Behavioral and biochemical evidence for a functional role of excitatory amino acids in the median raphe nucleus
Recent experiments have suggested the existence of excitatory amino acid (EAA)-containing afferents to the median raphe nucleus. In the present study we investigated the functional significance ofExpand

Nuclear translocation of the calcium-binding protein ALG-2 induced by the RNA-binding protein RBM22.
By yeast two-hybrid screening using the calcium-binding protein ALG-2 as bait a new target of ALG-2 was identified, the RNA-binding protein RBM22. In order to confirm these interactions in vivo weExpand

Control of food intake by kainate/quisqualate receptors in the median raphe nucleus
In previous studies we have reported that increases in food and water intake can be produced by microinjections of both NMDA selective and broad spectrum excitatory amino acid antagonists into theExpand

Interactive effects of stimulation of D1 and D2 dopamine receptors on Fos expression in the lateral habenula
We have previously shown that systemic administration of non-selective dopamine agonists results in a pronounced expression of the proto-oncoprotein Fos within the lateral habenula. In the currentExpand

Role of the Gut–Liver Axis in Driving Parenteral Nutrition-Associated Injury
For decades, parenteral nutrition (PN) has been a successful method for intravenous delivery of nutrition and remains an essential therapy for individuals with intolerance of enteral feedings orExpand

Impaired Gut–Systemic Signaling Drives Total Parenteral Nutrition-Associated Injury
Background: Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) provides all nutritional needs intravenously. Although lifesaving, enthusiasm is significantly tempered due to side effects of liver and gut injury, asExpand

Validating and Quantitating Effects of siRNA-based RNA Interference on GAPDH at the Protein Level Time Course Experiments Using the mTRAQ ® Reagents and the 4000 QTRAP ® System
RNA interference (RNAi) is a process in which exogenous, double-stranded RNAs that are complimentary to known mRNA's are introduced into a cell. These siRNA molecules cause the specific degradationExpand
