Wnt proteins are emerging key regulators of the plasticity and functions of adult brains. However, the mechanisms by which the expression of Wnt proteins is regulated in neurons are unclear. Using cortical primary cultures, we show here that activation of NMDA receptors (NMDARs) induces rapid Wnt5a protein synthesis and secretion. This NMDAR-regulated Wnt5a(More)
Our long term goal is to determine the role that pMGA hemagglutinins play in Mycoplasma gallisepticum F-strain (termed as F-strain for brevity) persistence in poultry. To do this however, we first had to identify the pMGA genes expressed by an isolate of the F-strain. To identify F-strain pMGA genes, a genomic library was constructed in bacteriophage lambda(More)
