- Comprehensive qPCR profiling of gene expression in single neuronal cellsAmi Citri
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, California, USA
Nat Protoc 7:118-27. 2012..The protocol enables simple and cost-effective profiling of several hundred transcripts from a single cell, and it could have numerous utilities...
- Calcium binding to PICK1 is essential for the intracellular retention of AMPA receptors underlying long-term depressionAmi Citri
Nancy Pritzker Laboratory, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA
J Neurosci 30:16437-52. 2010..These findings support a model whereby calcium-induced modification of PICK1 structure is critical for its function in the retention of internalized AMPARs that underlies the expression of hippocampal NMDAR-dependent LTD...
- Induction of human neuronal cells by defined transcription factorsZhiping P Pang
Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, 265 Campus Drive, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Nature 476:220-3. 2011..These methods may facilitate robust generation of patient-specific human neurons for in vitro disease modelling or future applications in regenerative medicine...
- N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor- and metabotropic glutamate receptor-dependent long-term depression are differentially regulated by the ubiquitin-proteasome systemAmi Citri
Nancy Pritzker Laboratory, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA 94304 5552, USA
Eur J Neurosci 30:1443-50. 2009..These results suggest that, although NMDAR-dependent LTD may utilize ubiquitin as a signal for AMPAR endocytosis, mGluR-induced signaling and LTD are limited by a feedback mechanism that involves the ubiquitin-proteasome system...
- Synaptic plasticity: multiple forms, functions, and mechanismsAmi Citri
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Nancy Pritzker Laboratory, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA 94304 5485, USA
Neuropsychopharmacology 33:18-41. 2008..We also provide examples of the possible developmental and behavioral functions of synaptic plasticity and how maladaptive synaptic plasticity may contribute to neuropsychiatric disorders...
