In this paper we study the partial regularity of a functional on BV space proposed by Chambolle and Lions [3] for the purposes of image restoration. The functional is designed to smooth corrupted images using isotropic diffusion via the Laplacian where the gradients of the image are below a certain threshold and retain edges where gradients are above the(More)
The effect of hypo- and hyperthyroidism on the plasma growth hormone (GH) response to synthetic human growth hormone releasing factor (GRF) was determined in conscious, freely moving rats pretreated with chlorpromazine and antiserum against somatostatin. Chlorpromazine plus somatostatin antiserum pretreated rats gave consistent response to GRF which was not(More)
A method for the protecting group free synthesis of β-urea-linked glycoconjugates has been developed. The one step process, involving reactions between urea and D-glucose, N-acetyl-D-glucosamine or D-xylose in acidic aqueous solution, furnishes the corresponding β-urea glycosides in modest yields. This simple and efficient procedure is applicable to the(More)
The effect of ventromedial-arcuate (VMH-ARC) nuclei lesions on plasma growth hormone (GH) response to human growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF, 1 microgram/kg b.wt., i.v.) was studied in conscious rats after they had received chlorpromazine (CPZ) or CPZ plus antiserum against somatostatin (ASS). When rats were pretreated with CPZ alone, there was no(More)
Female and male rats were treated with monosodium glutamate (MSG; 4 mg/g b. wt.) as neonates and the capability of the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone (GH) in response to an intravenous injection of human GH-releasing factor (GRF) was evaluated under pentobarbital anesthesia on 109 days of life. Immunoreactive GRF content in the pituitary(More)
