HIV, health, drug treatment and family planning information and services were provided in addition to recruiting subjects to the research program.

Erythrocytes from 5% of a normal population accumulated relatively high amounts of radioactive inosine triphosphate (i.e., greater than 70 nmoles/10(10) cells in 2 hr) when they were incubated with [14C]hypoxanthine. The incidence of this characteristic in a mentally retarded population was 16%. Inosine triphosphate was synthesized from [14C]hypoxanthine,(More)
The roles of calcium ions and voltage-sensitive calcium channels in gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-stimulated luteinizing hormone (LH) release were investigated in rat anterior pituitary cells. The calcium ionophores A23187 and ionomycin stimulated LH release from cultured pituitary cells, in which ionomycin (5 X 10(-5) M) was as effective as a(More)
