GAPDH as a housekeeping gene: analysis of GAPDH mRNA expression in a panel of 72 human tissues.
Quantitative gene expression data are often normalized to the expression levels of control or so-called "housekeeping" genes. An inherent assumption in the use of housekeeping genes is thatExpand

A novel inhibitory prostanoid receptor in piglet saphenous vein.
A range of prostanoid agonists were tested for activity on isolated ring preparations of piglet saphenous vein. The selective TxA2-mimetic (TP-receptor agonist), U-46619, contracted the preparationExpand

COMPARISON OF THE ACTIONS OF U‐46619, A PROSTAGLANDIN H2‐ANALOGUE, WITH THOSE OF PROSTAGLANDIN H2 AND THROMBOXANE A2 ON SOME ISOLATED SMOOTH MUSCLE PREPARATIONS
1 The actions of the prostaglandin H2 (PGH2) analogue, U‐46619, have been compared with those of PGH2 and thromboxane A2 (TxA2) on a range of isolated smooth muscle preparations in a superfusionExpand

EP4 prostanoid receptor‐mediated vasodilatation of human middle cerebral arteries
Dilatation of the cerebral vasculature is recognised to be involved in the pathophysiology of migraine. Furthermore, elevated levels of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) occur in the blood, plasma and salivaExpand

Characterization of dilator prostanoid receptors in the fetal rabbit ductus arteriosus.
The purpose of this study was to determine which receptors mediate the dilator effects of prostaglandins (PGs) on the ductus arteriosus of the fetal rabbit. Isolated rings of the vessel from fetalExpand
