To assess the involvement of the serotonin receptor subtype 5-HT1B as terminal autoreceptor regulating 5-HT release in mice, we compared basal values and potassium-evoked changes of extracellular 5-HT levels obtained by in vivo microdialysis in two serotoninergic terminal projection areas of conscious wild-type mice with those measured in homozygous mutant(More)
Estrogen action is mediated by the two receptor isoforms: estrogen receptor alpha and beta. Both receptors are expressed in human prostate tissue and have different action profiles. ERalpha is positively correlated with the malignancy of prostate cancer, while ERbeta may protect against abnormal prostate cell growth. 17β-Estradiol (E2), at least in part,(More)
The importance of intracellular calcium ([Ca(2+)]i) regulation in the glomerular filtration barrier (GFB) has recently been highlighted by mutations in the cation channel TRPC6, resulting in a renal-specific phenotype. We examined the effects of FFA, a tool that can activate TRPC6, on [Ca(2+)]i in human conditionally immortalised glomerular endothelial(More)
