An Atriplex nummularia L. cDNA probe encoding the partial sequence of an isoform of the plasma-membrane H(+)-ATPase was isolated, and used to characterize the NaCl regulation of mRNA accumulation in cultured cells of this halophyte. The peptide (477 amino acids) translated from the open reading frame has the highest sequence homology to the Nicotiana(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the relationship among amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta)-induced neurotoxicity, serum-inducible kinase (SNK)-spine-associated Rap guanosine triphosphatase activating protein (SPAR) pathway and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR), and to explore the mechanism of the protective effect of spleen-yin nourishing recipe (Zibu Piyin Recipe,(More)
Spine-associated Rap guanosine triphosphatase-activating protein (SPAR) is an important regulator of activity-dependent remodeling of synapses. It is also critically involved in both mature dendritic spine formation and the maintenance of spine maturity. Glutamate is a major neurotransmitter of the brain, and is involved in all aspects of cognitive(More)
