Adiponectin is an adipokine with insulin-sensitising actions in vertebrates. Its receptors, AdipoR1 and AdipoR2, are PAQR-type proteins with 7-transmembrane domains and topologies reversed that of GPCR's, i.e. their C-termini are extracellular. We identified three adiponectin receptor homologs in the nematode C. elegans, named paqr-1, paqr-2 and paqr-3.(More)
Gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP; mammalian bombesin) may be involved in the neuroendocrine regulation of pituitary hormone secretion. We investigated the effect of GRP on ACTH secretion in conscious male rats. GRP (7-700 pmol) stimulated ACTH secretion dose-dependently after intracerebroventricular (icv) administration but had no effect after iv(More)
For Glioblastoma (GBM) patients, a number of anti-neoplastic strategies using specifically targeting drugs have been tested; however, the effects on survival have been limited. One explanation could be treatment resistance due to redundant signaling pathways, which substantiates the need for combination therapies. In GBM, both the epidermal growth factor(More)
Promoting community living for all people, regardless of age or disability, often challenges conventional thinking and policymaking. One major state policy area that requires new thinking and potential action is the extent to which a state's nurse practice laws permit workers who are not registered nurses to help consumers with their health maintenance(More)
