Mechanisms of acid-evoked CGRP release from gastric afferent nerves were investigated in rat antral mucosal/submucosal tissues. Low pH (pH 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0) stimulated antral CGRP release significantly and dose-dependently from rat antral fragments. Removal of extracellular calcium from the incubation medium resulted in significant inhibition (59%, P <(More)
Transgenic maize expressing luciferase under the control of the mudrB terminal inverted repeat promoter (TIRB) of the MuDR transposon was assayed for transgene expression in active and inactive Mutator lines. We find that active MuDR elements increase TIRB-luciferase expression by 2- to 10-fold, relative to nonMuDR or silenced MuDR lines, in embryonic(More)
The membranes of healthy lymphocytes normally resist hydrolysis by secretory phospholipase A(2). However, they become susceptible during the process of apoptosis. Previous experiments have demonstrated the importance of certain physical changes to the membrane during cell death such as a reduction in membrane lipid order and exposure of phosphatidylserine(More)
The ability of exogenous calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) to regulate gastric somatostatin and gastrin messenger RNA was studied in vitro in rat antral mucosal/submucosal tissues. Somatostatin and gastrin mRNA were quantified by Northern and dot blot hybridization and regulatory peptides were measured by radioimmunoassay. Incubation of antral tissues(More)
Mab 113F4, a monoclonal antibody recognizing an antigen in the outer synaptic layer of the chick neural retina, also recognizes an antigen appearing in all three germ layers of the gastrulating chick embryo. However, as neurulation proceeds, the antigen is down-regulated in three distinct patterns. First, the antigen is lost specifically from those trunk(More)
Mechanisms underlying the propensity of latent lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) to relapse are poorly understood. In this study, we show how differential expression of a network of extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules and their interacting proteins contributes to risk of relapse in distinct LUAD subtypes. Overexpression of the hyaluronan receptor HMMR in primary(More)
