GlobulinsSerum Globulins: All blood proteins except albumin ( = SERUM ALBUMIN, which is not a globulin) and FIBRINOGEN (which is not in the serum). The serum globulins are subdivided into ALPHA-GLOBULINS; BETA-GLOBULINS; and GAMMA-GLOBULINS on the basis of their electrophoretic mobilities. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin: A glycoprotein migrating as a beta-globulin. Its molecular weight, 52,000 or 95,000-115,000, indicates that it exists as a dimer. The protein binds testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, and estradiol in the plasma. Sex hormone-binding protein has the same amino acid sequence as ANDROGEN-BINDING PROTEIN. They differ by their sites of synthesis and post-translational oligosaccharide modifications.gamma-Globulins: Serum globulins that migrate to the gamma region (most positively charged) upon ELECTROPHORESIS. At one time, gamma-globulins came to be used as a synonym for immunoglobulins since most immunoglobulins are gamma globulins and conversely most gamma globulins are immunoglobulins. But since some immunoglobulins exhibit an alpha or beta electrophoretic mobility, that usage is in decline.Interleukin-1beta: An interleukin-1 subtype that is synthesized as an inactive membrane-bound pro-protein.

They interact with a wide variety of ligands including EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX PROTEINS; COMPLEMENT, and other cells, while their intracellular domains interact with the CYTOSKELETON. The integrins consist of at least three identified families: the cytoadhesin receptors(RECEPTORS, CYTOADHESIN), the leukocyte adhesion receptors (RECEPTORS, LEUKOCYTE ADHESION), and the VERY LATE ANTIGEN RECEPTORS. Each family contains a common beta-subunit (INTEGRIN BETA CHAINS) combined with one or more distinct alpha-subunits (INTEGRIN ALPHA CHAINS).

Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.Receptors, Adrenergic, beta-1: A subclass of beta-adrenergic receptors (RECEPTORS, ADRENERGIC, BETA). The adrenergic beta-1 receptors are equally sensitive to EPINEPHRINE and NOREPINEPHRINE and bind the agonist DOBUTAMINE and the antagonist METOPROLOL with high affinity.

Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.Binding Sites: The parts of a macromolecule that directly participate in its specific combination with another molecule.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.Recombinant Proteins: Proteins prepared by recombinant DNA technology.Kinetics: The rate dynamics in chemical or physical systems.Radioimmunoassay: Classic quantitative assay for detection of antigen-antibody reactions using a radioactively labeled substance (radioligand) either directly or indirectly to measure the binding of the unlabeled substance to a specific antibody or other receptor system.

Fibrinogen clotting is a sol-gel change involving complex molecular arrangements: whereas fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin to form polypeptides A and B, the proteolytic action of other enzymes yields different fibrinogen degradation products.Flow Cytometry: Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting.

Evidence for substrate-specific requirement of the splicing factor U2AF(35) and for its function after polypyrimidine tract recognition by U2AF(65). (1/222)

U2 snRNP auxiliary factor (U2AF) promotes U2 snRNP binding to pre-mRNAs and consists of two subunits of 65 and 35 kDa, U2AF(65) and U2AF(35). U2AF(65) binds to the polypyrimidine (Py) tract upstream from the 3' splice site and plays a key role in assisting U2 snRNP recruitment. It has been proposed that U2AF(35) facilitates U2AF(65) binding through a network of protein-protein interactions with other splicing factors, but the requirement and function of U2AF(35) remain controversial. Here we show that recombinant U2AF(65) is sufficient to activate the splicing of two constitutively spliced pre-mRNAs in extracts that were chromatographically depleted of U2AF. In contrast, U2AF(65), U2AF(35), and the interaction between them are required for splicing of an immunoglobulin micro; pre-RNA containing an intron with a weak Py tract and a purine-rich exonic splicing enhancer. Remarkably, splicing activation by U2AF(35) occurs without changes in U2AF(65) cross-linking to the Py tract. These results reveal substrate-specific requirements for U2AF(35) and a novel function for this factor in pre-mRNA splicing.  (+info)

Chromatin modification by DNA tracking. (2/222)

In general, the transcriptional competence of a chromatin domain is correlated with increased sensitivity to DNase I cleavage. A recent observation that actively transcribing RNA polymerase II piggybacks a histone acetyltranferase activity [Wittschieben, B., Otero, G., de Bizemont, T., Fellows, J., Erdjument-Bromage, H., Ohba, R., Li, Y., Allis, C. D., Tempst, P. & Svejstrup, J. Q. (1999) Mol. Cell 4, 123-128] implies that the state of histone acetylation, and hence the ability of chromatin to fold, can be altered by a processive mechanism. In this article, it is proposed that tracking-mediated chromatin modification could create and/or maintain an open configuration in a complete chromatin domain including both intra- and extragenic regions. This mechanism suggests a putative functional role for the extragenic transcription observed at the beta-globin and other loci in vertebrate cells.  (+info)

Globulins in protein supplements promote the development of preimplantation embryos. (3/222)

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to investigate the effect of alpha- and beta-globulins contained in protein supplements on the development of preimplantation embryos. METHODS: Mouse one-cell embryos were cultured in medium supplemented with 4 mg/ml human serum albumin (HSA), 4 mg/ml HSA plus human globulins (0.2, 0.4, 0.8, and 1.6 mg/ml) that consisted predominantly of alpha- and beta-globulins, or 10% Plasmanate Cutter (PC). Blastocysts developed in media supplemented with these various protein sources were stained with Hoechst 33342 to determine the number of cells. RESULTS: Supplementation with 0.4 to 1.6 mg/ml globulins or PC significantly increased the rate of blastocyst development compared with that observed with the addition of HSA. Supplementation with globulins significantly increased the hatching rate in a dose-dependent manner. The number of cells in the blastocysts was significantly increased when the embryos were cultured with 0.8 mg/ml of the globulins or PC. CONCLUSIONS: The present observations suggest that alpha- and beta-globulins in protein supplements promote embryo development and hatching.  (+info)

Influence of histochemical and immunohistochemical stains on polymerase chain reaction. (4/222)

The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of DNA extracted from tissue sections can be applied to a variety of research and diagnostic protocols. To analyze selectively the specific areas of tissue, a direct microdissection of histochemically or immunohistochemically stained sections, if satisfactory for PCR, is helpful. However, the influence of various staining methods on PCR has been poorly investigated. In this study, paraffin sections of formalin-fixed lymph node samples were histochemically stained with Mayer's hematoxylin, eosin Y, methyl green, or May-Grunwald solution and immunostained for CD45 using 3,3'-diaminobenzidine (DAB), DAB with cobalt ion (DAB-Co), or new fuchsin as the chromogen. In addition, unstained sections were treated with trypsin, microwave, or pressure cooker, the techniques frequently used in immunostains for antigen unmasking. DNA was extracted from each section, and the PCR efficiency in amplifying a 110 bp portion of the beta-globin gene was evaluated by two parameters: the cycle count in which the first visible band was obtained (CYCLE(min)) and the maximum amount of PCR products (CONC(max)). The hematoxylin stain showed a significantly prolonged CYCLE(min) (P < .01) and lower CONC(max) (P < .05) in comparison with unstained and untreated control sections. The May-Grunwald stain showed a prolonged CYCLE(min) (P < .01), although the CONC(max) was not significantly different from that of the control (P = .051). The eosin and methyl green stains showed no effects against PCR. In immunostains, the DAB-Co method showed a lower CONC(max) (P < .05), whereas the CYCLE(min) was not prolonged. The DAB and new fuchsin methods had no untoward effects. Antigen-unmasking treatments showed deteriorating effects on PCR. The trypsin treatment significantly prolonged the CYCLE(min) (P < .01), and the PCR amplification did not reach the "plateau" level with a maximum of 60 cycles. The PCR efficiency was worse in microwave or pressure cooker treatment, with neither CYCLE(min) nor CONC(max) being obtained. When target areas from sections for subsequent PCR amplification are microdissected, methyl green is most suitable as a dye for nuclear staining. The immunohistochemical visualization with DAB or new fuchsin yields no unfavorable effects. A successful PCR amplification may not be expected in sections that are pretreated in a microwave oven or pressure cooker.  (+info)

Suppression of metastasis by thymidine phosphorylase inhibitor. (5/222)

We developed a novel inhibitor of thymidine phosphorylase (TP), 5-chloro-6-[1-(2-iminopyrrolidinyl) methyl] uracil hydrochloride (TPI), that is about 1000-fold more active than 6-amino-5-chlorouracil, one of the most potent TP inhibitors. TPI inhibited the high chemotactic motility and basement membrane invasion of KB/TP cells, a TP-positive clone transfected with Rous sarcoma virus (RSV)/TP, to the levels seen in KB/CV cells, a control clone transfected with RSV. In nude mice, oral administration of TPI suppressed not only macroscopic liver metastases of highly metastatic KB/TP cells but also the level of human beta-globin as a molecular marker of micrometastases in the livers of the mice. These findings demonstrate that TP plays a key role in the invasiveness and metastasis of TP-expressing solid tumors and suggest that TPI might be a novel antimetastatic agent for blood-borne metastasis.  (+info)

Successful application of preimplantation genetic diagnosis for beta-thalassaemia and sickle cell anaemia in Italy. (6/222)

BACKGROUND: In Italy, the autosomal recessive diseases beta-thalassaemia and sickle cell anaemia are so widespread that in some regions they can be defined as 'social diseases'. In this study, nine clinical applications of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) were performed for beta-thalassaemia and sickle cell anaemia on seven Sicilian couples and carriers of beta-globin gene mutations. METHODS AND RESULTS: The studied mutations were: Cd39, HbS, IVS1 nt1, IVS1 nt6 and IVS1 nt110. ICSI was performed with partner's sperm on 131 out of 147 retrieved oocytes, and this resulted in 72 zygotes; 32 embryos were successfully biopsied on day 3. The biopsied blastomeres were lysed and the beta-globin alleles amplified by nested PCR. The mutation diagnosis was performed by restriction enzyme digestion and reverse dot-blot. The amplification efficacy was 97.2%. The genotype study of non-transferred and surplus embryos showed that the allele drop-out rate was 8.6%. Seventeen embryos were transferred in utero on day 4. All couples received an embryo transfer; of the four pregnancies obtained, three resulted in live births and one miscarried at 11 weeks. Prenatal diagnosis at the 11th week and miscarriage material analysis confirmed the PGD results. CONCLUSIONS: These studies represent the first successful application of PGD for beta-thalassaemia and sickle cell anaemia in Italy.  (+info)

Fluorescence PCR quantification of cyclin D1 expression. (7/222)

We have used a continuous fluorescence monitoring method to assess cyclin D1 mRNA expression in a variety of hematological and non-hematological processes. We examined 14 cell lines, 11 reactive lymphoid tissues, and 57 primary hematopoietic neoplasms including mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) (n = 10), chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) (n = 11), acute lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma (n = 15), follicular lymphoma (n = 6), peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) (n = 3), anaplastic large cell lymphoma (n = 3), hairy cell leukemia (n = 3), Burkitt lymphoma (n = 1), Burkitt-like lymphoma (n = 4), and plasmacytoma (n = 1) for the expression of cyclin D1 mRNA using fluorescently labeled sequence-specific hybridization probes. Fluorescence (F) was plotted against cycle (C) number over 45 cycles. The log-linear portion of the F versus C graph identified a fractional cycle number for threshold fluorescence. A beta-globin mRNA transcript with equivalent amplification efficiency to that of cyclin D1 was used for assessment of RNA integrity and normalization. In general, the MCLs demonstrated substantially higher levels of cyclin D1 mRNA than the other lymphoproliferative processes. Moderately high levels of cyclin D1 mRNA were detected in one PTCL. On average, the CLL/SLL cases showed cyclin D1 mRNA levels two to three orders of magnitude lower than observed in the MCLs. Cell lines derived from non-hematopoietic neoplasms such as fibrosarcoma, small cell carcinoma, and neuroblastoma showed comparable or higher levels of cyclin D1 mRNA than the MCLs. Our results indicate that quantitative real-time reverse transcription (RT) polymerase chain reaction is a simple, rapid, and accurate technique for assessing cyclin D1 expression, and while it is not specific, it can reliably be used in the distinction of MCL from CLL/SLL.  (+info)

Y14 and hUpf3b form an NMD-activating complex. (8/222)

Messenger RNAs with premature translation termination codons (PTCs) are degraded by nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD). In mammals, PTCs are discriminated from physiological stop codons by a process thought to involve the splicing-dependent deposition of an exon junction complex (EJC), EJC-mediated recruitment of Upf3, and Upf2 binding to the N terminus of Upf3. Here, we identify a conserved domain of hUpf3b that mediates an interaction with the EJC protein Y14. Tethered function analysis shows that the Y14/hUpf3b interaction is essential for NMD, while surprisingly the interaction between hUpf3b and hUpf2 is not. Nonetheless, hUpf2 is necessary for NMD mediated by tethered Y14. RNAi-induced knockdown and Y14 repletion of siRNA-treated cells implicates Y14 in the degradation of beta-globin NS39 mRNA and demonstrates that Y14 is required for NMD induced by tethered hUpf3b. These results uncover a direct role of Y14 in NMD and suggest an unexpected hierarchy in the assembly of NMD complexes.  (+info)

A β2-microglobulin with molecular weight of 12,600 daltons was initially isolated from the urine and serum of patients with renal tubular insufficiency (1). Smithies and Poulik (2) determined the partial amino acid sequence of this globulin and found that 24 of the first 46 amino acid residues were homologous with the amino acid sequence of parts of the heavy chain of the G-1 myeloma protein. This suggested that a structural relationship existed between the β2-microglobulin and the constant region of human IgG immunoglobulins. In spite of this structural relatedness, specific antisera against all known immunoglobulin chains (including secretory piece and J-chain) did not react with this protein. Subsequently, Peterson et al. (3) established the complete sequence of this protein and found that 28 amino acid residues of the β2-microglobulin were homologous with the CH3 domain of the myeloma protein. An homologous protein was also isolated recently from the dog (4), and its partial amino acid ...

There is an increasing demand for biomarkers in clinical treatment trials to demonstrate target engagement and to support disease modification claims. To be able to detect treatment related effects, a prerequisite is that the levels of the biomarker are stable over time or that the change over time is known. In the present study, the stability of alpha- and beta-cleaved soluble amyloid-beta protein precursor (sA beta PP alpha and sA beta PP beta), A beta(1-40) together with the phosphorylated form of neurofilament heavy/medium (pNfH/M) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was analyzed in a cohort of 51 patients with Alzheimers disease. In addition, the stability of A beta(1-40), beta(1-42), and sA beta PP beta in plasma was explored. Plasma and CSF was sampled at baseline and after 6-months follow up, and all patients were on stable treatment with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. During this 6-month longitudinal follow-up, we saw a small, but consistent and statistically significant increase in CSF ...

Beta-thromboglobulin (β-thromboglobulin, also called Pro-Platelet basic protein) is a protein that is stored in alpha-granules of platelets and released in large amounts after platelet activation. It is a type of Chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 7. It is a chemoattractant, strongly for fibroblasts and weakly for neutrophils. It is a stimulator of mitogenesis, extracellular matrix synthesis, glucose metabolism, and plasminogen activator synthesis in human fibroblasts. Beta-Thromboglobulin also affects megakaryocyte maturation, and thus helps in regulating platelet production. Levels of Beta-Thromboglobulin is used to index platelet activation. It is measured by ELISA in blood plasma or urine, and often in conjunction with Platelet factor 4) It is elevated in diabetes mellitus.

Background: Beta-trace protein (BTP) and beta-2-microglobulin (B2M) are novel markers of renal dysfunction associated with cardiovascular disease. We evaluated their relationship with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in a representative sample of US adults.. Methods: 6,642 participants aged 20 or above were included in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. They were recruited from 1988 to 1994 and followed up through 2006. Multivariate Cox regression analysis was used, with adjustment for age, race/ethnicity, sex, education, smoking, physical activity, BMI, diabetes, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL, serum uric acid, C-reactive protein, vitamin D, total cholesterol, blood urea nitrogen, hemoglobin, white blood cell count and eGFR.. Results: The mean (95% CI) serum BTP and B2M levels were 0.581 mg/L (0.571-0.592) and 1.93 mg/L (1.89-1.97) respectively. Within an average 12.1 years follow-up, 2,540 all-cause and 1,157 cardiovascular deaths occurred. The ...
Background. Beta-trace protein (BTP) has been proposed as an alternative endogenous marker of the glomerular filtration rate. However, possible determinants of BTP in ESRD patients undergoing regular renal replacement therapy have not been evaluated. Methods. Serum levels of BTP, beta-2-microglobulin, creatinine and urea were analysed before and after dialysis treatment in 73 patients [haemodialysis (HD) n = 52; haemodiafiltration (HDF) n = 21]. Patients were categorized into four groups with residual diuresis (RD) n = 24), 0.5â€Â"1 l/day (group 2; n = 18), 1.1â€Â"1.5 l/day (group 3; n = 12) and >1.5 l/day (group 4; n = 19). Subsequently RD was compared to pre-treatment levels of BTP. Results. HD treatment did not affect BTP serum levels [pre-treatment 8.1 ± 4.1 mg/l (mean) vs post-treatment 7.7 ± 4.1 mg/l; âˆÂ0.6 ± 16.1%; ns]. However, in 6 out of 21 patients undergoing HDF BTP levels were reduced by more than 20%. Overall, the resulting decrease ...
Molecules containing the 33-kDa plasma protein alpha1-microglobulin were isolated from human plasma by anti-(alpha1-microglobulin) affinity chromatography. Five major bands could be seen after electrophoretic separation of the alpha1-microglobulin-containing proteins under native conditions. Immunoblotting demonstrated alpha1-microglobulin in all five bands. Two of these have been described previously: free alpha1-microglobulin and alpha1-microglobulin complexed with IgA (IgA x alpha1-microglobulin). The other three bands were identified as prothrombin alpha1-microglobulin, albumin x alpha1-microglobulin and dimeric alpha1-microglobulin. Prothrombin x alpha1-microglobulin were 1:2 and 1:1 complexes which carried approximately 1% of total alpha1-microglobulin, had molecular masses of about 145 kDa and 110 kDa upon SDS/PAGE and dissociated completely to free alpha1-microglobulin and prothrombin (72 kDa) when reducing agents were added, suggesting that the complexes were stabilized by disulfide ...

Alpha globulins are serum proteins that have the most rapid migration during electrophoresis. This subgroup of globulins is divided into faster and slower alpha1 and alpha2-globulins.Proteins are the most abundant compounds in your serum. Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. In turn proteins are the building blocks of all cells and body tissues. They are the basic components of enzymes, many hormones, antibodies and clotting agents. Proteins act as transport substances for hormones, vitamins, minerals, lipids and other materials. In addition, proteins help balance the osmotic pressure of the blood and tissue.Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?

Background. An altered renal function is an essential component of the patho-physiology of pre-eclampsia. The plasma levels of low molecular mass proteins, e. g. beta-trace protein, beta-2-microglobulin and cystatin C, are increased in the third trimester of normal pregnancy. The plasma levels of cystatin C and beta-2-microglobulin are further increased in preeclampsia, and the cystatin C level has been reported to be a reliable marker for the disease. The aim of this investigation was to study the plasma levels of beta-trace protein, beta-2-microglobulin and cystatin C in pre-eclampsia, and to determine the diagnostic performance of these proteins compared to that of urate and creatinine. Methods. A case-control study of 57 women diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, and 218 healthy women with uncomplicated singleton pregnancies in the third trimester. Women in the catchment area of Lund, Sweden, were included during an 18-month period from October 2003 to April 2005. Venous blood samples were drawn ...
Referring to uremic toxicity profile, â2-microglobulin levels are reported to be lower in on-line hemofiltration/hemodiafiltration (33,36) with respect to low/high-flux hemodialysis, the reduction rate increasing from 58% to 73% due to the higher clearances. Of course these results, may, at least in part, be influenced by the quality of water in conventional/high-flux dialysis on the amount of â2-microglobulin production through the generation of inflammatory mediators triggered by endotoxins and pyrogens. These data are relevant from a clinical point of view: in fact, it has been reported that patients undergoing hemofiltration or hemodiafiltration have a risk for tunnel carpal syndrome that is 44% lower than those on standard dialysis (RR=0.56; 95% C.I. 0.34-0.92; p=0.02) (20). The relationship between the amount of substitution fluids and the risk of developing dialysis-related amyloidosis has been further confirmed by the Japanese Registry, where it was found to be progressively lower (the ...

Human β2microglobulin is cytophilic for mouse, rat, and to a lesser extent guinea pig lymphocytes and polymorphonuclear leukocytes but not for human, rabbit, chicken, frog, and turtle cells, nor for any mature erythrocytes tested. Mouse splenic lymphocytes bind 5- 7-fold more β2microglobulin than thymocytes although hydrocortisoneresistant thymocytes resemble spleen cells in this regard. The β2microglobulin binding by B and T cells in mouse spleen is similar. The structure responsible for β2 microglobulin binding to the surface of cells is distinct from the Fc receptor specific for aggregated IgG.. ...

Serial determinations of beta 2-microglobulin, lactoferrin and lysozyme in CSF were performed in 14 patients with acute cerebrovascular lesions. Marked elevations were noted in patients with cerebral bleeding or hemorrhagic infarction. Patients with infarction without signs of bleeding or with cerebrovascular lesions undetectable by computed tomography also had an increase in these proteins. The increases in CSF of beta 2-microglobulin, lactoferrin and lysozyme could not be explained by a damaged blood-brain barrier but was believed to be a local product of the central nervous system. Peak levels of lactoferrin and lysozyme were noted on day 2-3 after onset of symptoms. Lactoferrin then declined while lysozyme remained elevated for another few days. beta 2-microglobulin gradually increased reaching peak levels on day 4-5 and remained elevated even 2 weeks after the onset of symptoms. We suggest that the increases of lactoferrin, lysozyme and beta 2-microglobulin reflect various inflammatory ...
The G beta-gamma complex (Gβγ) is a tightly bound dimeric protein complex, composed of one Gβ and one Gγ subunit, and is a component of heterotrimeric G proteins. Heterotrimeric G proteins, also called guanosine nucleotide-binding proteins, consist of three subunits, called alpha, beta, and gamma subunits, or Gα, Gβ, and Gγ. When a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) is activated, Gα dissociates from Gβγ, allowing both subunits to perform their respective downstream signaling effects. One of the major functions of Gβγ is the inhibition of the Gα subunit. The individual subunits of the G protein complex were first identified in 1980 when the regulatory component of adenylate cyclase was successfully purified, yielding three polypeptides of different molecular weights. Initially, it was thought that Gα, the largest subunit, was the major effector regulatory subunit, and that Gβγ was largely responsible for inactivating the Gα subunit and enhancing membrane binding. However, ...
Six consecutive hemodialysis (HD) sessions are evaluated per patient, altogether 10 - 12 stable HD patients (or at least 48 HD sessions altogether). During these six sessions, AN69ST and Fx8 are used on alternate days. Dalteparin is given intravenously as a single bolus dose at start of HD (50% of the conventional dose). Clinical clotting is evaluated visually each hour of HD after blood draining of the venous air trap: 1=no clot, 2=a fibrinous ring, 3=a clot ,1 cm, 4=a clot ,1 cm and 5=coagulated system (stop in HD).. Blood specimens are taken at start and after each hour of HD. Markers of coagulation (prothrombin 1+2) and of platelets (beta-thromboglobulin) are evaluated as well as anti FXa-activity.. The two filters are going to be compared statistically with respect to the degree of clinical clotting and of intravascular coagulation and platelets activation. ...

Human blood platelets were stored for five days as concentrates in 60 mL of: (a) plasma; (b) non-plasma medium with anticoagulant; and (c) non-plasma medium without anticoagulant. All preparations were equally functional when tested for platelet aggregation and release reaction in response to single agonist or synergistic pairs of agonists in vitro. Platelets stored in non-plasma medium with anti-coagulant had lower kallikrein, fibrino(gen)peptide A, lactate, and beta-thromboglobulin than did plasma controls after five days. In vivo recovery and survival of platelets stored in non-plasma medium with anticoagulant were 51.2% +/- 4.3% and 8.7 +/- 0.3 days, respectively, which were not statistically different from plasma controls of 39.2% +/- 4.9% and 7.2 +/- 0.8 days, respectively. It is concluded that platelets can be stored for five days in a non-plasma medium and still have good in vivo recoveries and survivals. ...
