To obtain insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying the metabolism and functions of endogenous d-serine, we have explored d-serine-regulated transcripts in the neocortex of the infant rat treated with acute d-serine administration by using an RNA fingerprinting technique. Cloning and sequence analysis of the corresponding cDNAs to the identified transcripts have revealed that the dsr-1 (d-serine responsive transcript-1) mRNA is presumed to contain a novel sequence at the 5'-region, while… CONTINUE READING
