Differential phosphorylation, desensitization, and internalization of α1A-adrenoceptors activated by norepinephrine and oxymetazoline
Loss of response on repetitive drug exposure (i.e., tachyphylaxis) is a particular problem for the vasoconstrictor effects of medications containing oxymetazoline (OXY), an α1-adrenoceptor (AR) agonist of the imidazoline ...
The central amygdala regulates sodium intake in sodium-depleted rats: role of 5-HT3 and 5-HT2C receptors
In the present paper, we have evaluated the participation of 5-HT3 and 5-HT2C receptors in the central amygdala (CeA) in the regulation of water and salt intake in sodium-depleted rats. m-CPBG-induced pharmacological ...
Electrophysiology and plasticity in isolated postsynaptic densities
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2004-12)
The organization and regulation of excitatory synapses in the mammalian CNS entails complex molecular and cellular processes. In the postsynaptic membrane, scaffolding proteins bring together glutamate receptors with ...
Arginine-Vasopressin regulates intracellular pH via V1 and V2 receptors in renal collecting duct cells
Arginine-vasopressin (AVP) has been proposed to be involved in the modulation of acid-base transporters; however, the nature of the mechanisms underlying AVP direct action on intracellular pH (pH(i)) in the cortical ...
Updates and New Concepts in Regulation of Proinflammatory Gene Expression by Steroid Hormones
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2018)
Glucocorticoids mobilize macrophages by transcriptionally up-regulating the exopeptidase DPP4
(American Society of Biochemistry Molecular Biology, 2020)
Regulation of angiotensin II receptors levels during rat induced pulpitis
A change in the microcirculatory hemodynamic is one of the most important events in inflammation. In the dental pulp, which is a connective tissue surrounded by a mineralized dentine substrate, disturbance in the blood ...
Perfil fisiológico de la leptina.
Introducción: La leptina fue descubierta en el contexto de sus efectos sobre el control de la alimentación y del gasto energético. Aunque en un principio se pensó que la leptina actuaba sólo sobre ciertos centros hipotalámicos, ...
Cell-surface translational dynamics of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors
Abstract: Synapse efficacy heavily relies on the number of neurotransmitter receptors available at a given time. In addition to the equilibrium between the biosynthetic production, exocytic delivery and recycling of receptors ...
