Melatonin protection against in vitro kainic acid-induced oxidative damage in homogenates from different rat brain regions is shown. Brain-disrupted cell homogenates from cerebral cortex, cerebellum, hippocampus, hypothalamus, and corpus striatum were incubated with kainate (11.7 mM) with or without different concentrations of melatonin (0.1-4 mM). The(More)
prepared and the high-temperature electrical and thermal transport properties are investigated systematically. Lattice constants of RFe 4 Sb 12 increase almost linearly with increasing the ionic radii of the fillers, while the lattice expansion in filled structure is weakly influenced by the filler valence charge states. Using simple charge counting, the(More)
Pineal gland N-acetyltransferase (NAT) activity and pineal and serum levels of melatonin declined linearly in albino rats acutely exposed to different intensities of red light (600 nm or higher; low, 140 microW/cm2; moderate, 690 microW/cm2; high, 1200 microW/cm2) during the middle of the night. The high intensity red light was as effective as white light(More)
The effect of pulsed static magnetic fields on the rat pineal melatonin synthesis was studied at different times of the photoperiod. Exposure to magnetic fields during mid- or late dark phase significantly suppressed pineal N-acetyltransferase activity, the rate-limiting enzyme in melatonin synthesis, as well as the melatonin content in the pineal gland.(More)
