Histamine induces dose-dependent increases in inositol-monophosphate, inositol-bisphosphate, and inositol-triphosphate in cultured human pulmonary artery and umbilical vein endothelial cells. Preincubation with isoproterenol results in synergistic potentiation of polyphosphoinositide breakdown. Isoproterenol does not change the effect of histamine, however, it does increase the potency of histamine in stimulating phosphoinositide turnover. This effect of isoproterenol is time-dependent reaching 350% at 120 min of preincubation. A synergistic potentiation of histamine-induced polyphosphoinositide breakdown by cyclic AMP stimulators has been observed after pretreatment of cultured endothelial cells with forskolin, dibutyryl cyclic AMP and cholera toxin. Our data suggest that isoproterenol potentiates histamine-induced polyphosphoinositide breakdown by operating via the adenylate cyclase system. This is the first evidence of synergistic potentiation of polyphosphoinositide breakdown by adenylate cyclase-coupled receptors in cultured human endothial cells.

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.

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.
