The effects of hematoporphyrin derivative-induced photosensitization on the levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in R3230AC mammary adenocarcinomas were studied. Enzymatically dissociated tumor cells were exposed to various doses of hematoporphyrin derivative (HPD) in vitro plus photoradiation. A drug and light dose-dependent decrease in cellular ATP(More)

The effects of diabetes and insulin administration on certain aspects of phosphoinositide metabolism in R3230AC mammary tumors were studied in vivo. Three weeks after diabetes was induced by streptozotocin, [3H]myoinositol incorporation into PI, PIP and PIP2 was increased in R3230AC tumors, whereas the formation of [3H]IP, [3H]IP2 and [3H]IP3 was decreased.(More)
Phosphatidylinositol (PI) kinase was characterized, its activity was measured in plasma membrane-enriched fractions of R3230AC rat mammary tumors, and these results were compared to enzyme activity in normal mammary glands at various stages of differentiation. PI kinase activity was found to be highest in mammary adenocarcinomas, whereas the mammary gland(More)
The influence of diabetes and insulin treatment on the phospholipid content of R3230AC mammary tumors, a hormonally responsive neoplasm, was studied. Diabetes was induced by administration of streptozotocin 3 days prior to tumor implanta tion. Protamine zinc insulin, 3 ID/rat twice daily, was administered to tumor-bearing rats for 3 days. Enzymatically(More)

Hypothyroidism was produced in weanling albino rats by the oral administration of 2-thiouracil (TU) for 110 days. These animals recorded nearly 50 per cent reduction in mitochondrial oxidation of succinate, protein content and the activity of inner mitochondrial membrane-bound beta-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase. Administration of iodobenzene (IB; 0.1(More)
