Adrenergic binding sites and enzyme activities in the heart of hyperthyroid rats

V FeltM Vavrinková


In present study interactions of some adrenergic drugs with the binding of 3H-norepinephrine (NE) and response of some enzymatic systems in the heart of rats with pharmacological hyperthyroidism have been investigated. Binding of NE to cardiac particles was inhibited by isoproterenol, propranolol and in lower concentrations by another beta-blocking drug trimepranol both in control and hyperthyroid hearts in the same degree. However, after addition of nonradioactive norepinephrine (10(-3) M) the degree of displacement was lower in hyperthyroid than in euthyroid group. Activity of adenylate cyclase was lower in hyperthyroid cardiac particles. This difference remained preserved after stimulation by norepinephrine or NaF. The activities of hormone-sensitive lipase and lipoprotein lipase were increased in preparation of hyperthyroid hearts. The phosphorylase "a" activity was also increased in hyperthyroid cardiac particles. There was no change in cardiac adrenergic binding sites properties in hyperthyroidism with the exception of less displacement of NE by nonlabelled hormone. The results indicate that the increased lipolytic and phosphorylase "a" activities in hyperthyroid hearts are not necessarily linked to elevated activity of a...Continue Reading

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.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
