Although enhancement of GnRH-stimulated luteinizing hormone (LH) release by estradiol (E2) has been established, it is not known at what stages of the process of transduction E2 acts. We investigated the release of LH in response to GnRH and to Bay K 8644, an activator of L-type calcium channels, in a culture of pituitary cells obtained from ovariectomized(More)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-stimulated changes in the cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) were studied in gonadotrophs cultured from 3-week ovariectomized rat pituitaries. One animal was used per cell preparation. [Ca2+]i was monitored in individual gonadotrophs by dual emission microspectrofluorimetry, using Indo-1 as the intracellular(More)
1 The present paper illustrates formulation and implementation of a simple constant strain triangle with embedded displacement discontinuity intended for the modeling of localized damage. To arrive at such an element the partition of unity property of finite element shape functions is used to introduce the displacement discontinuity into the finite element(More)
