Associations of Electric Impedance with chemical compounds

  • RESULTS: Basal transepithelial electrical resistance (TER) and mannitol fluxes were not significantly different between groups [27].
  • Histamine also increased antral electrical resistance and decreased the unidirectional luminal to serosal flux (Jls) of (14)c-erythritol [28].
  • The effect of back diffusion of H+ PON THE POTENTIAL DIFFERence (PD), electrical resistance (R), and short circuit current (Isc) of spontaneously secreting and burimamide-inhibited amphibian gastric mucosae were studied in vitro [29].
  • When 31EG4 cells were grown on permeable supports for 4 days in medium containing the synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone and insulin, confluent cell monolayers obtained a transepithelial electrical resistance (TER) of 1000-3000 omega.cm2 [30].
  • Ketoconazole, an epoxygenase inhibitor, had virtually no effects on PAC-1 cell Cl- conductance but caused CFPAC-1 cells to develop a cAMP-insensitive Cl- conductance, blocked Cl- and fluid absorption, and reduced transepithelial electrical resistance [31].

Gene context of Electric Impedance

  • IL-4 and IL-13 dose-dependently decreased transepithelial electrical resistance of monolayers of rat GVEC to approximately 30 and 40% of baseline values, respectively [32].
  • Body composition was assessed by bioelectrical impedance analysis; fasting blood samples were taken for the measurement of total leptin, sOB-R, adiponectin, and resistin; and the ratio leptin/sOB-R was used as an index of free leptin [33].
  • Elastases from porcine pancreas and human leukocytes with similar enzymatic activity (6 U/ml) did not decrease transmonolayer electrical resistance or degrade ZO-1 [34].
  • Coincubation is sufficient to maintain the transmonolayer electrical resistance (TER) of EHEC-infected cells, whereas the preincubation of cells with the yeast without elimination of the yeast during infection is necessary to significantly decrease IL-8 secretion [35].
  • Body composition (bioelectrical impedance), functional capacity (lung function, incremental cycle ergometry test, submaximal cycle test, isokinetic quadriceps strength) and inflammatory markers (C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6 and tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha) were assessed at baseline and after 8 weeks [36].
