Biological activities of angiotensin II-(1-6)-hexapeptide and angiotensin II-(1-7)-heptapeptide in man.
Biological activities of angiotensin II-(1-6)-hexapeptide [ANG-(1-6)] and angiotensin II-(1-7)-heptapeptide [ANG-(1-7)] were studied in 5 normal men and 3 patients with Bartter's syndrome. TheExpand

Isolation of skeletal muscle cell membrane and some of its properties.
A procedure is described for the isolation of empty tubular cell membrane-like structures from rat skeletal muscle. The procedure resulted in a purification of about 140-fold in terms of proteinExpand

Evidence that translocation of the glucose transport activity is the major mechanism of insulin action on glucose transport in fat cells.
The glucose transport activity associated with the plasma membrane-rich and Golgi-rich fractions of fat cells was determined after they were reconstituted into egg lecithin liposomes. When the twoExpand

Insulin-sensitive phosphodiesterase. Its localization, hormonal stimulation, and oxidative stabilization.
As it was shown previoulsy by others, the membrane-bound phosphodiesterase (cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate phosphodiesterase) of rat epididymal fat cells was stimulated when intact cells wereExpand

Biological activity of des-asp1-angiotensin II (angiotensin III) in man.
Effects of des-asp1-angiotensin II (angiotensin III) on blood pressure and aldosterone secretion were examined in man. Angiotensin III was equipotent with val5-angiotensin II amide in the stimulationExpand

An improved method of reconstitution of adipocyte glucose transport activity.
Abstract The glucose transport activity of rat epididymal fat cells was reconstituted into egg lecithin liposomes with a high degree of reproducibility. The activity was solubilized with 20 m mExpand

Biological activity of des-Asp1-angiotensin I in man.
The biological activity of des-Asp1-angiotensin I (des-Asp1-AI) was studied in five normal men. An iv infusion of 300 ng (258 pmol)/kg.min des-Asp1-AI caused a remarkable rise in blood pressure, aExpand

Modification of E. coli L-asparaginase with polyethylene glycol: disappearance of binding ability to anti-asparaginase serum.
Abstract L-Asparaginase from Escherichia coli A-1-3 was modified with activated polyethylene glycols (2-0-methoxypolyethylene glycol-4,6-dichloro-s-triazine) with molecular weights of 750, 1900 andExpand
