To study the effect of lymphocyte adhesion on the procoagulant activity of endothelial cells, we have stimulated HUVECs with interferon-gamma to upregulate adhesion molecules. Subsequent addition of lymphocytes induced the expression of tissue factor (TF) by HUVECs. Both CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells promoted this TF synthesis via distinct adhesion molecules (CD4+(More)
Climate change might impact crop yields considerably and anticipated transformations of agricultural systems are needed in the coming decades to sustain affordable food provision. However, decision-making on transformational shifts in agricultural systems is plagued by uncertainties concerning the nature and geography of climate change, its impacts, and(More)
Integrated Assessment models, widely applied in climate change mitigation research, show that renewable energy sources (RES)play an important role in the decarbonization of the electricity sector. However, the representation of relevant technologies in those models is highly stylized, thereby omitting important information about the variability of(More)
Hepatosplanchnic blood flow (EHBF) was estimated with the single-injection method using indocyanine green in 10 patients without cardiac failure before and after 20 min of an intravenous infusion of dopamine. Five patients received 4 microgram/kg/min and another 5 patients 8 microgram/kg/min. The cardiac index (CI) was determined according to the Fick(More)
The majority of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) microdeletions in 17q11.2 span approximately 1.4 Mb and have breakpoints that lie within the proximal and distal NF1-low copy repeats, termed NF1-REPs. Less frequent are patients with atypical deletions and non-recurring breakpoints. NF1 patients with gross deletions have been reported to manifest a more severe(More)
Die Hyperglykämie nach einmaliger stossartiger Glukoseinjektion bewirkt einen Durchblutungsanstieg der Bauchspeicheldrüse. Dieser wurde kontinuierlich mit einem elektromagnetischen Blutstrommesser bei narkotisierten Hunden registriet. Der Anstieg setzt sich aus 2 Abschnitten zusammen, wovon der erste unspezifisch auch in der A. femoralis auftritt.
We have investigated the role of the two distinct tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptors (TNFR60 and TNFR80) in endothelial cell activation employing an in vitro model of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha)-dependent tissue factor production of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). In this model, tissue factor is produced either on addition of(More)
Based on previous studies showed adhesion molecule-dependent induction of tissue factor upon endothelium-lymphocyte interactions, we investigated whether E-selectin and ICAM-1 are linked to signaling pathways leading to tissue factor gene expression. Cellular interaction was mimicked by antibody cross-linking of E-selectin and ICAM-1 on the surface of human(More)
