Synthesis of a cortisol-biotin conjugate and evaluation as a tracer in an immunoassay for salivary cortisol measurement
Cortisol 3-(o-carboxymethyl)oxime (C3-CMO) and a commercially available biotin-hydrazide derivative were used to synthesize a C3-CMO-biotin conjugate. C3-CMO was converted into a N-hydroxysuccinimideExpand

Implicit motives and gonadal steroid hormones: effects of menstrual cycle phase, oral contraceptive use, and relationship status
Implicit motives for power and affiliation, salivary levels of testosterone, estradiol, and progesterone, and relationship status were measured in 18 normally cycling (NC) women, 18 women using oralExpand

Impact of CYP2C9 and CYP2C19 polymorphisms on tolbutamide kinetics and the insulin and glucose response in healthy volunteers.
Tolbutamide is known to be metabolized by cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C9), and the effects of the CYP2C9 amino acid polymorphisms *2 (Arg144Cys) and *3 (Ile359Leu) could be important for drug treatmentExpand

Glucose tolerance and insulin secretion in children of mothers with pregestational IDDM or gestational diabetes
Summary The offspring of mothers with diabetes mellitus during pregnancy are presumed to develop altered glucose homeostasis. We analysed metabolic parameters at birth and glucose tolerance andExpand

Impact of CYP2C9 amino acid polymorphisms on glyburide kinetics and on the insulin and glucose response in healthy volunteers
Glyburide (INN, glibenclamide) is a second‐generation sulfonylurea antidiabetic agent with high potency. We hypothesized that glyburide may be a substrate of cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C9), an enzymeExpand
