Wistar rats show a circadian variation in their response to stress. Pinealectomy exacerbates stress-induced gastric ulceration in rats. This effect is counteracted by melatonin administration.
The neuroprotective effect of melatonin against the quinolinic acid-induced degeneration of rat hippocampal neurons was investigated. Three groups of rats were given intrahippocampal injections of either; saline, quinolinic acid or i.p. injections of melatonin prior to and after being injected with quinolinic acid. On the fifth day after the… (More)
Prior melatonin administration (1,5 and 10 mg/kg b. wt) causes a significant reduction in gastric ulceration induced in male rats by restraint immobilization in the presence of low temperatures.
Prior melatonin administration (1 and 10 mg/kg b.wt) causes a significant reduction in apomorphine (1 mg/kg b.wt) induced rotational behaviour in both 6-hydroxydopamine and quinolinic acid lesioned rats.
The pineal gland of the male rat does not appear to rely on prior conversion of testosterone to estradiol for the stimulant effect of testosterone on pineal melatonin and 5-methoxytryptophol synthesis.
Numerical design optimization is a powerful tool that can be used by engineers during any stage of the design process. There are many different applications for structural optimization. A specific application that will be discussed in the following paper is experimental data matching. Data obtained through tests on a physical structure will be matched with… (More)
A new antidepressive drug, S1694, produces increased locomotor activity (LA) in mice, but less so than d-amphetamine. This effect is decreased by pimozide, phenoxybenzamine, as well as by pretreatment of the animals with reserpine or alpha-methyl-p-tyrosine methyl ester (H44/68). S1694 inhibits active dopamine (DA) uptake into rat striatal synaptosomes, but… (More)
