Melatonin reduces 3H-nitrendipine binding in the heart.

Abstract

The effect of melatonin on cardiac and brain voltage-sensitive calcium channels, as measured by 3H-nitrendipine binding, was examined in rats 3 hr after melatonin administration (either 0.5 or 1.0 mg/kg given subcutaneously). Scatchard analysis of the data on specific binding of 3H-nitrendipine with crude cardiac membranes from melatonin treated rats… (More)
