Permanent human tumor cell lines COLO 110, COLO 316, COLO 319, and COLO 330 were established from four patients with serous cystadenocarcinoma of the ovary. COLO 110 was derived from primary tumor tissue; COLO 316, COLO 319, and COLO 330 were derived from cells in malignant effusions. COLO 110 and COLO 316 grew as monolayers of epithelioid cells in culture;(More)
Relationships have frequently been found between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) genotype and various pathological and physiological cardiovascular outcomes and functions. Thus we sought to determine whether ACE genotype affected maximal O2 consumption (VO2 max) and maximal exercise hemodynamics in postmenopausal women with different habitual physical(More)
A continuous human cell line, COLO 357, with exceptional characteristics was derived from a metastasis of a pancreatic adenocarcinoma. COLO 357 grew as an adhering monolayer with a cell doubling time of 21 h and grew with 10% clonal efficiency in soft agar. COLO 357 cells had numerous lamellar inclusions. The cells elaborated the pancreatic enzymes trypsin,(More)
Two human colon carcinoma cell lines derived from the same tumor specimen were characterized. The cell lines, COLO 320 and COLO 321, have amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation cell properties, such as ectopic production of norepinephrine, epinephrine, serotonin, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and parathyroid hormone. The cells were morphologically(More)
Consumption of spicy foods containing capsaicin, the major pungent principle in hot peppers, reportedly promotes negative energy balance. However, many individuals abstain from spicy foods due to the sensory burn and pain elicited by the capsaicin molecule. A potential alternative for nonusers of spicy foods who wish to exploit this energy balance property(More)
