Comparative anatomy of the histaminergic and other aminergic systems in zebrafish (Danio rerio)
The histaminergic system and its relationships to the other aminergic transmitter systems in the brain of the zebrafish were studied by using confocal microscopy and immunohistochemistry on brainExpand

Histamine-containing neurons in the rat hypothalamus.
A specific antiserum against histamine was produced in rabbits, and an immunohistochemical study of histamine-containing cells was carried out in rat brain. The antiserum bound histamine in aExpand

Histamine-immunoreactive nerve fibers in the rat brain
A new immunohistochemical method that utilizes carbodiimide as a tissue fixative was applied to study the distribution of histamine-immunoreactive neuronal fibers and terminals in the rat brain.Expand

Identification of rat H3 receptor isoforms with different brain expression and signaling properties.
We identified the cDNAs of three functional rat H3 receptor isoforms (H3A, H3B, and H3C) and one nonfunctional truncated H3 receptor (H3T). The H3A, H3B, and H3C receptor isoforms vary in the lengthExpand

Prolactin Releasing Peptide Has High Affinity and Efficacy at Neuropeptide FF2 Receptors
Neuropeptide FF (NPFF) and prolactin-releasing peptide (PrRP) are two members of the RFamide peptide family. In this study we investigated whether these RFamide peptides, which have common structuralExpand

Carbodiimide as a tissue fixative in histamine immunohistochemistry and its application in developmental neurobiology.
The object of this study was to develop an immunohistochemical method that could be used to study neuronal histamine, especially in nerve fibers and terminals where most previous methods have notExpand

Gene for pain modulatory neuropeptide NPFF: induction in spinal cord by noxious stimuli.
Neuropeptides FF (NPFF), AF (NPAF), and SF (NPSF) are homologous amidated peptides that were originally identified on the basis of similarity to the molluscan neuropeptide FMRF-amide. They have beenExpand

Expression and intracellular localization of catechol O-methyltransferase in transfected mammalian cells.
The intracellular localization of soluble and membrane-bound isoforms of rat and human catechol O-methyltransferase (COMT) was studied by expressing the recombinant COMT proteins either separately orExpand

Increased brain histamine in an alcohol-preferring rat line and modulation of ethanol consumption by H(3) receptor mechanisms.
SPECIFIC AIMIt has been suggested that the histaminergic system regulates brain reward mechanisms, the molecular basis of which is poorly understood. By applying molecular and behavioral methods to...

Development of the histaminergic neurons and expression of histidine decarboxylase mRNA in the zebrafish brain in the absence of all peripheral histaminergic systems
The histamine‐storing neural system in adult and developing zebrafish (Danio rerio) was studied with immunocytochemical and chromatographical methods. Furthermore, the gene for histidineExpand
