Differential Activation of Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor Gene Promoters I and III by Ca2+ Signals Evoked vial-type Voltage-dependent andN-Methyl-d-aspartate Receptor Ca2+Channels*
The increase in BDNF mRNA expression induced at high K+ was repressed not only by nicardipine, an antagonist for L-VDCC, but also by dl-amino-5-phosphonovalerate, an antagonists for NMDA-R, which was supported by the effects of antagonists on the Ca2+ influx.

Bivalves from Cretaceous Cold-Seep Deposits on Hokkaido, Japan
Cretaceous cold-seep deposits of the Yezo Group on Hokkaido, Japan, yield a rich and well-preserved mollusk fauna. The systematics of nine bivalve species previously reported from these deposits can…
A new gigantic Nucinella (Bivalvia : Solemyoida) from the cretaceous cold-seep deposit in Hokkaido, northern Japan
This new species is the oldest known Nucinella invader of deep cold-seep environments and its morphological features, associated fauna, lithofacies and carbon isotope suggest that N. gigantea lived in the bathyalCold Seep site, and depended on chemosymbiosis.

Many drilled specimens of Calyptogena pacifica and Conchocele bisecta were obtained from the upper Miocene Morai Formation in western Hokkaido and suggest they appear to have been drilled by the co-occurring naticids Euspira and Cryptonatica.
Fossil Adulomya (Vesicomyidae, Bivalvia) from Japan
The Cenozoic fossil record of the vesicomyid bivalve genus Adulomya in Japan is evaluated. Five of the nominal species are confirmed based on shell morphology, hinge dentition, and the shape of the…
