gamma-Aminobutyric acid type B receptors (GABABRs) are involved in the fine tuning of inhibitory synaptic transmission. Presynaptic GABABRs inhibit neurotransmitter release by down-regulating high-voltage activated Ca2+ channels, whereas postsynaptic GABABRs decrease neuronal excitability by activating a prominent inwardly rectifying K+ (Kir) conductance(More)
A gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)(B) receptor (named GABA(B)R1) has been recently cloned in the rat and human brain and two variants generated by alternative RNA splicing were identified. In the present study, we addressed the question as to whether these variants contribute to the diversity of GABA(B) receptor-mediated physiological responses and constitute(More)
Not only parathyroid hormone (PTH) but also parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) may play a role in calcium and phosphate homeostasis in ruminants. In five trained sheep, each with a large rumen cannula, the isolated rumen wash technique was used to measure electrolyte absorption rates from the rumen. After two control periods of measurement, 20(More)
A case involving a 65-year-old man with Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia (WMG) which transformed into immunoblastic sarcoma is presented. Surface IgM (kappa) was demonstrated on the plasmacytoid lymphocytes of the bone marrow at presentation as well as on the less differentiated cells of the immunoblastic sarcoma. Serum IgM levels fell at the time that(More)
The transport of Mg across an isolated preparation of rumen epithelium of sheep was studied using different Mg salts: MgCl2. Mg aspartate, mg pidolate, and Mg-EDTA. The measurements were made under short circuit conditions in Ussing chambers. The obtained results showed that Mg transport rates did not differ significantly between MgCl2, Mg aspartate, and Mg(More)
