Relative expression of cytochrome P450 isoenzymes in human liver and association with the metabolism of drugs and xenobiotics.
Cytochrome P450s play a central role in the metabolism and disposition of an extremely wide range of drugs and chemical carcinogens. Individual differences in the expression of these enzymes may beExpand

Present status of the application of cryopreserved hepatocytes in the evaluation of xenobiotics: consensus of an international expert panel.
Successful cryopreservation of freshly isolated hepatocytes would significantly decrease the need for freshly-procured livers for the preparation of hepatocytes for experimentation. Hepatocytes canExpand

Changes in adenosine sensitivity in the hippocampus of rats with streptozotocin‐induced diabetes
1 Hippocampal slices have been used to assess the sensitivity of the CNS to adenosine and γ‐aminobutyric acid (GABA) in diabetes. The effects of adenosine, 2‐chloroadenosine, GABA, muscimol andExpand

Sex steroid induced changes in hepatic enzymes.
Sex differences exist in steroid and xenobiotic metabolism in the liver of a number of species. In the rat, the differences are regulated through the hypothalamo-pituitary axis. The previouslyExpand

In Vitro Effect of Fenugreek Extracts on Intestinal Sodium-dependent Glucose Uptake and Hepatic Glycogen Phosphorylase A
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L. seed) is a food with traditional medicinal use in diabetes. Beneficial effects have been demonstrated in diabetic animals and both insulin-dependent andExpand

Prolactin-like immunoreactivity: localization in nerve terminals of rat hypothalamus.
Antibodies to rat prolactin were used in immunohistochemical studies of the hypothalamus and preoptic area of the rat. Evidence was obtained that a protein immunochemically related to prolactin wasExpand

Feminization of hepatic S metabolism in male rats with a transplanted (MtT/F4)
After transplantation of MtT/F4 pituitary tumor cells to male rats of the Fisher strain, the masculine type of hepatic steroid metabolism was changed into a feminine pattern of enzyme activities.Expand
