Studies in invertebrates have led to the identification of a number of genes that regulate lifespan, some of which encode components of the insulin or insulin-like signalling pathways. Examples include the related tyrosine kinase receptors InR (Drosophila melanogaster) and DAF-2 (Caenorhabditis elegans) that are homologues of the mammalian insulin-like(More)
The effects of the selective CCK-B agonists, BC 264 and BC 197, and the nonselective CCK agonist BDNL were investigated in the elevated plus-maze in rats. BDNL and BC 197 induced anxiogeniclike effects, in contrast to BC 264, which had no effect. The behavioral responses induced by BDNL were not significantly blocked by L-365,260, but were suppressed by(More)
