In this study we investigated whether cultured dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons from the adult rat express binding sites for calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). These were identified on fixed cells by using CGRP labeled at the N-terminal site with 1.4-nm gold particles. After 1 day in culture, about 20% of small to medium-sized DRG neurons showed(More)
Using the mouse passive transfer model the mean amplitude of miniature endplate potentials and endplate potentials of mice treated with myasthenic immunoglobulins was markedly decreased. Miniature endplate potential frequency and quantum content of endplate potentials were normal, arguing against a major presynaptic disarrangement. Under electron-microscopy(More)
FTY720 is a new oral immunomodulatory therapy for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). There is strong evidence that FTY720 has direct effects on brain resident cells such as astrocytes acting via sphingosine‑1‑phosphate (S1P) receptors. In the present study, the mRNA expression of S1P receptors as well as selected cytokines, chemokines and growth(More)
