Our entering freshmen have little experience with the underlying concepts of computer science and information technology, and they are not familiar with the process of absorbing new information through listening and reading and cooperating with other well-trained individuals to increase their knowledge and skills in a subject. Simply making group(More)
Various combinations of cytokines have profoundly different effects on inhibition of apoptosis and stimulation of self-renewal division of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) in short-term, ex vivo culture. Our goal was to quantitate expansion of cells with a primitive CD34+ Thy-1+ phenotype, as well as cell cycling, division history, differentiation, and(More)
A simple one-step filtration method is described to separate larger adipocytes from the smaller ones by using nylon screen (52 microM pore size). Adipocytes retained on the screen were larger (60-90 micrometers) compared with those that passed through the screen. By using this separation technique, activities of various enzymes involved in triacylglycerol(More)
The conversion of [14C]-labeled compounds such as acetate, glucose, pyruvate and palmitate into CO2, glyceride-glycerol, glyceride fatty acids and total lipids was monitored in the average and matching adipocyte (with respect to size) preparations from young (6-9 wk) and old (age 56-60 wk) male Sprague-Dawley rats. The average cell size populations from(More)
Thioredoxin expression within the reproductive tissues of the female mouse was analysed during the oestrous cycle stages of dioestrus, oestrus and metoestrus by Western blot analyses and immunocytochemistry. From Western blot analyses the expression of thioredoxin was found to be increased in oestrus compared to dioestrus and metoestrus. Localisation of(More)
[14C]Acetate incorporation into different lipid fractions was measured as a function of adipocyte size by using the larger and smaller adipocytes derived from Sprague-Dawley rats. In both the larger and smaller adipocytes, [14C]acetate was incorporated into phospholipid, diacylglycerol, free fatty acid and triacylglycerol fractions. Although the rates of(More)
The properties of Mg2+-dependent and Mg2+-independent phosphatidate phosphohydrolase activities were investigated in different subcellular fractions in rat adipose tissue. Phosphatidate phosphohydrolase activity was measured in the presence of aqueous dispersed phosphatidate as substrate, and the release of inorganic phosphate was taken as a measure of(More)
