The total body clearance of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) calculated per kilogram of body weight increased in the order man = dog < rat << mouse. The differences disappeared or were reversed when clearance was expressed per square meter of body surface. There was no similar species difference in terminal half life. Total body clearance increased(More)
In SPF-bred male and female Sprague-Dawley rats the effect of castration on the hypoglycaemic action of a single dose of glibenclamide (HB 419) was investigated. The results of castration showed no unambiguous influence on the normal blood glucose values. The effect of this sulphonyl urea, however, was considerably stimulated by castration and was prolonged(More)
In this study we addressed the question of whether the measurement of the cardiac structure protein cardiac Toponin I (cTnI) in serum is also able to detect marked myocardial cell damage in rats like cardiac Troponin T (cTnT). To answer this question 5 male rats and 5 female rats were injected with orciprenaline to induce myocardial cell damage. Further 5(More)
A cardioselective parameter has been available for about 2 years since the development by KATUS of an immunoassay for cardiac Troponin T (TnT). The major advantages of this TnT assay are its cardiospecificity and its sensitivity. The parameters usually determined in toxicity studies in rats to detect alterations in the myocardial cells, e.g. aspartate(More)
Cardiac Troponin T (cTnT) is a cardiac structural protein which is released in the circulation during myocardial cell damage. In this study we addressed the question of whether beta-sympathomimetic induced myocardial cell damage in rats can be detected in blood by the TROPT sensitive rapid test strip which is primarily manufactured for the detection of(More)
The electrical conductivity of black phosphatidylserine membranes, in solutions of 100 mM NaCl, 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 7.1), is strongly increased by the intrinsic proteins ("strongly bound" protein fraction) from human erythrocyte membranes. The magnitude of the conductivity increase is highly dependent on the maximum pH-value pH used during the(More)
Thin films of MoO3 were prepared by deposition of size-selected ligand-free Mo clusters under high vacuum conditions and subsequent exposure to air. The growth pattern is highly dependent on the cluster size. At low coverage, small clusters (Mo51) form a continuous monolayer of fused particles. On top of this monolayer, additional clusters survive as(More)
