Melatonin plays an important role in aging and relevant neurodegeneration as an antioxidant and neuroprotector. It can interact with β-amyloid (Aβ) generation, inhibit formation of β-sheet and amyloid fibrils, modulate apoptosis, and protect cholinergic system function in Alzheimer's disease animal model. Recently, its effects on anesthetic-induced(More)
Cardiac pheochromocytoma is relatively rare. Few reports describe the intraoperative and postoperative progression of patients experiencing a life-threatening pheochromocytoma crisis treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).A 35-year-old man was referred to our facility for paroxysmal hypertension with a 10-year history of sweating,(More)

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of endogenous enkephalin in the cerebral antihyperalgesic action of gabapentin. Neuropathic pain models and antihyperalgesic effect of gabapentin were confirmed by the presentation and changes of mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia of operated mouse hind paws. The results suggested that endogenous(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of melatonin on voltage-gated delayed rectifier potassium channels. METHODS Hippocampus neurons were obtained from newborn Wistar rat and cultured. Primary cultured for 7 to 12 days of new-born Wistar rat were selected as objectives. Patch clamp whole-cell recording technique was used on the hippocampus neurons(More)
