A system was described for studying bovine leukotaxis. Chemotaxis was readily observed toward bovine serum activated by zymosan of agarose. However, bacterial culture filtrates and peptides, which were potent chemotaxins for leukocytes from other species, failed to affect bovine leukotaxis. Using conditions suitable for studying binding to leukocytes from(More)
An investigation was conducted on the effects of the non-steroidal antiandrogen flutamide (F; alpha-alpha-alpha-tri-fluoro-2-methyl-4-nitro-m-propionotoluidide) on two neuroendocrine mechanisms in the male rat, androgen-dependent sexual behavior, and LH regulation. F was administered in the dose of 50 mg/kg/day SC. In intact, sexually experienced adult(More)
A cross-sectional study on 220 men, aged 41-93 yr, was conducted to determine whether age-related changes in circulating pituitary and gonadal hormone levels are related to quantitatively assessed changes in sexuality over this age span. The conclusion of most previous studies, that total and free plasma testosterone (T) levels decline with advancing age as(More)
Antisense DNA has shown an ability to target specific oncogene transcripts and inhibit their expression in cells, but the degree to which sustained treatment can suppress total levels of an oncogenic product and alter tumorigenesis in vivo remains to be determined. In this study, NIH-3T3 cells transformed by the activated c-Ha-ras oncogene from T24 human(More)
Animal studies of therapeutic oligonucleotides require measurement of circulating levels of oligonucleotides by multistep, time-consuming methods. In contrast, addition of a single-stranded DNA binding fluorophore, OliGreen, to oligonucleotides in plasma samples allowed rapid quantitation. Dose-response curves were measured for five different(More)
Cell proliferation is a key focus of research in cell biology, relating as it does to development, aging, immune activation, tumorigenesis and basic cellular processes such as signal transduction, DNA transcription and DNA replication. A wide variety of techniques for evaluating cell proliferation in culture have been described including direct cell(More)
Seasonal changes in body weight, plasma testosterone and ejaculatory capacity were observed in five intact and two testosterone-implanted castrated squirrel monkeys for a total of 13 months. Electroejaculation was employed for obtaining data concerning ejaculation. In the intact animals, there were significant increases in body weight, ejaculate volume and(More)
The effects of centrifugation for various lengths of time were investigated on circulating levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone in male rats. In a chronic 52-day experiment, centrifugation at 4.1 G significantly reduced LH and testosterone levels for the entire period. Centrifugation at 2.3 G had less effect inasmuch as LH levels were not(More)
