Vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms have been associated with several immune-related diseases, and VDR and vitamin D itself modulate T cell differentiation. VDR maps to chromosome 12q, near a region commonly linked to asthma. We evaluated VDR as part of a 12q positional candidate survey, and in response to observations of VDR polymorphism associations(More)
The contribution of the pancreas to the plasma activities of amylase, isoamylase, lipase and the concentration of trypsin-like immunoreactivity (TLI) in the dog was examined by measuring the activities of these enzymes before and after total pancreatectomy. Pancreatectomy was followed by a decrease in the concentration of TLI (from 6.2 +/- 0.3 micrograms(More)
