To determine whether spare muscarinic cholinergic receptors (mAChRs) exist in rat parotid acinar cells, we examined the effect of propylbenzilylcholine mustard (PBCM) on agonist (carbachol)-stimulated inositol trisphosphate (IP3) formation and on mAChR number, using l-[N-methyl-3H]scopolamine methyl chloride (NMS)-binding assays. Treatment with PBCM (1, 3,(More)
In this study, the effect of EGb 761, a standard extract of Ginkgo biloba leaf, on thymocyte apoptosis and age-related thymic atrophy and on peripheral immune dysfunctions was investigated in mice. When primary culture of thymocytes was preincubated with 100 microg/ml EGb 761 before their exposure to hydroxyl radicals (*OH) generated by Fe(2+)-mediated(More)
