Retinoids, a family of molecules that is derived from vitamin A, are involved in a complex signaling pathway that regulates gene expression and controls neuronal differentiation in the central nervous system. The physiological actions of retinoids are mainly mediated by retinoic acid receptors. Here we describe the distribution of retinoic acid receptor α(More)
Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs), the members of the epithelial sodium channel/degenerin (ENaC/DEG) superfamily, are proton-gated voltage-insensitive cation channels. Six ASIC subunits have been identified and characterized in the mammalian nervous system so far. Of these subunits, ASIC3 has been shown to be predominantly expressed in the peripheral(More)
