The present study analyses the presence of beta-adrenoceptors in the main telencephalic song nuclei of the goldfinch and parakeet, species belonging to the two most important groups of birds that reproduce learned songs: oscine songbirds and parrots, respectively. Brains of both species sectioned at appropriate levels were used to perform autoradiographic(More)
In this study we determined the norepinephrine (NE), epinephrine and methoxy-hydroxy-phenyl-glycol (MHPG) levels in dissected chick telencephalon, diencephalon/mesencephalon and cerebellum in a number of stages from the late embryonic period (E16, E17, E18 and E19) and post-hatching period (P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P15 and P30) using HPLC coupled with a(More)
This study used [3H]CGP 12177 as a radioligand to determine the beta1 and beta2-adrenoceptor changes from the pre-hatching E17 stage, where the beta2 subtype is first detected, to the post-hatching P30 stage. While beta1-adrenoceptors were found to be present from E18 and were limited to cerebellum and hyperstriatum in all stages studied,(More)
Background: Delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF), indicated for the treatment of patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), is a disease-modifying therapy with potential immunomodulatory and neuropro-tective effects. In clinical trials, DMF was associated with reduced white blood cell and absolute lymphocyte counts. Current US prescribing(More)
An autoradiographic method for labelling beta(1)- and beta(2)-adrenoceptors using [3H]CGP 12177 as a radioligand is described as well as the procedure for an autoradiographic saturation kinetic study. The method afforded higher quality autoradiographs as well as an improvement in the tissue preservation when assayed in birds and chick embryos. The results(More)
This report describes the distribution of beta-adrenergic receptors in the telencephalic visual nuclei of chick, duck, pigeon, parakeet and goldfinch using [3H]CGP 12177 (4-3-t-butylamino-2-hydroxypropoxy-[5,7(3)H] benzimidazol-2-one) as a radioligand. The results reveal a predominance of the beta2-adrenoceptor subtype in all the species studied and that(More)
