Acid-sensing ion channels (ASIC) are ligand-gated cation channels that are highly expressed in peripheral sensory and central neurons. ASIC are transiently activated by decreases in extracellular pH and are thought to play important roles in sensory perception, neuronal transmission, and excitability, and in the pathology of neurological conditions, such as(More)
Transient proton-activated currents induced by rapid shifts of the extracellular pH from 7.4 to < or =6.8 were recorded in different neurons freshly isolated from rat brain (hypoglossal motoneurons, cerebellar Purkinje cells, striatal giant cholinergic interneurons, hippocampal interneurons, CA1 pyramidal neurons and cortical pyramidal neurons) using(More)
This study examined the blocking action of the selective channel blocker of calcium-permeable (CP) AMPA receptors, N1-(1-phenylcyclohexyl)pentane-1,5-diaminium bromide (IEM-1925), on excitatory postsynaptic currents in rat neostriatal and cortical neurons and in fly neuromuscular junctions. In both preparations, the blocking of CP-AMPA receptor currents(More)
In the present work, we investigated the effects of p53 inhibition by pifithrin-alpha (PFT) in vitro and in vivo on functioning vasopressinergic magnocellular neurons of rat hypothalamus. In vivo treatments with PFT were done by intrahypothalamic microinjections or by intraperitoneal injections. In in vitro experiments hypothalamic slices containing(More)
Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) are ligand-gated cation channels that are highly expressed in nervous system. Little is known about the regulation of these channels. Therefore, we tested whether muscarinic M1 receptors can modulate ASICs. The muscarinic agonist oxotremorine methiodide applied to the bath solution strongly inhibited the whole-cell current(More)
The inhibitory action of non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs was investigated on acid-sensing ionic channels (ASIC) in isolated hippocampal interneurons and on recombinant ASICs expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells. Diclofenac and ibuprofen inhibited proton-induced currents in hippocampal interneurons (IC(50) were 622 +/- 34 muM and 3.42 +/- 0.50(More)
TRPV1 (vanilloid) receptors are activated by different types of stimuli including capsaicin, acidification and heat. Various ligands demonstrate stimulus-dependent action on TRPV1. In the present work we studied the action of polypeptides isolated from sea anemone Heteractis crispa (APHC1, APHC2 and APHC3) on rat TRPV1 receptors stably expressed in CHO(More)
The channels of four types of ionotropic glutamate receptor (NMDA receptors and Ca-permeable AMPA receptors of rat brain neurons, and cation-selective receptors from mollusk neurons and insect postsynaptic muscle membranes) and two subtypes of nicotinic cholinoreceptor (from frog neuromuscular junctions and cat sympathetic ganglia) were studied. The(More)
The effects of divalent cations on Ca2+-impermeable containing (GluR2 subunit) MPA receptors of hippocampal pyramidal neurones isolated from rat brain was studied using patch-clamping. Ca2+, Mg2+, Mn2+, Co2+, Ni2+ and Zn2+ inhibited currents induced by kainate and glutamate. Inhibition was fast, reversible and voltage independent. The rank order of(More)
