Selective scarcity of NMDA receptor channel subunits in the stratum lucidum (mossy fibre‐recipient layer) of the mouse hippocampal CA3 subfield
Hippocampal synapses express two distinct forms of the long‐term potentiation (LTP), i.e. NMDA receptor‐dependent and ‐independent LTPs. To understand its molecular‐anatomical basis, we producedExpand

Developmental changes in distribution of NMDA receptor channel subunit mRNAs.
In situ hybridization analyses have revealed drastic changes in expression and distribution of five subunit mRNAs of the mouse NMDA receptor channel during brain development. The epsilon 1 subunitExpand

Distinct distributions of five N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate receptor channel subunit mRNAs in the forebrain
The distributions of five NMDA receptor channel subunit mRNAs in the mouse forebrain at postnatal day 21 were semiquantitatively examined by in situ hybridization with subunit‐specificExpand

Interleukin 7 is produced by human intestinal epithelial cells and regulates the proliferation of intestinal mucosal lymphocytes.
The interaction of mucosal lymphocytes and intestinal epithelial cells is thought to be important in regulating immune response in the intestinal mucosa, but conclusive evidence is limited. Here weExpand

Distinct spatiotemporal expressions of five NMDA receptor channel subunit mRNAs in the cerebellum
The distribution of five NMDA receptor channel subunit mRNAs was examined in the mouse cerebellum from embryonic day 13 through postnatal day 56, by in situ hybridization with subunit‐specificExpand

Patterns of expression for the mRNA corresponding to the four isoforms of phospholipase Cβ in mouse brain
Ligand binding to neurotransmitter and hormone receptors which couple to the Gq subclass of GTP‐binding protein leads to the activation of phospholipase Cβ (PLCβ) which hydrolysesExpand

Regulation of intracellular dynamics of Smad4 by its leucine‐rich nuclear export signal
Smad family proteins play a pivotal role in transmitting the transforming growth factor‐β (TGF‐β) superfamily signals from the cell surface to the nucleus. In response to ligand stimulation, Smad4Expand

Laparoscopic ultralow anterior resection combined withPer Anum intersphincteric rectal dissection for lower rectal cancer
Rectal resection with total mesorectal excision is perhaps the most technically challenging of laparoscopic procedures, and the purpose of this study was to show that laparoscopic ultralow anteriorExpand

Molecular cloning and tissue distribution of an alternatively spliced variant of an A‐type K+ channel α‐subunit, Kv4.3 in the rat
We describe here (1) the heterogeneous expression of Ca2+‐independent transient (A‐type) K+ channel α‐subunits (Kv1.4, Kv3.3, Kv3.4, Kv4.2 and Kv4.3) in rat smooth muscle, heart and brain, (2) theExpand

Distinct spatiotemporal distributions of the N‐Methyl‐D‐aspartate receptor channel subunit mRNAs in the mouse cervical cord
The distribution of five N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate (NMDA) receptor channel subunit mRNAs in the mouse spinal cord from embryonic day 13 (E13) through postnatal day 56 (P56) was semiquantitatively examinedExpand
