To understand astrocyte-specific transcription, we have been studying the human gfa gene. This gene encodes glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), an intermediate filament protein expressed primarily in astrocytes. A survey of the gfa 5' flanking region showed it to contain several segments that contribute to expression of a chloramphenicol(More)
The recombinant N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor subunit zeta 1 and the heteromeric subunit combinations epsilon 1/zeta 1, epsilon 2/zeta 1, and epsilon 3/zeta 1 were expressed in Xenopus oocytes and their sensitivities to ethanol were investigated using the two-electrode voltage-clamp technique. NMDA-activated currents in oocytes expressing subunit(More)
