The expression of MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptor mRNA in several rat tissues.

Abstract

The mechanisms that mediate the various effects of melatonin in mammalian tissues are not always known. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate whether MT(1) and MT(2) melatonin receptors are expressed in certain tissues of the rat. The expression of MT(1) and MT(2) melatonin receptor mRNA was determined using a real-time quantitative RT-PCR… (More)
