Immunocytochemical demonstration of vimentin in astrocytes and ependymal cells of developing and adult mouse nervous system
The results show that vimentin and GFA protein coexist in one cell type not only in primary cultures in vitro but also in the intact tissue in situ.
Developmental changes in the membrane current pattern, K+ buffer capacity, and morphology of glial cells in the corpus callosum slice
It is suggested that cells with oligodendrocyte-type electrophysiology are promyelinating oligodendedrocytes, and that, in the more mature corpus callosum, small membrane polarizations in a physiological range can lead to extensive changes in the K+ gradient across the glial membrane within a few milliseconds.
Calcium entry through kainate receptors and resulting potassium-channel blockade in Bergmann glial cells.
Bergmann glial cells in mouse cerebellar slices revealed a kainate-type glutamate receptor with a sigmoid current-to-voltage relation, as demonstrated with the patch-clamp technique.
Sodium and Calcium Currents in Glial Cells of the Mouse Corpus Callosum Slice
The expression pattern of stage‐specific antigens in the corpus callosum in situ was determined and the existence of numerous mature, O10‐positive oligodendrocytes at P18, which expressed Ca2+ channels in vitro, failed to detect Ca2- currents in situ at this stage.

It is discussed is that the emergence of microglial cells during development may be related to cell death, whereas at adulthood the function(s) of microGLial cells remains obscure.
GABA‐ and glutamate‐activated currents in glial cells of the mouse corpus callosum slice
The amplitude of GABA‐activated currents recorded in oligodendrocytes was significantly smaller than that from glioblasts, while glutamate responses did not show marked differences in either cell type.
Characterization of microglial cells and their response to stimulation in an organotypic retinal culture system
The data suggest that the organotypic culture of the retina is a useful model for studying microglial activation from its resting form and both the release from the tissue and the morphological changes of the microglia were reversible.
Cell type specificity of a neural cell surface antigen recognized by the monoclonal antibody A2B5
SummaryThe monoclonal antibody A2B5 reacts with the surface membrane of most neurons in monolayer cultures of cerebellum, retina, spinal cord, and dorsal root ganglion of embryonic and early
Microglial cell responses in the rabbit retina following transection of the optic nerve
The response of retinal microglial cells, which accompanies retrograde degeneration of ganglion cell axons and perikarya (induced by transection of the optic nerve), was studied in whole‐mounted
