      Melatonin, the pineal gland hormone, modulates a-bungarotoxin sensitive nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in sympathetic nerve terminal, cerebellum and chick retina imposing a diurnal variation in functional responses ...

    • A novel physiological property of snake bradykinin-potentiating peptides-Reversion of MK-801 inhibition of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors

      The first naturally occurring angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors described are pyroglutamyl proline-rich oligopeptides, found in the venom of the viper Bothrops jararaca, and named as bradykinin-potentiating ...

    • Presence of mRNA of muscle nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subunits and an epsilon-subunit splice variant in the mouse brain 

      Ghedini, Paulo César [UNIFESP]; Honda, Luciana [UNIFESP]; Avellar, Maria Christina Werneck [UNIFESP]; Souccar, Caden [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2010-03-16)
      Transcripts encoding for alpha 1, beta 1, delta, gamma and epsilon (and its splice variant epsilon(S)) subunits of the muscle-type nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) were assessed using reverse transcription followed ...

    • Quantitative changes of nicotinic receptors in the hippocampus of dystrophin-deficient mice 

      Ghedini, Paulo César [UNIFESP]; Avellar, Maria Christina Werneck [UNIFESP]; Lima, Thereza Cristina Monteiro de; Lima-Landman, Maria Teresa Riggio de [UNIFESP]; Lapa, Antonio José [UNIFESP]; Souccar, Caden [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2012-11-05)
      Lack of dystrophin in Duchenne muscle dystrophy (DMD) and in the mutant mdx mouse results in progressive muscle degeneration, structural changes at the neuromuscular junction, and destabilization of the nicotinic acetylcholine ...
