Amplification of complementary DNA by the polymerase chain reaction and anti-peptide antibodies were used to characterize the expression of two alternatively spliced forms of a metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR1 alpha and mGluR1 beta) in the central nervous system of the rat. Polymerase chain reaction analysis showed that mGluR1 alpha was the predominate of the two forms in the cerebellum, diencephalon, mesencephalon, olfactory bulb and brainstem, while mGluR1 beta was the major form… CONTINUE READING
