Adenylyl cyclase in rat adipose cells is stimulated by ligands for Rs receptors (e.g. isoproterenol) and inhibited by ligands for Ri receptors (e.g. adenosine). In contrast, Rs receptors mediate inhibition and Ri receptors mediate augmentation of insulin-stimulated glucose transport activity by a process independent of changes in cellular cAMP-dependent(More)
Adenylate cyclase activity in purified rat adipocyte membranes is stimulated by the calcium- and phospholipid-dependent enzyme protein kinase C. Over the concentration range of 100-1000 milliunits/ml, both highly purified (approximately 3000 units/mg of protein) protein kinase C from rat brain and partially purified (14 units/mg of protein) protein kinase C(More)
Despite evidence of inadequate physical examination skills among medical students, teaching these skills has declined. One method of enhancing inspection skills is teaching “visual literacy,” the ability to reason physiology and pathophysiology from careful and unbiased observation. To improve students’ visual acumen through structured observation of(More)
Sterol ester hydrolase (cholesterol esterase, E.C. 3.1.1.13) of bovine adrenal cortex has been extensively purified by ammonium sulfate fractionation, acid precipitation, hydroxylapatite chromatography, and Sephadex G-200 chromatography. During the purification sequence, the hydrolase activity was purified free of endogenous protein kinase. With this(More)
The contrast threshold elevation effect has been measured for one dimensional (grating) and for two dimensional (spot) stimulus patterns. It has been shown previously (Burton and Ruddock, 1978) that such stimuli elicit, respectively, non-length-selective and length-selective adaptation effects. It is established that, unlike the frequency shift effect, the(More)
