The occurence of Complex-1 deficiency in PWS is likely a secondary rather than a primary event, but may contribute to the PWS clinical phenotype in certain cases. Expand
Circadian rhythm of serum testosterone and its relation to sleep: comparison with the variation in serum luteinizing hormone, prolactin, and cortisol in normal men.
The mean serum levels of testosterone and PRL during nonrapid eye movement sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep differed significantly from those during the waking period, however, the mean levels of these hormones during REM sleep were not statistically different from Those during NREM sleep.

Effect of molybdate on activation and stabilization of steroid receptors.
The findings suggest that activation and destabilization have a common mechanism which involves a small molecular weight component(s) and that molybdate has a specific inhibitory effect on this mechanism. Expand
Relationship between circadian rhythm of food intake and that of plasma corticosterone and effect of food restriction on circadian adrenocortical rhythm in the rat.
The circadian rhythms in both food intake and plasma corticosterone (11-OHCS) in adult female rats were altered concomitantly under various lighting conditions. In all lighting regimens, plasma 11-OHC
Peptide Inhibitors of the Renin–Angiotensin System
This work has studied the effects of synthetic peptides with a leucyl–leucine bond and their derivatives on the activity of renin in the formation of angiotensin. Expand
Structure and action of saikosaponins isolated from Bupleurum falcatum L. II. Metabolic actions of saikosaponins, especially a plasma cholesterol-lowering action.
Several metabolic actions of saikosaponins isolated from the root of Bupleurum falcatum L. were examined using albino rats. Hepatic protein synthesis from leucine-14C(U) was enhanced. GlycogenExpand
Metabolism of vasoactive substances in the lung.
Mechanism of activation of steroid receptors: involvement of low molecular weight inhibitor in activation of androgen, glucocorticoid, and estrogen receptor systems.
The mechanism of activation of androgen receptor in the rat ventral prostate and glucocorticoid receptor in the rat liver was studied and compared with that of estrogen receptor in the rat uterus.Expand
Effect of dietary cholesterol on cholesterol and bile acid metabolism in rats.
It is concluded that dietary cholesterol increases the formation and excretion of chenodeoxycholic acid, and also that of cholic acid but to a lesser extent, and is responsible for the diminution of tissue and blood cholesterol. Expand
