Conditioned medium prepared from mouse melanoma B16 cells (B16-CM) increases the macromolecular permeability of bovine aortic, venous and human umbilical vein endothelial monolayer. Collagen, which is synthesised by endothelial cells, has an important function in regulating the permeability of endothelial monolayer. Briefly, low collagen content leads to(More)
The immediate effects of phrenic afferent nerve activation on ventilation have been shown to be both excitatory and inhibitory. Long-lasting inhibitory effects on respiratory motoneuron output have been reported after stimulation of afferent nerves from limb muscles. However, whether respiratory muscle afferent nerves can produce this effect is unknown. We(More)
The tissue distribution of anti-tumour vascular endothelium monoclonal antibody (TES-23) produced by immunizing with plasma membrane vesicles from isolated rat tumour-derived endothelial cells (TECs) was assessed in various tumour-bearing animals. Radiolabelled TES-23 dramatically accumulated in KMT-17 fibrosarcoma, the source of isolated TECs after(More)
