Efflux of monocaroxylates like lactate, pyruvate, and ketone bodies from astrocytes through monocarboxylate transporter 4 (MCT4) supplies the local neuron population with metabolic intermediates to meet energy requirements under conditions of increased demand. Disruption of this astroglial-neuron metabolic coupling pathway may contribute to epileptogenesis.(More)
Experiments were performed to determine the effect of amniotic fluid dilution on the rate of intramembranous absorption. Seven fetal sheep at 118 days gestation were instrumented with a shunt between the trachea and esophagus and arterial and venous vascular catheters. In addition, the urachus of the fetal bladder was ligated, and a catheter was placed in(More)
Expression and role of sodium glucose cotransporter (SGLT-1) in tubulogenesis were investigated during renal development. A mouse SGLT-1 cDNA was cloned, and it had substantial homology with human and rat forms. Four mRNA transcripts were detected, which differed in size from other species. SGLT-1 transcripts were detected at day 13 of gestation, and their(More)
