In 1975, Hamberg et al. reported evidence for the existence of an unstable platelet-aggregating factor which they named thromboxane A2 (TXA2) and for which they proposed a novel bicyclic oxetane structure (1, below) based on the short half-life of the factor (t1/2 (37 degrees C) = 32 s at pH 7.4) and the isolation of degradation products related to(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the possibility that arachidonic acid metabolites mediate D-2 dopamine (DA) receptor inhibition of striatal DA release. The phospholipase A2 inhibitor p-bromophenacyl bromide (BPB; 10 microM) increased electrically evoked overflow of endogenous DA from rat striatal slices and appeared to partially block the(More)
The possible involvement of arachidonic acid metabolites as mediators of the modulation of neurotransmitter release by adenosine, acetylcholine, and GABA was examined in brain slices of rat hippocampus and striatum. The synaptic modulatory effects of these 3 agents on excitatory transmission in the CA1 region of hippocampus were completely unaffected by a(More)
