Three Japanese glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) variants were investigated. G6PD 'Mediterranean-like' had markedly decreased activity, normal electrophoretic mobility, low Km G6P, low Km NADP, increased utilization of all three substrate analogues (2-deoxy-G6P, Gal-6P, and deamino-NADP) and slightly decreased heat stability and slightly biphasic pH(More)
Conditioned taste aversion (CTA) induced by the application of a novel taste such as sodium saccharin (Sac) as the conditioned stimulus (CS) and a malaise-inducing agent as the unconditioned stimulus (US), results in acquisition of CTA memory to Sac. In contrast, CTA is extinguished by repeated presentations of the CS without the US, resulting in(More)
Simultaneous stimulation of the antennal lobes (ALs) and the ascending fibers of the ventral nerve cord (AFV), two sensory inputs to the mushroom bodies (MBs), induces long-term enhancement (LTE) of subsequent AL-evoked MB responses. LTE induction requires activation of at least three signaling pathways to the MBs, mediated by nicotinic acetylcholine(More)
