To evaluate possible mechanisms by which insulin inhibits hepatic apolipoprotein B (apoB) secretion, we incubated primary cultures of rat hepatocytes with sodium orthovanadate, a phosphotyrosine phosphatase inhibitor and insulin-mimetic agent. Vanadate (10 microM) and insulin (10 nM) inhibited the medium accumulation of apoB (secretion) by 21 and 37%,(More)
Our laboratory has previously shown that insulin inhibits the secretion of newly-synthesized and immunoreactive apo B from rat hepatocytes. We have also shown that apo B is secreted as a phosphoprotein and that phosphorylation is increased in hypoinsulinemic nonketotic diabetes. The present studies were conducted to determine whether the ability of insulin(More)
PURPOSE To compare urine ligase and polymerase chain reaction (LCR, PCR) tests for diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis cervical infection with PCR and nucleic acid probe (GPA) on cervical specimens in adolescents, as well as risk factors for C. trachomatis infection and prevalence of infection at enrollment. METHODS Urine and cervical specimens were(More)
The effects of hypoinsulinemic nonketotic streptozotocin diabetes on hepatic apo B synthesis and secretion was studied in primary cultures of rat hepatocytes. Diabetic rats were characterized by their significantly elevated serum glucose, apo B, and triglyceride levels, while serum insulin levels were less than a third of normal. Serum transminase(More)
17 alpha-hydroxylase deficiency syndrome (17-OHDS) is associated with hypogonadism, hypertension, and hypokalemia. Aldosterone production, however, is not elevated, and therefore, other known or unknown mineralocorticoids must account for the excess in mineralocorticoid activity. This study sought to determine whether 19-nor-deoxycorticosterone(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the determination of granisetron (GRN) in guinea pig plasma has been developed. Guinea pig plasma spiked with GRN was microfiltered, and the recovered filtrate was directly injected onto the column without any further cleanup procedures. Separation was achieved on a spherical silica column and GRN(More)
A 14-year-old girl with anorexia nervosa (AN) was found to have an intracranial neoplasm. Atypical psychological symptoms prompted further evaluation, including electroencephalogram and neuroimaging, which revealed a sellar and suprasellar mass. This patient had an eating disorder and a brain tumor, which appear to be two unrelated conditions. However, it(More)
Osteoporosis, especially in the elderly, may be preventable. Postmenopausal white women appear to be primarily at risk. Investigations into the etiology have concentrated on calcium metabolism. New noninvasive tests may supplant iliac biopsy, which is currently the definitive test for osteoporosis. The importance of adequate calcium intake and exercise(More)
