Regulation of transmitter release by synapsin II in mouse motor terminals
We investigated quantal release and ultrastructure in the neuromuscular junctions of synapsin II knockout (Syn II KO) mice. Synaptic responses were recorded focally from the diaphragm synapses duringExpand

GABAergic and glycinergic inhibition modulate monaural auditory response properties in the avian superior olivary nucleus.
The superior olivary nucleus (SON) is the primary source of inhibition in the avian auditory brainstem. While much is known about the role of inhibition at the SON's target nuclei, little is knownExpand

Coparent or second-parent adoption by same-sex parents.
Children who are born to or adopted by 1 member of a same-sex couple deserve the security of 2 legally recognized parents. Therefore, the American Academy of Pediatrics supports legislative and legalExpand

Cooperative regulation of neurotransmitter release by Rab3a and synapsin II
To understand how the presynaptic proteins synapsin and Rab3a may interact in the regulation of the synaptic vesicle cycle and the release process, we derived a double knockout (DKO) mouse lackingExpand

Rab3a-mediated vesicle recruitment regulates short-term plasticity at the mouse diaphragm synapse
Rab3a is a small GTP-binding protein associated with presynaptic vesicles. We have measured the releasable pool in the neuromuscular junction of Rab3a(-) mice by recordings of the asynchronousExpand

Tonotopic organization of the superior olivary nucleus in the chicken auditory brainstem
Topographic maps are salient features of neuronal organization in sensory systems. Inhibitory components of neuronal circuitry are often embedded within this organization, making them difficult toExpand

Rab3a deletion reduces vesicle docking and transmitter release at the mouse diaphragm synapse
Rab3a is a small GTP binding protein associated with presynaptic vesicles that is thought to regulate vesicle targeting to active zones. Although this rab3a function implies that vesicle docking andExpand

Committee on Psychosocial Aspects of Child and Family Health AMERICAN PAIN SOCIETY Task Force on Pain in Infants , Children , and Adolescents The Assessment and Management of Acute Pain in Infants ,
Acute pain is one of the most common adverse stimuli experienced by children, occurring as a result of injury, illness, and necessary medical procedures. It is associated with increased anxiety,Expand

Synapsin II and calcium regulate vesicle docking and the cross‐talk between vesicle pools at the mouse motor terminals
The synapsins, an abundant and highly conserved family of proteins that associate with synaptic vesicles, have been implicated in regulating the synaptic vesicle cycle. However, it has not beenExpand

Synapsin I accelerates the kinetics of neurotransmitter release in mouse motor terminals
Synapsins are an abundant and highly conserved family of phosphoproteins associated with synaptic vesicles. In its dephosphorylated form, synapsin binds to synaptic vesicles and triggers actinExpand
