The cellular localization and development of neuronal intranuclear inclusions (NIIs) in cortex and striatum of R6/2 HD transgenic mice were studied to ascertain the relationship of NIIs to symptom formation in these mice and gain clues regarding the possible relationship of NII formation to neuropathology in Huntington's disease (HD). All NIIs observed in(More)
The localization of D1 and D2 dopamine receptors to striatal projection neuron types has been controversial, with some data favoring segregation of D1 to direct pathway neurons (substance P-containing) and D2 to indirect pathway neurons (enkephalinergic), and others reporting significant colocalization of D1 and D2 on individual projection neuron types. In(More)
The R6/2 mouse possesses mutant exon 1 of human Hdh, and R6/2 mice with 150 CAG repeats show neurological abnormalities by 10 weeks and die by 15 weeks. Few brain abnormalities, however, are evident at death, other than widespread ubiquitinated neuronal intranuclear inclusions (NIIs). We constructed R6/2t+/t- <--> wildtype (WT) chimeric mice to prolong(More)
Corticostriatal and thalamostriatal projections utilize glutamate as their neurotransmitter. Their influence on striatum is mediated, in part, by ionotropic AMPA-type glutamate receptors, which are heteromers composed of GluR1-4 subunits. While the cellular localization of AMPA-type subunits in the basal ganglia has been well characterized in rodents, the(More)
