The pharmacology of the isolated foregut of the locust schistocerca gregaria—I. the effect of a range of putative neurotransmitters
TLDR
5-HT (10−8M-5 × 10−6M), acting at ketanserin-sensitive receptors, was the most powerful tissue relaxant tested, and ACh induced relaxation, mimicked by nicotine and antagonised by d-tubocurarine, was seen only in the presence of the anti-cholinesterase neostigmine.
Abscisic acid binding to subcellular fractions from leaves of Vicia faba
A centrifugation binding assay has been used to demonstrate the binding of [3H] (±) abscisic acid to membrane-rich fractions prepared from leaves of Vicia faba L. Kinetic analysis of this binding
The isolation of an acetylcholine- and decamethonium-binding protein from housefly heads.
TLDR
Experiments are described showing that a proteolipid fraction with similar properties to those of the 'acetylcholine-receptor proteolIPids' described by De Robertis and his co-workers can be isolated from insect nervous tissue.
Tyramine antagonizes proctolin-induced contraction of the isolated foregut of the locust Schistocerca gregaria by an interaction with octopamine2 receptors.
TLDR
It is concluded that tyramine antagonises proctolin-induced contraction of the foregut by activating an adenylate cyclase-linked OA2 receptor.
Uptake of abscisic acid by isolated mesophyll protoplasts from Vicia Faba
TLDR
Initial uptake was not a metabolically dependent or carrier mediated process but diffusive, and had a pH optimum of 4–5.5.
The identification of the site of action of dicyclohexylcarbodi-imide as a proteolipid in mitochondrialmembranes.
TLDR
It is concluded that dicyclohexylcarbodi-imide inhibits mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation by reacting covalently with a group on this chloroform–methanol-soluble protein.
The isolation of dicyclohexylcarbodi-imide-binding proteins from mitochondrial membranes.
DCCD* is a potent inhibitor of oxidative phosphorylation. It has been suggested that its site of action may be an intermediate of ATP synthesis with which it forms a covalent bond (Beechey, Roberton,
SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION AND PROPERTIES OF A CHOLINERGIC RECEPTOR ISOLATED FROM HOUSEFLY HEADS
—Protein(s) possessing the ligand‐binding properties expected of the insect cholinergic receptor were demonstrated in both aqueous and chloroform‐methanol extracts of an 80,000 g supernatant obtained
The pharmacology of the isolated foregut of the locust Schistocerca gregaria—II. characterization of a 5-HT2-like receptor
TLDR
It is concluded that 5- HT relaxes the locust foregut by interacting with 5-HT2-like receptors.
FMRFamide and related peptides modulate the actions of 5-hydroxytryptamine and proctolin on the foregut of the locust, Schistocerca gregaria.
