To investigate whether histaminergic neurons influence the activity of cholinergic neurons, the ventral striatum was superfused through a push-pull cannula and the release of endogenous acetylcholine was determined in the superfusate. Local inhibition of histamine synthesis by superfusion with α-fluoromethylhistidine (FMH) gradually decreased the release(More)
To investigate the influence of nitric oxide (NO) on the release of histamine and glutamate, the anterior hypothalamus of anaesthetized rats was superfused through a push-pull cannula either with artificial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or with various drugs dissolved in CSF. Hypothalamic superfusion with the NO-donating compounds linsidomine (200 μmol/l) or(More)
CONTEXT Caesalpinia sappan Linn. (Leguminosae) has been used in folk medicines for the treatment of many diseases. The heartwood of this plant contains various phenolic components with interesting biological applications; however, the chemical and biological potentials of the seed of this plant have not been fully explored. OBJECTIVE This study identified(More)
The ability of glial cells to take up histamine in vitro suggests that these cells may be involved in histamine inactivation. This prompted us to study the possible interactions between neuronal and glial processes which determine the histamine concentration in the synaptic cleft. In vitro experiments showed that the glial metabolic toxin, fluoroacetate(More)
To investigate whether H1 and H2 histamine receptors are implicated in the modulation of acetylcholine release by endogenous histamine, the ventral striatum of the conscious, freely moving rat was superfused by the push–pull superfusion technique with drugs and the release of acetylcholine was determined in the superfusate. Superfusion with the H1 receptor(More)
We have previously shown that the basal acetylcholine release in the ventral striatum is under the enhancing influence of endogenous nitric oxide (NO) and that NO donors cause pronounced increases in the acetylcholine release rate. To investigate the role of cyclic GMP, glutamate, and GABA in the NO-induced acetylcholine release, we superfused the nucleus(More)
In this study, we evaluated the anti-inflammatory activity of the soluble ethyl acetate fraction and chemical components of the stem bark of Passiflora foetida (Passifloraceae). Ten flavonoids (1-10) were isolated by various chromatographic techniques, and their structures were determined based on spectroscopic analyses by using nuclear magnetic resonance(More)
The paper deals with the management and the reduction of conducted common mode EMI noise in power converters. Especially, it is presented how complementary P-N MOSFET structures, used in a specific manner, are able of great and natural common mode current reductions. The advantages obtained by the use of complementary MOSFET topologies are balanced with the(More)
Two new benzofurans, 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-5-(1,3-dihydroxypropyl)-7-methoxybenzofuran (1) and 2-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-5-(3-hydroxymethyletoxy-1-hydroxypropyl)-7-methoxybenzofuran (2), a new triterpene, 3β, 6β, 21β-trihydroxyolean-12-ene (3), and eleven known compounds were isolated from the stem bark of Styrax obassia. The structures of the isolated(More)
