In vitro studies suggest that the intracellular C terminus of Neuroligin1 (NL1) could play a central role in the maturation of excitatory synapses. However, it is unknown how this activity affects synapses in vivo, and whether it may impact the development of complex behaviors. To determine how NL1 influences the state of glutamatergic synapses in vivo, we(More)
PURPOSE The authors phenotypically compared epithelial and nonepithelial components of human corneal and conjunctival microenvironments using a panel of monoclonal antibody reagents that included markers of epithelial cell maturation, markers of mesodermal-derived fibrous tissue and vessels, markers of specific keratins, and markers of major(More)
Some antibodies to ligands of a receptor will have combining sites that structurally resemble the receptor's binding site for that ligand. The network hypothesis predicts that anti-idiotypic antibodies to these anti-ligand antibodies will also bind to the receptor. We pursued these hypotheses in the well-defined ligand-receptor system,(More)
