This study examined whether epidermal growth factor (EGF) inhibits Ca(2+)-dependent Cl- secretion by T84 cells. Basolateral EGF inhibited Cl- secretion induced by carbachol or thapsigargin, without blocking the rise in intracellular Ca2+. Studies have shown that carbachol renders T84 cells refractory to subsequent stimulation by thapsigargin, an effect(More)
Previous studies have indicated that Ca(2+)-dependent Cl- secretion across monolayers of T84 epithelial cells is subject to a variety of negative influences that serve to limit the overall extent of secretion. However, the downstream membrane target(s) of these inhibitory influences had not been elucidated. In this study, nuclide efflux techniques were used(More)
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) and carbachol both inhibit calcium-activated chloride secretion by the human colonic epithelial cell line, T84. Although the inhibitory mechanism for the carbachol effect involves the 3,4,5,6-isomer of inositol tetrakisphosphate, the mechanisms responsible for the EGF effect have not yet been fully elucidated. Here, we studied(More)
We have examined the role of tyrosine phosphorylation in regulation of calcium-dependent chloride secretion across T84 colonic epithelial cells. The calcium-mediated agonist carbachol (CCh, 100 microM) stimulated a time-dependent increase in tyrosine phosphorylation of a range of proteins (with molecular masses ranging up to 180 kDa) in T84 cells. The(More)
IFN-gamma inhibits intestinal Cl(-) secretion, in part via downregulation of CFTR and Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase activity and expression, but the proximal signaling events were unknown. We have shown that transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) inhibits calcium-activated Cl(-) secretion, and effects of IFN-gamma in other systems are mediated via EGF family(More)
BACKGROUND To describe utilisation of health care services and motives for consultation in Primary Care in the native and the immigrant population, and compare this with the perception of primary care professionals. METHODS Data was collected on health care activity during the year 2006 for all people registered (N=86,966) in the 6 basic health care zones(More)
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) inhibits carbachol-induced chloride secretion in T(84) colonic epithelial cells and has been shown to activate phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase, leading to inhibition of a basolateral potassium conductance. We asked whether the inhibitory effect of EGF on secretion is due to activation of specific isoforms of protein kinase C(More)
D-Myo-inositol (3,4,5,6) tetrakisphosphate [Ins(3,4,5,6)P(4)] or phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase) activity acts to inhibit calcium-dependent chloride secretion in T84 colonic epithelial cells. To further distinguish between the contributions of these two signaling pathways to the inhibition of secretion, we studied effects of insulin, because the(More)
We estimate multivariate quantile models to measure the responses of the six main Latin American (LA) stock markets to a shock in the United States (US) stock index. We compare the regional responses with those of seven developed markets. In general, we document weaker tailcodependences between the US and LA than those between the US and the mature markets.(More)
