    Mol Med 19:135-48. 2013
    ..Thus, Baiap3/BAIAP3 is gender specifically associated with anxiety and benzodiazepine use disorder, and the analysis of Baiap3/BAIAP3-related functions may help elucidate mechanisms underlying the development of both disorders...

    Sonja M Wojcik
    Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, D 37075 Gottingen, Germany
    Neuron 50:575-87. 2006
    ..Since GABA and glycine compete for vesicular uptake, these data point to a close association of Viaat with GABA-synthesizing enzymes as a key factor in specifying GABAergic neuronal phenotypes...

    Andrea Burgalossi
    Department of Molecular Neurobiology, Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Gottingen, Germany
    Nat Protoc 7:1351-65. 2012
    ..The protocol takes three weeks to complete and provides unprecedented insights into the mechanisms of transmitter release...
  5. ncbi request reprint Synaptic and vesicular co-localization of the glutamate transporters VGLUT1 and VGLUT2 in the mouse hippocampus
    Etienne Herzog
    Max Planck Institut fur experimentelle Medizin, Abteilung Molekulare Neurobiologie, Gottingen, Germany
    J Neurochem 99:1011-8. 2006
    ..As the number of transporter molecules per vesicle affects quantal size, the developmental window where VGLUT1 and VGLUT2 are co-expressed may allow for greater plasticity in the control of quantal release...

    Derya Sargin
    Division of Clinical Neuroscience, Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Gottingen, Germany
    BMC Biol 9:27. 2011
    ..However, the critical EPO targets in brain are unknown, and separation of direct and indirect effects has remained difficult, given the role of EPO in hematopoiesis and brain oxygen supply...

    Physiologisches Institut, Universitat des Saarlandes, Kirrberger Str 8, D 66421 Homburg Saar, Germany
    Curr Biol 15:2243-8. 2005
    ..Priming by Munc13-1 appears to require its interaction with Syntaxin 1 because point mutants that do not bind Syntaxin 1 do not prime chromaffin granules...
