Expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and of its functional receptor in neonatal and adult rat retina
The expression of mRNA coding for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and for its functional receptor, the full-length tyrosine kinase receptor trkB (trkB mRNA), was examined in early postnatalExpand
Immunohistochemical distribution of neurotrophins and their receptors in the rat retina and the effects of ischemia and reperfusion.
1. Neurotrophins are molecules that regulate the survival, development and maintenance of specific functions in different populations of nerve cells. 2. In the present work, we studied theExpand
Neurotrophins and their receptors in the tench retina during optic nerve regeneration
To understand the role of neurotrophins in the visual system, we investigated the distribution of both neurotrophins and their receptors within the retina of a fish that has the capacity toExpand
Microglia in normal and regenerating visual pathways of the tench (Tinca tinca L., 1758; Teleost) : a study with tomato lectin
We have studied the microglial cells in the normal and regenerating visual pathways of Tinca tinca (Cyprinid, Teleost) by using the lectin from Lycopersicum esculentum (tomato), which, in our case,Expand
Protein kinase C-like immunoreactive cells in embryo and adult chicken retinas.
Morphological evidence of a temporal parallelism between the appearance of the alpha isoform of protein kinase C (PKC) and some processes such as synaptogenesis in the plexiform layers of the chickenExpand
Calbindin D-28K distribution in the retina of the developing trout (Salmo fario L.)
The appearance of calbindin D-28K, a calcium-binding protein, during development of the trout retina was studied by immunohistochemistry. The first calbindin immunoreactive cells appear in the innerExpand
Expression and developmental regulation of the K+–Cl− cotransporter KCC2 in the cochlear nucleus
KCC2 is a neuron-specific Cl- transporter whose role in adult central neurons is to maintain low intracellular Cl- concentrations and, therefore, generate an inward-directed electrochemical gradientExpand
A Comparative Study of Protein Kinase C-Like Immunoreactive Cells in the Retina
The present study is a morphological and quantitative analysis of protein kinase C-like immunoreactive (PKC-L ir) bipolar cells in the retinas of five different vertebrate species (chicken, tench,Expand
Developmental regulation and adult maintenance of potassium channel proteins (Kv1.1 and Kv1.2) in the cochlear nucleus of the rat
The development and maintenance of the adult expression and distribution of Kv 1.1 and Kv 1.2, two voltage-dependent potassium channel subunits, were investigated in the anteroventral cochlearExpand
TRPC1 Channels Are Expressed in Pyramidal Neurons and in a Subset of Somatostatin Interneurons in the Rat Neocortex
Disturbances in calcium homeostasis due to canonical transient receptor potential (TRPC) and/or store-operated calcium (SOC) channels can play a key role in a large number of brain disorders. TRPCExpand
