The effects of prostaglandins E1, E2, F1alpha, and F2alpha on prolactin and growth hormone synthesis and secretion were studied in cultured rat pituitary cells. Total extracellular accumulation of prolactin was measured by radioimmunoassay. When hormone synthesis was studied, the cells were cultured in the presence of [3H]leucine for the last hour of each(More)
We have studied the relationship between the prolaction (PRL) release induced by thyroliberin (TRH) and theophylline and the formation and inactivation of adenosine 3', 5'-cyclic monophosphate (cyclic AMP) in cultured rat-pituitary cells (GH3 cells). TRH, which stimulated prolactin release, increased cyclic AMP formation and stimulated transiently both the(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated a marked change in the metabolism of phospholipids (PL) after activation of resting B lymphocytes with anti-immunoglobulin (anti-Ig). In this study we examined PL metabolism in highly purified trinitrophenyl (TNP)-binding B cells after their activation with various forms of TNP-carrier protein. Such cells show similar(More)
From cytoplasm of rat pituitary GH4C1 tumour cells, anti prolactin anti-serum precipitates a polypeptide with apparent molecular weight of 75.000 in addition to prolactin. In vitro translation of size fractionated RNA shows that a 82.000 molecular weight PRL-like polypeptide is encoded by a mRNA larger than the 1 kb prolactin mRNA. Northern blot analysis(More)
Macrofungal species richness generally increases with forest continuity as does the richness of so-called ancient forest plant species (AFS). Based on this assumption, we examined the ability of AFS to indicate macrofungal diversity in six study areas covering a range of elevations and environments in the Czech Republic. In total, we used data from 106(More)
The VR-1 sparrow reactor is an experimental nuclear facility for training, student education and teaching purposes. The sparrow reactor is an educational platform for the basic experiments at the reactor physic and dosimetry. The aim of this article is to describe the new experimental equipment EMK310 features and possibilities for neutron detection by(More)
