The purpose of this study was to establish the time course and magnitude of changes in 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D receptor activity in rat mammary gland during pregnancy and lactation and to correlate these changes with casein production and alkaline phosphatase activity. Marked increases in both 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 receptor and alkaline phosphatase(More)
Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) were measured in 198 patients with renal dysfunction [132 men: median (range) age 66.1 (8.2-90.3) years]. cTnT was measured by two methods: ELISA and Enzymun (Boehringer Mannheim UK, Lewes, UK), both with a detection limit of 0.05 microgram/L in 179 and 78 patients, respectively. cTnI was measured in(More)
1. Alkaline phosphatase activity in NMU-induced rat mammary tumours was compared with activity in normal and lactating mammary gland. 2. Both tumour and normal mammary alkaline phosphatase were sensitive to heat inactivation and inhibition by phenylalanine. 3. Specific activity of enzyme in tumours was comparable to normal mammary tissue. 4. Mammary gland(More)
Three sandwich enzyme immunoassays were used to evaluate serum from 93 women: 20 normal, 20 with benign breast disease, 22 with primary and 31 with recurrent breast cancer. Using the three assays, breast cancer mucin enzyme immunoassay (BCM-EIA) carcinoma-associated mucin antigen (CAM) 26 and CAM 29, both singly and in combination, we were unable to(More)
