The molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia have been under investigation for decades; however, the exact causes of this debilitating neuropsychiatric disorder are still unknown. Previous studies have identified multiple affected neurotransmitter systems, brain regions, and cell types, each making a unique contribution to symptom presentation and(More)
Glycosylation is a post-translational modification that is an essential element in cell signaling and neurodevelopmental pathway regulation. Glycan attachment can influence the tertiary structure and molecular interactions of glycosylated substrates, adding an additional layer of regulatory complexity to functional mechanisms underlying central cell(More)
Changes in the extent of the posttranslational modification glycosylation have been previously reported in several brain regions in schizophrenia. Quality control within the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi, branching of glycans, intracellular trafficking and targeting, protein-protein interactions, and endocytosis are processes regulated by both N-linked(More)
Inhibitory neurotransmission is primarily mediated by γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) activating synaptic GABA type A receptors (GABA(A)R). In schizophrenia, presynaptic GABAergic signaling deficits are among the most replicated findings; however, postsynaptic GABAergic deficits are less well characterized. Our lab has previously demonstrated that although there(More)
