- Nicotine-induced phosphorylation of phosphorylated cyclic AMP response element-binding protein (pCREB) in hippocampal neurons is potentiated by agrinChristian Chiamulera
Section of Pharmacology, Department of Medicine and Public Health, University of Verona, P le Scuro, 10, 37134 Verona, Italy
Neurosci Lett 442:234-8. 2008..These findings suggest that increasing the concentration of an ECM molecule, i.e. agrin, may enhance nicotine effects on pCREB and that both MAPK and CaMKII signalling may play a regulatory role...
- Increases in cholinergic neurotransmission measured by using choline-sensitive microelectrodes: enhanced detection by hydrolysis of acetylcholine on recording sites?Chiara Giuliano
Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Program, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 1043, USA
Neurochem Int 52:1343-50. 2008..Collectively, these results indicate that co-coating of microelectrodes with AChE does not enhance the detection of cholinergic activity in the cortex compared with measurements via recording sites coated only with ChOx...
