Rimcazole (BW 234U) is a potential antipsychotic agent which in open-clinical trials appears to be effective in acute schizophrenic patients. In the present study, rimcazole was found to block the specific binding of [3H]-(+)-SKF 10,047 to sigma sites in rat and guinea pig brain (IC50 = 5.0 X 10(-7) M). The compound was 100 times weaker as a blocker of(More)
Eucalyptol, also known as 1,8-cineol, is a monoterpene and has been shown to exert anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. It is traditionally used to treat respiratory disorders due to its secretolytic properties. In the present study, we evaluated the effect of 1,8-cineol on pulmonary inflammation in a mouse model of acute lung injury. We found that(More)
Biochemical studies have shown that the ability of erythrosine to inhibit dopamine uptake into brain synaptosomal preparations is dependent on the concentration of tissue present in the assay mixture. Thus, the finding that erythrosine inhibits dopamine uptake (which, if true, would provide a plausible explanation of the Feingold hypothesis of childhood(More)
The ATP-Mg++-dependent uptake of [3H]dopamine and l-[3H]norepinephrine into purified synaptic vesicles of whole rat brain, rat striatum and rat hypothalamus was inhibited 10-fold more effectively by S-(+)-amphetamine as compared to its corresponding (R-(-)-enantiomer. In contrast, S-(+)-deoxypipradrol and its R-(-)-enantiomer were approximately equipotent(More)
The chlorophyll-containing lamellar structures isolated from Anabaena variabilis have the ability to oxidize reduced mammalian cytochrome c in the dark. This activity is oxygen dependent and heat labile. As with other cytochrome oxidase preparations, activity is stimulated by detergents and is sensitive to the ionic strength of the assay solution. The(More)
Epithelial cells play an important role in physiological and pathophysiological situations, with organ-, tissue-, type-, and function-specific patterns. Proteome analysis has been used to study epithelial-origin diseases and identify novel prognostic, diagnostic, and therapeutic markers. The present review compares the variation of sample preparation for(More)
Analogues of 2-amino-N-(4-(4-(1,2-benzisothiazol-3-yl)-l-piperazinyl) -butyl)benzamide hydrochloride (1192U90) were prepared and evaluated in receptor binding assays for the dopamine D2, serotonin 5-HT1a, and serotonin 5-HT2 receptors. Eight compounds have been synthesized in which the amide group of 1192U90 has been replaced with a variety of functional(More)
11192U90 was submitted to receptor binding and monoamine uptake assays. It bound potently at serotonin 5-HT2, dopaminergic D2, serotonin 5-HT1A, and adrenergic alpha 1 and alpha 2 receptors. It also bound to dopaminergic D1, serotonin 5-HT3, serotonin 5-HT4, and sigma sites, albeit with lower affinity. It was essentially inactive at 22 other sites,(More)
