The function of the bladder urothelium in modulating contractile responses of the underlying detrusor smooth muscle to muscarinic stimulation has been examined in the pig bladder. Saturation curves for [3H]-QNB binding demonstrated a greater muscarinic receptor density in the urothelium than in the detrusor smooth muscle. The presence of an intact(More)
Y1 adrenocortical cells respond to forskolin stimulation with increases in steroid secretion and change of shape. The rapid rounding of flat, adherent cells which occurs is known to involve dephosphorylation of the focal adhesion protein, paxillin. We have investigated the effects of a tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor, calpeptin (CP) on steroidogenesis and(More)
Genomic projects heavily depend on genome annotations and are limited by the current deficiencies in the published predictions of gene structure and function. It follows that, improved annotation will allow better data mining of genomes, and more secure planning and design of experiments. The purpose of the GeneFarm project is to obtain homogeneous,(More)
