Effects of parathyroid hormone on cyclic-AMP concentrations of in vitro Necturus maculosus gastric antrum

General and Comparative Endocrinology

The effects of bovine parathyroid hormone (bPTH1-84) on the stimulation of intracellular cyclic-AMP [cAMP] were investigated in an in vitro preparation of Necturus maculosus antral mucosa. When the antrum was exposed to 1, 5, 10, or 100 nM bPTH1-84, there was an approximately 2-fold nonlinear increase in tissue [cAMP] over basal values. The pretreatment of the antral mucosa with 1 mM isobutylmethylxanthine (IBMX, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor) increased with detectability of mucosal [cAMP]. The addition of 1, 5, 10, or 100 nM bPTH1-84 to tissues pretreated with IBMX resulted in an approximately 3.5-fold linear increase in mucosal [cAMP] over basal values. The time course of the generation of mucosal cAMP to 10 nM bPTH1-84 resulted in a small but significant transient increase at 2.5 min after the addition of bPTH1-84 but no change in the medium [cAMP]. In tissues pretreated with 1 mM IBMX the response to 10 nM bPTH1-84 was a large biphasic increase of [cAMP] at 2.5 min that progressively declined to near basal values by 15 min. There was also a significant sustained increase in the [cAMP] in the bathing medium at 2.5 min of tissues pretreated with IBMX followed by 10 nM bPTH1-84. These results suggest the presence of an adenyla...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
