Axonal degeneration represents an early pathological event in neurodegeneration, constituting an important target for neuroprotection. Regardless of the initial injury, which could be toxic, mechanical, metabolic, or genetic, degeneration of axons shares a common mechanism involving mitochondrial dysfunction and production...

Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChRs) are members of the superfamily of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Muscarinic receptors are relatively abundant in the central nervous system and in the peripheral parasympathetic nervous system. Several studies have suggested that muscarinic receptors also...

TRH increases cytosolic-free calcium ([Ca2+]i) by activating phospholipase C(PL-C), which induces phosphoinositol hydrolysis, leading to Ca2+ mobilization from inositol trisphosphate (IP3) sensitive stores, and by increasing Ca2+ influx. Increases in [Ca2+]i stimulate PRL secretion. We investigated the effects of U-73122...

The tachykinin NK2 receptor plays a key role in gastrointestinal motor function. Enteric neurons release neurokinin A (NKA), which activates NK2 receptors on gastrointestinal smooth muscle, leading to contraction and increased motility. In patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome, the...

Stimulation of rat pancreatic acinar cells with low concentrations of phosphatidylinositol (PI)-linked secretagogues induces [Ca2+]i oscillations, without measurable changes in the formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate. Therefore, we tested U73122 a new phospholipase C inhibitor to determine if PI turnover is...

The human natural killer-1 (HNK-1) carbohydrate epitope, composed of a unique sulfated trisaccharide (HSO3-3GlcAβ1-3Galβ1-4GlcNAc-R), is highly expressed during brain development and regulates higher brain function. However, it remains unclear which glycoprotein carries the HNK-1 epitope in the embryonic brain and...

Through their ability to modulate synaptic transmission, glial cells are key regulators of neuronal circuit formation and activity. Kidins220/ARMS (kinase-D interacting substrate of 220 kDa/ankyrin repeat-rich membrane spanning) is one of the key effectors of the neurotrophin pathways in neurons where...
