The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) subtype of the glutamate receptor has recently been identified in bone, but the molecular composition of this receptor expressed by bone cells is unknown. NMDA receptor (NMDAR) is a hetero-oligomeric protein composed of two classes of subunits, the essential subunit NR1 and NR2A to D subunits that do not by themselves produce(More)
1. The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptor, widely distributed in the mammalian nervous system, has recently been identified in bone. In this study, we have investigated whether NMDA receptors expressed by osteoclasts have an electrophysiological activity. 2. Using the patch clamp technique two agonists of the NMDA receptor, L-glutamate (Glu) and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the function of the Hippo pathway member Yes-associated protein (Yap, gene name Yap1) in skeletal muscle fibres in vivo. Specifically we bred an inducible, skeletal muscle fibre-specific knock-in mouse model (MCK-tTA-hYAP1 S127A) to test whether the over expression of constitutively active Yap (hYAP1 S127A) is(More)
