Depletion of dopamine (DA) reduces D, receptor number, but D-3 receptor expression is also regulated by brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). We took advantage of transgenic heterozygous BDNF mutant mice (+/-) to determine if reduced BDNF and…

In hippocampal area CA1, long-term potentiation (LTP) is induced by tetanic stimulation protocols that activate N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. In addition, some stimulation protocols can induce LTP during NMDA receptor blockade. An initial…

N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are important in many instances of synaptic plasticity. In hippocampal area CA1, long-term potentiation (LTP) can be induced by both NMDA receptor-dependent and -independent mechanisms. Using intracellular…

In an effort to identify novel binding sites for cocaine and its analogs, we carried out binding studies with the high-affinity and selective ligand [I-125]RTI-121 in rat frontal cortical tissue. Very low densities of binding sites were found.…

Evidence from human amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients and ALS-linked Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD) transgenic mice bearing the mutation of glycine to alanine at position 93 (G93A) suggests that the pro-apoptotic protein prostate…

In the present study, [H-3]nisoxetine binding to norepinephrine (NE) uptake sites and [H-3]norepinephrine uptake were investigated within olfactory bulb (OB) and frontal cortex homogenates from intact and castrated male rats. Statistically…

Previous work has demonstrated a complex neurochemical and neuroanatomical heterogeneity of the striatum in normal brains. The present research investigated whether the heterogeneous distribution of dopamine would be altered following unilateral…

Noise is the most common occupational and environmental hazard, and noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is the second most common form of sensorineural hearing deficit. Although therapeutics that target the free-radical pathway have shown promise, none…
