, polypeptide hormone secreted by the posterior pituitary gland. Its principal action is to regulate the amount of water excreted by the kidneys. Antidiuretic hormone (ADH), known also as vasopressin, causes the kidneys to resorb water directly from the

Since the initial report by Page et al (2) in 1985, women with ADH have been recognized as a group at an increased risk for carcinoma.
melanogaster, more than 90% of ethanol is metabolized via the ADH system, and ADH and ALDH activities regulated by dietary ethanol, suggesting that ADH activity reflects the capacity for ethanol tolerance (Geer et al.
ADH was added on the serosal compartment, and 200 [micro]l of sample was collected after an hour.
ADH has likewise been considered to be a common histologic precursor to breast malignancies and, as such, surgery has been regularly advocated.
Subsequently, the absorbance from the hydrazide groups on bead cellulose (10 and 100 [micro]L) with functional group concentrations of 0.075 and 0.75 mmol was compared with the signal from the ADH solution with the same concentration of hydrazide groups as on the bead cellulose (Figure 2(d)).
Measurements (n = 8 - 12 per group on 24 lots: pooled samples on AdH cell cultures) of ACTH and PRL hormone release by disease (PRLOMA versus normal AdH) in various EDC groups (control, dClB, mClB, PU, MU, and DU) by regulation (basal, +AVP, +B, +B +AVP, and +AVP+B) were compared using mixed models on rats [46, 47].
In experiments with encapsulation of ADH and ALD by three-step dialysis, RBCs after the second step were immediately dialyzed the third time against a hypotonic solution (osmotic pressure 79-104 mOsmol/kg) containing 100 [micro]M [NAD.sup.+].
To date, seven different ADH genes--ADH1A, ADH IB, ADH 1C, ADH4, ADH5, ADH6, and ADH7--have been identified clustered together on the long arm of chromosome 4 (Edenberg 2007).
After that, the reaction mixture was cooled to about 40[degrees]C, the pH value was adjusted in the range of 7-8 by ammonia, and then 60 g de-ionized water and ADH were added with m(ADH)/m(DAAM) ratio from 0:1 to 1:1.
(1), (2) Typically, antidiuretic hormone (ADH) regulates water permeability in the collecting duct of the nephron, allowing water to be reabsorbed through simple diffusion in the kidney's collecting duct (Figure, page 44).
Silpuran 2438 ADH silicone adhesive is suitable for bonding textiles and siliconized composites of the kind typically employed in prosthetics.
Under ordinary circumstances, blood osmolality is controlled by a combination of vasopressin [antidiuretic hormone (ADH)] release from the posterior pituitary and thirst-driven water ingestion.
