Rigid control has been imposed upon the Missouri River by impounding over one-half of the upper 1500 miles and by channeling most of the remaining river within permanent, narrow banks. These controls have caused environmental changes in the lower Missouri River, as shown by this study, of adjacent unchannelized and channelized sections of river below the(More)
Chemokines are a family of low-molecular-weight proinflammatory cytokines that stimulate recruitment of leukocytes. The chemokines interleukin-8 (IL-8) and monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) are relatively specific chemoattractants for neutrophils and monocytes, respectively. Chemokine expression contributes to the presence of different leukocyte(More)
Mouse 3T3-L1 fibroblast cells, also know as preadipocytes, differentiate in vitro into adipocytes when treated with promoting agents and acquire numerous properties characteristic of mature fat cells. We studied junctional cell-to-cell communication by measuring the incidence of electrical coupling and transfer of carboxy-fluorescein among these cells. When(More)
