Similarly, applications of the AGA uncoupler yielded 66% [+ or -] 33% and 33% [+ or -] 22% levels of GVBD and successful ovulation, respectively (n = 6), which in turn suggests that the drug treatment may have also affected the transmission of signals that enable ovulation to proceed normally.
Bioaccumulation of Xenobiotic Toxicants * Heavy Metal Metabolic Uncouplers such as: lead mercury arsenic cadmium aluminum nickel * Nonbiodegradable Metabolic Uncouplers such as: polyhalogenated heterocyclics, pesticides and PCBs/PBBs * Enzyme Inhibitors such as Cholinesterase Inhibitors * Membrane Fluidity Interferences: solvent residues trans fatty acids
After each colony was tested, a control experiment was carried out with the same five colonies and an identical protocol, except that instead of adding uncoupler, plain seawater was added prior to the second measure of the decline in oxygen concentration.
The suppression of dye exchange in the presence of the uncoupler octanol also reinforces the notion that dye exchange occurred via connexon-related channels.
We used the uncoupler FCCP to optimize the assay signal window to detect a decrease in red fluorescence (i.
An uncoupler is able to dissipate the proton gradient over the inner mitochondrial membrane and thereby to reinitiate the electron and oxygen flow even when the mitochondrial ATPase is inhibited.

2], cells were pretreated with the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate oxidase inhibitors apocynin or DPI, the epidermal growth factor receptor kinase activity inhibitor C56, the phosphoinositide 3-kinase activity inhibitors wortmannin or Ly294002, the Rac GTPase kinase inhibitor EHT 1864, or the mitochondrial uncoupler CCCP, prior to exposure to [Zn.
The addition of CCCP, a protonophore uncoupler, led to a quick dissipation of the [DELTA][PSI]m (Figure 3A).
