How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The chemical structures of some antidepressants are similar to those of recently described amine-containing ligands of acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs). ASICs are expressed in brain neurons and participate in numerous CNS functions. As such, they can be related to antidepressants action or side effects. We therefore studied the actions of a series...
The transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 (TRPV1) is a nonselective cation channel gated by numerous chemical and physical stimuli (protons, capsaicin, heat, etc). TRPV1 receptors are important integrators of multiple noxious and inflammatory signals in vertebrates. Modulation of TRPV1 receptors activity is considered to be a promising stra...
Proton-gated channels of the ASIC family are widely distributed in the mammalian brain, and, according to the recent data, participate in synaptic transmission. However, ASIC-mediated currents are small, and special efforts are required to detect them. This prompts the search for endogenous ASIC ligands, which can activate or potentiate these chann...
TRPV1 (vanilloid) receptors are activated by different types of stimuli including capsaicin, acidification and heat. Various ligands demonstrate stimulus-dependent action on TRPV1. In the present work we studied the action of polypeptides isolated from sea anemone Heteractis crispa (APHC1, APHC2 and APHC3) on rat TRPV1 receptors stably expressed in...
Antidepressants have many targets in the central nervous system. A growing body of data demonstrates the influence of antidepressants on glutamatergic neurotransmission. In the present work, we studied the inhibition of native Ca2+-permeable and Ca2+-impermeable α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptors in rat brain neur...
