SNAP-25 is a synaptosomal protein of 25 kDa, a key component of synaptic vesicle-docking/fusion machinery, and plays a critical role in exocytosis and neurotransmitter release. We previously reported that SNAP-25 in the hippocampal CA1 region is involved in consolidation of contextual fear memory and water-maze spatial memory (Hou et al. European J(More)
AIM To examine the effect of GNTI [5'-guanidinyl-17-(cyclopropylmethyl)-6,7- dehydro-4,5alpha-epoxy-3,14-dihydroxy-6,7-2',3'-indolomorphinan], a selective antagonist for the kappa opioid receptor, in the MK-801 (dizocilpine maleate)-induced behavioral model of psychosis in schizophrenia as a way to explore the involvement of the kappa opioid receptor in(More)
Tob (transducer of ErbB-2) is a negative cell cycle regulator with anti-proliferative activity in peripheral tissues. Our previous study identified Tob as a protein involved in hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation (M.L. Jin, X.M. Wang, Y.Y. Tu, X.H. Zhang, X. Gao, N. Guo, Z.Q. Xie, G.P. Zhao, N.H. Jing, B.M. Li, Y.Yu, The negative cell cycle(More)
Based on the glutamate dysfunction hypothesis for the pathophysiology of schizophrenia, MK801, a noncompetitive antagonist for the NMDA-type of glutamate receptors, was administered to mice by i.p. injection. We observed hyperlocomotion and stereotypy, two behavioral signs indicative of schizophrenic symptoms in human. Aided with automated movement(More)
The hmr19 gene was cloned from Streptomyces hygroscopicus subsp. yingchengensis strain 10-22, a bacterium strain producing agricultural antibiotics. Sequence similarity comparison indicates that hmr19 gene may encode a predicted protein with 14 putative transmembrane alpha-helical spanners, belonging to the drug:H(+) antiporter-2 family of the major(More)
