The inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R) is highly expressed in Purkinje neurons (PNs) and is thought to be essential for the induction of long-term depression at parallel-fiber-PN synapses. Here, by imaging the fluorescence intensity of the low-affinity Ca2+ indicator inside the Ca2+ stores in the permeabilized single PNs, we analyzed the kinetics(More)
The expression of mRNA for chemorepellent factors slit1 and slit2 in rat peripheral nerve regeneration was examined. The mRNA of slit2 increased when the continuity of basal lamina tubes was disrupted, not when it remained and the Slit2 protein was located in Schwann cells. These results suggest that disruption of the continuity of basal lamina tubes(More)
The honeybee species native to two remote islands (Amami-Oshima and Tsushima) in Japan were previously reported to be morphologically distinct from the Japanese honeybee Apis cerana japonica. To our knowledge, this is the first study to analyze the complete mitochondrial genome of the honeybee species from the two islands. The mitochondrial genome was a(More)
