There has been increasing experimental evidence to suggest that insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) may be one of the essential regulators in the reproductive system of the rat. IGF-I is synthesized in the hypothalamus and IGF-I immunoreactivity increases during puberty. Consequently we hypothesized that centrally located IGF-I might contribute to the(More)
There is extensive evidence that serotonin (5-HT) is implicated in the neuroendocrine control regulating the secretion of several anterior pituitary hormones. It has also been reported that the posterior pituitary is necessary for prolactin (PRL) response to 5-HT as well as to suckling, in which 5-HT implication has been demonstrated. As we have previously(More)
We have previously reported that pituitary vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) mediates through autoparacrine mechanisms insulin-like growth factor-I and TRH-stimulated PRL release. In the present study, we have investigated whether VIP might also be implicated in the PRL increase that follows dopamine (DA) withdrawal. The experiments were carried out in(More)
Sticholysins I and II (St I/II) are cytolysins purified from the sea anemone Stichodactyla helianthus. In this study, we show their pharmacological action on guinea-pig and snail models in native and pH-denatured conditions in order to correlate the pharmacological findings with the pore-forming activity of both isoforms. In guinea-pig erythrocytes (N=3),(More)
In this paper, a comparison between the Field-Oriented Control (FOC) scheme and the Generalized Proportional Integral (GPI) controller for a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is presented. The GPI controller scheme consists in two stages, the first one is a speed control loop which gives the reference control signals, the second stage is a current(More)
