Expression of the calmodulin-dependent protein phosphatase, calcineurin, in rat brain: developmental patterns and the role of nigrostriatal innervation.

The distribution of neurons expressing the calmodulin-dependent protein phosphatase, calcineurin (CN) was characterized in developing and adult rat brain using a combination of immunocytochemical, immunoblot and in situ hybridization approaches. Immunoblot analysis revealed a strong increase postnatally in CN protein expression. Four differently-charged… CONTINUE READING
