A glia-derived acetylcholine-binding protein that modulates synaptic transmission
TLDR
A molecular and cellular mechanism by which glial cells release AChBP in the synaptic cleft is described, and a model for how they actively regulate cholinergic transmission between neurons in the central nervous system is proposed.
Molecular cloning and characterization of an invertebrate homologue of a neuropeptide Y receptor
TLDR
The cloning of a neuropeptide Y‐receptor from the brain of the snail Lymnaea stagnalis is described, and an active peptide was purified to homogeneity, analysed by mass spectrometry and amino acid sequence determination, and turned out to be a LymNAea homologue of neuropeptic Y.
Functional Implications of Neurotransmitter Expression during Axonal Regeneration: Serotonin, But Not Peptides, Auto-Regulate Axon Growth of an Identified Central Neuron
TLDR
The data suggest that auto-released serotonin is inhibitory to CGC neurite outgrowth in vitro, and during regeneration in vivo, serotonin release might fine-tune axon guidance and branching by inducing local collapse responses in extending neurites.
Cloning, Characterization, and Expression of a G-Protein-Coupled Receptor from Lymnaea stagnalis and Identification of a Leucokinin-Like Peptide, PSFHSWSamide, as Its Endogenous Ligand
TLDR
This Lymnaeareceptor, PSFHSWSamide, is the first example of a leucokinin-like neuropeptide receptor, representing a new subfamily of G-protein-coupled neuropePTide receptors.
Synthesis and functional integration of a neurotransmitter receptor in isolated invertebrate axons.
TLDR
This study provides the first direct evidence that isolated axons (in the absence of the soma) can intrinsically synthesize and functionally integrate a membrane-bound receptor protein from an axonally injected mRNA.
