Differential modulation of Ih by 5‐HT receptors in mouse CA1 hippocampal neurons
Differential serotonergic modulation for the hyperpolarization‐activated current Ih is verified by immunofluorescence stainings with an antibody against the 5‐HT4A receptor, revealing receptor expression at the somata of the CA1 region.
Omega AGA toxin IVA blocks high-voltage-activated calcium channel currents in cultured pars intercerebralis neurosecretory cells of adult locusta migratoria
Brominated pyrrole alkaloids from marine Agelas sponges reduce depolarization-induced cellular calcium elevation.
Electrophysiological Investigation of Different Methods of Anesthesia in Lobster and Crayfish
CO2 is efficient to anaesthetize lobster and crayfish but due to low pH in water is stressful to the animals previous to anesthesia, and electric stunning or slowly warming just before preparation may meet ethical expectations regarding anaesthesia and to sacrifice crustaceans.
The 5-Hydroxytryptamine(4a) Receptor Is Palmitoylated at Two Different Sites, and Acylation Is Critically Involved in Regulation of Receptor Constitutive Activity*
The ability of palmitoylation to modulate the agonist-independent constitutive 5-HT4(a) receptor activity was demonstrated and mutation of the proximal palmitoyslation site significantly increases the capacity of receptors to convert from the inactive to the active (R*) form in the absence of agonist.
Functional neuroanatomy of the rhinophore of Aplysia punctata
The neuroanatomical and functional studies of the rhinophore open up a new avenue to analyze the olfactory system in Aplysia, as the complexity of changes in intracellular Ca2+-levels indicates, that processing of odour information takes place within the rh inophore ganglion.
Mode of action of membrane-disruptive lytic compounds from the marine dinoflagellate Alexandrium tamarense.
Endocytotic uptake of iron oxide nanoparticles by cultured brain microglial cells.
Effects of ocean acidification increase embryonic sensitivity to thermal extremes in Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua
It is concluded that ocean acidification constrains the thermal performance window of embryos, which has important implication for the susceptibility of cod to projected climate change.
5-HT-receptor-induced changes of the intracellular cAMP level monitored by a hyperpolarization-activated cation channel
Co-expressions of HvCNG channels in combination with the mouse 5-HT4(a)- or 5- HT1A- receptors and the corresponding Gs- or Gi-proteins were successful and allowed us to also verify receptor-induced changes of the cAMP level.
