Constitutive activation of distal renal epithelial sodium channel (Liddle's syndrome), defect in 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity (AME) and unequal(More)
We described before that the chromatographically purified "human plasma ultrafiltrate bioactive fraction" (humoral factor tentatively denoted as tumor basic protein--TBP) regulates in vitro release of ACTH from pituitary adenomas stimulating the hormone release from the tumors showing low hormonal activity in vitro and inhibiting ACTH production in vitro by(More)
