The GABAB receptor interacts directly with the related transcription factors CREB2 and ATFx.
gamma-Aminobutyric acid type B (GABA(B)) receptors mediate the metabotropic actions of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. These seven-transmembrane receptors are known to signal primarily throughExpand
Metabotropic Glutamate 1α and Adenosine A1 Receptors Assemble into Functionally Interacting Complexes*
Recently, evidence has emerged that seven transmembrane G protein-coupled receptors may be present as homo- and heteromers in the plasma membrane. Here we describe a new molecular and functionalExpand
Homer-1c/Vesl-1L Modulates the Cell Surface Targeting of Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor Type 1α: Evidence for an Anchoring Function
Homer-1c/Vesl-1L is a 48-kDa protein that forms part of a family of conserved Homer-related proteins that interact with the C-termini of the metabotropic glutamate receptors mGluR1alpha and mGluR5.Expand
Molecular Determinants of Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 1B Trafficking
The metabotropic glutamate receptor mGluR1 undergoes alternative splicing to generate isoforms differing in C-terminal sequence. The mechanism by which these isoforms give different functionalExpand
Mouse brain and muscle tissues constitutively express high levels of Homer proteins.
In order to characterize expression of Homers in mouse brain and peripheral tissues we have developed a coupled reverse transcription (RT)-PCR/restriction digestion approach. This has allowed us toExpand
Characterization of cDNAs of the human pregnancy-specific beta 1-glycoprotein family, a new subfamily of the immunoglobulin gene superfamily.
Three highly homologous cDNAs encoding human pregnancy-specific beta 1-glycoprotein (SP1) were isolated from a human placental cDNA library. These cDNAs share greater than 90% nucleotide homology inExpand
Pregnancy‐Specific Glycoprotein Gene Expression in Recurrent Aborters: A Potential Correlation to Interleukin‐10 Expression
PROBLEM: The expression of the pregnancy‐specific glycoprotein (PSG) genes in the uterine endometrium of women experiencing recurrent first‐trimester abortions, and potential correlations to cytokineExpand
Comparative studies of selenium-75 (selenite and selenomethionine) absorption from various milk diets in suckling rats.
Selenium (Se) absorption was studied in human milk, bovine milk and infant formula (Similac) using suckling rats as a model. The effect of age on Se absorption from the three milk diets extrinsicallyExpand
Molecular cloning and characterization of a novel gene upregulated early during postnatal rat lung development.
Alveoli form, in part, by subdivision (septation) of saccules constituting the gas exchange region of the immature lung. Rat lungs septate from postnatal day 4 through 14 but alveoli in male ratsExpand

The placenta plays a key role in the nutrition of the fetus. It mediates the active transport of nutrients and metabolic wastes across the barrier separating maternal and fetal compartments, as wellExpand
