Generation of glutamatergic neurons from postnatal and adult subventricular zone with pyramidal-like morphology.
TLDR
SVZ can be a source of glutamatergic cortical neurons when submitted to proper environmental cues, and results indicate that SVZ cells are able to produce glutamaters if confronted with the embryonic cortical ventricular zone environment.
Epigenetic control of neurotransmitter expression in olfactory bulb interneurons
GABAergic signalling in a neurogenic niche of the turtle spinal cord
TLDR
GABA signals on progenitors and immature neurones within a neurogenic niche around the central canal of the turtle spinal cord imply that GABAergic signalling around the CC shares fundamental properties with those in the embryo and adult neurogenic niches in the brain.
GABA in developing rat skeletal muscle and motor neurons
TLDR
The hypothesis that GABA and GAD, which are detectable in adult neuromuscular junctions, have neuronal origin is supported, and the mechanism of GABA production and its role in developing muscle tissue need further clarification.
Aldehyde dehydrogenase 1a1 mediates a GABA synthesis pathway in midbrain dopaminergic neurons
TLDR
Show that GABA co-release in dopamine neurons does not use the conventional GABA-synthesizing enzymes, glutamate decarboxylases GAD65 and GAD67, and an evolutionarily conserved GABA synthesis pathway mediated by aldehyde dehydrogenase 1a1 (ALDH1a1).
Critical Role of Astrocytic Polyamine and GABA Metabolism in Epileptogenesis
TLDR
It is shown that SPM is a gliotransmitter that is released from astrocytes and significantly contributes to network excitation and may serve for a more effective antiepileptic drug development in the future.
A neuroprotective role for polyamines in a Xenopus tadpole model of epilepsy
TLDR
A developmental seizure model in which Xenopus laevis tadpoles were exposed to pentylenetetrazole, a known convulsant, found that seizure onset times were delayed in response to a second PTZ exposure 4 h later, a result of activity-dependent increases in synthesis of putrescine, the simplest polyamine.
GABA Not Only a Neurotransmitter: Osmotic Regulation by GABAAR Signaling
TLDR
Evidence that the osmotic regulation exerted by GABA may contribute to brain water homeostasis in physiological and in pathological conditions causing brain edema, in which the GABAergic transmission is often altered is discussed.
GABAA Receptor and Glycine Receptor Activation by Paracrine/Autocrine Release of Endogenous Agonists: More Than a Simple Communication Pathway
TLDR
This review summarizes recent knowledge about the non-synaptic activation of GABAARs and GlyRs, both in developing and adult CNS, and discusses the neuronal versus non-neuronal origin of the paracrine release of GABAar and GlyR agonists.
Astrocytes as GABA-ergic and GABA-ceptive Cells
TLDR
Several potential pathways for astrocytes to accumulate GABA are proposed and the evidence for functional expression of GABA receptors in astroCytes is discussed, raising more questions about the origin of GABA, whether it is synthesized or taken up, and about the role ofAstrocytic GABA and GABA receptors.

GABA Depolarizes Neuronal Progenitors of the Postnatal Subventricular Zone Via GABAA Receptor Activation
TLDR
This study demonstrates that neuronal progenitors of the SVZ/RMS contain GABA and are depolarized by GABA, which may constitute the basis for a paracrine signal among neurons to dynamically regulate their proliferation and/or migration.
GABAergic phenotypic differentiation of a subpopulation of subventricular derived migrating progenitors
TLDR
Data show the early differentiation of migrating SVZ‐derived progenitors into a GAD65–GFP‐positive phenotype, which could represent a restricted lineage giving rise to G AD65‐positive GABAergic olfactory bulb interneurons.
GABA Release and Uptake Regulate Neuronal Precursor Migration in the Postnatal Subventricular Zone
TLDR
Assessment of cell migration in acute sagittal brain slices and immunohistochemistry found that astrocyte-like cells express the high-affinity GABA transporter subtype GAT4 on processes ensheathing neuronal precursors that contain GABA, indicating that astrobiotic cells create a microenvironment in which their uniquely positioned GABA transporters control the degree of GABAAR activation and the migration of neurons.
Differentiation of the dopaminergic phenotype in the olfactory system of neonatal and adult mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that DA phenotypic differentiation in neonates begins with low‐level transcription in migrating progenitors in the RMS and culminates with activity‐dependent protein expression in periglomerular cells innervated by olfactory receptor cells.
Nonsynaptic GABA signaling in postnatal subventricular zone controls proliferation of GFAP-expressing progenitors
TLDR
It is found that GABAA receptors are tonically activated in GFAP-expressing cells, consistent with the presence of spontaneous depolarizations in neuroblasts that are sufficient to induce GABA release, and this data demonstrate the existence of nonsynaptic GABAergic signaling between neuroblast and GFAPS cells.
Electrophysiological Differentiation of New Neurons in the Olfactory Bulb
TLDR
These data provide a basic description of the physiology of newly generated cells in the OB and show that such new cells are functional neurons that synaptically integrate into olfactory bulb circuitry soon after their arrival.
Autocrine/Paracrine Activation of the GABAA Receptor Inhibits the Proliferation of Neurogenic Polysialylated Neural Cell Adhesion Molecule-Positive (PSA-NCAM+) Precursor Cells from Postnatal Striatum
TLDR
A demonstration of GABA synthesis and GABAAR function in striatal PSA-NCAM+ cells may shed new light on the understanding of key extrinsic cues that regulate the developmental potential of postnatal neuronal precursors in the CNS.
