Neuropeptide Y (NPY) plays a trophic role in the nervous and vascular systems and in cardiac hypertrophy. However, there is no report concerning the expression of NPY and its receptors in the heart during postnatal development. In the current study, immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis was used to label NPY, and Y1R, Y2R, and Y5R receptors in the(More)
We studied the effect of neuropeptide Y in concentrations of 10–10-10–6 M on myocardial contractility of rats at the age of 7, 21, and 100 days. Studying the isometric contraction of myocardial strips showed that neuropeptide Y decreases the force of myocardial contraction in 7-day-old rat pups. Exogenous neuropeptide Y produced a biphasic effect in(More)
Selective agonist (Leu(31)Pro(34)NPY) and blocker (BIBP-3226) of NPY1 receptors were used to determine the type of NPY receptors involved in myocardial contraction. Experiments with isometric contraction of myocardial strips from mature rats showed that the agonist produced the most potent effect in a concentration of 10—7 M. In this concentration,(More)
Experiments with R2Y receptor blockers allowed identification of R2Y subtypes mediating the inhibitory effects of uridine triphosphate on myocardial contractility. In 100-day-old animals, the myocardial inotropic response to the administration of uridine triphosphate was mediated by R2Y2 receptors. R2Y4 receptors took part in the realization of negative(More)
β-Adrenergic receptor agonist isoproterenol and purinergic receptor agonist 2-methylthio-ATP have a positive effect on the myocardial contractile force and show different efficiencies depending on the age of animals. The maximum inotropic effect of agonists on the ventricular myocardial contractility was observed in 21-day-old rat pups. The study of a(More)
The concept of equivalence classes and factor sets known from set theory is applied to the theory and practice of botanical studies. The properties of taxonomic, typological, and gradient factor sets and their connection with a comparative floristic and phytoindicative analysis are considered. The enlarged groups of regimes are proposed for ten ecological(More)
