Males, but not females, overproduce dopamine receptors in the striatum of rats across the periadolescent period followed by their elimination during young adulthood. In order to investigate the role that gonadal hormones play in this pubertal process, rats were castrated or ovariectomized at postnatal day (P) 28 when estrogen and testosterone levels are(More)
D(1) and D(2) receptors are overproduced and pruned in the mammalian striatum during the periadolescent period. The mechanism that underlies this process in striatum is unknown. However, previous research has shown that the activity-dependent pruning of dendrites and synapses in somatosensory cortex and the visual fields is mediated by glutamatergic actions(More)
The human neuronal Cys-loop ligand-gated ion channel superfamily of ion channels are important determinants of human behavior and the target of many drugs. It is essential for their structural characterization to achieve high-level expression in a functional state. The aim of this work was to establish stable mammalian cell lines that enable high-level(More)
The ability of human serum albumin (HSA) to bind fatty acids (FA) in multiple sites has been revealed by many studies. Here we detect and characterize nine individual binding sites by two-dimensional (2D) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy of 18-[(13)C]-oleic acid (OA) complexed with HSA. We characterize site-specific FA binding by addition of(More)
