Levels of serum glutamic oxalacetic transaminase (SGOT) were determined before and(More)
Inositol monophosphatase (IMPase) catalyses the hydrolysis of inositol monophosphate to inositol and is crucial in the phosphatidylinositol (PI) signalling pathway. Lithium, which is the drug of choice for bipolar disorder, inhibits IMPase at therapeutically relevant plasma concentrations. Both mouse IMPase 1 (MmIMPase 1) and human IMPase 1 (HsIMPase 1)(More)
The blood pressures and pulse rates of 257 normal full-term infants and their mothers were measured two to four days after birth. Birthweight was correlated with systolic (P=.038), but not with diastolic blood pressure. Infants who were asleep had significantly lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure than infants who were awake (P less than .001). Sex,(More)
A radioimmunoassay method for urinary catechol estrogens is described; The specific nature of the antisera allows direct analyses of acid hydrolyzed urine. A LH-20 Sephadex column chromatography can be employed for individual determinations of 2-hydroxyestrone and 2-hydroxyestradiol. The excretion of catechol estrogens during menstrual cycles ranged from(More)
