    Description / Table of Contents: Aus Poly(oxytetramethylen), 4,4′-Bibenzyldiisocyanat, N-Methyldiethanolamin als Kettenverlängerer und Acrylsäure/Polyacrylsäure als Quaternisierungsagens wurden Poly(etherurethan)-Kationomere hergestellt. In aus diesen Kationomeren hergestellten Filmen wurde Pyrrol (15 Gew.-%) in Gegenwart von CuCl2 polymerisiert. Die Filme wurden mittels dynamisch-mechanischer Analyse, Thermogravimetrie und Differentialthermoanalyse charakterisiert. Die elektrische Leitfähigkeit beträgt für den Film ohne Polypyrrol 7.5 · 10-12 Ω-1 cm-1 und mit Polypyrrol 4.5 · 10-6 Ω-1 cm-1.
    Notes: Poly(ether urethane) cationomers based on poly(oxytetramethylene), 4,4′-bibenzyldiisocyanate, N-methyldiethanolamine as chain extender, and acrylic acid/poly(acrylic acid) as quaternization agent were synthesized. Pyrrole (15 wt.%%) was polymerized in films of the ionomer containing CuCl2. The films were characterized by dynamic mechanical analysis, thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry. The electric conductivity of the film without polypyrrole is 7.5 · 10-12 Ω-1 cm-1, while incorporation of polypyrrole increases the conductivity to 4.5 · 10-6 Ω-1 cm-1.

    Notes: Summary The obese Zucker rat represents a model of obesity combined with insulin resistance and hyperlipidaemia, which over a period of several months develops spontaneous glomerulosclerosis. The present study addressed the question as to whether glomerular sclerosis was associated with alterations in the degradation of matrix components. In the early phase (up to 6 months) glomeruli from obese rats displayed increased total collagen content (+ 64 %) and decreased gelatinolytic activity (− 34 %) as compared to lean control animals. This decline in glomerular gelatinolytic activity was due to a reduction in gelatinase B [matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9]. Glomerular MMP-9 mRNA was reduced 4.6 ± 0.6-fold (n = 3; p 〈 0.05), MMP-9 protein was not detectable by Western blotting and MMP-9 activity was considerably suppressed in gelatin zymograms. MMP-2, in terms of mRNA expression and activity, was unchanged. Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP)-1 mRNA expression, TIMP-1 protein (immunohistochemistry) and TIMP-1 activity (reverse zymography) were enhanced in glomeruli from obese rats, while TIMP-2 mRNA remained unchanged. Moreover, mRNA for the α1 IV collagen chain was 2.1 ± 0.8-fold higher in glomeruli isolated from obese animals (n = 3; p 〈 0.05). These findings indicate that matrix expansion in glomeruli from obese Zucker rats is due to both enhanced synthesis of matrix components as well as reduced degradation by matrix metalloproteinases. Apparently the latter effect is based on a reduction in MMP-9 and up-regulation of its inhibitor TIMP-1. [Diabetologia (1997) 40: 1035–1043]
