Site‐specific and developmental expression of pannexin1 in the mouse nervous system
Until recently, members of the connexin gene family were believed to comprise the sole molecular component forming gap junction channels in vertebrates. The recent discovery of the pannexin geneExpand

Sensory Impairments and Delayed Regeneration of Sensory Axons in Interleukin-6-Deficient Mice
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a multifunctional cytokine mediating inflammatory or immune reactions. Here we investigated the possible role of IL-6 in the intact or lesioned peripheral nervous system usingExpand

Parvalbumin expression in visual cortical interneurons depends on neuronal activity and TrkB ligands during an Early period of postnatal development.
The differentiation of cortical interneurons is controlled by environmental factors. Here, we describe the role of activity and neurotrophins in regulating parvalbumin (PARV) expression usingExpand

Cellular and molecular characterization of a brain-enriched protein tyrosine phosphatase
Regional variations in the expression of a striatal enriched protein tyrosine phosphatase called STEP were studied in the adult rat brain by a combination of immunocytochemistry, lesion studies,Expand

Transgenic Activation of Ras in Neurons Promotes Hypertrophy and Protects from Lesion-Induced Degeneration
Ras is a universal eukaryotic intracellular protein integrating extracellular signals from multiple receptor types. To investigate its role in the adult central nervous system, constitutivelyExpand

Accelerated dendritic development of rat cortical pyramidal cells and interneurons after biolistic transfection with BDNF and NT4/5
Neurotrophins are candidate molecules for regulating dendritogenesis. We report here on dendritic growth of rat visual cortex pyramidal and interneurons overexpressing `brain-derived neurotrophicExpand

Neurotransmitter profile of saccadic omnipause neurons in nucleus raphe interpositus
Saccadic omnipause neurons (OPNs) are essential for the generation of saccadic eye movements. In primates OPNs are located near the midline within the nucleus raphe interpositus (rip). In the presentExpand

  • 1 April 1999
The mammalian visual cortex contains morphologically diverse populations of interneurons whose neurochemical properties are believed to be regulated by neurotrophic factors. This requires theExpand

Neuronal activity and neurotrophic factors regulate GAD‐65/67 mRNA and protein expression in organotypic cultures of rat visual cortex
Environmental factors are known to regulate the molecular differentiation of neocortical interneurons. Their class‐defining transmitter synthetic enzymes are the glutamic acid decarboxylases (GAD);Expand
