Neurogenesis continues to occur in the adult hippocampus, although many of the newborn cells degenerate 1-2 weeks after birth. The number and survival of newborn cells are regulated by a variety of environmental stimuli, but very little is known about the intracellular signal transduction pathways that control adult neurogenesis. In the present study, we(More)
Laminar organization is a fundamental cytoarchitecture in mammalian CNS and a striking feature of the neocortex. ER81, a transcription factor, has recently been utilized as a marker of cells in the layer 5 of the neocortex. We further pursued the distribution of ER81 to investigate the identity of the ER81-expressing cells in the brain. Er81 transcript was(More)
The effects of i.c.v. administration of prolactin-releasing peptide on neurons in the paraventricular nucleus of rats and plasma corticosterone levels were examined by measuring changes in Fos-like immunoreactivity, c-fos mRNA using in situ hybridization histochemistry, and plasma corticosterone using a specific radioimmunoassay. Approximately 80% of(More)
Oligosaccharides of glycoproteins expressed on the cell surface play important roles in cell-cell interactions, particularly sialylated N-glycans having a negative charge, which interact with sialic acid-binding immunoglobulin-like lectins (siglecs). The entire structure of sialylated N-glycans expressed in the mouse brain, particularly the linkage type of(More)
