pH recovery in response to addition of and removal from NH4Cl was examined using 2',7'-bis(2-carboxy-ethyl)-5(6)-carboxyfluorescein fluorescence in primary cultures of inner medullary collecting duct (IMCD) cells from rat kidneys. In 0 K+, pH recovery rate was 0.012 +/- 0.010 U/min; in 5 mM K+, the recovery rate was greater at 0.065 +/- 0.013 U/min (P =(More)
We have previously reported that exposing the vegetative plasmodia stage of Physarum polycephalum to either individual or simultaneously applied electric and magnetic fields (45-75 Hz, 0.14-2.0 G, and 0.035-0.7 V/m) lengthens their mitotic cycle, depresses their rate of reversible shuttle streaming, and lowers their respiration rate. In this article we(More)
Pulsed magnetic fields have been used to enhance healing of bone fractures and purportedly of lesions in soft tissue. However, their mechanism of action is poorly understood. We report changes in the plasma membrane of a nonadherent mammalian cell line, U937, which was exposed to a 25-pps magnetic field for 48 hours. Aqueous polymer two-phase partition(More)
One essential functionality of a modern operating system is to accurately account for the resource usage of the underlying hardware. This is especially important for computing systems that operate on battery power, since energy management requires accurately attributing resource uses to processes. However, components such as sensors, actuators and(More)
The mechanism for increased Na+ retention in the nephrotic syndrome is unknown. To determine if Na+ transport systems in the proximal tubule might be affected by filtered proteins, mouse cortical tubule cells grown in defined medium were exposed to concentrations of bovine serum albumin (BSA) ranging from 0.01 to 0.5%. Activity of the Na(+)-glucose(More)
