Histamine dependent cyclic AMP generating system in rabbit CNS: Interaction with neuroregulators and forskolin
- 13 Downloads
Histamine (HI) potently stimulated, through H2-receptors, cAMP accumulation in rabbit cerebral cortical slices but not in retinal pieces. The action of HI in the cerebral cortex was not significantly affected by dopamine, serotonin, melatonin and GABA-ergic drugs. Forskolin markedly stimulated cAMP accumulation both in the cerebral cortex and retina. There was a synergistic interaction between HI and forskolin in the cerebral cortex, whereas in the retina HI decreased the forskolin-activated cAMP accumulation.
