Our time in Daniel Arnon's Department of Cell Physiology overlapped by one month, September 1963. One of us (KT) was ending a three year postdoctoral appointment and the other (BBB) was beginning an association that was to last more than thirty years. We describe below principal discoveries and selected contributions from the period we were associated with(More)
In order to evaluate the validity of using fructose in total parenteral nutrition, the mechanism of the resultant decrease in hepatic ATP content on fructose loading was examined using perfused rat livers. The ATP content of the livers perfused with fructose at a concentration of 2 mM or less, was about 2.8 μmol/g liver. Perfusion with 3 mM and 5 mM(More)
The maximal removal rate of indocyanine green (ICG Rmax) is considered to be an important parameter of hepatic function. However, the method of analysis has some flaws, and an abnormal value is obtained for about 15% of patients. We developed a new method of measuring the ICG Rmax with a clearance meter (RK-1000) that continuously measured the ICG(More)
