Arginine-vasopressin (AVP) is regarded as a potent stimulator of pituitary adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) secretion and participates therefore in the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis function in concert with the physiological activator of the axis, hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH). We examined the effects of AVP(More)
We have previously demonstrated that susceptibility of Lewis (LEW/N) rats to inflammatory disease, compared to relatively resistant Fischer (F344/N) rats, is related to deficient glucocorticoid counter-regulation of the immune response resulting from deficient corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) responsiveness to inflammatory and other stress mediators.(More)
We present a simple method to compute the transmission coefficient of a quantum system embedded between two conducting electrodes. Starting from the solution of the time-dependent Schrodinger equation, we demonstrate the relationship between the temporal evolution of the state vector, |ψ(t)>, initially localized on one electrode and the electronic(More)
The capture and transduction of energy in biological systems is clearly necessary for life, and nature has evolved remarkable macromolecular entities to serve these purposes. The Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) complex serves as an intermediate to transfer the energy from the chlorosome to the special pairs of different photo systems. Recent observations have(More)
Active Galactic Nuclei are considered as possible sites of cosmic ray acceleration and some of them have been observed as high energy gamma ray emitters (Blazars). There naturally comes an appealing idea that the acceleration of the highest energy cosmic rays in the AGNs has a signature in the form of gamma ray emission and high energy neutrino emission(More)
