An investigation using cultured human cell lines, of the involvement of vanadium, cation transport and phosphatidylinositol in the aetiology of bipolar manic-depressive psychosis
(University of St Andrews, 1986-12) - Thesis,
The symptoms, classification, occurrence and possible aetiologies of bipolar manic-depressive psychosis have been reviewed, with particular emphasis on the possible role of the vanadate ion (V5+) and cation transport in ...
The regulation of haemopoietic stem cell and progenitor cell proliferation by humoral factors
(University of St Andrews, 1984) - Thesis,
The mechanisms which regulate the growth fraction of the haemopoietic stem cell (CFU-S) and granulocyte macrophage progenitor cell (GM-CFC) have been investigated. In normal murine bone marrow (NMBM) a small proportion ...
A study of the nitroprusside anion and some of its analogues
(University of St Andrews, 1981-10) - Thesis,
Sodium nitroprusside is a potent vasodilator and is widely used for lowering the blood pressure during major surgery. The physiological response is said to occur due to a nitrosation reaction at the smooth muscle membrane. ...
Studies of serum and erythrocyte membrane proteins in cystic fibrosis and Duchenne muscular dystrophy
(University of St Andrews, 1981-09) - Thesis,
(I) Recent research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy lends support to the notion that the genetic defect may affect the surface membranes of not only muscle cells but other cells particularly erythrocytes. Abnormalities in ...
