Mineralocorticoid receptors (MRs) expressed in limbic neurons, notably of hippocampus, retain both aldosterone and corticosterone. Basal concentrations of corticosterone already substantially occupy the limbic MR type, suggesting that in hippocampal neurons, MR activity rather than ligand bioavailability is rate limiting. The periventricular region(More)
The influence of synthesizing temperature of manganese dioxide (MnO(2)) powders on their electrochemical reactivity in 1 M KOH was investigated. These powders were prepared chemically by the hydrothermal method by oxidation of Mn(2+) by ammonium peroxodisulphate. The observations by scanning electronic microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray analyses, and(More)
As suggested by its American brand name (Sensipar), the calcimimetic cinacalcet sensitizes the parathyroid cells to the extracellular calcium signal, suppressing parathyroid hormone (PTH) release and synthesis and preventing parathyroid cell proliferation. This primary PTH suppression decreases the release of calcium and phosphate from bone without(More)
