N-acylphosphatidylethanolamines (NAPEs) are a relatively abundant group of plasma lipids of unknown physiological significance. Here, we show that NAPEs are secreted into circulation from the small intestine in response to ingested fat and that systemic administration of the most abundant circulating NAPE, at physiologic doses, decreases food intake in rats(More)
Bacteria have been documented to translocate from the gut to systemic organs, yet the exact route by which they translocate remains unclear. To determine the route of bacterial translocation, different dosages of zymosan were used to activate complement and cause systemic inflammation. At a zymosan dose of 0.1 mg/g, bacteria translocated only to the(More)
Integrated human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) DNA was directly visualized on metaphase chromosomes in the two human cervical carcinoma cell lines SiHa and CaSki by fluorescence in situ hybridization with a biotinylated DNA probe (7.9 kb). The fluorescence intensities of hybridization signals from single copies and dispersed clusters of integrated HPV-16(More)
