Normal maternal behavior, but increased pup mortality, in conditional oxytocin receptor knockout females.
Oxytocin (Oxt) and the Oxt receptor (Oxtr) are implicated in the onset of maternal behavior in a variety of species. Recently, we developed two Oxtr knockout lines: a total body knockout (Oxtr-/-)Expand

Behavioural studies using temporal and spatial inactivation of the oxytocin receptor.
Oxytocin (Oxt), synthesized in magnocellular neurons of the paraventricular (PVN) and supraoptic (SON) hypothalamic nuclei for transport to and release from the posterior pituitary, is releasedExpand

MicroRNA profiling in the mouse hypothalamus reveals oxytocin-regulating microRNA.
Oxytocin (Oxt), produced in the hypothalamic paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei for transport to and release from the posterior pituitary, was originally discovered through its role in lactationExpand

TRPA1-like channels enhance glycinergic transmission in medullary dorsal horn neurons.
The effect of icilin, a potent agonist of transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) and TRPM8, on glycinergic transmission was examined in mechanically isolated rat medullary dorsal horn neuronsExpand

Oxytocin inhibits head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cell migration by early growth response-1 upregulation
The effect of oxytocin (OXT) on cancer invasion is controversial. Few studies have examined the effect of early growth response-1 (EGR1) on the invasion of head and neck squamous cell carcinomaExpand

Identification of microRNA-Size, Small RNAs in Escherichia coli
Noncoding small regulatory RNA molecules control gene expression and microRNAs provide one of the best examples in eukaryotes. However, bacterial RNAs of comparable size to eukaryotic microRNAs haveExpand

Up-Regulation of microRNA* Strands by Their Target Transcripts
During microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis, one strand of a 21–23 nucleotide RNA duplex is preferentially selected for entry into an RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC). The other strand, known as theExpand

Comparison of gene expression between mandibular and iliac bone-derived cells
ObjectivesThe purpose of this study is to investigate the differences in gene expression between the human mandibular and iliac bone-derived cells (BCs) for better understanding of the site-specificExpand

NMDA Receptor in Vasopressin 1b Neurons Is Not Required for Short-Term Social Memory, Object Memory or Aggression
The arginine vasopressin 1b receptor (Avpr1b) plays an important role in social behaviors including aggression, social learning and memory. Genetic removal of Avpr1b from mouse models results inExpand

miR-7b Promoter Contains Negative Gene Elements
The typical miRNA and its nearby host gene are co-expressed by sharing the same promoter. We assumed that miR-7b and its host gene FICT might use an identical promoter for their brain specific geneExpand
