We have shown that the 12/15-lipoxygenase (12/15-LO) product 12S-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid increases monocyte adhesion to human endothelial cells (EC) in vitro. Recent studies have implicated 12/15-LO in mediating atherosclerosis in mice. We generated transgenic mice on a C57BL/6J (B6) background that modestly overexpressed the murine 12/15-LO gene(More)
Circadian rhythmicity was studied by following the course of N-acetyl-transferase activity in the pineal glands of chickens in vitro. The results indicate (i) a daily change during day 1 of organ culture in constant dark that was dependent on the time the chickens were killed, (ii) equivocal persistence of the daily change in constant dark during 6 to 7(More)
Objective—We have previously reported increased monocyte adhesion to human aortic endothelial cells (HAECs) cultured in 25 mmol/L glucose (HG) compared with normal glucose (NG) (5.5 mmol/L). In this study, we explored mechanisms that contribute to increased monocyte adhesion by elevated glucose. Methods and Results—We found that HAECs cultured in HG have(More)
House sparrows, Passer domesticus, have circadian rhythms of locomotor activity that can be entrained by light-dark cycles. Perch-hopping activity was studied in house sparrows that were given control of their own lighting. In one series of experiments, sparrows permitted to select their own lighting most commonly chose circadian freerunning cycles. The(More)
We have shown that chronic elevated glucose (25 mm) increases monocyte adhesion to human aortic endothelial cells (EC). This increased adhesion is mediated primarily through induction of interleukin (IL)-8 via activation of the transcription factor AP-1 (Srinivasan, S., Yeh, M., Danziger, E. C., Hatley, M. E., Riggan, A. E., Leitinger, N., Berliner, J. A.,(More)
Atherosclerosis is a major complication of diabetes. Up to 16 weeks of age, the db/db mouse is insulin-resistant and hyperglycemic and is a good model of Type 2 diabetes. After approximately 16 weeks of age, the mice develop pancreatic beta cell failure that can progress to a Type 1 diabetes phenotype. We have previously shown that glucose increases(More)
Fetal femur length was measured with a linear-array, real-time ultrasound scanner in 145 uncomplicated gravid patients from 16 to 42 weeks' gestation. The data were analyzed by means of the method of least-squares linear regression. The results of this analysis generated the following equation: Y = -0.6809 + 0.2127 X (Y = femur length; X = gestational age.)(More)
