The inositol lipid pools of isolated rat hepatocytes were labeled with [3H]myo-inositol, stimulated maximally with vasopressin and the relative contents of [3H]inositol phosphates were measured by high performance liquid chromatography. Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate accumulated rapidly (peak 20 s), while inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate and a novel inositol(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the advantages of binaural hearing for cochlear implant (CI) users using a hearing aid (HA) for the contralateral ear. MATERIAL AND METHODS The subjects comprised 3 males and 3 females (age range 48-84 years). All of them had been using a CI and HA for > 6 months. Their speech perception was examined in quiet using monosyllables and(More)
The peptide angiotensin II (AngII) has been reported to stimulate phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PLC) activity in the murine neuroblastoma cell line N1E-115. In the present study, polyclonal antibodies raised against a PLC isoenzyme, PLC-alpha, reacted with a 60-kDa protein present in both membrane and cytosolic fractions of differentiated(More)
Angiotensin II (Ang-II) receptors were solubilized from differentiated N1E-115 neuroblastoma cell membranes with the zwitterionic detergent 3-[(3-cholamidopropyl)dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulfonate (CHAPS), whereas other detergents, such as digitonin, sodium cholate, and Triton X-100, were much less effective. Binding of 125I-Ang-II or the antagonist(More)
