Mechanisms underlying the daily and photoperiodic variations in mt(1) melatonin receptors were investigated in the pars tuberalis (PT) and suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) of Siberian and Syrian hamsters. Whatever its daily profile, melatonin receptor density was strongly increased in both structures and species after constant light exposure or pinealectomy, and decreased after a single melatonin injection, indicating melatonin involvement in the daily regulation of the receptor protein. This was… CONTINUE READING
