Confluent cultures of bovine aortic endothelium in serum-free medium were exposed to increasing concentrations (10(-6)-10(-4) M) of freshly prepared erythrocyte lysates (primarily hemoglobin). Hemoglobin increased endothelin-1 secretion into the medium in a dose-dependent manner after 24 hours. The enhanced secretion of endothelin-1 in response to(More)
The placental isoenzyme of alkaline phosphatase is characterized by heat stability (56° C for 30 min). This paper describes a new technique for the forensic diagnosis of pregnancy from blood stains, based on the fact that in serum of pregnant women in the latter half of pregnancy the heat-stable alkaline phosphatase activity rises markedly. In this study(More)
