Presynaptic motor neuron synthesizes and secretes acetylcholinesterase (AChE) at vertebrate neuromuscular junctions. In order to determine the retrograde role of muscle in regulating the expression of AChE in motor neuron, a chimeric co-culture of NG108-15 cell, a cholinergic cell line that resembles motor neuron, with chick myotube was established to mimic(More)
At the vertebrate neuromuscular junction (nmj), ATP is known to be coreleased with acetylcholine from the synaptic vesicles. We have previously shown that the P2Y1 receptor is localized at the nmj. Here, we extend the findings to show that another nucleotide receptor, P2Y2, is also localized there and with P2Y1 jointly mediates trophic responses to ATP. The(More)
The presence of a collagenous protein (ColQ) characterizes the collagen-tailed forms of acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase at vertebrate neuromuscular junctions which is tethered in the synaptic basal lamina. ColQ subunits, differing mostly by their signal sequences, are encoded by transcripts ColQ-1 and ColQ-1a, which are differentially(More)
Consolidation of the multiple traffic types present in current data centers over a single unified network is a big trend in the information technology industry. Extensions to 10G Ethernet are making it the most promising technology for achieving I/O consolidation. The emerging Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol plays a critical role in this(More)
Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is a direct mapping of Fibre Channel over lossless Ethernet being defined by the FC-BB-5 working group of the INCITS T11 Technical Committee. This paper presents a summary of the Fibre Channel architecture, elaborates the extensions needed for Ethernet to be lossless, and discusses the architectural models of FCoE, the way(More)
In vertebrate neuromuscular junctions (nmjs), adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) is stored at the motor nerve terminals and is co-released with acetylcholine during neural stimulation. Several lines of evidence suggest that the synaptic ATP can act as a synapse-organizing factor at the nmjs, mediated by metabotropic P2Y(1) receptors. P2Y(1) receptor mRNAs in(More)
