- Axoplasmic transport and its signal transduction mechanismT Takenaka
Department of Physiology and Anatomy, Yokohama City University, Kanazawa Ku, Yokohama, 236 0004, Japan
Jpn J Physiol 48:413-20. 1998..Although axoplasmic transport is the important neuronal function, its regulation is poorly understood. In this review, we focus on the dynamics of organelle transport and its regulatory mechanisms mediated by neurotransmitters...
- Immunohistochemical localisation of regulatory neuropeptides in human circumvallate papillaeT Kusakabe
Department of Anatomy, Yokohama City University School of Medicine, Yokohama, Japan
J Anat 192:557-64. 1998..These results suggest that the dense SP and CGRP-IR fibres within the connective tissue core of the human circumvallate papillae may be involved in the deep sensation of the tongue...
- Hypoxic adaptation of the peptidergic innervation in the rat carotid bodyT Kusakabe
Department of Anatomy, Yokohama City University School of Medicine, 3 9 Fukuura, Kanazawa Ku, Yokohama 236 0004, Japan
Brain Res 806:165-74. 1998..Because these neuropeptides are vasoactive in nature, altered carotid body circulation may contribute to modulation of the chemosensory mechanisms by chronic hypoxia...
