Control of sodium and potassium transport in the cortical collecting duct of the rat. Effects of bradykinin, vasopressin, and deoxycorticosterone.
Several factors interact to maintain precise control of electrolyte transport in the mammalian cortical collecting duct. We have studied the effects of deoxycorticosterone, arginine vasopressin, andExpand

Facilitation of phospholipase A2 activity by mastoparans, a new class of mast cell degranulating peptides from wasp venom.
The effect of mastoparan, Ile-Asn-Leu-Lys-Ala-Leu-Ala-Ala-Leu-Ala-Lys-Lys-Ile-LeuNH2, and related peptides on the release of arachidonic acid from egg yolk lecithin liposomes, rat peritoneal mastExpand

Effects of vasopressin and bradykinin on anion transport by the rat cortical collecting duct. Evidence for an electroneutral sodium chloride transport pathway.
Our previous studies in cortical collecting ducts isolated from rat kidneys have shown that vasopressin increases both sodium absorption and potassium secretion, while bradykinin inhibits sodiumExpand

Urinary Kallikrein Excretion in Normal Man: Relationships to Sodium Intake and Sodium‐Retaining Steroids
The urinary excretion of kallikrein, a renal enzyme that cleaves the potent vasodilator kinin, kallidin, from kininogen, was measured in normal volunteers by three different assays, one of which wasExpand

Regulation of postocclusive hyperemia by endogenously synthesized prostaglandins in the dog heart.
Experiments were performed to evaluate the role of prostaglandin synthesis in the regulation of coronary blood flow in dog hearts. The left main coronary artery was cannulated and flow measured bothExpand

Bombolitins, a new class of mast cell degranulating peptides from the venom of the bumblebee Megabombus pennsylvanicus.
Five structurally related heptadecapeptides rich in hydrophobic amino acids have been discovered in the venom of the bumblebee Megabombus pennsylvanicus. We have named them bombolitin IExpand

Hageman factor fragment inhibitor in corn seeds: purification and characterization.
Abstract A specific, potent inhibitor of Hageman factor fragment (HFf) was isolated from sweet corn kernels. Three variants with pI's of 5.1, 6.3, and 7.7, and Mr 11,000–14,000 were found. The cornExpand
