Electron probe analysis has shown that the high Cl and K contents of smooth muscle reflect the generalized cytoplasmic distribution of these elements and are not due to sequestration in organelles. These findings, in agreement with other studies, indicate that ECl is less and EK more negative than the membrane potential. The susceptibility of cellular Na(More)
We evaluated the antipyretic, analgesic, and muscle relaxant activities of Pueraria isoflavonoids and their metabolites in mice. The glycosides daidzin and genistin significantly reduced fever induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Their metabolites, daidzein and p-ethylphenol, also significantly reduced fever induced by LPS. In addition, daidzin, daidzein,(More)
The effects of oral administration of vanadate, an oxidized form of vanadium, on glucose metabolism of the lens were studied in 5-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats rendered diabetic with streptozotocin (50 mg/kg, intraperitoneal injection). The rats were given 0.2g/l NaVO3-5 g/l NaCl solution in drinking water ad libitum for 2 weeks and biochemical(More)
