BACKGROUND: Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, as a consequence of preterm birth, is a major cause of early mortality and morbidity. The withdrawal of progesterone, either actual or functional, is thought to be an a...
There is interest in how altered lipid metabolism could contribute to muscle insulin resistance. Many animal and human states of insulin resistance have increased muscle triglyceride content, and there are now plausible ...
Loss of normal growth control is a hallmark of cancer. Thus, understanding the mechanisms of tissue-specific, normal growth regulation and the changes that occur during tumorigenesis may provide insights of both diagnost...
The properties of an antioestrogen binding site (AEBS), which has high affinity and specificity for nonsteroidal antioestrogens and structurally related compounds, have been studied in rat liver microsomes. When subcellu...
Obesity, insulin resistance and disturbed glucose metabolism cluster within the Insulin Resistance Syndrome (IRS). Whether this reflects shared genetic or environmental factors detectable in 'normal' populations (not sel...
CONTROL OF CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM: Neuropeptide Y has three major activities which are important in the modulation of blood pressure homeostasis. When released from sympathetic neurons innervating the cardiovascular syste...
Because of the genetic variability of the HIV-1 envelope glycoproteins (Env), the elicitation of neutralizing Abs to conserved neutralization determinants including the primary receptor binding site, CD4 binding site (CD...
Prostaglandins generated by the phospholipase A2 (PLA2)/cyclooxygenase (COX) pathway are well known to mediate diverse intracellular and extracellular effects that regulate mammalian development, vascular function, renal...
