Female C57Bl/6J mice were given drinking water containing 0.05% propylthiouracil to induce a hypothyroid condition. Mitochondrial glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase activity, used as an index of hypothyroidism, was 57.1 +/- 4.5 and 29.4 +/- 3.8 nmol/min per mg of protein for control and propylthiouracil-treated animals respectively.

The discordance between genome size and the complexity of eukaryotes can partly be attributed to differences in repeat density. The Muller F element (∼5.2 Mb) is the smallest chromosome in Drosophila melanogaster, but it is substantially larger (>18.7 Mb) in D. ananassae To identify the major contributors to the expansion of the F element and to assess(More)
