Determinations of specific cytoplasmic receptors for 17 beta-estradiol (E), 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and progesterone (P) in normal and abnormal endometrium are reported. The standardization of methodology with particular emphasis on specificity trials is outlined. Receptors were present in all but one case, a moderately differentiated endometrial(More)
The cytoplasmic concentrations of ER, AR, PR, and GR were determined in 124 specimens of normal and abnormal endometrium and other uterine human tissues by the DCC technique. In the endometrial carcinoma group, we observed that pretreatment with MAP leads to low cellularity, higher amount of AR, lower amounts of detectable ER, GR, and PR: the last receptor(More)
Using the value of 0.24 fmoles/microgram DNA as breaking point between high and low binding capacities, we quantified receptors for 17 beta-estradiol (ER), 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHTR), progesterone (PR) and cortisol (CR) in normal and neoplastic human uterine tissues. Concerning receptors occurrence, significant relationships were observed between ER(More)
Security and reliability are major concerns for future power systems with distributed generation. A comprehensive evaluation of the risk associated with these systems must consider contingencies under normal environmental conditions and also extreme ones. Environmental conditions can strongly influence the operation and performance of distributed generation(More)
The cytoplasmic receptors for 17 beta-estradiol (ER), 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone (AR), progesterone (PR), and cortisol (GR) have been quantified in 36 specimens from the human ovary (13 disease-free, 5 benign, and 18 malignant) by a dextran-coated charcoal (DCC) technique. The occurrence of receptor-positive biopsies were: ER 46%, AR 85%, PR 54%, GR 92%,(More)
