Although thiazolidinediones suppress hyperglycemia in diabetic (NON x NZO)F1 males, these mice exhibit unusual sensitivity to drug-induced exacerbation of an underlying hepatosteatosis only rarely experienced in human patients. To establish the pharmacogenetic basis for this sensitivity, a panel of recombinant congenic strains (RCSs) with varying degrees of(More)
New Zealand obese (NZO/HlLt) male mice develop polygenic diabetes and altered phosphatidylcholine metabolism. The gene encoding phosphatidylcholine transfer protein (PC-TP) is sited within the support interval for Nidd3, a recessive NZO-derived locus on Chromosome 11 identified by prior segregation analysis between NZO/HlLt and NON/Lt. Sequence analysis(More)
Secretin is released from upper small intestinal mucosa to drive pancreatic secretion of fluid and bicarbonate and inhibit gastric acid secretion. Recently, we found that, in isolated, vascularly perfused rat stomach model, the inhibition of acid secretion by pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP) was mediated in part via local release(More)
