In vitro guidance of retinal ganglion cell axons by RAGS, a 25 kDa tectal protein related to ligands for Eph receptor tyrosine kinases
The results of previous in vitro experiments indicate that a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein may play an important role in the guidance of temporal retinal axons during theExpand

Molecular distinction between fetal and adult forms of muscle acetylcholine receptor
Distinct classes of acetylcholine receptor channels are formed when Xenopus oocytes are injected with combinations of the bovine α-, β-, γ- and δ- or the α-, β-, γ- and ε-subunit-specific messengerExpand

Primary structure of Electrophorus electricus sodium channel deduced from cDNA sequence
Cloning and sequence analysis of cDNA for the Electrophorus electricus electroplax sodium channel indicate that this protein, consisting of 1,820 amino acid residues, exhibits four repeated homologyExpand

Identification of Retinal Ganglion Cells and Their Projections Involved in Central Transmission of Information about Upward and Downward Image Motion
The direction of image motion is coded by direction-selective (DS) ganglion cells in the retina. Particularly, the ON DS ganglion cells project their axons specifically to terminal nuclei of theExpand

Existence of distinct sodium channel messenger RNAs in rat brain
The sodium channel is a voltage-gated ionic channel essential for the generation of action potentials1–3. It has been reported that the sodium channels purified from the electric organ ofExpand

Structural parts involved in activation and inactivation of the sodium channel
Structure–function relationships of the sodium channel expressed inXenopus oocytes have been investigated by the combined use of site–directed mutagenesis and patch-clamp recording. This studyExpand

Pleiotrophin signals increased tyrosine phosphorylation of β-catenin through inactivation of the intrinsic catalytic activity of the receptor-type protein tyrosine phosphatase β/ζ
Pleiotrophin (PTN) is a platelet-derived growth factor-inducible, 18-kDa heparin-binding cytokine that signals diverse phenotypes in normal and deregulated cellular growth and differentiation. ToExpand

Mice deficient in protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type Z are resistant to gastric ulcer induction by VacA of Helicobacter pylori
The vacuolating cytotoxin VacA produced by Helicobacter pylori causes massive cellular vacuolation in vitro and gastric tissue damage in vivo, leading to gastric ulcers, when administeredExpand

Axonal morphogenesis controlled by antagonistic roles of two CRMP subtypes in microtubule organization
During development, cells undergo dynamic morphological changes by rearrangements of the cytoskeleton including microtubules. However, molecular mechanisms underlying the microtubule remodelingExpand

Ventroptin: A BMP-4 Antagonist Expressed in a Double-Gradient Pattern in the Retina
In the visual system, the establishment of the anteroposterior and dorsoventral axes in the retina and tectum during development is important for topographic retinotectal projection. We identifiedExpand
