Dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, in 22 degrees C tissue culture containing nerve growth factor, taken from normal and trisomy 21 human fetal tissues, were subjected to current and voltage clamp measurements using a tight-seal whole-cell recording technique. Measurements were made between 1 and 2 weeks in culture, when the electrical properties of both(More)
The R-ras gene encodes a small GTPase that is a member of the Ras family. Despite close sequence similarities, R-Ras is functionally distinct from the prototypic Ras proteins; no transformative activity and no activating mutations of R-Ras in human malignancies have been reported for it. R-Ras activity appears inhibitory towards tumour proliferation and(More)
