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)
BACKGROUND Activation of adenylyl cyclase (AC) by prolonged exposure of mammalian organism to morphine was demonstrated in previous studies of mechanism of action of this drug. However, expression level of individual AC isoforms was not analyzed in crucial cell structure, plasma membrane (PM). METHODS Rats were adapted to morphine for 10 days and(More)
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)
Biophysical studies of fluorescence anisotropy of DPH and Laurdan generalized polarization were performed in plasma membranes (PM) isolated from control and cholesterol-depleted HEK293 cells stably expressing pertussis toxin (PTX)-insensitive DOR-Gi1α (Cys351-Ile351) fusion protein. PM isolated from control, PTX-untreated, cells were compared with PM(More)
UNLABELLED Here we investigated the effect of disruption of plasma membrane integrity by cholesterol depletion on thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor (TRH-R) surface mobility in HEK293 cells stably expressing TRH-R-eGFP fusion protein (VTGP cells). Detailed analysis by fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) in bleached spots of different sizes(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)
Quercetin 3'-O-sulfate is one of the main metabolites of the natural flavonoid quercetin in humans. This study was designed to prepare quercetin 3'-O-sulfate (1), isoquercitrin 4'-O-sulfate (2) and taxifolin 4'-O-sulfate (3) by the sulfation of quercetin, isoquercitrin (quercetin 3-O-glucoside) and taxifolin (2,3-dihydroquercetin) using the arylsulfate(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)
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)
BACKGROUND Isoquercitrin (quercetin-3-O-β-d-glucopyranoside) is a flavonoid that exhibited antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities in a number of in vitro and in vivo studies. Experimental evidence from rodent models of inflammatory bowel disease is, however, lacking. This study was designed to examine whether isoquercitrin effectively and(More)
