During early postnatal development, lamina II/III pyramidal cells in rat neocortex are extensively coupled via gap junctions. The factors regulating gap junction permeability, as well as the mechanisms underlying the developmental uncoupling process are not understood. To investigate the influence of protein kinase A-mediated phosphorylation on dye coupling in the developing neocortex, pyramidal cells in slices of rat frontal and prefrontal cortex were injected intracellularly with the tracer… CONTINUE READING
