Because of potential interference of hawthorn with the polyclonal antibody-based serum digoxin immunoassay and competition between hawthorn and digoxin for possible binding to the same site of Na, K adenosine triphosphatase, thus interacting pharmacodynamically with digoxin, it is advisable that a patient receiving digoxin should not take hawthorn.
The uvulae were serially sectioned and stained with a solution specific for membrane-bound calcium-modulated adenosine triphosphatase, a high concentration of which is found in taste receptors.
Histochemical analyses were performed on ventricular muscles submitted to nicotinamide--adenine--dinucleotide tetrazolium reductase (NADH-TR), succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), and myofibrillar adenosine triphosphatase (mATPase) reactions.
Immunohistochemically and histochemically, LCs are positive for S100, CD1a, peanut agglutinin lectin, and adenosine triphosphatase. (6) Markers traditionally associated with conventional histiocytes (eg, CD15, CD68) may also be expressed by LCs.
Routine light microscopic sections reviewed in each case included sections stained with hematoxylin-eosin, Gomori trichrome, esterase, adenosine triphosphatase (pH 4.6 and 9.8), cytochrome C oxidase, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (reduced form), sulfonated Alcian blue, periodic acid-Schiff, and oil red O.
