Voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) within sensory neurones are believed to perform an important role in neuropathic pain. In the present study we examine the changes in VGCC mRNA which occur following streptozocin- (STZ) induced diabetic neuropathy using in situ hybridization. STZ caused a significant increase in alpha(2)delta(1), alpha(2)delta(2), and(More)
1. Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were made from visually identified hippocampal interneurones in slices of rat brain tissue in vitro. Bath application of the bombesin-like neuropeptides gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) or neuromedin B (NMB) produced a large membrane depolarization that was blocked by pre-incubation with the subtype 2 bombesin (BB2)(More)
Deciduous oak coppices (Quercus pyrenaica Willd.) of the “Sierra de Gata” mountains (central western Spain) are located on acid rocks and subjected to annual rainfall higher than 700 mm year−1. Accordingly, the soils are acidic (soil pH is often below 5.0) and feature the presence of Mn2+ and Al3+ in the exchangeable complex. The aim of the present study(More)
