- GABAA receptor promoter hypermethylation in suicide brain: implications for the involvement of epigenetic processesMichael O Poulter
Molecular Brain Research Group, Robarts Research Institute, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada
Biol Psychiatry 64:645-52. 2008..Epigenetic mechanisms may be involved in the reprogramming of gene expression in response to stressful stimuli. This investigation determined whether epigenetic phenomena might similarly be associated with suicide/depression...
- Plasticity of the GABA(A) receptor subunit cassette in response to stressors in reactive versus resilient miceM O Poulter
Molecular Brain Research Group, Robarts Research Institute, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada
Neuroscience 165:1039-51. 2010..These findings support the view that analyses involving subunit organization, rather than just differences in absolute levels, may be expedient in assessing GABA(A) functioning in stressor-related psychological disturbances...
- Static, transient and permanent organization of GABA receptor expression in calbindin-positive interneurons in response to amygdala kindled seizuresR Meguro
Neuroscience Research Institute, Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
J Neurochem 91:144-54. 2004..These data indicate that different interneuron populations may selectively reorganize their GABAA subunit expression in response to seizures...
- Transient expression of GABAA receptor subunit mRNAs in the cellular processes of cultured cortical neurons and gliaM O Poulter
Laboratory of Molecular Neuropharmacology, Institute of Biological Sciences, National Research Council of Canada, Bldg M 54, Montreal Road Campus, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Brain Res Mol Brain Res 69:44-52. 1999..These results suggest that the selective trafficking of GABAA receptor subunit mRNAs during synaptogenesis may be regulated by synapse formation and/or glial-neural communication...
