The lipid habitats of neurotransmitter receptors in brain
(Elsevier Science, 2016-11)
Neurotransmitter receptors, the macromolecules specialized in decoding the chemical signals encrypted in the chemical signaling mechanism in the nervous system, occur either at the somatic cell surface of chemically excitable ...
Electrogravimetric Analysis by Quartz-Crystal Microbalance on the Consumption of the Neurotransmitter Acetylcholine by Acetylcholinesterase
Electrogravimetric analysis was performed on the consumption of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine (ACh) by Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in situ and in real time. Michaelis-Menten assumption was achieved by using an enzyme ...
NBAD-hydrolase processing in brain and epidermis of Drosophila melanogaster
(University of Oklahoma, 2011-03)
Drosophila melanogaster genes ebony and tan are responsible for the synthesis and hydrolysis of N-â-alanylderivatives of biogenic amines, such as N-â-alanyldopamine (NBAD) and N-â- alanylhistamine (carcinine). These are ...
Capillary electrophoresis of neurotransmitters with amperometric detection at melanin-type polymer-modified carbon electrodes
(Elsevier Science, 2004-10)
This paper reports on the advantages of combining the separation capability of capillary electrophoresis using a novel home-made electrochemical cell adapted to commercially available capillary electrophoresis equipment ...
Effects of bilateral adrenalectomy on systemic kainate-induced activation of the nucleus of the solitary tract. Regulation of blood pressure and local neurotransmitters
Glutamatergic transmission through metabotropic and ionotropic receptors, including kainate receptors, plays an important role in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) functions. Glutamate system may interact with several ...
Unconventional neurotransmitters, neurodegeneration and neuroprotection
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2009)
Neurotransmitters are also involved in functions other than conventional signal transfer between nerve cells, such as development, plasticity, neurodegeneration, and neuroprotection. For example, there is a considerable ...
Wnt signalling tunes neurotransmitter release by directly targeting Synaptotagmin-1
(Macmillan Publishers, 2015)
The functional assembly of the synaptic release machinery is well understood; however, how signalling factors modulate this process remains unknown. Recent studies suggest that Wnts play a role in presynaptic function. To ...
Enfermedad de Alzheimer: Actualización en terapia farmacológica

Protein kinase A mediates adenosine A2a receptor modulation of neurotransmitter release via synapsin I phosphorylation in cultured cells from medulla oblongata
Synaptic transmission is an essential process for neuron physiology. Such process is enabled in part due to modulation of neurotransmitter release. Adenosine is a synaptic modulator of neurotransmitter release in the Central ...
