Liver function; a symposium on approaches to the quantitative description of liver function by Ralph W Brauer( Book )

6 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barobiology and the experimental biology of the deep sea : proceedings of the first Symposium on High Pressure Aquarium Systems as Tools for the Study of the Biology of Deep Ocean Fauna and Associated Biological Problems by Symposium on High Pressure Aquarium Systems as Tools for the Study of the Biology of Deep Ocean Fauna and Associated Biological Problems( Book )

10 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The monograph reviews various factors to be taken into consideration in design and application of high pressure aquarium systems to the study of the biology of deep sea fauna. The topics covered include biological and oceanographic problems requiring high pressure aquaria; observations on deep sea fauna, in situ experiments, methods of retrieving deep ocean fauna, and choice of potential biological materials for study in high pressure aquaria; chemical aspects--sensors, properties of solutions, and of macromolecules; high pressure aquaria--general design characteristics; and, design and performance characteristics of currently existing high pressure aquarium systems. The monograph consists of formal contributions by 50 authors representing research efforts in six nations, supplemented by transcripts of discussions critically reviewing or extending the information provided in the formal communications.

Limited effectiveness of anoxic anoxia in protecting against residual radiation injury in mammals by J. S Krebs( )

4 editions published between 1960 and 1961 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The protective effect of anoxic anoxia against residual biological effects of irradiation was measured and compared with the protective effect against acute injury. It was found that a degree of hypoxia sufficient to reduce the effective radiation dose for acute injury by more than half, failed to protect significantly against residual injury. The protective effect of the hypoxia against chronic or repeated radiation injury was intermediate between that for acute and for residual injury. (Author)

Residual injury caused by irradiation with fast neutrons by J. S Krebs( )

3 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The LD 50 of C[3H female mice for fission-spectrum neutrons was found to be 274.5 #+ 4.2 rad. The previously reported value in the same mice for 250 kvp X ray was 632 rad, giving an RBE of 2.30. Conditioning exposure of the mice to a total neutron dose of 482.3 #+ 7.2 rad over an interval of 8-10 weeks resulted in lowering the LD 50 for neutrons by 41.8 #+ 5.9 rad, or 8.67 #+ 1.23 percent of the total conditioning dose. The previously reported value in the same mice for 250 kvp X ray was 9.58 percent of the conditioning dose. Continued exposure of the mice to 166 rad doses of neutrons at intervals of 4-5 weeks gave a median survival time of 22 weeks. This was greater than that produced by exposure to 420 rad and less than that produced by exposure to 280 rad of 250 kvp X ray given at the same time
Critical studies on the determination of the thyroid secretion rate in cold-adapted animals by O Heroux( )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is ample evidence in the literature showing that cold adaptation in mammals can be accompanied by increased as well as by decreased thyroid activity. Measurement of thyroid secretion rate by determining the amount of L-thyroxine required to bloc the thyroidal I131 release, according to Perry's method, revealed that the thyroxine requirement of 6 degrees C-acclimated rats was twice as high as that of controls (5.5 = 0.7 micrograms/100g/day against 2.73 = 0.3 micrograms /100g/day for the controls). The requirement of the white rats acclimatized to cold outdoors during the winter on the other hand, was less than in the controls (1.8 micrograms/100g/day). The larger amount of thyroxine found in the feces of the 6 degrees C-acclimated rats (5.75 = 0.3 micrograms/day as compared to 2.84 = 0.4 micrograms/ day for the controls), the similar rate of urinary elimination of I131 in both groups, and the greater fecal elimination of the same isotope in the 6 degrees C-rats indicates that the greater requirement for thyroxine in these animals is at least partly due to increased fecal loss of the hormone.

The effect of high protein diets on renal hypertrophy in rats following whole-body irradiation by Frank Konishi( )

3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between high protein intake and increase in kidney weight was investigated in rats exposed to a single dose of 375 rad X-irradiation. Attempts were made to characterize the degree of renal hypertrophy and hyperplasia nvolved by employing irradiation as an inhibitor of cellular proliferation. Rats were fed a high protein diet and exposed to irradiation at various points of the feeding regime. The high protein diet significantly increased kidney weight in all cases but the increase was not influenced by the X-ray dose employed, or time of administration. However, histological studies of the kidneys showed that irradiation reduced the incidences of abnormal tubular hyperplasia. The renal lesions also appeared much earlier than previously reported by other investigators. Rats fed high protein diets appeared to recover body weight loss from the irradiation at a faster rate than those fed a basal diet. A possible mechanism is briefly discussed. (Author)

The estimation of the non-recuperable injury caused by ionizing radiation by J. S Krebs( )

2 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposure of mice to a non-lethal course of X-ray treatment results in a reduction in tolerance of mice to further X-ray treatment. The reduction in tolerance to X-ray amounts to a decrease of the acute LD50 by an average of 9.6 percent of the total amount of the non-lethal radiation previously given. The time of death after the LD50 test and the slope of the dose-response curve are not changed by the non-lethal radiation previously given, and it is inferred from this that the mechanism of acute death and the distribution of radiation sensitivity are not changed. The injury found does not account for the observed mortality of animals from chronically imposed radiation

Oxygen consumption by the isolated rat liver : effects of hematocrit, temperature, perfusion rate and oxygen tension by Ralph W Brauer( )

4 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H EPATIC OXYGEN UPTAKE IN THE R T APPEARS TO BE F R ORE RAPID THAN RE LIZ D H RETOFOR, A, ON TH BASIS OF T E PRES NT RESULTS, IS LIKELY TO CONTRIBUTE ABOUT <%% to the basal metabolic rate of t is species. S veral lines of inv stigation point to a peculiarity in the oxygen delivery from the circulating erythrocytes to the parenchymal cells of the liver, a relation not readily explainable in terms of the conventional concept of oxygen diffusion through an aqueous phase, inert or re piring. Comp riso of th effects of perfusion rate and of oxygen saturation changes on the rate of hepa ic oxygen consumption leads to a paradoxical situation unless one hypothesizes that the hepatic cell population is heterogeneous with respect to the dependence of cell respiration on oxygen delivery. This heterogeneity, it is suggest d, is represented by the zon l differenti tion b tween peripheral and centrilobular liv r cells. (Author)
