Methods Mol Biol 1318:87-96. 2015..This chapter will outline the requisite steps including gel electrophoresis of a protein sample, transfer of protein from a gel to a membrane support, and immunodetection of a target antigen. ..
- Ventral tegmental area glutamate neurons: electrophysiological properties and projectionsThomas S Hnasko
Department of Physiology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California 94143, USA
J Neurosci 32:15076-85. 2012..Thus, glutamate neurons form a physiologically and anatomically distinct subpopulation of VTA projection neurons...
- Dopaminergic terminals in the nucleus accumbens but not the dorsal striatum corelease glutamateGarret D Stuber
Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center, University of California, San Francisco, Emeryville, California 94608, USA
J Neurosci 30:8229-33. 2010..Thus, the unique ability of NAc-projecting dopamine neurons to synchronously activate both dopamine and glutamate receptors may have crucial implications for the ability to respond to motivationally significant stimuli...
