We investigated the responses of salivary secretion and the susceptibility of the muscarinic receptors in the salivary glands of the streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats (STZ rats). Giving water ad libitum, the amount of whole saliva with no stimulation was similar in the STZ and the control rats. Pilocarpine increased salivary secretion in both(More)
This study investigated the influence of diazepam on the binding characteristics of adrenoceptor, muscarinic and benzodiazepine receptors in rat parotid gland membrane using a radioligand binding assay. At a concentration of >10(-6)M, diazepam competed with [(3)H]dihydroalprenolol for β-adrenoceptor, but not [(3)H]prazosin for α-adrenoceptor or(More)
