BACKGROUND It is hypothesized that decreased capillarization of limb skeletal muscle is implicated in the decreased exercise tolerance in COPD patients. We have recently demonstrated decreased number of capillaries per muscle fibre (CAF) but no changes in CAF in relation to fibre area (CAFA), which is based on the diffusion distance between the capillary(More)
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) is an islet neuropeptide with potent insulinotropic action. The current study investigates PACAP expression in normal human and rat pancreatic islets, and whether it is altered in diabetic state. To that end, PACAP immunoreactivity was studied by immunofluorescence methods enhanced by the catalyzed(More)
