The purpose of this study was twofold: 1) to characterize the profile of colonic peptide YY (PYY) gene expression in rats and 2) to examine for potential trophic effects of PYY on the intestine in rats and mice. Expression of PYY mRNA (analyzed by Northern blotting and in situ hybridization) and PYY (analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography and(More)
The accumulation of hexachlorocyclohexane, one of the most commonly used chlorinated insecticides, was studied in a high-risk group of people who are exposed during its manufacturing process. The serum HCH concentration was estimated by quantitating its alpha, beta, gamma and delta-isomers with the help of GLC analysis. Exposed workers involved in(More)
Male Swiss mice, 6-8 weeks old, were given a diet containing technical-grade hexachlorocyclohexane (BHC) at 500 ppm continuously for 4, 6 and 8 months. After the completion of the scheduled exposure period, the males were sequentially mated with 2-3 untreated virgin females at weekly intervals for 8 weeks. The females were autopsied at mid-term pregnancy(More)
Inbred Swiss mice were fed hexachlorocyclohexane (BHC) at 500 ppm dose level in diet for 2, 4, 6 and 8 months. Later BHC was discontinued for 4 months and subsequently the animals were refed BHC for 1 month. Glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) and fructose-1,6-diphosphatase (FDPase) activity was studied at different time intervals accompanied with changes in(More)
This paper presents the design and implementation of an Event-Trigger-Rule-Based auction system called IntelliBid. A network of Knowledge Web Servers, each consisting of a Web server, an Event-Trigger-Rule (ETR) Server, an Event Engine, a Knowledge Profile Manager, and Bid Servers and their proxies constitutes IntelliBid. Together, they provide(More)
