Monoaminergic neurotransmitters regulate different components of sexual behaviors, but how the different monoaminergic cell groups selectively regulate these behaviors is not well understood. We examined the potential contribution of these different cell groups in the control of different aspects of sexual behaviors in male and female quail. We used(More)
1. Sheep hearts have been used to study the effects of beta-adrenoceptor (beta-AR) agonists in order to better understand the effects of common asthma treatment drugs on heart rate, cardiac power output and cardiac pathology. Hearts have been examined both in vivo and in vitro. 2. In whole anaesthetized sheep, isoprenaline, fenoterol and salbutamol induced(More)
The isolation and identification of a material present in the plasma of hypertensive dogs and hypertensive human patients has been under study since 1972. The earliest experiments in relation to this work, noted that plasma from hypertensive dogs cause a hyperresponse to norepinephrine when both were administered by way of the vein. Employing a rat assay(More)
OBJECTIVES Adipose tissue is able to secrete a variety of active mediators into the circulation. One of these is Interleukin 6 (IL6). IL6 may play a causal role in the development of atherosclerosis. It has therefore been suggested that IL6 may form part of the link between obesity and vascular disease. The aim of this study was to quantify the relative IL6(More)
