Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is present in climbing and mossy fibers and both have a distinct pattern of distribution in the adult cerebellar cortex. The intent of this developmental study is to determine when the lobular pattern of CRF distribution emerges, and to analyze the morphogenesis of CRF immunoreactive climbing and mossy fibers in(More)
Numerous studies have shown in the adult nervous system that mRNA expression can be regulated by neuronal activity. To examine the effect of activity during embryogenesis, the ontogeny of proenkephalin mRNA expression and expression following activity blockade was investigated during development of chick spinal cord. A cDNA fragment (ca. 0.5 kb) coding for(More)
The purpose of the present study is to determine the distribution of CRF containing afferents, and correlate these findings with the distribution of CRF binding sites and the neuronal localization of mRNA for the CRF1 receptor in the cerebellum of a single species, the mouse. Corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) has been localized within climbing fibers and(More)
