Thermogenic response of guinea pig adipocytes to noradrenaline and β3-AR agonists

Brown adipocytes isolated from warm acclimated guinea pig do not respond to noradrenaline (NA) in spite of their marked thermogenic response in vivo. In contrast, in cold-acclimated guinea pigs, isolated brown adipocytes show substantial increase in capacity for a thermogenic response to NA. Chronic stimulation with a β3-AR agonist increased insulin-sensitivity of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in the guinea pig....

Intraspecific diversity of Egyptian and foreign new lines of chickpea based on Sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and isozyme markers

Four Egyptian and 21 foreign new lines of kabuli chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) were analyzed by using biochemical molecular markers to gain insight into the genetic diversity between accessions. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) was applied on the total soluble seed proteins by using sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) and five isozyme systems to examine the storage and functional components, respectively. The storage...
