Psychological acute stress measurement using a wireless adhesive biosensor.
In Conf Proc Ieee Eng Med Biol Soc, Aug 2015
During the study, the subjects filled out state anxiety form-Y1 of the State Anxiety Inventory questionnaire (sSTAI); salivary samples were obtained for salivary alpha-amylase (sAA) and salivary cortisol (sC) measurements; and the HealthPatch sensor data were wirelessly acquired.
Biomarkers of stress in behavioural medicine.
Marburg an der Lahn, Germany. In Curr Opin Psychiatry, 2013
We will present findings on commonly used stress biomarkers (cortisol, alpha-amylase, pro-inflammatory cytokines) regarding alterations in basal activity and stress-dependent reactivity in these systems, and discuss selected findings on intervention-induced changes of these biomarkers.
A single mouse alpha-amylase gene specifies two different tissue-specific mRNAs.
In Cell, 1981
The alpha-amylase mRNAs which accumulate in two different tissues of the mouse, the salivary gland and the liver, are identical except for their 5' non-translated sequences: the 5' terminal 158 nucleotides of the major liver alpha-amylase mRNA are unrelated to the 5' terminal 47 nucleotides found in its salivary gland counterpart.
Asymmetry, its importance to the action and metabolism of abscisic Acid.
In Science, 1971
Unlabeled and (14)C-labeled enantiomorphs of abscisic acid (ABA) were obtained through acetylcellulose chromatography and tested as inducers of abscission, as inhibitors of seed germination, and as antagonists of gibberellic acid-induced synthesis and release of alpha-amylase.
