GABAA Receptors and Tonic Inhibition: Towards an Improved Understanding of Agonist Binding and in vivo Expression of the Extrasynaptic a4b3d SubtypeDownload
The GABAA receptor is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter receptor in the central nervous system. Receptors containing the delta subunit generate tonic inhibition due to their extrasynaptic expression, high affinity for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and slow densensitization kinetics. The...
Investigating the Effects of N2-Acetylphenelzine in the Sexes in Experimental Autoimmune EncephalomyelitisDownload
Chronic pain is a highly prevalent symptom in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and affects approximately half of patients at some stage of the disease. MS affects women more frequently than men and neuropathic pain is also reported as more severe, and frequent, in females with the disease. The underlying...
Calcium/calmodulin dependent protein kinase 2 (CaMKII) is a multifunctional serine/threonine kinase that is highly abundant in the central nervous system. It plays important roles in many neuronal functions, including neurite extension and maturation, activity-dependent synaptic plasticity and...
Role of Glutamate and GABA in a mouse model expressing mutant human APP in the absence of NPC1 proteinDownload
Cholesterol plays a critical role in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathogenesis, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. To address this issue we have generated a line of ANPC transgenic mice that overexpress mutant-human amyloid precursor protein in the absence of cholesterol transporting...
Variation in in vivo prefrontal GABA, glutamate and glutamine – effects of reproductive factors, cortisol and major depressive disorderDownload
Variations in glutamate and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), excitatory and inhibitory amino acid neurotransmitters in the brain, have been linked with cyclical changes across the menstrual cycle and in stress and stress-related mental disorders. We used 3.0 Tesla proton magnetic resonance...
γ-Aminobutyric Acid Up-Regulates the Expression of a Novel Secretogranin-II Messenger Ribonucleic Acid in the Goldfish PituitaryDownload
An RNA-arbitrarily primed PCR differential display strategy was used to identify candidate genes in the pituitary that are up-regulated by endogenously activated g-aminobutyric acid (GABA) systems that may also be involved in the control of reproduction. Goldfish were injected with the GABA...
