Distinct roles of NMB and GRP in itch transmission
A key question in our understanding of itch coding mechanisms is whether itch is relayed by dedicated molecular and neuronal pathways. Previous studies suggested that gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP)Expand

Deficits in cognitive function and hippocampal plasticity in GM2/GD2 synthase knockout mice
In this study, we used GM2/GD2 synthase knockout (GM2/GD2−/−) mice to examine the influence of deficiency in ganglioside “a‐pathway” and “b‐pathway” on cognitive performances and hippocampal synapticExpand

Critical evaluation of the expression of gastrin-releasing peptide in dorsal root ganglia and spinal cord
There are substantial disagreements about the expression of gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) in sensory neurons and whether GRP antibody cross-reacts with substance P (SP). These concerns necessitateExpand

The Cu regulon of the human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans H99: Cuf1 activates distinct genes in response to both Cu excess and deficiency
Cryptococcus neoformans is a human fungal pathogen that is the causative agent of cryptococcosis and fatal meningitis in immuno-compromised hosts. Recent studies suggest that copper (Cu) acquisitionExpand
