Histamine H2 receptors transfected in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are time- and dose-dependently upregulated upon exposure to the H2 antagonists cimetidine and ranitidine. This effect appears to be H2 receptor-mediated as no change in receptor density was observed after H1 or H3 antagonist treatment or after incubation with the structural analogue of(More)
Injections of inositol trisphosphate (IP3) or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) into the presynaptic neurone of an identified cholinergic synapse in the buccal ganglion of Aplysia californica increased the amplitude of the inhibitory postsynaptic current evoked by a presynaptic action potential. This suggests that Ca2+ release from various(More)
Pretreatment of Chinese hamster ovary cells expressing the histamine H2 receptor (CHOrH2 cells) with histamine resulted in a time-dependent (t1/2 approximately 7 h) and dose-dependent (EC50=18 nM) H2 receptor down-regulation measured as [125I]iodoaminopotentidine binding (44+/-10% down-regulation). Pretreatment of CHOrH2 cells with cholera toxin or(More)
The LIM homeodomain transcription factor 1b (Lmx1b) is a key factor in the specification of the serotonergic neurotransmitter phenotype. Here, we explored the capacity of Lmx1b to direct differentiation of mouse embryonic stem (mES) cells into serotonergic neurons. mES cells stably expressing human Lmx1b were generated by lentiviral vector infection. Clones(More)
In several neuronal preparations, the ryanodine-sensitive calcium store was reported to participate in the generation of slow afterhyperpolarization currents (IsAHP) involved in spike frequency adaptation. We show that calcium release from the ryanodine-sensitive calcium store is a major determinant of the triggering of IsAHP in mouse CA1 pyramidal neurons.(More)
