The present study describes the optimisation of an autoradiography assay that provides a means to measure the in vitro potency of melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCH(1)) antagonists in native tissues and their ex vivo receptor occupancy. Initial localisation studies demonstrated that the MCH(1) receptor radioligand [(125)I]-S36057 bound to rat(More)
Rodent vas deferens is routinely used as a native tissue preparation to assess opioid pharmacology of new compounds. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a selected number of opioid compounds in the human vas deferens. Stable contractions to electrical field stimulation (EFS) were inhibited by guanethidine (1 μM) and tetrodotoxin (TTX, 1(More)
