XVI. International Union of Pharmacology recommendations for the nomenclature of neuropeptide Y, peptide YY, and pancreatic polypeptide receptors.
Based on structural and evolutionary criteria, neuropeptide Y (NPY)b, peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypetide (PP) are closely related polypeptides ([Larhammar, 1996a][1]). They are composed of 36Expand

Distinct electrophysiological properties of glutamatergic, cholinergic and GABAergic rat septohippocampal neurons: novel implications for hippocampal rhythmicity
The medial septum‐diagonal band complex (MSDB) contains cholinergic and non‐cholinergic neurons known to play key roles in learning and memory processing, and in the generation of hippocampal thetaExpand

hCGRP8-37, a calcitonin gene-related peptide antagonist revealing calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor heterogeneity in brain and periphery.
The C-terminal fragment of human calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), hCGRP8-37, fails to induce any biological activity in a variety of isolated tissues and behavioral assays even though itExpand

Behavioral insensitivity to restraint stress, absent fear suppression of behavior and impaired spatial learning in transgenic rats with hippocampal neuropeptide Y overexpression.
Exogenous neuropeptide Y (NPY) reduces experimental anxiety in a wide range of animal models. The generation of an NPY-transgenic rat has provided a unique model to examine the role of endogenous NPYExpand

Structure-activity profile of calcitonin gene-related peptide in peripheral and brain tissues. Evidence for receptor multiplicity.
The radioligand binding characteristics and in vitro biological activities of human calcitonin gene-related peptide (hCGRP) homologs, analogs and fragments have been tested in a variety ofExpand

Decreased binding of dopamine D3 receptors in limbic subregions after neonatal bilateral lesion of rat hippocampus
Neonatal, bilateral lesion of the ventral hippocampus (VH) in rats recently has been proposed as a model of schizophrenia because these animals show postpubertal hypersensitivity to stress and toExpand

Enhanced Amphetamine Sensitivity and Increased Expression of Dopamine D2 Receptors in Postpubertal Rats after Neonatal Excitotoxic Lesions of the Medial Prefrontal Cortex
Functional and structural abnormalities in the medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) and overactive dopamine (DA) neurotransmission are thought to be the key pathologies in schizophrenia. To understand theExpand

Chronic morphine exposure increases the phosphorylation of MAP kinases and the transcription factor CREB in dorsal root ganglion neurons: an in vitro and in vivo study
Tolerance to opiates reduces their effectiveness in the treatment of severe pain. Although the mechanisms are unclear, overactivity of pro‐nociceptive systems has been proposed to contribute to thisExpand

Comparative Alterations of Nicotinic and Muscarinic Binding Sites in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases
Abstract: We have recently reported on the differential alterations of various cholinergic markers in cortical and subcortical regions in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The main purpose of the presentExpand
