An expression system that utilized yeast copper metallothionein promoter and ubiquitin fusion technology to express the human estrogen receptor gene in yeast is described. We have studied the biochemical and transcriptional regulatory properties of the human estrogen receptor. The biochemical properties of the yeast expressed receptors are identical to the(More)
PURPOSE We assayed the effects of rapamycin, an immunomodulatory agent known to inhibit the activity of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) cascade, on candidate gene expression and single unit firing properties in cultured rat hippocampal neurons as a strategy to define the effects of rapamycin on neuronal gene transcription and excitability.
