Previously, we have reported alterations in thalamic NMDA receptor subunit and excitatory amino acid transporter expression in schizophrenia, consistent with the hypothesis that thalamic glutamatergic dysfunction may contribute to the pathophysiology of this illness. We have generalized this hypothesis to include other molecules of the glutamate synapse. Using riboprobes specific for human brain-specific Na+-dependent inorganic phosphate transporter (BNPi) and differentiation-associated Na+/Pi… CONTINUE READING
