Long-term effect of insulin on glucose transport and insulin binding in cultured adipocytes from normal and obese humans with and without non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
(East Carolina University, 1987-10)
We have tested the hypothesis that in vitro exposure of insulin- resistant adipocytes with insulin results in improved insulin action. A primary culture system of adipocytes from obese subjects with ...
Insulin-like growth factor I binding in hepatocytes from human liver, human hepatoma, and normal, regenerating, and fetal rat liver.
(East Carolina University, 1988-04)
Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in human hepatoma cells (HEP-G2) has, in addition to its effect on cell growth, shortterm metabolic effects acting through its own receptor. We have demonstrated that normal ...
Thoracic neuroblastoma presenting as a cystic hygroma.
(East Carolina University, 1988-10)
A case of thoracic neuroblastoma with extension into the supraclavicular fossa is described. By physical examination and ultrasound the patient was thought to have a cystic hygroma with mediastinal extension. A 'cystic' ...
Regulation of lipoprotein lipase mRNA content in 3T3-L1 cells by tumour necrosis factor.
(East Carolina University, 1988-02-01)
Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) was previously shown to suppress lipoprotein lipase (LPL) synthesis and activity in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. The present study examined the effect ofTNF on amounts ofmRNA for LPL in 3T3-Ll cells. ...
Cecal and fecal bacterial flora of the Mongolian gerbil and the chinchilla.
(East Carolina University, 1988-05)
The Mongolian gerbil is being increasingly used as a laboratory animal and as a pet. Both chinchillas and gerbils are used as animal models for otitis media and other otic research. Previously, only incomplete information ...
Absence of unsaturated fatty acid synthesis in murine T lymphocytes.
(East Carolina University, 1989-08)
Stearic acid is toxic for T lymphocytes in vitro but has little effect on B lymphocytes. To investigate the molecular basis for this difference, purified murine T and B lymphocytes were compared for their abilities to ...
An in vitro human muscle preparation suitable for metabolic studies. Decreased insulin stimulation of glucose transport in muscle from morbidly obese and diabetic subjects.
(East Carolina University, 1988-08)
We have developed an in vitro muscle preparation suitable for metabolic studies with human muscle tissue and have investigated the effects of obesity and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) on glucose transport. ...
Effects of palindromes on in vivo DNA replication and mutagenesis in bacteriophage phi X174 RF DNA.
(East Carolina University, 1988-11-25)
Bacteriophage IX174 mutants with insertions of palindromic DNA sequences are rapidly outgrown by competing wild-type phage (Muller & Turnage, J. Mol. Biol. 189: 285). The basis for this defect was investigated and found ...
Another dimension to the black Diaspora. Diet, disease, and racism
(East Carolina University, 1983-07)
Lesional modulation of peripheral monocyte leucotactic responsiveness in leprosy.
(East Carolina University, 1987-11)
Because the accumulation and activation of mononuclear phagocytes are critical to the host response to intracellular microbial pathogens, we evaluated mechanisms of peripheral monocyte leucotactic regulation in leprosy. ...
