  1. 1. Galanin receptor ligands

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Neurochemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Johan Runesson; Ülo Langel; Lena Mäler; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Galanin; GALP; GPCR; Agonist; GalR; Chimeric peptide; Inositol phosphate production; Receptor specificity; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : In the nervous system galanin primarily displays a modulatory role. The galaninergic system consists of a number of bioactive peptides with a highly plastic expression pattern and three different receptors. The lack of receptor subtype selective ligands and antibodies have severely hampered the charac-terization of this system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Selectivity of dopamine D1 and D2 receptor agonists – A combined computational approach

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marcus Malo; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dopamine; agonists; GPCRs; pharmacophore modeling; protein structure modeling; agonist selectivity;

    Abstract : Dopamine (DA) is an endogenous neurotransmitter acting in the central nervous system. DA plays a key role in many vital brain functions such as behavior, cognition, motor activity, learning, and reward. Dopamine receptors belong to the rhodopsin like family of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). READ MORE

  5. 5. Premenstrual dysphoric disorder in relation to neuroactive steroids and alcohol

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university
