Immediate early genes including c-fos are selectively induced in cells of the hamster suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) by nocturnal light stimulation, suggesting that the Fos protein may play a role in the photic entrainment of circadian rhythms. To examine the physiological regulation of the induction of c-fos in the SCN, we studied the effects of antagonists of excitatory amino acids (EAA) receptors on photic induction of Fos-like immunoreactivity (Fos-lir) in the hamster SCN. We also examined… CONTINUE READING
