BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (A-FABP) is up-regulated in regenerated endothelial cells and modulates inflammatory responses in macrophages. Endothelial dysfunction accompanying regeneration is accelerated by hyperlipidaemia. Here, we investigate the contribution of A-FABP to the pathogenesis of endothelial dysfunction in the(More)
The hypothesis that lipolytic hormones reduce the mitochondrial electrical potential in rat white adipocytes via free fatty acids (FFA) was examined. Hormonal effects on plasma and mitochondrial membrane potentials were evaluated with [3H]triphenylmethylphosphonium (TPMP+) and 86Rb+. FFA generation was controlled by varying medium albumin concentrations. In(More)
The influence of neutrophilic stimulation on hemopoietic stem cells was studied in mice with tumor-induced neutrophilia. Transfusions of marrow cells from normal and neutrophilic tumor-bearing mice into lethally irradiated normal and tumor-bearing mice were performed. The number and the erythroid:granuloid (E:G) ratio of day 7 colonies in the recipient(More)
