1. Whole-cell voltage-clamp recordings were made from postnatal rat suprachiasmatic (SCN) neurones to investigate possible modulation by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-activated current (IGABA). 2. 5-HT reversibly inhibited IGABA in a concentration-dependent manner (10(-10) to 10(-6) M).(More)
We have previously reported that postnatal hypothalamic neurons can be maintained in low density culture using astrocyte conditioned medium. The present study was designed to establish a method for the culture of postnatal hypothalamic neurons in a chemically defined medium. Neurons were dissociated from the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus(More)
The previous release of our Full-parasites database (http://fullmal.hgc.jp/) brought enhanced functionality, an expanded full-length cDNA content, and new RNA-Seq datasets from several important apicomplexan parasites. The 2015 update witnesses the major shift in the databases content with focus on diverse transcriptomes of the apicomplexan parasites. The(More)
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) is considered to be an endogenous circadian pacemaker. Previous studies have suggested functional roles of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the control of circadian rhythms. In this study, the responses to applied GABA in cultured SCN neurons dissociated from postnatal rat hypothalamus were investigated using whole-cell(More)
None of anticoccidial vaccines (Trivalent TAM™, monovalent Neca™ and imported pentavalent Paracox(®)-5) contain Eimeria brunetti in Japan, which has not been regarded as a cause of coccidiosis, because of its low prevalence. However, we have recently reported the evidence of a high nationwide prevalence of this species. In this report, we describe the(More)
