  • 1 July 1991
The role of sex hormones on parietal cell function and number was studied in the rat. Ovariectomy significantly increased parietal cell mass (from 18.26 +/- 0.16 x 10(6) to 24.14 +/- 0.89 x 10(6] asExpand

Gastric acid secretion and parietal cell mass: effects of thyroidectomy and thyroxine.
The role of thyroid hormones on parietal cell function and number was studied in the rat. Chronic administration of thyroxine (6-8 micrograms/100 g body wt/day) for 35 days significantly increasedExpand

Effect of malnourishment on intestinal glucose and fluid transport in rats.
Intestinal fluid and glucose transport in malnourished rats was investigated using the everted sac method on the small intestine. Malnourishment significantly (P < 0.001) reduced the serosal fluidExpand

Influence of the thyroid state on the intrinsic contractile properties of the bladder muscle.
The role of thyroid hormones on the contractile responses of the isolated rat urinary bladder strips to acetilcholine and potassium chloride (in depolarising Tyrode solution) was examined. ChronicExpand

The effects of thyroidectomy and thyroxine on the reactivity of rat uterine muscle to electrical stimulation in vitro
Abstract The effects of thyroidectomy and thyroxine on the reactivity of rat uterine muscle to electrical stimulation in vitro was studied in adult albino Wistar-strain rats. Thyroidectomy decreasedExpand
