The effects of life-long food restriction on spatial memory in young and aged Fischer 344 rats measured in the eight-arm radial and the Morris water mazes
The effect of life-long 60% ad lib food restriction on performance in two tasks involving spatial memory, the eight-arm radial maze and the Morris water maze, was studied in young and aged FischerExpand

Composition of serum very-low-density and high-density lipoproteins in diabetes.
We examined the cholesterol/protein ratio and the apoprotein composition of serum lipoproteins in a randomly selected population of maturity-onset diabetics and in a group of nondiabetics of similarExpand

Volume and outcome of coronary artery bypass graft surgery: are more and less the same?
BACKGROUND Despite the relatively high degree of regionalization of coronary artery bypass graft surgery in Canada, support is expressed for even further centralization of this procedure. The findingExpand

Effect of diet restriction on glucose metabolism and insulin responsiveness in aging rats
The effect of age and of prolonged caloric restriction on glucose tolerance and insulin responsiveness has been studied in male Fischer 344 rats. Beginning at 1 month of age dietary intake of anExpand

Effect of exercise on glucose and insulin utilization in the forearm.
Glucose and insulin utilization by forearm muscle was examined at rest and during exercise. Care was taken to have a steady state with regard to arterial plasma concentrations for 1 hr prior to asExpand

The effects of acute and life-long food restriction on basal and stress-induced serum corticosterone levels in young and aged rats.
The effects of short term (1-month) and life-long 60% ad libitum food restriction on the adrenocortical response to restraint stress were compared in young and aged Fischer 344 rats. In ratsExpand

Interaction of Native and Cell‐modified Low Density Lipoprotein with Collagen Gel
We have examined the binding of native and cell-modified low density lipoprotein (LDL) to gels of Type I collagen. Diffusion of native125I-LDL Into the collagen gel was slow, reaching equilibriumExpand

Enhancement of glycogen concentrations in primary cultures of rat hepatocytes exposed to glucose and fructose.
Glycogen synthesis in isolated hepatocytes can occur from glucose both by a direct mechanism and by an indirect process in which glucose is first metabolized to C3 intermediates before use forExpand
