In the isolated papillary muscle of the rabbit the time course of the effects of selective beta- and alpha-adrenoceptor stimulation by isoprenaline and methoxamine, respectively, on the contractile force and on the level of 3',5'-cyclic AMP (cAMP) was determined. 1. Isoprenaline (3 times 10(-7) M) increased significantly the content of cAMP at 15 sec and elevated it to the maximal level-about twice the control value-at 30 sec after its administration, while the developed tension of the papillary muscle was also increased significantly at 15 sec and reached gradually its maximum at 90 sec. 2. Compared with isoprenaline methoxamine (10(-4) M) increased the developed tension very slowly: the maximal response was reached after 20 min. The level of cAMP, on the other hand, was changed neither before nor during the induction of the positive inotropic effect of methoxamine. 3. The phosphodiesterase inhibitor papaverine (10(-5) M) inhibited the PDE activity of the papillary muscle by about 40% after an incubation of 1 hr, and increased the level of cAMP significantly. The effects of isoprenaline on the contractile forced and on the level of cAMP were considerably enhanced by papaverine: the content of cAMP was increased by isoprenaline...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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

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.

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.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
