IGF-II is the predominant IGF ligand regulating prenatal growth in all vertebrates, including humans, but its central role in placental development has confounded efforts to fully elucidate its functions within the embryo. Here we use a nonplacental model vertebrate (zebrafish) to interrogate the intraembryonic functions of IGF-II signaling. The zebrafish(More)
The transport of [3H]2-deoxyglucose by brain slices was studied. Cerebral cortex slices were incubated in vitro in the presence of [3H]2-deoxyglucose, or L-[3H]glucose as a marker for diffusion. Transport was defined as the difference between [3H]2DG uptake and L-[3H]glucose uptake. Half-maximal velocity was seen at 2.0 mM 2DG and [3H]2DG transport was not(More)
