Extensive Diversity of Ig-Superfamily Proteins in the Immune System of Insects
The extensive somatic diversification of immune receptors is a hallmark of higher vertebrates. However, whether molecular diversity contributes to immune protection in invertebrates is unknown. WeExpand
Homophilic Dscam Interactions Control Complex Dendrite Morphogenesis
Alternative splicing of the Drosophila gene Dscam results in up to 38,016 different receptor isoforms proposed to interact by isoform-specific homophilic binding. We report that Dscam controlsExpand
Astroglia in Medullary Dorsal Horn (Trigeminal Spinal Subnucleus Caudalis) Are Involved in Trigeminal Neuropathic Pain Mechanisms
The aim of this study was to investigate whether astroglia in the medullary dorsal horn (trigeminal spinal subnucleus caudalis; Vc) may be involved in orofacial neuropathic pain following trigeminalExpand
Glycine Is Used as a Transmitter by Decrementing Expiratory Neurons of the Ventrolateral Medulla in the Rat
The medullary respiratory network involves various types of respiratory neurons. The present study focused on possible inhibitory neurons called decrementing expiratory (E-DEC) neurons and aimed toExpand
The Molecular Diversity of Dscam Is Functionally Required for Neuronal Wiring Specificity in Drosophila
Alternative splicing of Dscam generates an enormous molecular diversity with maximally 38,016 different receptors. Whether this large diversity is required in vivo is currently unclear. We examinedExpand
Combinations of AMPA Receptor Subunit Expression in Individual Cortical Neurons Correlate with Expression of Specific Calcium-Binding Proteins
The functional properties of AMPA-type glutamate receptors are determined by their subunit composition. We detected the expression of the AMPA receptor subunits (GluR1–GluR4) in neurons in theExpand
Organization of pERK‐immunoreactive cells in trigeminal spinal nucleus caudalis and upper cervical cord following capsaicin injection into oral and craniofacial regions in rats
To define the somatotopic arrangement of neurons in the trigeminal spinal subnucleus caudalis and upper cervical cord activated by acute noxious stimulation of various orofacial sites, pERKExpand
Distribution of glycine transporter 2 mRNA-containing neurons in relation to glutamic acid decarboxylase mRNA-containing neurons in rat medulla
We studied the distribution of medullary glycinergic neurons in relation to GABAergic neurons, by using in situ hybridization method for mRNA encoding either glycine transporter 2 (GLYT2) or glutamicExpand
Supra- and juxtatrigeminal inhibitory premotor neurons with bifurcating axons projecting to masseter motoneurons on both sides
Inhibitory neurons participating in the bilateral disynaptic inhibition of jaw-closing motoneurons by stimulation of unilateral trigeminal sensory branches were searched for in the reticularExpand
Selective innervation of different target tissues in guinea-pig cranial exocrine glands by sub-populations of parasympathetic and sympathetic neurons.
This study has used multiple-labelling immunohistochemistry and quantitative analysis to examine the projections of subpopulations of parasympathetic and sympathetic neurons to different vascular andExpand
