Several agents that act through G-protein-coupled receptors and also stimulate phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC), including angiotensin II, vasopressin, norepinephrine, and prostaglandin (PG) F2alpha, activated the ERK1 (p44mapk) and ERK2 (p42mapk) members of the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase family in primary cultures of rat… (More)
Primary monolayer cultures of rat hepatocytes were used for studies of long-term and acute effects of hormones on the cyclic AMP system. When hepatocyte lysates were assayed at various times after plating of the cells three major changes in the metabolism of cyclic AMP and its regulation were observed: Glucagon-sensitive adenylate cyclase activity gradually… (More)
A system for interactively describing and modifying free-form surfaces is presented. The system is based on the use of bicubic patches. Although it is not a full-fledged mechanical CAD system, it has been used to construct complex surface descriptions. It is also useful as a testbed for further experimentation.
Pretreatment of cultured rat hepatocytes with dexamethasone markedly enhanced the acute cAMP response to glucagon, isoproterenol or forskolin. The effect of dexamethasone was apparent within 3-6 hr and was maximal after 20-30 hr. The amplification of the cAMP response to glucagon could also be produced by other glucocorticoids, with relative potency… (More)
LASSETER : Were going to start about 24 seconds early. We've got really a full program here. We'd like to make one announcement first-that there's absolutely no videotapin g allowed in this session. If anybody sees someone videotaping next to him, they have the co-chair's permission to beat th e living daylights out of them. By the way, it won't matter. We… (More)
Electron backscatter diffraction has been increasingly used to identify the crystallographic planes and orientation of cleavage facets with respect to the rolling direction in fracture surfaces. The crystallographic indices of cleavage planes can be determined either directly from the fracture surface or indirectly from metallographic sections perpendicular… (More)
