1. In vitro addition of dopamine (DA) or of DA-1 receptor agonists increases 3'- 5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels through the stimulation of DA-1 receptors. 2. Although receptor binding studies suggest the existence of DA-2 receptors in the renal cortex, the presence of DA receptors negatively coupled to cAMP generation (DA-2 effect) has not(More)
The influence of ageing on sulphide-silver positive zinc stores was assessed in the stratum radiatum of the CA1-CA3 sub fields of the rat hippocampus and in the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus using a silver amplification histochemical technique associated with microdensitometry. The volume of areas examined for microdensitometry was evaluated as well(More)
1. Molecular biology studies have documented the presence of peripheral dopamine D4 receptors. This site has not been characterized yet with classical radioligand binding assay techniques because of the lack of selective radioligands. 2. The atypical neuroleptic clozapine labelled with tritium ([3H]-clozapine) has been proposed and sold as a radioligand for(More)
The influence of aging on glutathione levels and distribution in the heart was studied in male Sprague-Dawley rats of 3 (young), 12 (adult) and 24 (old) months of age using biochemical and histofluorescence techniques, respectively. Biochemical assays of reduced glutathione (GSH) in the right and left ventricles and in the septum showed a significant(More)
