The effect of an aldosterone antagonist on the protective action of carbenoxolone sodium on the gastric mucosal barrier has been studied in three dogs with Heidenhain pouches. The net fluxes of hydrogen ion and sodium ion were measured before, during, and after contact with a 10 mM bile acid solution at pH 2, in pouches which had not been treated with drugs, in pouches treated with carbenoxolone sodium and in pouches treated with both carbenoxolone sodium and the aldosterone antagonist, spironolactone. Hydrogen ion back diffusion from, and sodium ion gain by the untreated pouch was increased by 10 mM bile acid solution. Addition to the pouches of either carbenoxolone sodium alone or carbenoxolone sodium and spironolactone reduced the hydrogen ion back diffusion after exposure to the bile acid solution. The spironolactone did not change the protective effect of carbenoxolone on the gastric mucosal barrier. Carbenoxolone did not change the increased sodium ion diffusion caused by bile.

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.

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
