Dopamine D2/3 receptor (D2/3R) agonist radiopharmaceuticals are considered superior to antagonists to detect dopamine release, e.g. induced by amphetamines. Agonists bind preferentially to the high-affinity state of the dopamine D2R, which has been proposed as the reason why agonists are

5-HT is a powerful vasoconstrictor substance in renal vasculature (mainly by 5-HT₂ activation). Nevertheless, 5-HT is notable for its dual cardiovascular effects, producing both vasodilator and vasoconstrictor actions. This study aimed to investigate whether, behind the predominant serotonergic vasoconstrictor action

Somatic mutations of the potassium channel KCNJ5 are found in 40% of aldosterone producing adenomas (APAs). APA-related mutations of KCNJ5 lead to a pathological Na(+) permeability and a rise in cytosolic Ca(2+), the latter presumably by depolarizing the membrane and

A novel metal-doping strategy was developed for the construction of iron-decorated microporous aromatic polymers with high small-gas-uptake capacities. Cost-effective ferrocene-functionalized microporous aromatic polymers (FMAPs) were constructed by a one-step Friedel-Crafts reaction of ferrocene and s-triazine monomers. The introduction of ferrocene
