Accumulation of norepinephrine by tissue slices from spontaneously hypertensive rats

Abstract

Accumulation of 3H-1-norepinephrine (3H-1-NE) by heart and spleen slices from different aged spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) was compared with accumulation by slices from comparably aged normotensive rats (Wistar-Kyoto, WKY). Between weeks 4 and 9 there was a significant increase in accumulation by heart slices of the WKY; there was no further increase at weeks 13 and 16. The developmental pattern in slices of WKY spleen was different. Accumulation was the same at weeks 4 and 9; subsequently, there were significant increases at weeks 13 and 16. Slices of heart from SHR showed the same pattern of development as those from WKY. However, accumulation by slices of SHR spleen was significantly different from that by slices of WKY spleen. At all ages studied, SHR slices accumulated less 3H-1-NE. Furthermore, there was no significant increase in accumulation with age. The data show: 1. the course of development of the adrenergic neuron transport system is different in heart and spleen, and 2. accumulation of 3H-1-NE by SHR spleen, but not heart slices, is different from accumulation by the respective control tissues.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Incretins

Incretins are metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in glucose levels in the blood and they have been implicated in glycemic regulation in the remission phase of type 1 diabetes. Here is the latest research.

Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks

The circadian clock plays an important role in regulating transcriptional dynamics through changes in chromatin folding and remodelling. Discover the latest research on Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks here.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.
