Neuronal remodeling with increased sympathetic innervation density has been implicated in the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation (AF). Recently, increased transcardiac nerve growth factor (NGF) levels were observed in a canine model of AF. Whether atrial myocytes or cardiac sympathetic neurons are the source of neurotrophins, and whether NGF is the main(More)
The trypsin inhibiting activity in the serum of male mice is substantially greater than that in females. In five strains of mice and two large groups of interstrain hybrids this difference ranged from 14 (in ICR mice) to 55 percent (in DBA mice). Castration of males significantly decreased the serum trypsin inhibiting activity, whereas the administration of(More)
