1. There is considerable interest in elucidating potential endogenously derived agonists of the vanilloid receptor and the role of anandamide in this regard has received considerable attention. In the present study, we have used an electrophysiological technique to investigate the mechanism of activation of vanilloid receptors in an isolated vagal(More)
The endogenous cannabinoid agonist, anandamide produced a modest contractile response in guinea-pig isolated bronchus compared with the vanilloid receptor agonist capsaicin. The contractile response to both anandamide and capsaicin was inhibited by the vanilloid receptor antagonist, capsazepine. Furthermore, the NK(2)-selective antagonist, SR48968 but not(More)
We examined otolith marks on chum salmon caught in the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea during the spring and summer of 2006 and 2007. Otolith marks were detected in 190 of 8,295 immature and maturing fish. Of these marked salmon, 13 fish were found in the North Pacific Ocean and 177 fish were found in the Bering Sea. Approximately 90% of the marked(More)
