Nerve growth factor (NGF) readdition to NGF-deprived neurons can halt Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) activation, cytochrome c release, and cell death through mechanisms that may involve phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase, Akt, and nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB). We found that expression of the...
Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) can modulate synaptic transmission by increasing intracellular Ca 2+ and it plays a role in several forms of synaptic plasticity. We have constructed a fusion of human mGluR5 and green fluorescent protein (mGluR5–GFP). Expression of mGluR5–GFP in...
The binding of cytokines to the gp130 receptor activates the STAT3, MEK/MAPK, and PI3K/Akt signalling pathways. To assess the relative importance of these pathways in promoting the survival of cytokine-dependent neurons, we conditionally inactivated STAT3 in mice and inhibited MEK, PI3K, and Akt...
Signals regulating diversification of olfactory sensory neurons to express odorant receptors and other genes necessary for correct assembly of the olfactory sensory map persist in the olfactory epithelium of adult mouse. We have screened for genes with an expression pattern correlating with the...
Memantine is a medium-affinity uncompetitive N -methyl- d -aspartate receptor antagonist and has been clinically used as a neuroprotective agent to treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. We have examined the effect of memantine (ip 5–50 mg/kg; 4 h) on the expression of brain-derived...
The adult, mammalian CNS does not regenerate after injury largely because of a glial scar and inhibitors of regeneration in myelin. To date, two myelin inhibitors, myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) and Nogo, both transmembrane proteins, have been identified. No secreted inhibitors of...
Doublecortin is a microtubule-associated protein required for normal corticogenesis in the developing brain. We carried out a yeast two-hybrid screen to identify interacting proteins. One of the isolated clones encodes the μ1 subunit of the adaptor complex AP-1 involved in clathrin-dependent...
