho-adrenal-medullary system to stress factors and administration of (1-24) ACTH and insulin was studied in adult rabbits. In comparison to untreated animals, exposure to a novel environment for 10 min followed by artery puncture on 6 consecutive days elicited a moderate increase of corticosteroid (C),(More)
Ultrastructure and histochemistry of clinically normal appearing tissue and secretions of non-lactating human mammary glands have been investigated in order to document and analyse secretory phenomena in the resting gland. The material studied originated from women of different ages (18-74 years) who underwent plastic surgery or surgery for various(More)
Genetic examinations are constantly gaining in importance in medical research and practice. They are therefore being carried out in a growing range of indications. Thanks to genetic engineering it is possible to obtain increasingly more accurate information on genetic factors and hereditary defects in the persons investigated, and indirectly also of their(More)
