Skin ligaments (SL) (L. retinacula cutis) are present extensively in the face, hands, feet, and in breast tissue, but have seldom been reported elsewhere in the body. The traditional histological view of the subcutaneous region is that it comprises a matrix of loose connective tissue devoid of fibrous specializations. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Several vasoactive substances influence glomerular function in vivo and alter glomerular surface area and prostaglandin (PG) synthesis in vitro. Leukotrienes (LT) LTC4 and LTD4 may also influence glomerular function in vivo and in the isolated perfused kidney. We therefore compared the effects of LT with those of angiotensin II (ANG II), arginine(More)
Recent evidence suggests that dopamine may alter kidney function by actions not only in the renal vasculature but also at the glomerular-mesangial level. We studied this phenomenon by examining the ability of dopamine to antagonize the contractile properties of angiotensin II in isolated rat glomeruli and cultured mesangial cells. In isolated rat glomeruli(More)
Enhanced prostaglandin production is postulated to contribute to altered vascular reactivity and glomerular hyperfiltration in early insulin-deficient diabetes mellitus. Rats with streptozocin-induced diabetes (STZ-D) show glomerular hyperfiltration and develop renal disease. BB rats with genetic diabetes (BB-D) also hyperfilter but have only minor renal(More)
