The factors that organize the internal membranes of cells are still poorly understood. We have been addressing this question using striated muscle cells, which have regular arrays of membranes that associate with the contractile apparatus in stereotypic patterns. Here we examine links between contractile structures and the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR)(More)
Ionotropic gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA(A) and GABA(C)) receptors mediate fast synaptic inhibition in the central nervous system. GABA(C) receptors are expressed predominantly in the retina on bipolar cell axon terminals, and are thought to mediate feedback inhibition from GABAergic amacrine cells. Utilizing the yeast two-hybrid system, we previously(More)
The physiological actions of biogenic amine and amino-acid neurotransmitters are terminated by their removal from the synaptic cleft by specific high-affinity transport proteins. The members of the Na(+)- and Cl(-)-dependent neurotransmitter transporter family expressed in bovine retina and responsible for the uptake of biogenic amine and amino-acid(More)
