In recent years, many authors have investigated the possible antidiabetic effect of lactic acid bacteria. Lactobacillus species constitute a major part of the lactic acid bacteria group and have been found to exhibit beneficial effects on the development of diabetes and its complications. In the current study, we investigated the effects of newly(More)
Many neuropeptides, like angiotensins and vasopressin, are involved in the regulation of urinary bladder contractile activity. They activate the inositol-triphosphate signal pathway and increase intracellular calcium concentration. To determine the effect of ghrelin and extracellular calcium on the amplitude and force of angiotensin and vasopressin-mediated(More)
The aim of the present study was to elucidate the correlation between the Renin secretion and increased Plasma Calcium concentration and the role of Calmodulin in this process. Plasma Renin activity was determined radioimmunologically in 31 white rats, that were grouped as follows: group I - 7 controls loaded for 6 days perorally with 0.5 ml/200 g b.w.(More)
