In the present study we have used a high affinity photoaffinity label (PAL) agonist (pGlu-His-Trp-Ser-125I-iodoTyr-D-Lys(para-N3-Benzoyl)-Leu-Arg-P roNHEt) and a PAL antagonist (NAcD2Nal-D4ClPhe-D3Pal-Ser-125I-iodo-NMeTyr-D-L ys(para-N3-Benzoyl)Leu-Lys(Isp) - Pro-D-Ala-NH2) to covalently label the GnRH receptor. Rat pituitary membranes were incubated 3 h(More)
Forskolin, a diterpene activator of adenylate cyclase, stimulates the production of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in a wide variety of cell types. In C6 glioma, used in this study, the anticonvulsant agent valproic acid (VPA) inhibited forskolin-stimulated cAMP accumulation in intact cells in a concentration-dependent manner.
