release of STH (and also other peptide hormones including insulin, glucagon, and gastrin). PRH: prolactin-RH remains to be characterized or established. Both TRH and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) are implicated. PRIH inhibits the release of prolactin and could be identical with dopamine. Hypothalamic releasing hormones are mostly administered (parenterally) for diagnostic reasons to test AH function. Therapeutic control of AH cells. GnRH is used in hypothalamic infertility in women to stimulate FSH and LH secretion and to induce ovulation.
Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) play a major role in animal physiology.
TRs are important and very interesting regulators of diverse aspects, including
brain development, hearing, bone growth, morphogenesis, metabolism, intestine,
and heart rate in vertebrates (Fig. 1). Aberrant functions of TRs induce
tremendous defects in these pathways. For example, the human disease of
Resistance to Thyroid Hormone (RTH) (see Chapter 8 by Yoh and Privalsky)
is a genetically autosomal dominant inherited syndrome that is caused by mutations
in the gene encoding the TRβ.
EnterohemorrhagicEscherichia coli(EHEC) and enteropathogenic Escheri-chia coli (EPEC) are attaching⁄effacing pathogens that possess a type III
secretion system and deliver a variety of effectors into host cells for suc-cessful infection. EHEC produces at least 20 effector families with various
The cardiac hormones atrial natriuretic peptide and B-type natriuretic pep-tide (brain natriuretic peptide) activate guanylyl cyclase (GC)-A⁄natriuretic
peptide receptor-A (NPRA) and produce the second messenger cGMP.
GC-A⁄NPRA is a member of the growing family of GC receptors.
Molecular probes are useful for both studying and controlling the functions
of enzymes and other proteins. The most useful probes have high affinity
for their target, along with small size and resistance to degradation. Here,
we report on new surrogates for nucleic acids that fulfill these criteria.
A naturally occurring variant of the human androgen receptor (AR) named
AR45 has been identified. It lacks the entire region encoded by exon 1 of the
ARgene and is composed of the AR DNA-binding domain, hinge region
and ligand-binding domain, preceded by a novel seven amino-acid long
N-terminal extension. A survey of human tissues revealed that AR45 was
expressed mainly in heart and skeletal muscle. In cotransfection experiments,
AR45 inhibited AR function, an effect necessitating intact DNA- and
ligand-binding properties. ...
gp130 is the common signal transducing receptor subunit of interleukin (IL)-6-type cytokines. gp130 either homodimerizes in response to IL-6 and IL-11 or forms heterodimers with the leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) receptor (LIFR) in response to LIF, oncostatin M (OSM), ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1) or cardiotrophinlike cytokine resulting in the onset of cytoplasmic tyrosine phosphorylation cascades. The extracellular parts of both gp130 and LIFR consist of several Ig-like and ﬁbronectin type III-like domains.
Four pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase and two pyruvate
dehydrogenase phosphatase isoforms function in adjusting
the activation state of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex
(PDC) through determining the fraction of active (non-phosphorylated) pyruvate dehydrogenase component.
Necessary adaptations of PDC activity with varying meta-bolic requirements in different tissues and cell types are met
by the selective expression and pronounced variation in the
inherent functional properties and effector sensitivities of
these regulatory enzymes. ...
ATP-regenerating enzymes may have an important role in
maintaining ATP levels in mitochondria-like kinetoplast
organelle and glycosomes in parasitic protozoa. Adenylate
kinase (AK) (ATP:AMP phosphotransferase) catalyses the
reversible transfer of thec-phosphate group from ATP to
AMP, releasing twomolecules ofADP. This study describes
cloningand functional characterizationof the gene encoding
its expression in leishmania promastigote cultures.
Steroids - From Physiology to Clinical Medicine covers contemporary basic science on steroids research, along with steroids practical application in clinical medicine. We start by describing physiological and pathophysiological roles of steroids, with reference to production and action of gonadal steroids, role of steroid sulfonation, sex specific and steroids-dependent mechanism of hippocampal function, and the hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases for the modulation of tissue glucocorticoid availability.
We are very pleased to launch the 23rd edition of
Review of Medical Physiology
. The current authors have attempted
to maintain the highest standards of excellence, accuracy,
and pedagogy developed by Fran Ganong over the 46
years in which he educated countless students worldwide
with this textbook.
At the same time, we have been attuned to the evolving
needs of both students and professors in medical physiology.

THE FORM AND FUNCTION of multicellular organism would not be possible without efficient communication among cells, tissues, and organs. In higher plants, regulation and coordination of metabolism, growth, and morphogenesis often depend on chemical signals from one part of the plant to another. This idea originated in the nineteenth century with the German botanist Julius von Sachs (1832–1897). Sachs proposed that chemical messengers are responsible for the formation and growth of different plant organs.
The authors provided evidence regarding NSAIDs mechanism of
action and NSAIDs management including low-dose aspirin therapy. The discovery of
safe NSAIDs with reduced upper GI toxicity such as selective COX-2 inhibitors is also
presented in this chapter. Vanaskova et al., described the functional disorders of the
GIT, focusing on swallowing dysfunctions in human beings. It is well known that
these disorders are not only difficult to verify and quantify but also difficult to treat.
The discovery of the hormone insulin by Frederick Banting and colleagues in the early
1920’s is one of the greatest medical breakthroughs and has saved millions of lives over the
years. The significance of the discovery is underscored by the fact that type 1 diabetics still
have an absolute requirement for daily injections of insulin to live. Clearly, today’s insulin
treatments have attained levels of sophistication that have greatly improved clinical out‐
Many procedures were introduced to improve the recovery of
postoperative sexual function and urinary incontinence: bladder neck suspension or
reconstruction (Poon et al., 2000), reconstruction of the rhabdosphincter (Rocco et al., 2007),
periurethral suspension of the dorsal vein complex/urethral complex (Patel et al., 2009) and
preservation of the neurovascular bundle (Kaiho et al., 2005), but have failed to solve the
problems completely until now.
In collaboration with the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA), a web-based survey was sent to nearly half of their national LTC members by Mather Lifeways Institute on Aging in March 2005. There were respondents from 194 of these facilities across 30 states. Half of the respondents were from CCRF, while the other half were from nursing homes. This was done to determine the need for training within the LTC workforce. Questions were aimed at preparedness for public health emergencies, including the threat of bioterrorism (BT).

The half-life of UPA is 32.4 hours, which means that most of the drug is eliminated by 1 week
and the interaction with hormonal contraception is likely to be clinically insignificant by this
time. If a hormonal method is quick started the CEU advises use of additional contraceptive
precautions for 1 week after taking UPA plus the time required for contraceptive efficacy to
be established (see Summary on page iv).
