A radioiodinated ligand, [125I]SB-236636 [(S)-(-)3-[4-[2-[N-(2-benzoxazolyl)-N-methylamino]ethoxy]3-[125I]i odo phenyl]2-ethoxy propanoic acid], which is specific for the gamma isoform of the peroxisomal proliferator activated receptor (PPARgamma), was developed. [125I]SB-236636 binds with high affinity to full-length human recombinant PPARgamma1 and to a(More)
SB-258585 (4-Iodo-N-[4-methoxy-3-(4-methyl-piperazin-1-yl)-phenyl]-benzen esulphonamide) is a high affinity ligand at 5-HT(6) receptors. It displays over 100 fold selectivity for the 5-HT(6) receptor over all other 5-HT receptors tested so far. SB-258585 has been radiolabelled, to high specific activity, for its characterization as a 5-HT(6) receptor(More)
Catechols may interfere in melanogenesis by causing increased levels of toxic quinones. Several catechols and known inhibitors of the enzyme catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) were therefore tested for their toxicity towards a pigmented melanoma cell line, UCLA-SO-(M14). The inhibition of thymidine incorporation as a result of exposure to the compounds was(More)
