Bcl-2 is a mitochondrial- and perinuclear-associated protein that prolongs the lifespan of a variety of cell types by interfering with programmed cell death (apoptosis). Bcl-2 seems to function in an antioxidant pathway, and it is believed that membrane attachment mediated by a COOH-terminal hydrophobic tail is required for its full activity. To identify(More)
Transepithelial Na+ reabsorption across tight epithelia is regulated by aldosterone. Mineralocorticoids modulate the expression of a number of proteins. Na+,K+-ATPase has been identified as an aldosterone-induced protein (Geering, K., M. Girardet, C. Bron, J. P. Kraehenbuhl, and B. C. Rossier, 1982, J. Biol. Chem., 257:10338-10343). Using A6 cells (kidney(More)
A cDNA for the rabbit low Mr polymeric immunoglobulin (poly-Ig) receptor was expressed in an immortalized rabbit mammary cell line. The intracellular routing of the receptor and its cell surface expression was analyzed in stably transfected cells grown on permeable supports. Initially the cells formed a monolayer with no transmural electrical resistance.(More)
This publication forms the third part of a critical evaluation of pharmaco-EEG applications as an instrument for assessing the profile of action of psychoactive drugs based on the trial results of three new psychoactive test substances: savoxepine, levoprotiline and maroxepine. After the presentation, in Parts I (savoxepine) and II (levoprotiline), of trial(More)
The present paper forms the second part of a critical evaluation of the use of pharmaco-EEG as an instrument for assessing the profile of action of psychoactive drugs in man based on the trial results of three new psychoactive test substances. Part I described the basic principles and methodological approaches and illustrated the value of pharmaco-EEG in(More)
The present paper forms the first part of a contribution to a comprehensive critical evaluation of the use of pharmaco-electroencephalography (pharmaco-EEG) as an instrument in the evaluation of pharmacodynamic effects of psychoactive drugs in man and further prediction of therapeutic effects by utilizing partial effects in a clinical pharmacological model(More)
