Anabolic effects of androgens on skeletal muscle are well documented, but the physiological and biochemical bases of these effects are poorly understood. Skeletal muscles that differ in their androgen responsiveness can be used to examine these mechanisms. We compared androgen receptor mRNA and protein levels of the rat levator ani, a perineal skeletal(More)
In rats cisplatin induces hypocalcemia, bloating of the stomach, and ulceration ameliorated through calcium supplements. This study was undertaken to test the role of calcium on the gastrin mRNA production in vitro and in vivo. RIN B6 cells were cultured in medium with calcium (1.8, 3.6 and 7.2 mM) and the active form of vitamin D (calcijex). Cisplatin was(More)
