The metabolism of branched-chain amino acids, branched-chain acyl derivatives, d-glucose, l-glutamate, and Mueller-Hinton medium was investigated to determine their effects on the growth, lipid composition, and antibiotic susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The unsaturated fatty acid content of the readily extractable lipids was altered by growth on(More)
The readily extractable lipids ofPseudomonas aeruginosa 015 were significantly altered by growth on branched-chain amino acids and their acyl derivatives as sole carbon source. These cultural conditions, especially growth on the acyl derivatives, resulted in decreased amounts of unsaturated fatty acids and concomitant increases in cyclopropyl acids. The(More)
Multiple injections of dobutamine, a selective adrenergic beta-1 receptor agonist, or isoproterenol, a nonselective beta receptor agonist, produced significant dose-dependent enlargement of the submandibular glands of male rats. The glandular enlargement induced by dobutamine or isoproterenol was characterized by significant increases in glandular protein(More)
In the present contribution a number of porous materials has been investigated with various porosities (75 % < ψ < 93 %), mean pore diameters (360 < δ50 < 50,000 nm), and pore size distributions which are partly narrow and partly wide spread. The effective thermal conductivities have been measured between 500 and 1000 K in nitrogen, helium, argon and a(More)
Improvements in pain management techniques in the last decade have had a major impact on the practice of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Gonyautoxin are phycotoxins, whose molecular mechanism of action is a reversible block of the voltage-gated sodium channels at the axonal level, impeding nerve impulse propagation. This study was designed to evaluate the(More)
Our study in unselected patients with diabetes was undertaken to determine the relation between glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and renal plasma flow (RPF) according to the patient's age. The diagnostic work-up was done with patients in unselected disease states because a classification of all systemic manifestations of the diabetes was not possible. The(More)
