Coagulation and fibrinolysis in capybara (Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris), a close relative of the guinea-pig (Cavia porcellus).
It is suggested that the capybara could be a valuable laboratory animal considering its size and closeness to the guinea-pig, and this could allow for the provision of materials from one single animal when convenient or necessary. Expand
Brain development in relation to fetal weight and maternal glucose tolerance during normal gestation
It is speculated that the amount of glucose available to the brain could be responsible for the relative protection of the brain to fetal malnutrition and also for the link between maternal glucose index and parameters of fetal brain development. Expand
Rapid, column, flow-through radioimmunoassay for insulin.
Insulin levels in a variety of sera assayed by this column method agree well with results from other more conventional radioimmunoassay methods. Expand


Failure of Guinea Pig Antibodies to Beef Insulin, Chicken Insulin, and Cod Insulin to Neutralize Capybara Insulin
An amount of guinea pig antibody to beef insulin sufficient to neutralize thirty times as much beef insulin did not significantly alter the increase in glycogen content produced by pancreatic capybara insulin in the mouse hemidiaphragm in vitro. Expand
Immunology Conformation and Biological Activity of Insulin
It is shown that any change in conformation results in a proportionate decrease of biologic activity of insulin, and the molecular mechanism of insulin action probably involves a complementary fit with a site either on or with insulin responsive cells. Expand
Failure of Guinea Pig Antibody to Beef Insulin to Neutralize Coypu (Nutria) Insulin
An amount of guinea pig antibody to beef insulin sufficient to neutralize twenty-five times as much beef insulin had no effect on the increase in glycogen content produced by pancreatic or serum coypu insulin in the mouse hemidiaphragm in vitro. Expand
Immunological and biological properties of iodoinsulin labeled with one or less atoms of iodine per molecule.
Evidence is presented which supports the postulate that only a portion of the antibodies in guinea pig insulin antiserum are capable of effectively binding with purified iodoinsulin. Expand
The immunology of insulin.

  • 1966
The structure of insulin molecules from several vertebrate species is discussed, comparing chemical structural features and antigenic characteristics, and the relationship of anti-insulin antibodies to the etiology, course, and treatment of diabetes is critically reviewed in the chapter. Expand
Coated charcoal immunoassay of insulin.
The procedure here described yields a straight line graph when insulin added is plotted against insulin recovered, and makes simpler and more rapid the immunoassay of insulin in biologic fluids, using radioisotope dilution with 131I-insulin and "biopsy" of the insulin pool by antibody to insulin.
