The influx of calcium into the postsynaptic neuron is likely to be an important event in memory formation. Among the mechanisms that nerve cells may use to alter the time course or size of a spike of intracellular calcium are cytosolic calcium binding or "buffering" proteins. To consider the role in memory formation of one of these proteins, calbindin D28K,(More)
The contribution of the cytosolic calcium binding protein calbindin D(28K) (CaBP) to glutamatergic neurotransmission and synaptic plasticity was investigated in hippocampal CA1 area of wild-type and antisense transgenic CaBP-deficient mice, with the use of extracellular recordings in the ex vivo slice preparation. The amplitude of non-N-methyl-D-aspartate(More)
Cellular calcium handling was examined in brain slices from transgenic antisense mice with a regional deficiency in the neuronal calcium binding protein calbindin D28k and from their non transgenic wild type litter mate controls. Depolarization of brain slices with NMDA or potassium produced a prolonged elevation of neuronal calcium signal in neurons in(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare a novel bone marrow device with the standard marrow needle in a prospective, randomized study in a teaching hospital employing hematologists-in-training. The new device, the OnControl Bone Marrow (OBM) Biopsy System, utilizes a battery-powered drill to insert the needle. Fifty-four bone marrows (27 standard and 27(More)
Population studies showed that patients with JAK2 V617F mutation had increased mortality, and increased risk of any cancer, hematologic cancer, and myeloproliferative disease. A 68-year-old Asian male with JAK2 V617F mutation developed four different hematologic and non-hematologic neoplastic processes. In 2009, he was diagnosed with stage IA lung(More)
A BamHI-HindIII restriction fragment containing the 5'-terminal portion of the gene encoding chicken Calbindin D28K was sequenced and used as a probe in Northern-blot hybridizations to RNA extracted from the brain and intestine of chickens at various stages of development. In both tissues Calbindin D28K mRNA consists of a family of three species, which(More)
