We investigated the role of maternal exposure to human influenza virus [HI] in C57BL/6 mice on day 9 of pregnancy on the hippocampal expression of SNAP-25 in postnatal day 0 neonates, and compared them to sham-infected pups. The expression of SNAP-25 in infected neonates varied along the septotemporal axis of hippocampus and in various anatomic layers. Quantitative densitometric analysis of specific immunogold silver-enhanced SNAP-25 immunoreactivity [IR] showed increases of 40-347% over… Expand
Defective corticogenesis and reduction in Reelin immunoreactivity in cortex and hippocampus of prenatally infected neonatal mice
TLDR
Prenatally-infected murine brains from postnatal day 0 showed significant reductions in reelin-positive cell counts in layer I of neocortex and other cortical and hippocampal layers when compared to controls and prenatal viral infection caused decreases in neocortical and hippocampusal thickness. Expand
Human influenza viral infection in utero alters glial fibrillary acidic protein immunoreactivity in the developing brains of neonatal mice
TLDR
The results implicate a significant role of prenatal human influenza viral infection on subsequent gliosis, which persists throughout brain development in mice from birth to adolescence. Expand
Prenatal Viral Infection Leads to Pyramidal Cell Atrophy and Macrocephaly in Adulthood: Implications for Genesis of Autism and Schizophrenia
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that prenatal exposure of pregnant mice on Day 9 of pregnancy to a sublethal intranasal administration of influenza virus has both short-term and long-lasting deleterious effects on developing brain structure in the progeny as evident by altered pyramidal and nonpyramidal cell density values. Expand
Maternal infection leads to abnormal gene regulation and brain atrophy in mouse offspring: Implications for genesis of neurodevelopmental disorders
TLDR
It is proposed that maternal infection in mouse provides an heuristic animal model for studying the environmental contributions to genesis of schizophrenia and autism, two important examples of neurodevelopmental disorders. Expand
Prenatal viral infection of mice at E16 causes changes in gene expression in hippocampi of the offspring
TLDR
The authors' results demonstrate altered gene expression and reduced hippocampal volume in the offspring following prenatal viral infection at E16, and MRI revealed a decrease in hippocampusal volume at P35 (adolescence). Expand
Prenatal viral infection in mouse causes differential expression of genes in brains of mouse progeny: A potential animal model for schizophrenia and autism
TLDR
These results show for the first time that prenatal human influenza viral infection on day 9 of pregnancy leads to alterations in a subset of genes in brains of exposed offspring, potentially leading to permanent changes in brain structure and function. Expand
Prenatal immune challenge induces behavioral deficits, neuronal remodeling, and increases brain nitric oxide and zinc levels in the male rat offspring
TLDR
The findings suggest that the behavioral and neural modifications observed in the model could be mediated by the long-lasting alterations in Zn and NO levels in the brain. Expand
Maternal immune activation causes age- and region-specific changes in brain cytokines in offspring throughout development
TLDR
Testing protein levels of cytokines in the blood and three brain regions from offspring of poly(I:C)- and saline-injected mice at five postnatal ages indicates that MIA leads to long-lasting, region-specific changes in brain cytokine changes in offspring that may alter CNS development and behavior. Expand
In-vivo rodent models for the experimental investigation of prenatal immune activation effects in neurodevelopmental brain disorders
TLDR
It is discussed that in-vivo models of prenatal immune activation offer a unique opportunity to establish and evaluate early preventive interventions aiming to reduce the risk of long-lasting brain dysfunctions following prenatal exposure to infection. Expand
Activation of the Maternal Immune System During Pregnancy Alters Behavioral Development of Rhesus Monkey Offspring
TLDR
In this rhesus monkey model, MIA yields offspring with abnormal repetitive behaviors, communication, and social interactions resembling those in both autism and schizophrenia, which extended the findings in rodent MIA models to more human-like behaviors. Expand

Human influenza viral infection in utero increases nNOS expression in hippocampi of neonatal mice
TLDR
The changes in levels of nNOS expression in hippocampi of neonates born to mothers exposed to HI virus during the second trimester of pregnancy may reflect the potential for glutamatergic excitotoxicity via activation of NMDA receptors in the developing brains of these neonatal mice. Expand
Lesions of hippocampal circuitry define synaptosomal-associated protein-25 (SNAP-25) as a novel presynaptic marker
TLDR
Examination of SNAP-25 immunoreactivity and mRNA expression may provide a useful marker of major hippocampal pathways and of axonal plasticity in neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and temporal lobe epilepsy. Expand
Developmental and plasticity‐related differential expression of two SNAP‐25 isoforms in the rat brain
TLDR
The relationship between the expression pattern of two recently identified isoforms of the 25‐kD synaptosomal‐associated protein (SNAP‐25a and SNAP‐25b) and the morphological changes inherent to neuronal plasticity during development and kainate‐induced neurotoxic damage of the hippocampal CA3‐CA4 regions is studied. Expand
Organization of the embryonic and early postnatal murine hippocampus. I. Immunocytochemical characterization of neuronal populations in the subplate and marginal zone
TLDR
At E15–E19, SMI81‐immunoreactive fibers were observed in the developing white matter, subplate and outer marginal zone, which suggests that these layers are sites of early synaptogenesis. Expand
Does prenatal exposure to influenza in mice induce pyramidal cell disarray in the dorsal hippocampus?
TLDR
Microscopic examination of the CA1-CA2 junctional areas in the offspring of mice exposed to influenza failed to demonstrate excess pyramidal cell disarray when compared with influenza-free, age matched controls, and analyses of the data by sex and severity of maternal infection failed to reveal any significant effects. Expand
Inhibition of axonal growth by SNAP-25 antisense oligonucleotides in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
It is reported here that SNAP-25 is expressed in axonal growth cones during late stages of elongation and that selective inhibition of SNAP- 25 expression prevents neurite elongation by rat cortical neurons and PC-12 cells in vitro and by amacrine cells of the developing chick retina in vivo.

Measles virus-induced hippocampal neurodegeneration in the mouse: A novel, subacute model for testing neuroprotective agents
TLDR
The data suggest that the concentration of an excitotoxic factor in the mouse brain increases after virus inoculation, reaching toxic levels by days 4-5 p.i., making this novel 'subacute' mouse model of neurodegeneration an attractive tool for mechanistic and interventional studies in exciteotoxicity research.

Rab3 Proteins and SNAP‐25, Essential Components of the Exocytosis Machinery in Conventional Synapses, are Absent from Ribbon Synapses of the Mouse Retina
TLDR
In the retina, rab3A immunoreactivity was confined to the inner and outer plexiform layers, and observations suggest different mechanisms of transmitter exocytosis in conventional and ribbon terminals. Expand
The identification of a novel synaptosomal-associated protein, SNAP-25, differentially expressed by neuronal subpopulations
TLDR
Light and electron microscopic immunocytochemistry indicated that SNAP-25 is located within the presynaptic terminals of hippocampal mossy fibers and the inner molecular layer of the dentate gyrus, suggesting that Snapchat may play an important role in the synaptic function of specific neuronal systems. Expand
Cingulate cortex synaptic terminal proteins and neural cell adhesion molecule in schizophrenia
TLDR
Elevated syntaxin immunoreactivity is consistent with increased glutamatergic afferents to the cingulate cortex in schizophrenia, and combined with the neural cell adhesion molecule to synaptophysin ratio results suggests that synaptic function in this region in schizophrenia may be abnormal.
