The present study demonstrates changes in rat brain glial metabolism during the acute phase of epilepsy. Status epilepticus (SE) was induced using the lithium-pilocarpine model. Glial metabolism was measured with (14)C-acetate. Local cerebral blood flow and glucose metabolism were also measured using (14)C-N-isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine (IMP) and(More)
The effect of the plant alkaloid ryanodine on the cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) function, which plays a major role in the regulation of intracellular calcium and thereby in the generation of force, was studied by determining oxalate-supported calcium uptake, steady-state calcium load, calcium permeability, intravesicular-free calcium and(More)
