Department of Molecular and Biomedical Pharmacology, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky 40536, USA
J Neurosci 30:6058-71. 2010..In turn, these MSI-associated neuroenergetic changes may promote inflammation, neuronal vulnerability, and risk of cognitive impairment/AD...
- Calcineurin enhances L-type Ca(2+) channel activity in hippocampal neurons: increased effect with age in cultureC M Norris
Department of Molecular and Biomedical Pharmacology, College of Medicine, MS 310 UKMC, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40536 0298, USA
Neuroscience 110:213-25. 2002..Moreover, this action appears to be increased concomitantly with the well-characterized increase in L-type Ca(2+) channel availability in hippocampal neurons with age-in-culture...
- Expression of alpha 1D subunit mRNA is correlated with L-type Ca2+ channel activity in single neurons of hippocampal "zipper" slicesK C Chen
Department of Pharmacology, University of Kentucky Medical Center, 800 Rose Street, Lexington, KY 40536, USA
