Individual differences in decision making are a topic of longstanding interest, but often yield inconsistent and contradictory results. After providing an overview of individual difference measures that have commonly been used in judgment and decision-making (JDM) research, we suggest that our understanding of individual difference effects in JDM may be(More)
GnRH regulates gonadotropin biosynthesis and secretion. Multiple intracellular signaling pathways are activated by GnRH, including phosphoinositol turnover, release of intracellular calcium and influx of extracellular calcium, and activation of protein kinase C (PKC), among others. In this study, we investigated whether GnRH stimulates mitogen-activated(More)
The antimicrobial activity of extracts of Curcuma zedoaria and Curcuma malabarica tubers was tested against six bacterial and two fungal strains using the agar well diffusion and broth dilution methods. Petroleum ether, hexane, chloroform, acetone and ethanol extracts exhibited antibacterial as well as antifungal activity. Acetone and hexane extracts of(More)
GnRH elicits secretion of LH and FSH from gonadotropes by activating an array of intracellular signals including the generation of inositol triphosphate and the release of intracellular calcium. Given the important role of calcium in the secretory responses to GnRH, we examined the expression and function of the ryanodine receptors, which are known to(More)
GnRH regulates secretion of the gonadotropins, LH and FSH, in a sexually dimorphic manner. In the present study, we examined GnRH regulation of the gonadotropin alpha-subunit promoter to assess whether sex-dependent hormonal effects are manifest at the transcriptional level. Primary cultures of male or female rat pituitary cells were transfected with a(More)
A new method is reported for determination of cyanoglucosides in cassava. The method is simple, rapid, and sensitive. Ten g cassava tuber is homogenized with warm (65-70 degrees C) 80% ethanol (1 + 6, w/v) to extract cyanoglucosides (CNG). The ethanol is evaporated, and an aliquot of the extract (0.1-0.2 mL) is incubated with added linamarase in pH 6.0(More)
