To demonstrate a dependence of spinal cord motoneurons on the communication with their targets, the expression of immediate early gene c-fos and neurotrophin genes in the lumbar (L3-L6) spinal cord neurons was examined in Sprague-Dawley rats (male > or = 9-weeks-old) with unilateral sciatic nerve transection. Using in situ hybridization, we detected the(More)
BACKGROUND Synapsin II encodes a neuron-specific phosphoprotein that selectively binds to small synaptic vesicles in the presynaptic nerve terminal. The expressions of messenger ribonucleic acid and protein of synapsin II have been reported to be significantly reduced in the brains of schizophrenia patients. The synapsin II gene is located on 3p25, a region(More)
