The effect of sustained stress on the plasma CRH level was studied in rats subjected to the stress of laparotomy conducted under ether anesthesia or water immersion-restraint. The role of AVP in ACTH secretion during such stress was also investigated. Concentrations of CRH and AVP in the hypothalamus, extrahypothalamic tissues and peripheral blood were(More)
Mutations in the guanine nucleotide binding protein alpha subunit (Gs alpha) have been found in patients with pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP). We have screened the Gs alpha gene for mutations in a Japanese patient with this disorder and identified a novel 4-base pair deletion in exon 7 in codons 189-190. This deletion causes a frameshift and if synthesis of(More)
We reported earlier that the plasma level of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) remained high 120 min after the onset of such strong sustained stress as ether-laparotomy or water immersion-restraint, which reflected the persistent secretion of CRH from the hypothalamic median eminence (ME). We investigated the change in plasma CRH during water(More)
The floating cells in the anterior chamber and a trabeculectomy specimen obtained from a 63-year-old man with phacolytic glaucoma were observed under a light microscope and a transmission electron microscope. Numerous macrophages which had phagocytized degenerated lens material (phacolytic cells) were observed in the anterior chamber, and free-floating(More)
Adult specimens of three species of oceanic sea skater, Halobates sericeus Eschscholtz, Halobates micans Eschscholtz, and Halobates sp. were placed in one of four solutions of different salinity (sea water [35-36‰], sea water : fresh water = 2:1 [23-24‰], sea water : fresh water = 1:2 [11-13‰], and fresh water [0‰]) after collection from the temperate and(More)
The authors experienced one case of malignant melanoma of the superior palpebral conjunctiva and the inferior palpebral skin, originating from benign acquired melanosis of the bulbar conjunctiva which developed in a 48-year-old man. Orbital exenteration including superior and inferior palpebrae was performed, and the removed tissue was examined by light and(More)
OBJECTIVE Thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) is a serum protein that transports 75% of circulating thyroxine. Eleven naturally occurring mutations in the human TBG gene have been identified, ten of which alter the properties of the molecule. Three of these mutations produce complete deficiency of TBG (TBG-CD) and four are associated with a second mutation in(More)
