Regulated trafficking of AMPA receptors to cell surface and to synapses is an important determinant of neuronal excitability. In the present study, we have addressed the role of agonist binding and desensitization in the early trafficking of glutamate receptor-D (GluR-D) AMPA receptors. Analysis of point-mutated GluR-D receptors, via electrophysiology and(More)
Diabetic nephropathy is a complication of diabetes and a major cause of end-stage renal disease. To characterize the early pathophysiological mechanisms leading to glomerular podocyte injury in diabetic nephropathy, we performed quantitative proteomic profiling of glomeruli isolated from rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes and controls.(More)
Hereditary gelsolin amyloidosis (HGA) is a dominantly inherited systemic disease reported worldwide. HGA is characterized by ophthalmological, neurological, and dermatological manifestations. AGel amyloid accumulates at basal lamina of epithelial and muscle cells, thus amyloid angiopathy is encountered in nearly every organ. HGA patients have(More)
