TSH (thyrotropin)-stimulated human thyroid adenylate cyclase has a biphasic response to Ca2+, being activated by submicromolar Ca2+ (optimum 22nM), with inhibition at higher concentrations. Calmodulin antagonists caused an inhibition of TSH-stimulated adenylate cyclase in a dose-dependent manner. Inhibition of TSH-and TSIg-(thyroid-stimulating(More)
DEAE chromatography of a high speed supernatant fraction from a homogenate of rat liver, prepared under isotonic conditions in the presence of protease inhibitors, yielded three peaks of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase activity (PDE activity). The first peak could be resolved on Affi-gel Blue chromatography to yield a Ca2+/calmodulin stimulated cyclic(More)
Chromium at very low concentrations is an essential trace element--at higher concentrations it is associated with contact dermatitis and other toxicity problems. Its ionic radius is just outside that of other metal cations which have been found to activate calmodulin in vitro. We found that chromium was able to activate calmodulin at two different(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the impact of using two abbreviated signal montages on the accuracy, precision and inter-scorer reliability of polysomnography (PSG) sleep and arousal scoring, compared to a standard reference montage, in a cohort of patients investigated for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). One abbreviated montage incorporated two signals(More)
