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)
Determining the mechanism of charge transport through native DNA remains a challenge as different factors such as measuring conditions, molecule conformations, and choice of technique can significantly affect the final results. In this contribution, we have used a new approach to measure current flowing through isolated double-stranded DNA molecules, using(More)
