Carbon monoxide (CO), produced in the body by the enzyme heme oxygenase (HO), has been suggested as a retrograde synaptic messenger with a prominent role in the long-term potentiation (LTP) of certain areas of the brain. LTP of sympathetic ganglia is 5-HT(3) receptor-dependent and has been shown to require nitric oxide for the maintenance, but not for the(More)
Long-term depression (LTD) is a use-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy widely recognized as a form of synaptic plasticity related to cognitive function in the central nervous system. Such response has previously not been demonstrated in autonomic ganglia. In the isolated superior cervical ganglion (SCG) of the rat (superfused with Locke solution(More)
Ataxia telangiectasia (AT) is a human hereditary syndrome whose underlying gene product, ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM) protein kinase, is involved in multiple intracellular signaling pathways. We demonstrated previously that AT fibroblasts are defective in intracellular Ca2+ mobilization in response to both stress-inducing and mitogenic stimuli. To(More)
