Example text

Collectively, the picture is one of peripheral GH resistance. GH drives direct lipolytic, insulin-antagonizing, and immune stimulatory actions— actions that appear to prioritize essential fuels (glucose, free fatty acids, and glutamine) for hypermetabolic, if catabolic, survival. Within a few hours of acute stress, and persisting through the first and second hypermetabolic phases, serum levels of the active form of thyroid hormone, triiodothyronine, are depressed. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) sustains release of T4 from the thyroid gland, but peripheral conversion to T3 is suppressed in favor of conversion to the inactive reverse T3 form.

Manipulations aimed at the network of hypothalamic molecules that regulate release of pituitary hormones have shown some promise in reversing adverse metabolic effects of stress. qxd 4/20/06 11:43 AM Page 30 Section 1 Basic Biology and Critical Care Medicine First-generation approaches included administration of GH, testosterone, and the testosterone analog oxandrolone to critically ill patients. In general, studies showed that these agents either had negligible effect or caused adversity. ) Second-generation approaches focused on upstream regulators and downstream effectors of GH.

Indeed, mice with gene deletion of one of the units of this channel develop hypertension. 7, several vasodilator factors that utilize the cAMP and the cGMP (and their respective kinases, PKA and PKG) pathways utilize activation of BKCa2+ channels as a mechanism of vasodilation. NO, via its activation of guanylate cyclase and generation of cGMP, is among the ligands capable of activating BKCa2+. In addition, NO is capable of directly activating BKCa2+ in the absence of cGMP. This novel mechanism of action, which depends on nitrosylation of thiol groups, is emerging as an important mechanism for regulating protein function.
