... predominates, enabling the efficient mobilization or storage of energy in a negative or positive energy balance, respectively. The release of noradrenaline from the sympathetic nervous system activates lipolysis in a depot-specific manner by initiating the canonical adrenergic receptor–G s -protein–adenylyl...

... in the gilthead sea bream ( Sparus aurata ). Pituitary and plasma arginine vasotocin (AVT) and isotocin (IT) levels, as well as hypothalamic pro-vasotocin (pro-VT) and pro-isotocin (pro-IT) mRNA expression levels, were analysed. In addition, the mRNA levels of three receptors, AVTR type V1a2, AVTR type V2 and ITR...

Recordings were also made from slowly adapting receptors, sensitive to bending the flagellum in particular directions, but not related...

... by hexamethonium. Despite testing a number of known cholinergic and histaminergic agents, no effective agonist for histamine was found. The results indicate the existence of a novel class of histamine-sensitive receptor with nicotinic features. In addition the unusual effects of a traditional Hl agonist, 2...

...Brian Phillip Oldfield ABSTRACT One of the fundamental problems in auditory research is the origin of the frequency selectivity of auditory receptors. Horridge (1960) demonstrated that the auditory interneurones in locusts were tuned to different sound frequencies, thus suggesting that the auditory...
