Neurotrophins play important roles in the differentiation and survival of neurons during development, and in the regulation of synaptic transmission in adult brain. Brief treatment with nerve growth factor (NGF) enhances depolarization and ionomycin-induced dopamine and acetylcholine release from PC12 cells. The enhancing effect appears very quickly and(More)
Calnexin is a molecular chaperone that resides in the endoplasmic reticulum and participates in the folding and assembly of nascent proteins. In the present study, calnexin was found in both synaptic and non-synaptic membrane components of rat brain tissue. Immunohistochemical staining of mouse hippocampal sections revealed the presence of calnexin in the(More)
