The distribution of alpha 7 messenger RNA expression was characterized in developing rat cortex and thalamus. Northern blot analysis of neonatal and adult cortex revealed a single messenger RNA transcript of 5.7 kb. Using in situ hybridization with both full length and short 35S-labeled alpha 7 riboprobes, a distinct transient expression of messenger RNA within sensory cortex and thalamus, during early postnatal development, was observed. alpha 7 transcripts were expressed in low levels as… CONTINUE READING
