Absorption of liver folates from small intestinal segments of the rat


, : Absorption of liver folates from small intestinal segments of the rat. Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 142(2): 387-389

Female rats weighing about 100 g in individual metabolism cages were fed on Purina chow (controls) or on a diet low in folacin for 20 days; the third group were given 1 mg folic acid (PGA) by subcutaneous injection 3 h before the experiment. Livers were obtained from 2 rats given at 48-h intervals 3 injections of 200 mu Ci PGA-3H and killed 3 days after the last; folacin was estimated with Lactobacillus casei and its fractions by column chromatography, and its specific activity was calculated.

A translocation of protein kinase C (PKC) from cytosol to plasma membrane has been reported as an association with agonist-induced Ca2+ sensitization in smooth muscle contraction. Therefore, it is possible that a downstream target of PKC, CPI-17 [...

Three experiments are described on the effects on flowering of warm storage of narcissus bulbs before (and in some cases after) hot-water treatment (h.w.t.) against eelworm infection. Almost complete loss of the flower crop occurs if the bulbs are...
