Stargazin modulates AMPA receptor gating and trafficking by distinct domains
AMPA (α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid) receptors mediate fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the brain. These ion channels rapidly deactivate and desensitize, whichExpand

Considerations of a shunt active filter based on voltage detection for installation on a long distribution feeder
This paper deals with a curious phenomenon referred to as the "whack-a-mole" that may occur in a long-distance distribution feeder having many capacitors for power factor correction. The whack-a-moleExpand

Intragenic deletion in the gene encoding ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolase in gad mice
The gracile axonal dystrophy (gad) mouse is an autosomal recessive mutant that shows sensory ataxia at an early stage, followed by motor ataxia at a later stage. Pathologically, the mutant isExpand

Ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolase L1 binds to and stabilizes monoubiquitin in neuron.
Mammalian neuronal cells abundantly express a deubiquitylating enzyme, ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolase 1 (UCH L1). Mutations in UCH L1 are linked to Parkinson's disease as well as gracile axonalExpand

Microglia–Müller Glia Cell Interactions Control Neurotrophic Factor Production during Light-Induced Retinal Degeneration
Activation of microglia commonly occurs in response to a wide variety of pathological stimuli including trauma, axotomy, ischemia, and degeneration in the CNS. In the retina, prolonged orExpand

Modification of Glial–Neuronal Cell Interactions Prevents Photoreceptor Apoptosis during Light-Induced Retinal Degeneration
Prolonged or high-intensity exposure to visible light leads to photoreceptor cell death. In this study, we demonstrate a novel pathway of light-induced photoreceptor apoptosis involving theExpand

Gastrin-releasing peptide mediates photic entrainable signals to dorsal subsets of suprachiasmatic nucleus via induction of Period gene in mice.
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), locus of the central circadian clock, consists of two neuronal populations (i.e., a light-recipient ventral SCN subpopulation directly entrained by light and aExpand

Localization of ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1 in mouse ova and its function in the plasma membrane to block polyspermy.
Protein degradation is essential for oogenesis and embryogenesis. The ubiquitin-proteasome system regulates many cellular processes via the rapid degradation of specific proteins. UbiquitinExpand

Photochemical activity and components of membrane preparations from blue-green algae. I. Coexistence of two photosystems in relation to chlorophyll a and removal of phycocyanin.
Abstract Nostoc muscorum (Strain 7119) cells were disrupted and the accessory pigment phycocyanin was removed from membrane fragments by digitonin treatment. The phycocyanin-depleted membraneExpand

Alterations of structure and hydrolase activity of parkinsonism-associated human ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase L1 variants.
Ubiquitin carboxyl-terminal hydrolase L1 (UCH-L1) is a neuron-specific ubiquitin recycling enzyme. A mutation at residue 93 and polymorphism at residue 18 within human UCH-L1 are linked to familialExpand
