The regional distribution and frequency of pancreatic endocrine cells in the red-bellied frog, Bombina orientalis, were studied by the immunohistochemical peroxidase anti-peroxidase (PAP) method using five types of specific mammalian antisera to insulin, glucagon, somatostatin, bovine pancreatic polypeptide (PP) and secretin. The frequency was calculated as(More)
We examined the effects of warming on the contractile responses to full and partial α-adrenoceptor agonists in rat aorta. The contractions elicited by norepinephrine and methoxamine were not affected during warming (40°C, 42°C), whereas those induced by clonidine and St 587 were significantly enhanced. KCl-induced contractions of rat aorta were not affected(More)
Vagal reflex bradycardia was induced in anaesthetized cats with high level spinal axotomy by electrical stimulation of either the carotid sinus nerves or a depressor nerve. In both preparations reflex bradycardia increased with the rate of stimulation. Injection of 1 μg/kg clonidine into a lateral cerebral ventricle augmented reflex bradycardia in response(More)
