SR 142948A, 2-[[5-(2,6-dimethoxyphenyl)-1-(4-(N-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-N-methylc arbamoyl)-2-isopropylphenyl)-1H-pyrazole3-carbonyl]amino] adamantane-2-carboxylic acid, hydrochloride, a new and extremely potent neurotensin (NT) receptor antagonist, has been characterized in comparison with SR 48692. This selective compound possesses nanomolar affinities(More)
The human levocabastine-sensitive neurotensin NT2 receptor was cloned from a cortex cDNA library and stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells in order to study its binding and signalling characteristics. The receptor binds neurotensin as well as several other ligands already described for neurotensin NT1 receptor. It also binds levocabastine, a(More)
SR146131 inhibited the binding of [125I]-Bolton Hunter (BH)-sulfated cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8S) for the human recombinant cholecystokinin subtype 1 (CCK1) receptor (IC50 = 0.56 nM) with high (300-fold) selectivity to the CCK2 receptor. The biological activity of SR146131 was characterized in vitro in a NIH-3T3 cell line expressing the human(More)
SR 141716A belongs to a new class of compounds (diarylpyrazole) that inhibits brain cannabinoid receptors (CB1) in vitro and in vivo. The present study showed that [3H]-SR 141716A binds with high affinity (Kd=0.61 +/- 0.06 nM) to a homogenous population of binding sites (Bmax=0.72 +/- 0.05 pmol/mg of protein) in rate whole brain (minus cerebellum)(More)
SR 57227A (4-amino-(6-chloro-2-pyridyl)-1 piperidine hydrochloride) is a novel compound with high affinity and selectivity for the 5-HT3 receptor. The compound had affinities (IC50) varying between 2.8 and 250 nM for 5-HT3 receptor binding sites in rat cortical membranes and on whole NG 108-15 cells or their membranes in vitro, assayed under various(More)
We present the clinical, pathological, biochemical, and molecular results on an infant girl with long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency and data on her deceased elder brother for whom this condition was retrospectively diagnosed. Clinical signs were liver enlargement and elevated liver enzymes, failure to thrive, and neurological(More)
The effect of ¿2-[4-(4-chloro-2, 5-dimethoxy-phenyl)-5-[2-cyclohexyl-ethyl)-thiazol-2-ylcarbamoy l]-5, 7-dimethyl-indol-1-yl¿-acetic acid (SR146131), a novel non-peptide agonist of cholecystokinin (CCK) CCK(1) receptors, was compared to the effect of sulphated cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8-S) on CCK(1) receptors of the human neuroblastoma cell line(More)
Colonization with group B streptococci of the genital tract was studied in 1 115 women during the last trimester of pregnancy. 76 or 6.82% were found to harbour this bacterium. The incidence of contamination was significantly higher among Belgian women than among parturients of Mediterranean origin (p less than 0.001). It was also more frequent in(More)
We studied the polygraphic sleep recordings of 30 infants who eventually died of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and those of 60 matched control infants. All records were extracted from 20,750 sleep studies collected prospectively in 10 sleep laboratories. Of the 30 future SIDS victims, 5 were siblings of SIDS victims and 9 were studied after an(More)
