Muscarinic receptor subtypes.
In 1914, Sir Henry Dale provided the basis for the classical and comfortable definition of muscarinic and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors: Muscarinic receptors are selectively activated byExpand

Genome-wide analysis of repressor element 1 silencing transcription factor/neuron-restrictive silencing factor (REST/NRSF) target genes.
The completion of whole genome sequencing projects has provided the genetic instructions of life. However, whereas the identification of gene coding regions has progressed, the mapping ofExpand

A microRNA-based gene dysregulation pathway in Huntington's disease
Huntington's disease (HD) is a dominantly-inherited neurodegenerative disorder which is incurable and ultimately fatal. HD is characterised by widespread mRNA dysregulation, particularly in neuronsExpand

Antagonist binding properties of five cloned muscarinic receptors expressed in CHO-K1 cells.
A family of five cholinergic muscarinic receptor genes (m1, m2, m3, m4, and m5) has recently been identified and cloned. In order to investigate the pharmacological properties of the individualExpand

REST Regulates Distinct Transcriptional Networks in Embryonic and Neural Stem Cells
The maintenance of pluripotency and specification of cellular lineages during embryonic development are controlled by transcriptional regulatory networks, which coordinate specific sets of genesExpand

Cross-regulation between an alternative splicing activator and a transcription repressor controls neurogenesis.
Neurogenesis requires the concerted action of numerous genes that are regulated at multiple levels. However, how different layers of gene regulation are coordinated to promote neurogenesis is notExpand

Characterization of muscarinic M4 binding sites in rabbit lung, chicken heart, and NG108-15 cells.
We have carried out an extensive pharmacological characterization of muscarinic binding sites in rabbit lung and chicken heart in parallel with M1, M2, and M3 sites, [3H]Pirenzepine, a selectiveExpand

Bradykinin excites rat sympathetic neurons by inhibition of M current through a mechanism involving B2 receptors and Gαq/11
Bradykinin (BK) is a peptide mediator released in inflammation that potently excites sympathetic neurons. We have studied the mechanism of this excitation in dissociated rat sympathetic neurons andExpand

Identification of a family of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor genes.
Complementary DNAs for three different muscarinic acetylcholine receptors were isolated from a rat cerebral cortex library, and the cloned receptors were expressed in mammalian cells. Analysis ofExpand

Two Types of K+ Channel Subunit, Erg1 and KCNQ2/3, Contribute to the M-Like Current in a Mammalian Neuronal Cell
The potassium M current was originally identified in sympathetic ganglion cells, and analogous currents have been reported in some central neurons and also in some neural cell lines. It has recentlyExpand
