Human alveolar macrophages (HAM) are the major resident phagocytic cells of the gas-exchanging areas of the lung. Following contact with macrophages, bacteria enter phagosomes, which gradually acquire the characteristics of terminal phagolysosomes, with incorporation of lysosome-associated membrane protein (LAMP). We measured the binding of type 1(More)
1. The development of post-exercise ketosis is not abolished by the ingestion of glucose immediately after exercise, despite inducing high insulin/glucagon ratios in the peripheral (and therefore by implication in the portal) blood. 2. To investigate the possibility of autonomic control of the liver influencing its sensitivity to the major(More)
There is epidemiological evidence for a protective property of oestrogen on vasculature which may be linked to an ability to relax vascular smooth muscle [I]. 170 oestradiol was shown to relax rabbit aorta and coronary arteries [2,3] and dilate rat tail artery [4]. The biochemical target for this action is unclear, although effects on calcium flux have been(More)
Occupational exposure to carbon disulfide (CS2) exhibits central nervous systems toxicity. But the mechanism is unclear. The present study was designed to investigate the relationship between the CNS damage and cognitive dysfunction caused by CS2, and eventually reveal the possible oxidative-related mechanism of hippocampus pathological changes in CS2(More)
