The natural polyamines induce histamine release from rat peritoneal mast cells (RPMC) in a concentrationand energy-dependent process with a rank order of(More)
In vivo, cartilage has a limited regenerative capacity. Clinical replacement strategies require a suitable cell source to provide a stable chondrocyte phenotype without hypertrophic cartilage development, while being broadly available, and harboring a high proliferative potential. Thus, the aim of this study was to analyze the proliferation and chondrogenic(More)
Hepatic peroxisomal changes, caused by treating male Fischer 344 rats with di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, were examined by measuring activities of enzymes involved in peroxisomal beta-oxidation, catalase and levels of the 80,000 Da peroxisome proliferation-associated polypeptide. Acyl CoA oxidase activity was increased 2.5-fold after 1 day, and 8-fold after 14(More)
Der Erfolg der Hornhauttransplantation hängt in hohem Maße von der Qualität des eingesetzten Transplantats ab. Dabei spielen verschiedene Faktoren eine entscheidende Rolle wie ein einwandfreies Stroma ohne optisch relevante, zentral liegende Trübungen oder Veränderungen (z. B.
