Dopamine receptor activation regulates cyclic AMP levels and is critically involved in modulating neurotransmission in the striatum. Others have shown that alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA)-type glutamate receptor-mediated current is potentiated by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) activation. We made whole-cell patch(More)
NMDA receptors are regulated by several different calcium-dependent processes. To determine if the presence of the intracellular calcium-binding protein calbindin-D28k can influence the calcium regulation of NMDA receptor activity, human embryonic kidney 293 cells were co-transfected with cDNAs for NMDA receptor subunits and calbindin. Recordings were made(More)
The biphenyl derivative of 1,3-naphthalene disulfonic acid, known as Evans blue (EB), has been shown previously to specifically antagonize currents mediated by the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA) subtype of glutamate receptors (1). In contrast, we demonstrate herein that EB potently inhibits glutamate-evoked currents mediated by(More)
Strongyloides stercoralis is a widely distributed parasite that infects 30 to 100 million people worldwide. In the United States strongyloidiasis is recognized as an important infection in immigrants and refugees. Public health and commercial reference laboratories need a simple and reliable method for diagnosis of strongyloidiasis to identify and treat(More)
