Diversity Revealed by a Novel Family of Cadherins Expressed in Neurons at a Synaptic Complex
In mammals, neurons are highly differentiated and play distinctive functions even in the same brain region. We found a novel cadherin-related neuronal receptor (Cnr) gene family by studyingExpand

Disruption of Dendritic Translation of CaMKIIα Impairs Stabilization of Synaptic Plasticity and Memory Consolidation
Local protein translation in dendrites could be a means for delivering synaptic proteins to their sites of action, perhaps in a spatially regulated fashion that could contribute to plasticity. ToExpand

CaMKII Activation in the Entorhinal Cortex Disrupts Previously Encoded Spatial Memory
To investigate the role of the entorhinal cortex in memory at a molecular level, we developed transgenic mice in which transgene expression was inducible and limited to the superficial layers of theExpand

Histopathological and ultrastructural features of Koi herpesvirus (KHV)-infected carp Cyprinus carpio, and the morphology and morphogenesis of KHV.
Epizootics of Koi herpesvirus (KHV) cause mass mortalities in koi carp and common carp worldwide. We used a newly developed 'per-gill infection' procedure with live KHV, and then conducted detailedExpand

The sheep and cattle Peyer's patch as a site of B-cell development.
In sheep and cattle, the ileal Peyer's patch (PP), which extends one-two meters along the terminal small intestine, is a primary lymphoid organ of B-cell development. B-cell diversity in the ileal PPExpand

Multiple Forms of Activity-Dependent Competition Refine Hippocampal Circuits In Vivo
Efficient memory formation relies on the establishment of functional hippocampal circuits. It has been proposed that synaptic connections are refined by neural activity to form functional brainExpand

Alterations in the GyrA Subunit of DNA Gyrase and the ParC Subunit of DNA Topoisomerase IV Associated with Quinolone Resistance in Enterococcus faecalis
ABSTRACT The gyrA and parC genes of 31 clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecalis, including fluoroquinolone-resistant isolates, were partially sequenced and analyzed for target alterations.Expand

Fyn Tyrosine Kinase in Sertoli Cells Is Involved in Mouse Spermatogenesis1
Abstract Fyn is a member of the Src family of non-receptor-type tyrosine kinases and plays an important role in signal transductions regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. FynExpand

Oligoclonal development of B cells bearing discrete Ig chains in chicken single germinal centers.
Chicken single germinal centers enable us to analyze the postbursal diversifications of B cells due to their easy isolation. Germinal center formation has peaked by day 7 of primary responses andExpand

Fibronectin receptor integrins are involved in mast cell activation.
Mast cells express fibronectin-receptor integrins on the cell surface, which are involved in cellular activation. In this study rat and mouse mast cells adhered to fibronectin through very lateExpand
