Colchicine was administered intraperitoneally to rats in doses which are known to inhibit the basal migration of lysosomes in uterine epithelial cells. The fractional volume of microtubules in the cells was then measured by morphometry. Colchicine at 0.10 mg/kg reduced the microtubule content of the cells from 0.22% down to 0.15%, and 1.0 mg/kg reduced(More)
T HE TEMPORAL COURSE of granulocyte development has been rather well characterized.1’2 However, there is still a good deal of uncertainty about the behavior of the mature granulocytes in bone marrow. Interpretation of the chronology of appearance of mature cells after DNA labeling is open to question because of the unavoidable contamination of marrow(More)
Anabolic-androgenic steroids are some of the most frequently detected drugs in amateur and professional sports. Doping control laboratories have developed numerous assays enabling the determination of administered drugs and/or their metabolic products that allow retrospectives with respect to pharmacokinetics and excretion profiles of steroids and their(More)
Doping control samples are normally collected under non-sterile conditions and sometimes, storage and transportation are influenced by parameters such as the temperature. Therefore, microbial contamination and subsequent alteration of a sample's composition are possible. Studies regarding sample collection in cattle breeding have already shown enzymatic(More)
We have developed an improved method for the production of liposomal gadolinium-DTPA (Gd-DTPA). The ionophore A23187 facilitates the uptake of externally added Gd into the interior aqueous space of a unilamellar lipid vesicle, where it is chelated by passively entrapped DTPA to form the Gd-DTPA chelate in situ. The presence of a pH gradient across the(More)
