An expression profile of genes active in the human colonic mucosa was obtained by collecting 959 partial sequences from a 3'-directed cDNA library. Seven genes were found to produce mRNA each of which comprised more than 1% of total mRNA. Four of these genes are novel, and are likely to be uniquely expressed in the colonic mucosa, and the other three have(More)
Activity of thalamic neurons has been shown to be modulated via type-1 metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR1) activation, which initiates an intracellular Ca signaling cascade involving phospholipase Cbeta4 (PLCbeta4) and leading to the activation of conventional protein kinase C (cPKC). In the present study, we investigated the role of PLCbeta4 in(More)
