1. Illumination of the isolated outer segments of rod photoreceptors loaded with (42)K or (86)Rb reduces the efflux of these ions.2. During the perfusion of the isolated rod outer segments with a solution containing only 2.36 mM-Na the effect of light is absent, and the amplitude of the photic effect is linearly related to the logarithm of the extracellular(More)
1. Illumination of the isolated frog retina reduces the efflux of (42)K (and (86)Rb).2. Perfusion with a solution containing glutamate ions does not abolish the effect, although the electroretinogram is modified and the b-wave absent in this condition.3. Perfusion with a solution with only 2.36 mM sodium abolishes the effect of light on the efflux of(More)
Ribavirin-induced hemolytic anemia is the main cause of discontinuation of the combination therapy with alpha-interferon-2b and ribavirin for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The determination of intracellular ribavirin levels in blood, including the levels of its phosphorylated metabolites, might be useful for predicting(More)
