Differential Actions of Antiparkinson Agents at Multiple Classes of Monoaminergic Receptor. I. A Multivariate Analysis of the Binding Profiles of 14 Drugs at 21 Native and Cloned Human Receptor
Because little comparative information is available concerning receptor profiles of antiparkinson drugs, affinities of 14 agents were determined at diverse receptors implicated in the etiology and/orExpand

Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor γ (PPARγ) as a Molecular Target for the Soy Phytoestrogen Genistein*
The principal soy phytoestrogen genistein has an array of biological actions. It binds to estrogen receptor (ER) α and β and has ER-mediated estrogenic effects. In addition, it has antiestrogenicExpand

New selective ligands of human cloned melatonin MT1 and MT2 receptors
Melatonin has a key role in the circadian rhythm relay to periphery organs. Melatonin exerts its multiple roles mainly through two seven transmembrane domain, G-coupled receptors, namely MT1 or MT2Expand

Molecular tools to study melatonin pathways and actions.
Melatonin, an indoleamine neurohormone that is synthesized mainly in the pineal gland and derived from 5-HT, has many effects on a wide range of physio-pathological functions. Some of these effectsExpand

Melatonin receptors, heterodimerization, signal transduction and binding sites: what's new?
Melatonin is a neurohormone that has been claimed to be involved in a wide range of physiological functions. Nevertheless, for most of its effects, the mechanism of action is not really known. InExpand

Agonist and antagonist actions of yohimbine as compared to fluparoxan at α2‐adrenergic receptors (AR)s, serotonin (5‐HT)1A, 5‐HT1B, 5‐HT1D and dopamine D2 and D3 receptors. Significance for the
Herein, we evaluate the interaction of the α2‐AR antagonist, yohimbine, as compared to fluparoxan, at multiple monoaminergic receptors and examine their roles in the modulation of adrenergic,Expand

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma ) as a molecular target for the soy phytoestrogen genistein.
The principal soy phytoestrogen genistein has an array of biological actions. It binds to estrogen receptor (ER) alpha and beta and has ER-mediated estrogenic effects. In addition, it hasExpand

Role of a pineal cAMP-operated arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase/14-3-3-binding switch in melatonin synthesis
The daily rhythm in melatonin levels is controlled by cAMP through actions on the penultimate enzyme in melatonin synthesis, arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT; serotonin N-acetyltransferase,Expand

NRH:quinone reductase 2: an enzyme of surprises and mysteries.
Quinone reductase 2 has been discovered in 1961 and rediscovered in 1997. Because of its sequence homology with quinone reductase 1, it has been suspected to detoxify quinones. Ten years later,Expand

Identification of the Melatonin-binding SiteMT 3 as the Quinone Reductase 2*
The regulation of the circadian rhythm is relayed from the central nervous system to the periphery by melatonin, a hormone synthesized at night in the pineal gland. Besides two melatonin G-coupledExpand
