In C4 grasses belonging to the NADP-malic enzyme-type subgroup, malate is considered to be the predominant C4 acid metabolized during C4 photosynthesis, and the bundle sheath cell chloroplasts contain very little photosystem-II (PSII) activity. The present studies showed that Flaveria bidentis (L.), an NADP-malic enzyme-type C4 dicotyledon, had substantial(More)
Previous in vivo and in vitro studies have demonstrated that exposure of the brain to arginine vasopressin (AVP) can potentiate various responses to a second central challenge with AVP. To determine whether this sensitization is mediated by changes at the receptor level, we investigated the effects of AVP on the phosphoinositide metabolism in septal slices(More)
It is not clear whether hypercalcemia and hyperparathyroidism associated with lithium therapy are the result of an unmasking of preexisting disease or a direct effect of lithium on the parathyroid glands. To investigate this phenomenon, parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion and cytosolic calcium concentrations [( Ca]i) were measured in normal and(More)
Vision relies on the transmission of information from the eye to central brain regions via the activity of retinal ganglion cells. This activity exhibits stimulus-dependent variations in firing rate as well as in the precise timing of spikes, which can be strongly correlated between neurons[1]. It is still unclear, however, how these response features(More)
