The effect of sodium, potassium, and lithium on δ-opioid receptor ligand binding parameters and coupling with the cognate G proteins was compared in model HEK293 cell line stably expressing PTX-insensitive δ-OR-Gi1α (Cys351-Ile351) fusion protein. Agonist [3H]DADLE binding was decreased in the order Na+ ≫ Li+ > K+ > (+)NMDG. When plotted as a function of(More)
Our data indicate the significant intrinsic efficacy of GABA(B)-receptors in rat brain cortex already at birth (PD1, PD2). Subsequently, baclofen- and SKF97541-stimulated G-protein activity, measured by agonist-stimulated, high-affinity [(35)S]GTPgammaS binding assay, was increased; the highest level of both baclofen and SKF97541-stimulated [(35)S]GTPgammaS(More)
With the aim to understand the onset of expression and developmental profile of plasma membrane (PM) content /density of crucial components of GABA(B)-R signaling cascade, GABA(B)-R1a, GABA(B)-R1b, GABA(B)-R2, G(i)1/G(i)2alpha, G(i)3alpha, G(o)alpha, G(z)alpha and Gbeta subunit proteins were determined by quantitative immunoblotting and compared in PM(More)
UNLABELLED Proteomic analysis was performed in post-nuclear supernatant fraction (PNS) prepared from forebrain cortex of rats exposed to increasing doses of morphine (10-50mg/kg) for 10days and sacrificed 24h (group +M10) or 20days (group +M10/-M20) after the last dose of morphine. PNS fraction was resolved by 2D-ELFO and stained by CBB. Analysis of the(More)
PRINCIPAL FINDINGS HEK293 cells stably expressing PTX-insensitive δ-opioid receptor-Gi1α (C351I) fusion protein were homogenized, treated with low concentrations of non-ionic detergent Brij-58 at 0°C and fractionated by flotation in sucrose density gradient. In optimum range of detergent concentrations (0.025-0.05% w/v), Brij-58-treated, low-density(More)
Proteomic analysis was performed in post-nuclear supernatant (PNS) and Percoll-purified membranes (PM) prepared from fore brain cortex of rats exposed to increasing doses of morphine (10–50 mg/kg) for 10 days. In PNS, the 10 up (↑)- or down (↓)-regulated proteins exhibiting the largest morphine-induced change were selected, excised manually from the gel and(More)
The natural flavonoid quercetin is known to activate the transcription factor Nrf2, which regulates the expression of cytoprotective enzymes such as heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1). In this study, a novel semisynthetic flavonoid 7-O-galloylquercetin (or quercetin-7-gallate, 3) was prepared by direct galloylation of(More)
Large number of extracellular signals is received by plasma membrane receptors which, upon activation, transduce information into the target cell interior via trimeric G-proteins (GPCRs) and induce activation or inhibition of adenylyl cyclase enzyme activity (AC). Receptors for opioid drugs such as morphine (micro-OR, delta-OR and kappa-OR) belong to(More)
