Developmental changes in the membrane current pattern, K+ buffer capacity, and morphology of glial cells in the corpus callosum slice
Recent studies indicated that glial cells in tissue culture can express a variety of different voltage-gated channels, while little is known about the presence of such channels in glial cells inExpand

Immunocytochemical demonstration of vimentin in astrocytes and ependymal cells of developing and adult mouse nervous system
The occurrence of vimentin, a specific intermediate filament protein, has been studied by immunoflourescence microscopy in tissue of adult and embryonic brain as well as in cell cultures from nervousExpand

Calcium entry through kainate receptors and resulting potassium-channel blockade in Bergmann glial cells.
Glutamate receptors, the most abundant excitatory transmitter receptors in the brain, are not restricted to neurons; they have also been detected on glial cells. Bergmann glial cells in mouseExpand

Distribution and morphology of tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive neurons in the developing mouse retina.
An antibody to tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), the rate-limiting enzyme in the production of catecholamines, was used to examine the morphology and distribution of catecholaminergic neurons inExpand

GABA‐ and glutamate‐activated currents in glial cells of the mouse corpus callosum slice
Whole‐cell transmitter‐activated currents were recorded with the patch‐clamp technique from glial cells in thin frontal brain slices of the corpus callosum. In slices from 6‐ to 8‐day‐old mice,Expand

Sodium and Calcium Currents in Glial Cells of the Mouse Corpus Callosum Slice
We studied Na+ and Ca2+ currents in glial cells during the development of the corpus callosum in situ. Glioblasts and oligodendrocytes from frontal brain slices of postnatal day (P) 3 to P18 miceExpand

Characterization of microglial cells and their response to stimulation in an organotypic retinal culture system
An organotypic culture system of the early postnatal rat retina was developed to study microglial activation within a tissue environment. One day after tissue preparation, microglial cells of theExpand

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 earlyExpand
