A cross-sectional European survey investigated the prevalence of night-time symptoms in COPD to evaluate the level of disconnect between physician and patient perceptions of the presence of night-time symptoms, and to compare the characteristics of patients(More)
Tobacco plants that are somatic mosaics for expression of a cytokinin-synthesizing gene have viviparous leaves. Such a formation of shoots in an abnormal position represents a significant deviation from the usual organization of the plant body where a central axis produces shoots only in the axils of lateral leaf appendages and according to a precise(More)
Adult female Zucker lean and obese rats were treated for 14 days with 3.5 nm/kg oleoyl-estrone (OE) in liposomes (Merlin-2) through continuous i.v. injection with osmotic minipumps. Rat wt. and food intake were measured daily. On days 0, 3, 6, 10, and 14, groups of rats were killed and their hypothalamic nuclei [lateral preoptic (LPO), median preoptic(More)
Female Zucker lean and obese rats were treated for 14 days with 3.5 micromol/kg oleoyl-estrone (OE) in liposomes (Merlin-2). After 0, 3, 6, 10, and 14 days of treatment, the rats were killed and hypothalamic nuclei (lateral preoptic, median preoptic, paraventricular, ventromedial and arcuate) were used for neuropeptide Y (NPY) radioimmunoassay. In 14 days,(More)
A group of female Zucker lean and obese rats was treated with 3.5 micromol/day kg of oleoyl-estrone in liposomes (OE) injected i.v. continuously for 14 days with inserted osmotic minipumps. Samples of liver were extracted on days 0, 3, 6, 10 and 14 and the expression of corticosterone-binding globulin (CBG) was determined by Northern blot. On the same(More)
