We measured the masses of inositol 1,4,5 trisphosphate (Ins(1,4,5)P3) and diacylglycerol (DAG) in hepatocytes in response to both epidermal growth factor (EGF) and vasopressin. EGF at 25 nM did not alter Ins(1,4,5)P3 content of hepatocytes. However, the combination of 100 nM EGF concentration and incubation with lithium did increase Ins(1,4,5)P3 content.(More)
OBJECTIVES To purify and characterize pepsinogens in equine gastric mucosa. SAMPLE POPULATION Stomachs collected from 2 healthy horses at necropsy. PROCEDURE After collection, stomachs were placed immediately in ice before storage at -48 C. After slow thawing, the mucosa was scraped off while the tissue was immersed in 0.1M potassium phosphate (pH 7.4)(More)
We present here a radiochemical enzymatic endpoint assay for the guanine nucleotides GTP and GDP that is suitable for use with cell extracts. The major coupling enzyme used is phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase purified from chicken liver. The ancillary coupling enzyme, aspartate aminotransferase, was used to generate a low steady-state concentration of(More)
