Since melatonin and putative melatonin receptors can be detected in a variety of peripheral tissues, direct endocrine and paracrine actions of melatonin on the physiological functions of different organ systems in response to internal and external stimuli probably exist. As an extension of our earlier work on the pharmacological characterization of 2-[125I]iodomelatonin binding sites in the duck jejunum, the regional and diurnal variations of melatonin and putative melatonin receptors of… CONTINUE READING
