Oligodendrocytes are the myelin forming glial cells of the CNS and are known to express receptors linked to ion channels and intracellular second messenger cascades. In this paper, we describe the intracellular calcium responses of cells from the oligodendrocyte lineage to application of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a naturally occurring, growth factor-like(More)
Microglia are the resident tissue macrophages of the central nervous system. They are rapidly activated by a variety of insults; and recently, receptors linked to cytoplasmic Ca(2+) signals have been implicated in such events. One potential class of receptors are those recognizing lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). LPA is a phospholipid signaling molecule that(More)
