Is a dopaminergic system involved in thyrotropin releasing hormone induced hyperthermia and in its potentiation by amphetamine?

Abstract

1. A dose-related hyperthermia is obtained in mice with TRH administered intraperitoneally. 2. This hyperthermia is reinforced by amphetamine given at doses which usually cause hypothermia. 3. p-Chloroamphetamine and L-Dopa also reinforce TRH hyperthermia. Apomorphine is not significantly active. 4. TRH hyperthermia is lowered significantly by alpha-methyl-tyrosine and haloperidol but not significantly by pimozide and chlorpromazine. TRH + Amph hyperthermia is not lowered by any of the DA antagonists tested even at doses reversing Amph hyperthermia. Direct participation of DA receptors is then doubtful. 5. All these variations of temperature have their acme a 15 min except for reserpine which, given 22 hours before, potentiates TRH + Amph hyperthermia after 30 min.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.
