Voluntary exercise induces anxiety‐like behavior in adult C57BL/6J mice correlating with hippocampal neurogenesis
Several studies investigated the effect of physical exercise on emotional behaviors in rodents; resulting findings however remain controversial. Despite the accepted notion that voluntary exerciseExpand

Patch clamp measurements onXenopus laevis oocytes: currents through endogenous channels and implanted acetylcholine receptor and sodium channels
Abstract1.Functional acetylcholine receptor (AChR) and sodium channels were expressed in the membrane ofXenopus laevis oocytes following injection with poly(A)+-mRNA extracted from denervated rat legExpand

Imprinting of acetylcholine receptor messenger RNA accumulation in mammalian neuromuscular synapses
IN mammalian muscle, the subunit composition of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) and the distribution of AChRs along the fibre are developmentally regulated. In fetal muscle, AChRs areExpand

Induction by agrin of ectopic and functional postsynaptic-like membrane in innervated muscle.
Two factors secreted from the nerve terminal, agrin and neuregulin, have been postulated to induce localization of the acetylcholine receptors (AChRs) to the subsynaptic membrane in skeletal muscleExpand

Differential regulation of MyoD and myogenin mRNA levels by nerve induced muscle activity
The levels of mRNAs coding for the myogenic factors MyoD and myogenin were measured during synapse formulation in developing muscle and in adult muscle, after denervation and reinnervation and afterExpand

Neural factors regulate AChR subunit mRNAs at rat neuromuscular synapses
To elucidate the nature of signals that control the level and spatial distribution of mRNAs encoding acetylcholine receptor (AChR), alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta- and epsilon-subunits in muscle fibersExpand

Argiotoxin detects molecular differences in AMPA receptor channels
Argiotoxin, a component of the spider venom from Argiope lobata, blocks AMPA receptor channels expressed in homomeric and heteromeric configuration in Xenopus oocytes. Argiotoxin acts as an openExpand

Synapse disassembly and formation of new synapses in postnatal muscle upon conditional inactivation of MuSK
The muscle-specific-kinase MuSK is required for the formation of acetylcholine receptor clusters during embryonic development, but its physiological role in adult muscle is not known. We used theExpand

Fiber Types of the Intrinsic Whisker Muscle and Whisking Behavior
Some rodent species show rhythmic bouts of vibrissal protractions and retractions, referred to as whisking, that are among the fastest movements performed by mammals. To better understand theExpand
