- The identification of vesicular glutamate transporter 3 suggests novel modes of signaling by glutamateRobert T Fremeau
Department of Neurology, University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:14488-93. 2002..The dendritic expression of VGLUT3 by particular neurons also indicates the potential for retrograde synaptic signaling. The distribution and subcellular location of VGLUT3 thus suggest novel modes of signaling by glutamate...
- Vesicular neurotransmitter transporter expression in developing postnatal rodent retina: GABA and glycine precede glutamateJuliette Johnson
Department of Ophthalmology, University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco, California 94143 0730, USA
J Neurosci 23:518-29. 2003..Furthermore, vesicular glutamate transmission likely occurs before ribbon synapse formation in the inner retina...
- Vesicular glutamate transporter 3 expression identifies glutamatergic amacrine cells in the rodent retinaJuliette Johnson
Department of Ophthalmology, University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco, San Francisco, California 94143, USA
J Comp Neurol 477:386-98. 2004..Furthermore, a subset of VGLUT3 cells expressed the circadian clock gene period 1, implicating VGLUT3 cells as part of the light-entrainable retina-based circadian system...
- Vesicular glutamate transporter 1 is required for photoreceptor synaptic signaling but not for intrinsic visual functionsJuliette Johnson
Department of Ophthalmology, University of California School of Medicine, San Francisco, California 94143, USA
J Neurosci 27:7245-55. 2007..Furthermore, melanopsin and VGLUT2 expression in a subset of RGCs immediately after birth strongly supports the idea that intrinsic vision can function well before rod- and cone-mediated signaling has matured...
- The H+-coupled electrogenic lysosomal amino acid transporter LYAAT1 localizes to the axon and plasma membrane of hippocampal neuronsChristopher C Wreden
Department of Neurology and Physiology, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, San Francisco, California 94143 0435, USA
J Neurosci 23:1265-75. 2003..A protease protection assay and measurements of intracellular pH further indicate abundant expression at the plasma membrane, raising the possibility of physiological roles for LYAAT1 on the cell surface as well as in lysosomes...
- Melanopsin-dependent light avoidance in neonatal miceJuliette Johnson
Department of Ophthalmology, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:17374-8. 2010..These results strongly suggest that light activation of ipRGCs may regulate physiological functions such as sleep/wake cycles in preterm and neonatal infants...
- Cell-specific expression of plasma membrane calcium ATPase isoforms in retinal neuronsDavid Krizaj
Department of Physiology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California 94143 0730, USA
J Comp Neurol 451:1-21. 2002..We conclude that PMCA isoforms are selectively expressed in retinal neurons and that processes of Ca(2+) clearance are different in rod and cone bipolar cells...
- Need rods? Get glycine receptors and taurineRENE C RENTERIA
Department of Ophthalmology, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Neuron 41:839-41. 2004..In this issue of Neuron, Young and Cepko show that taurine acts via GlyRalpha2 subunit-containing glycine receptors expressed by retinal progenitor cells at birth...
- Vesicular glutamate transporters 1 and 2 target to functionally distinct synaptic release sitesRobert T Fremeau
Department of Neurology, Graduate Programs in Neuroscience and Cell Biology, University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, CA 94143, USA
Science 304:1815-9. 2004..The loss of VGLUT1 also reduced the reserve pool of synaptic vesicles. Thus, VGLUT1 plays an unanticipated role in membrane trafficking at the nerve terminal...
