We evaluated the potential participation of endogenous brain somatostatin-14 (SOM) in central cardiovascular regulation, using adult male Sprague-Dawley rats anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium (40 mg/kg, i.p.). Intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) application of SOM (2 or 4 nmol) promoted a significant elevation in baroreceptor reflex (BRR) response,(More)
BACKGROUND In adults, low circulating interleukin 10 (IL10) has been associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. However, studies investigating IL10 in overweight and obese children have yielded conflicting results. The aim of this study was to investigate factors associated with serum IL10 concentration in young Chinese adolescents. METHODS Young(More)
We evaluated the transmembrane signaling mechanism that may underlie the facilitatory action of somatostatin (SOM) on baroreceptor reflex (BRR), using adult, male, Sprague-Dawley rats anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium (40 mg/kg, i.p.). Intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) application of SOM (2 nmol) promoted a significant elevation in BRR response, induced(More)
1. The incorporation of 32Pi into 4 phospholipids of rat cortical synaptosomes was altered in the presence of carbachol (1 mM), viz. a decrease of phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate and phosphatidyl-4-phosphate by 34 and 21%, and an increase of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidic acid by 52 and 96% of basal controls respectively. 2. The IC30 values(More)
1. Scorpion toxin II is potent in inducing contracture and spontaneous contractions of the chick biventer cervicis muscle. In addition, this toxin induces membrane depolarization and blockade of neuromuscular transmission in this muscle preparation. The purpose of the present study is to explore the possible mechanism of actions of toxin II. 2. The muscle(More)
