In the present study we use the in vivo microdialysis sampling technique to register extracellular levels of neurotransmitters in the striatum of trained and untrained rats. We further evaluate the influence of 1 h of exercise on the striatal release of dopamine (DA), noradrenaline (NA), glutamate (GLU) and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in trained and(More)
Appetite suppressants may be one strategy in the fight against obesity. This study evaluated whether Korean pine nut free fatty acids (FFA) and triglycerides (TG) work as an appetite suppressant. Korean pine nut FFA were evaluated in STC-1 cell culture for their ability to increase cholecystokinin (CCK-8) secretion vs. several other dietary fatty acids from(More)
T-cell receptors bind antigens only when the antigens are exposed on the cell surface. This can be studied best in the interaction of cytolytic T lymphocytes (CTL) with target cells because the recognition and binding event can be separated from the lytic phase. Studies with CTL clones specific for HLA-A2 and HLA-B7 demonstrated that conjugates of CTL's and(More)
Certain free fatty acids have been shown to have potent effects on food intake and self-reported changes in appetite; effects associated with increases in the release of endogenous cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1). In the current study, the effects of a Korean pine nut oil product, PinnoThin, at doses 2 g, 4 g and 6 g triglyceride(More)
Doxorubicin accumulation defects in multidrug resistant tumour cells are generally small in comparison to the resistance factors. Therefore additional mechanisms must be operative. In this paper we show by a quantitative approach that doxorubicin resistance in several P-glycoprotein-positive non-small cell lung cancer and breast cancer multidrug resistant(More)
The “cholesterol hypothesis” is the leading theory to explain the cause of atherosclerosis. The “cholesterol hypothesis” assumes that plasma (LDL) cholesterol is an important causal factor for atherosclerosis. However, data of at least seven placebo controlled randomized prospective trials with various cholesterol lowering drugs show that plasma cholesterol(More)
We have investigated a series of 7-azaindoles as potential partial agonists of the alpha4beta2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR). Three series of 7-azaindole derivatives have been synthesized and evaluated for rat brain neuronal nicotinic receptor affinity and functional activity. Compound (+)-51 exhibited the most potent nAChR binding (Ki = 10 nM).(More)
