Sorcin is a 22 kDa calcium binding protein that is widely distributed in mammalian tissues, including brain, and is associated with the ryanodine receptor (RyR) family of intracellular calcium-release channels in the heart. To determine the cellular sites for potential central functions of sorcin, we examined the electron microscopic immunocytochemical localization of antipeptide antisera against sorcin and against cardiac and brain RyR in the rat caudate-putamen nucleus (CPN), one of the few… CONTINUE READING
