Radioimmunoassay for adenosine 3', 5'-cyclic monophosphate and guanosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate in human blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid

[More] I describe a highly sensitive and very specific assay for cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP in body fluids. An adaptation of the method of Harper and Brooker [j. cyclic Nucleotide Res. 1,207 (1975)], its advantage lies in the fact that the simple acetylation of the samples--a procedure developed by these workers--greatly increases specificity and sensitivity beyond those of previous methods and permits the measurement of femtomole quantities of both cyclic nucleotides without prepurification. Because the range of the cyclic AMP assay is 20-200 fmol, and that of cyclic GMP 10-15 fmol, experiments can be performed with use of only microliters of fluid. The method requires no extraction and thus no complicated corrections are necessary for analytical recovery.

Solubilization and characterization of hormone- responsive phosphodiesterase activity of rat fat cells

[More] Fat cells particulate phosphodiesterase activity can be solubilized in high yield (80--100%) in a buffer system (30 mM Tris - HCl, pH 8.0) containing non-ionic detergents (0.1% Brij 30, 1.0% Triton X-100), salt (3.0 mM MgSO4, 5.0 mM NaBr) and dithiothreitol (5.0 mM). Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of the solubilized enzyme activity indicated the presence of two bands of activities of different electrophoretic mobilities, both of which hydrolyzed cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP. The solubilized activity eluted from DEAE Bio-Gel columns as a somewhat broad profile with at least two peaks of activity. Activity against both cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP eluted in similar but not identical patterns. The solubilized enzyme and DEAE column eluates wxhibited low (less than 1 micronM) Michaelis constants for cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP. In addition, the increases in phosphodiesterase activity induced by incubation of intact fat cells with insulin or adrenocorticotropic hormone are maintained in the solubilized state.

[More] The postvagotomy syndrome following the operative section of the vagus nerves is characterized by diarrhoea. The incidence of diarrhoea after truneal vagotomy is about 25%, after selective vagotomy 15% and after proximal selective vagotomy only 2%. The possible pathogenetic factors are accelerated passage through the gut, disturbed bile acid metabolism, the bacterical inflammation of the small intestine, and enterohormonal dysregulation. A cholongenetic diarrhoea is probable because after vagotomy the excretion of bile acids is increased and the diarrhoea is interrupted after administring cholestyramin, which absorbs the bile salts in the intestine. In addition the pathogenetic role of an impaired function of the ileocecal valve should be discussed.

Effects of acetazolamide on proximal tubule C1, Na, and HCO3 transport in normal and acidotic dogs during distal blockade

[More] It has been suggested that the establishment of a tubular fluid to plasma chloride gradient in the late proximal tubule by the reabsorption of bicarbonate (and other anions) in the early proximal tubule is responsible for a significant part of sodium chloride and water reabsorption in the proximal tubule. In the present study the effects of acetazolamide on proximal tubule water and electrolyte excretion were examined in 6 normal dogs and 10 chronic ammonium chloride-loaded dogs during distal blockade produced by ethacrynic acid and chlorothiazide administration. During distal blockade control urine/plasma osmolality and urine/plasma sodium were close to unity in all experiments. Urine/plasma chloride and urine/plasma bicarbonate were 1.21+/-0.02 and 0.75+/-0.07 in normal and 1.24+/-0.01 and 0.04+/-0.01 in acidotic dogs, respectively. After the administration of acetazolamide (20 mg/kg i.v.), there was a significant increase in urine flow, absolute and fractional excretion of sodium, bicarbonate, and chloride in all animals. Associated with these effects, urine/plasma osmolality and urine/plasma sodium remained unchanged but urine/plasma chloride decreased significantly to 1.15+/-0.01 in normal and to 1.19+/-0.01 in acidotic dogs. In acidotic dogs there was a significant correlation between the increase in bicarbonate, sodium, or chloride excretion after acetazolamide and the plasma bicarbonate level (range 6.8-12.5 meq/liter). These data demonstrate a significant effect of acetazolamide on bicarbonate, sodium, and chloride reabsorption in the proximal tubule even in the face of severe acidosis. Moreover, the data suggest that the decrease in chloride reabsorption (and accompanying sodium) after acetazolamide is related to the decrease in bicarbonate reabsorption and the associated decrease in the transtubular chloride gradient.
