PSD-95 expression controls L-DOPA dyskinesia through dopamine D1 receptor trafficking.
L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia (LID), a detrimental consequence of dopamine replacement therapy for Parkinson's disease, is associated with an alteration in dopamine D1 receptor (D1R) and glutamateExpand

Functional Properties of Internalization-Deficient P2X4 Receptors Reveal a Novel Mechanism of Ligand-Gated Channel Facilitation by Ivermectin
Although P2X receptors within the central nervous system mediate excitatory ATP synaptic transmission, the identity of central ATP-gated channels has not yet been elucidated. P2X4, the most widelyExpand

ATP P2X Receptors Downregulate AMPA Receptor Trafficking and Postsynaptic Efficacy in Hippocampal Neurons
P2X receptors (P2XRs) are ATP-gated cation channels widely expressed in the brain where they mediate action of extracellular ATP released by neurons or glia. Although purinergic signaling hasExpand

Expression of GABA receptor rho subunits in rat brain.
The GABA receptor rho1, rho2, and rho3 subunits are expressed in the retina where they form bicuculline-insensitive GABA(C) receptors. We used northern blot, in situ hybridization, and RT-PCRExpand

Nanobodies that block gating of the P2X7 ion channel ameliorate inflammation
Single-domain antibodies called nanobodies block P2X7, an inflammatory ion channel, reducing skin and kidney inflammation in mice. Tackling a tough target: An ATP-sensitive channel Injured and dyingExpand

Molecular and Electrophysiological Evidence for a GABAC Receptor in Thyrotropin-Secreting Cells.
In the pituitary, GABA regulates the release of several hormones via different receptors. GABAC receptors are heterooligomers that differ from GABAA receptors in that they containρ -subunits and areExpand

Molecular and electrophysiological evidence for a GABAc receptor in thyrotropin-secreting cells.
In the pituitary, GABA regulates the release of several hormones via different receptors. GABA(C) receptors are heterooligomers that differ from GABA(A) receptors in that they contain p-subunits andExpand

Regulation of intracellular pH in rat lactotrophs: involvement of anionic exchangers.
Regulation of the intracellular pH (pHi) of normal rat lactotrophs was studied. As this cell type, cultured with 10% FCS, can achieve a relatively alkaline pHi (7.3-7.5), we investigated the presenceExpand

Molecular diversity of GABA-gated chloride channels in the rat anterior pituitary
mRNA expression of GABA-gated Cl(-)-channels in rat antepituitary was evaluated by using an reverse-transcribed (RT)-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method with degenerate and specificExpand
