The human saphenous vein preincubated with [3H]noradrenaline was used to determine the pharmacological properties of the release-inhibiting presynaptic serotonin (5-HT) receptor on the sympathetic nerves. The overflow of tritium evoked by transmural electrical stimulation (2 Hz) was concentration-dependently inhibited by drugs known to stimulate 5-HT(More)
Immunoassays are routinely used as research tools to measure intracellular cAMP and cGMP concentrations. Ideally, this application requires antibodies with high sensitivity and specificity. The present work evaluates the cross-reactivity of commercially available cyclic nucleotide analogs with two non-radioactive and one radioactive cAMP and cGMP(More)
It is controversial whether the membranous (M) cells of the Peyer's patches represent a separate cell line or develop from enterocytes under the influence of lymphocytes on the domes. To answer this question, the crypts that produce the dome epithelial cells were studied and the distribution of M cells over the domes was determined in mice. The Ulex(More)
Metallosphaera sedula (Sulfolobales, Crenarchaeota) uses the 3-hydroxypropionate/4-hydroxybutyrate cycle for autotrophic carbon fixation. In this pathway, acetyl-coenzyme A (CoA) and succinyl-CoA are the only intermediates that can be considered common to the central carbon metabolism. We addressed the question of which intermediate of the cycle most(More)
Brush cells are specialised epithelial cells that are assumed to represent chemoreceptors of the digestive tract. They comprise a small population of the epithelial cells lining the intestine, possess a unique ultrastructure and, in many aspects, resemble the receptor cells of taste buds. To characterise glycoconjugates possibly involved in a sensory(More)
Melt-back etching is an effect that can occur for gallium (Ga) containing III/V semiconductors grown on Si. Since this effect influences interfaces between the two compounds and therefore the physical characteristics of the material composition, it is desirable to understand its driving forces. Therefore, we investigated Ga grown on Si (001) via metal(More)
