1. gamma-Glutamyl-transpeptidase (gamma-GTP), present at low levels in the testis, seminal vesicle, prostate gland and epididymis in rat at 4 days of age, showed rapid developmental increases at the time of weaning. 2. Administration of nonylphenols (NP) to the neonatal male rat pup (from days 1 to 15) impaired the subsequent development of gamma-GTP in the(More)

Cholecystokinin-(CCK) like peptides have been measured in the brain and small intestine of ob/ob hyperglycaemic mice and lean littermates. CCK-like peptides were measured by radioimmunoassay employing an antiserum to CCK octapeptide (CCK 8) and gastrin 17 I125 label. Although this antiserum detects gastrin with equal affinity to CCK, concomitant assay of(More)

A radioimmunoassay for the measurement of immunoreactive secretin has been developed. The assay is specific and sensitive so that 2.8 fmol/ml can be measured. Basal secretin levels in man are generally undetectable and a protein-rich meal does not elicit a secretin response. However, the intraduodenal instillation of HCl leads to a prompt rise in(More)
This work examines whether microglia-conditioned medium (MCM) is beneficial in stressed spinal cord cells or tissues. MCM was separated into two fractions by 50 kDa molecular cut-off centrifugation. MCM not only promoted survival of neuronal and oligodendroglial cells but effectively reduced LPS stimulation in spinal cord cultures. We further utilized the(More)
LY221068, 5-[[3,5-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl)-4-hydroxy phenyl]methylene]-3-(dimethylamino)-4-thiazolidinone, and the monomethylamino analog, LY269415, are anti-oxidants and potent inhibitors of iron dependent lipid peroxidation and 5-lipoxygenase enzyme. Since oxygen radical species, lipid peroxides and products of the arachidonic acid cascade have been(More)
LY178002 (5-[3,5-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl)-4-hydroxyphenyl]methylene-4-thiazolidinone) and its N-methyl analog, LY256548, inhibit the enzymatic activity of phospholipase A2, 5-lipoxygenase and fatty acid cycloxygenase. They also inhibit leukotriene B4 production from human polymorphonuclear leukocytes stimulated with the calcium ionophore A23187. Since(More)
