The specific binding of [125I]iodomelatonin to duck spleen membrane preparations was studied in detail. These binding sites were stable, saturable, reversible and of high affinity. Scatchard analysis of the binding revealed a equilibrium binding constant (Kd) of 73.1 +/- 5.4 pM and a total number of binding sites (Bmax) of 3.64 +/- 1.38 fmol/mg protein.(More)
The binding and pharmacological characteristics of [125I]iodomelatonin binding sites in human fetal brain membrane preparations were determined. Membrane preparations of the whole brain revealed a equilibrium binding constant (Kd) of 17.5 pmol/l with a total number of binding sites (Bmax) at 0.8 fmol/mg protein. Among the various brain regions studied,(More)
—To improve the aortic pressure and myocardial perfusion pressure during cardiac arrest, this study is de-And then the AEI-CPR hemodynamic effect to the blood circulatory system is performed on the model. A genetic algorithm (GA) that used to find optimum sequence of the EECP is performed on the model when other parameters of external force for AEI-CPR are(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that c-Jun NH2-terminal protein kinase (JNK) plays a crucial role in neuronal apoptosis. Here, we report that indirubin-3'-oxime, a known effective inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) and glycogen synthase kinase 3-beta (GSK-3beta), has a significant inhibitory effect on JNK. Kinase assay showed that(More)
The diurnal variation of [125I]iodomelatonin binding sites in the brain and serum melatonin levels were studied at 4-hour intervals under a 12 h:12 h light:dark cycle in 5-week-old chicks. There was a diurnal rhythm of [125I]iodomelatonin binding capacities in brain membrane preparations with the peak in the light period and the trough in the dark period.(More)
[125I]Iodomelatonin bindings sites in human infant cerebellum were studied by radioligand receptor binding assay and in vitro quantitative autoradiography. The binding sites characterized in membrane preparations revealed saturable, reversible and highly specific binding sites with a Kd value of 21.2 +/- 8.33 pM and a Bmax value of 2.02 +/- 0.52 fmol/mg(More)
The characteristics of melatonin-binding sites labelled by [125I]iodomelatonin in membrane preparations from the tree shrew retina were determined. Specific binding of [125I]iodomelatonin to the membrane preparations of tree shrew retina was rapid, stable, saturable, and reversible. Among the indoles tested only 6-chloromelatonin, melatonin and(More)
