Acetylcholine transport, storage, and release.
ACh is released from cholinergic nerve terminals under both resting and stimulated conditions. Stimulated release is mediated by exocytosis of synaptic vesicle contents. The structure and function ofExpand

Cysteine string proteins: a potential link between synaptic vesicles and presynaptic Ca2+ channels.
Presynaptic calcium channels are key regulators of neurotransmitter release. Oocyte expression studies suggest that cysteine string proteins are essential subunits or modulators of these channels.Expand

Changes in the elastic properties of cholinergic synaptic vesicles as measured by atomic force microscopy.
Cholinergic synaptic vesicles from Torpedo californica have been probed with the atomic force microscope in aqueous buffers to map and measure their elastic properties. Elastic properties were mappedExpand

Developmental Changes in the Transmitter Properties of Sympathetic Neurons That Innervate the Periosteum
During the development of sweat gland innervation, interactions with the target tissue induce a change from noradrenergic to cholinergic and peptidergic properties. To determine whether the change inExpand

Properties of biomolecules measured from atomic force microscope images: a review.
AFM images can be used to obtain quantitative or qualitative information about the properties of biomaterials. Examples presented here are: (1) Persistence length measurements of moving andExpand

Differential regulation of epaxial and hypaxial muscle development by paraxis.
In vertebrates, skeletal muscle is derived from progenitor cell populations located in the epithelial dermomyotome compartment of the each somite. These cells become committed to the myogenic lineageExpand

Inhibition of ATP phosphoribosyltransferase by AMP and ADP in the absence and presence of histidine.
Abstract AMP and ADP are linear competitive inhibitors of ATP phosphoribosyltransferase with respect to both substrates in the histidine biosynthetic direction reaction. This apparent contradictionExpand

Vesicular acetylcholine transporter defect underlies devastating congenital myasthenia syndrome
Objective: To identify the genetic basis of a recessive congenital neurologic syndrome characterized by severe hypotonia, arthrogryposis, and respiratory failure. Methods: Identification of theExpand

The anterior/posterior polarity of somites is disrupted in paraxis-deficient mice.
Establishing the anterior/posterior (A/P) boundary of individual somites is important for setting up the segmental body plan of all vertebrates. Resegmentation of adjacent sclerotomes to form theExpand
