The renal electrogenic Na(+)-HCO3- cotransporter (hkNBCe1) plays a major role in the bicarbonate reabsorption by the kidney. We examined how PMA- and ANG II-activated PKCs regulate hkNBCe1 expressed with or without the ANG II receptors AT(1B) in Xenopus laevis oocytes. We found that 10 nM PMA halved the hkNBCe1 current detected in voltage-clamped oocytes. A(More)
Sensitive and selective enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) in the immobilized antigen format were developed for fenoxycarb (1), an insect growth regulator (IGR). The parent molecule [ethyl 2-(4-phenoxyphenoxy)ethylcarbamate] was derivatized at several positions to obtain haptens (2-5) that were used to produce protein conjugates and rabbit(More)
We recently reported that ANG II inhibits NBCe1 current and surface expression in Xenopus laevis oocytes (Perry C, Blaine J, Le H, and Grichtchenko II. Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 290: F417-F427, 2006). Here, we investigated mechanisms of ANG II-induced changes in NBCe1 surface expression. We showed that the PKC inhibitor GF109203X blocks and EGTA reduces(More)
A competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for fenoxycarb was adapted for quantitative detection of this insect growth regulator in various environmental, agricultural, food and biological matrices. Environmental samples were taken from soil and surface waters in Hungary. The ELISA enabled fenoxycarb detection in surface waters in the 1.1-125(More)
This paper is interested in shape representation and recognition with a particular target to technical and line-drawing symbols. Specifically, two sorts of directional and spatial features are explored to construct a new descriptor for symbol matching and recognition. These features are rotation-, translation- and scale-invariant and can be extracted with a(More)
