Selective coupling of mu-calpain activation with the NMDA receptor is independent of translocation and autolysis in primary cortical neurons.


Excessive mu-calpain activation has been linked to several cellular pathologies including excitotoxicity and ischemia. In erythrocytes and other non-central nervous system (CNS) cells, calpain activation is thought to occur following a Ca2+-induced translocation of inactive cytosolic enzyme to membranes and subsequent autolysis. In the present report, we… (More)
