As part of our ongoing research program aimed at the identification of highly potent, selective, and systemically active agonists for group II metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors, we have prepared novel heterobicyclic amino acids (-)-2-oxa-4-aminobicyclo[3.1. 0]hexane-4,6-dicarboxylate (LY379268, (-)-9) and(More)
1. The auditory cortex in the superior temporal region of the alert rhesus monkey was explored for neuronal responses to pure and harmonic complex tones and noise. The monkeys had been previously trained to recognize the similarity between harmonic complex tones with and without fundamentals. Because this suggested that they could preceive the pitch of the(More)
Comparison of the pharmacological effects of a range of sulphur-containing amino acids on human mGluR1alpha and mGluR5a has been undertaken. cDNAs of each mGluR were transfected into a Syrian hamster tumour cell line AV12-664 that was previously transfected with the rat glutamate-aspartate transporter protein (GLAST). The L-isomers of cysteine sulphinic(More)
A series of novel group I metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGlu) antagonists have been designed on the basis of the 4-carboxyphenylglycine pharmacophore. The compounds are either mGlu1 receptor selective or equipotent for both mGlu1 and mGlu5 receptors and have IC(50) values ranging from 1 to 30 microM determined by phosphoinositide hydrolysis (PI) assay in(More)
Five separate monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) to human thyroid peroxidase (hTPO) were raised by immunising Balb/c mice with hTPO purified from detergent solubilised thyroid microsomes by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The epitope specificities of these MoAbs were determined by assessing their ability to bind to purified recombinant fusion(More)
In preparation for neurophysiological experiments aimed at mechanisms of pitch perception, four rhesus monkeys were trained to press a button when the fundamental frequencies (missing or present) of two complex tones in a tone pair matched. Both tones were based on a five-component harmonic series. Zero to three of the lowest components could be missing in(More)
