Whole-cell or cell-attached analysis was carried out in dopamine (DA) D2 receptor (D2R) knock-out (KO) mice to elucidate the function of this receptor in the regulation of GABAergic synaptic transmission onto striatal cholinergic interneurons as well as their spontaneous firing. In slice preparation obtained from wild-type mice, evoked GABAergic inhibitory(More)
Gene abnormalities in RBFOX1, encoding an mRNA-splicing factor, have been shown to cause autism spectrum disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Since pathophysiological significance of the dominant nuclear isoform in neurons, RBFOX1-isoform1 (iso1), remains to be elucidated, we performed comprehensive analyses of Rbfox1-iso1 during mouse(More)
Modulatory roles of serotonin (5-HT) in GABAergic transmission onto basal forebrain cholinergic neurons were investigated, using whole-cell patch-clamp technique in the rat brain slices. GABAA receptor-mediated inhibitory postsynaptic currents (IPSCs) were evoked by focal stimulation. Bath application of 5-HT (0.1-300 μm) reversibly suppressed the amplitude(More)
