DM20 mRNA splice product of the myelin proteolipid protein gene is expressed in the murine heart
The results indicate that the PLP gene is expressed in tissues other than brain and support the concept that products of thePLP gene may have some biological role other than as structural components of myelin. Expand
Hippocampal stimulation produces neuronal death in the immature brain
The hippocampal damage produced by perforant path stimulation is associated with the immediate loss of physiological inhibition suggesting important modification of excitatory control in an extremely epileptogenic region of the brain. Expand
Presence of α‐melanocyte‐stimulating hormone‐like immunoreactivity in the innervation of amphibian skeletal muscle
The presence and distribution of α‐MSH‐like immunoreactivity (α‐MSHLI) in the innervation of the cutaneous pectoris muscle from bullfrog tadpoles and postmetamorphic froglets, and adult frogs is determined. Expand
Immediate early gene activity‐regulated cytoskeletal‐associated protein regulates estradiol‐induced lordosis behavior in female rats
It is demonstrated that Arc expression in the hypothalamus might influence future sexual receptivity and provides evidence of learning in the arcuate nucleus, as well as the loss of Arc results in unrestrainedSexual receptivity. Expand
Overexpression of hippocampal Ca2+/calmodulin‐dependent protein kinase II improves spatial memory
Data support a role for αCaMKII in spatial or explicit memory storage and the advantages of viral vectors for manipulating target proteins expression compared with genetically modified mouse models are discussed. Expand
