The mechanism of the prolonged stimulatory influence of corticotropin (ACTH) on the capacity of adrenocortical cells to produce cortisol in response to ACTH and more specifically the role of 11 beta-hydroxylation, was studied on guinea-pig adrenocortical cells dispersed from control and ACTH-treated animals. As a result of the previous in vivo exposure to(More)
The effect of electrically induced auricular and ventricular tachycardia of various rates was studied in the anesthetized dog. When, the control heart ranging between 140 and 190 per minute, atrial tachycardia of a rate only slightly higher than the control rate was induced, a very temporary initial decrease in arterial blood pressure, cardiac output and(More)
The effect of trilostane and aminoglutethimide on steroidogenesis was studied on isolated guinea pig adrenocortical cells in order to verify whether, in addition to the inhibitory influence of trilostane on 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and isomerase and the inhibition by aminoglutethimide of pregnenolone formation, these inhibitors may also affect(More)
In closed-chest vagotomized dogs with alpha and beta adrenergic receptors blockade, ventilation with 100 per cent oxygen at atmospheric pressure did not modify the tension-time index nor the myocardial oxygen consumption. However, coronary blood flow decreased and coronary resistance increased significantly. A rise of the myocardialpO2 was not likely to be(More)
In closed-chest anaesthetized dogs, aminophylline was infused into the left circumflex coronary artery at a rate of 250 mug/min. When the heart rate was lower than 100 beats/min, infusion did not modify the left circumflex coronary blood flow and resistance. When the heart rate was elevated to an average of 153 +/- 6 beats/min by right atrial pacing,(More)
The effects of ketosis on the norepinephrine-induced high rates of cardiac uptake of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA = free fatty acids = FFA) and oxygen consumption were studied in anesthetized intact dogs. After a control infusion of norepinephrine (500 ng/kg.min into the left ventricle), the D(-) isomer or natural form of 3-hydroxybutyrate was infused(More)
