- Synaptophysin immunoreactivity in the rat pituitary: alterations after 6-hydroxydopamine treatmentL C Saland
Department of Neurosciences, The University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque 87131 5223, USA
Endocrine 9:201-6. 1998..We suggest that 6-OHDA treatment damages synaptic vesicle integrity in both the intermediate and neural lobes of the pituitary, and that recovery is in progress, but not complete at 3 wk after the drug is administered...
- Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor in the rat pituitary glandL C Saland
Department of Neurosciences, The University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, NM, USA
Brain Res Bull 52:109-13. 2000..The presence of GDNF in areas of the pituitary is discussed in the context of its possible function to support and maintain hypothalamic innervation, as well as a potential autocrine factor within endocrine cells...
- The mammalian pituitary intermediate lobe: an update on innervation and regulationL C Saland
Department of Neurosciences, University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, NM 87131 5223, USA
Brain Res Bull 54:587-93. 2001..The endocrine cells of the IL and their direct hypothalamic innervation are considered to be an easily accessed peripheral model for study of both neural-endocrine and neurotrophic-target cell interactions...
- Chronic ethanol consumption reduces delta-and mu-opioid receptor-stimulated G-protein coupling in rat brainL C Saland
Department of Neurosciences, University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
Alcohol Clin Exp Res 28:98-104. 2004..The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential for uncoupling of the delta- and the mu-OR after chronic ethanol consumption in a nonpreferring rat strain...

Department of Neurosciences, School of Medicine, MSC084740, 1 University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131 0001, USA
Neurosci Lett 381:163-8. 2005..Changes in OR expression and functional coupling in the CNS may be factors in ongoing ethanol consumption and tolerance...
- Chronic ethanol exposure increases the association of hippocampal mu-opioid receptors with G-protein receptor kinase 2LINDA C SALAND
Department of Neurosciences, The University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, NM 87131 0001, USA
Alcohol 42:493-7. 2008..Possible changes in GRK2 association with ORs after chronic ethanol may be related to levels of phosphorylation and subsequent trafficking of the receptors...
- Alterations in GAP-43-immunoreactive innervation in the aging rat pituitaryL C Saland
Department of Anatomy, University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque 87131 5221, USA
Neurosci Lett 208:138-42. 1996..Since GAP-43 has also been suggested to modulate neurotransmitter release, a reduction in the protein in aging nerve terminals may diminish availability of transmitters at presynaptic sites...
- Delta opioid receptor localization in the rat cerebellumA Abeyta
Department of Neurosciences, The University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Basic Medical Sciences Building, 87131-5223, Albuquerque, NM, USA
