BACKGROUND Little information is currently available on the role of the gut microflora in modulating isoflavone bioavailability or on sex differences in isoflavone metabolism and bioavailability. OBJECTIVE We sought to determine whether chronic soy consumption influences isoflavone bioavailability as judged by plasma isoflavone concentrations and modified(More)
Stimulation of enzyme secretion in the pancreas on injection of a single dose of the cholinergic drug, pilocarpine, was associated with an increased incorporation of [2-(3)H]myoinositol into a lipid, which was previously characterized as phosphatidylinositol. Stimulation of enzyme secretion by hourly injection of the pancreozymin congener, caerulein, led to(More)

Field studies in the Northern Territory have located the Shield Shrimp Triops australiensis at localities substantially north of its known and predicted geographic distribution.
