1. The antagonistic actions of parafluorohexahydrosiladiphenidol (pFHHSiD) at muscarinic receptors has been studied in cardiac muscle, smooth muscle and cell culture preparations. In this paper, the classification scheme of Doods et al. (1987) is employed. This scheme is based upon differential affinities of muscarinic antagonists. pFHHSiD exhibited high(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated species-specific differences in 5-hydroxytryptamine3 (5-HT3) receptors, but unequivocal evidence of 5-HT3 receptor subtypes, within a species, has not yet been obtained. The purpose of the current study was to test for heterogeneity in 5-HT3 receptors in murine tissues. 5-HT3 receptors in membranes derived from brain(More)
This study was designed to compare corticosteroids with ketorolac, a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug on corneal wound healing in rabbits. The present studies indicate that 0.5% ketorolac does not significantly impair wound healing as determined by corneal tensile strength, whereas 0.1% solution of dexamethasane phosphate resulted in a significant(More)
1. Muscarinic receptors present in the human astrocytoma cell line 1321 N1 were characterized in radioligand binding studies and in functional studies of carbachol-stimulated phosphatidylinositol (PI) turnover. 2. In radioligand binding studies the muscarinic receptor in intact cells could be labelled using [3H]-N-methylscopolamine ([3H]-NMS) but not by(More)
1. The action of hexamethonium has been studied at a range of muscarinic receptors in vitro by use of both functional and radioligand binding studies. 2. In functional studies, hexamethonium exhibited little or no significant (P less than 0.05) antagonism of contractile responses to carbachol at muscarinic receptors in the guinea-pig ileum, oesophageal(More)
The anatomical structure of the olfactory organs, nerve tracts and brain was described in Silurus glanis. The changes connected with aging were considered. The olfactory lamellae are thin and tightly set in a rosette. In the 1 year old individuals there are 48...51 lamellae in a single rosette. This number increases gradually with age and in the 9...10 year(More)
