The role of the proximal small intestine in improvements in diabetes resolution and insulin sensitivity following bariatric surgery in type 2 diabetes
(East Carolina University, 2011)
Bariatric surgery is an effective, rapid, and durable treatment for obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) resolves T2DM in 80% of cases, while gastric banding (LAGB) resolves T2DM in ...
DINITROBENZENES STIMULATE ELECTRON FLUX WITHIN NEURONAL NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE IN THE ABSENCE OF CALMODULIN
Efficient electron transfer and conversion of L-arginine to L-citrulline and nitric oxide (NO●) by neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) requires calmodulin (CaM) binding. The present study focused on electron transfer ...
The influence of the level of physical activity and human development in the quality of life in survivors of stroke
Background The association between physical activity and quality of life in stroke survivors has not been analyzed within a framework related to the human development index. This study aimed to identify differences in ...
Coronary Artery Ligation and Intramyocardial Injection in a Murine Model of Infarction
Mouse models are a valuable tool for studying acute injury and chronic remodeling of the myocardium in vivo. With the advent of genetic modifications to the whole organism or the myocardium and an array of biological and/or ...
Identification of cytosolic phosphodiesterases in the erythrocyte: A possible role for PDE5
Background Within erythrocytes (RBCs), cAMP levels are regulated by phosphodiesterases (PDEs). Increases in cAMP and ATP release associated with activation of β-adrenergic receptors (βARs) and prostacyclin receptors ...
