Novel Members of the Vesl/Homer Family of PDZ Proteins That Bind Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors*
Vesl-1S (186 amino acids, also called Homer) is a protein containing EVH1- and PDZ-like domains whose expression in the hippocampus is regulated during long term potentiation (LTP), one form ofExpand
Reduced hippocampal LTP and spatial learning in mice lacking NMDA receptor ε1 subunit
THE NMDA (TV-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor channel is important for synaptic plasticity, which is thought to underlie learning, memory and development1, 2. The NMDA receptor channel is formed by atExpand
Reduced hippocampal LTP and spatial learning in mice lacking NMDA receptor epsilon 1 subunit.
The NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor channel is important for synaptic plasticity, which is thought to underlie learning, memory and development. The NMDA receptor channel is formed by at leastExpand
Adult Neurogenesis Modulates the Hippocampus-Dependent Period of Associative Fear Memory
Acquired memory initially depends on the hippocampus (HPC) for the process of cortical permanent memory formation. The mechanisms through which memory becomes progressively independent from the HPCExpand
Glutamate Receptors
Single-molecule fluorescence energy transfer methods allow us to determine the complete structural landscape between the donor and acceptor fluorophores introduced on the protein of interest. ThisExpand
3,5-Dihydroxyphenyl-glycine: a potent agonist of metabotropic glutamate receptors.
An amino acid, 3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG) induced current responses in Xenopus oocytes expressing a metabotropic glutamate receptor clone mGluR1. Apparent EC50 of DHPG for mGluR1 was slightlyExpand
Phosphorylation and Calmodulin Binding of the Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor Subtype 5 (mGluR5) Are Antagonistic in Vitro *
Metabotropic glutamate receptors, which are members of a G protein-coupled receptor family, mediate the glutamate responses by coupling to the intracellular signal transduction pathway. We hereinExpand
LTP induction within a narrow critical period of immature stages enhances the survival of newly generated neurons in the adult rat dentate gyrus
Neurogenesis occurs in the adult hippocampus of various animal species. A substantial fraction of newly generated neurons die before they mature, and the survival rate of new neurons are regulated inExpand
Enhancement of neurogenesis by running wheel exercises is suppressed in mice lacking NMDA receptor epsilon 1 subunit.
Neurogenesis continues throughout adulthood in the dentate gyrus in mice, and is regulated by environmental, endocrine, and pharmacological stimuli. Although running wheel exercises have beenExpand
Asymmetrical Allocation of NMDA Receptor ε2 Subunits in Hippocampal Circuitry
Despite its implications for higher order functions of the brain, little is currently known about the molecular basis of left-right asymmetry of the brain. Here we report that synaptic distributionExpand
