Platelet thrombus formation includes several integrated processes involving aggregation, secretion of granules, release of arachidonic acid and clot retraction, but it is not clear which metabolic fuels are required to support these events. We hypothesized that there is flexibility in the fuels that can be utilized to serve the energetic and metabolic needs(More)
The effect of a newly developed growth hormone (GH)-releasing hexapeptide (KP-102) on GH secretion was studied in urethan-anesthetized adult male rats. Although KP-102 alone exerted a small influence on GH secretion, it produced a large plasma GH response in the presence of exogenous GH-releasing factor (GRF). During the continuous infusion of GRF, the(More)
