J Neurobiol   Low-frequency depression (LFD) of transmitter release occurs at phasic synapses with stimulation at Hz in both isolated crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) neuromuscular junction (NMJ) preparations and in intact animals. LFD is regulated by presynaptic activity of the Ca2+-dependent phosphatase calcineurin ([Silverman-Gavrila and Charlton, ][1]). Since the fast .

Short-term plasticity of the descending synaptic input to spinal motoneurons controlling muscles involved in expiratory efforts has also been recently shown in turtles, although, in the turtle, the response consisted of a depression of synaptic efficacy with little effect on motor output to inspiratory muscles. It is also clear that the spinal. Motor Neurons: Neurons which activate MUSCLE CELLS.

Synaptic Systems GmbH Rudolf-Wissell-Strasse 28 Göttingen Germany Booth #: 63 Synaptic Systems was originally founded by scientists and started business in with just a handful of licensed antibodies against synaptic proteins which were already well known in the scientific community for their excellent quality. Calcium imaging, current clamp recording, electron microscopy and confocal microscopy were used to explore the reliability of synaptic transmission in cultured cortical neurons. The coupling between action potentials and rises in calcium at distal release sites was first evaluated. Local domains of enhanced calcium influx occurred at axonal varicosities that appeared to be .

Request PDF | Dichotomy in phasic-tonic neuromuscular structure of crayfish inhibitory axons | Crustacean muscles are unique in their innervation by both excitatory and inhibitory neurons. Ectothermic animals in areas characterised by seasonal changes are susceptible to extreme fluctuations in temperature.

To survive through varied temperatures, ectotherms have developed unique strategies. This study focuses on synaptic transmission function at cold temperatures, as it is a vital component of ectothermic animals' survival.

J Neurobiol. Bryan A. Stewart has written: 'Synaptic plasticity in a regenerated crayfish phasic motoneuron'. Neurotrophins play a principal role in neuronal survival and differentiation during development, but also in the maintenance of appropriate adult neuronal circuits and phenotypes.

In the oculomotor system, we have demonstrated that neurotrophins are key regulators of developing and adult neuronal properties, but with peculiarities depending on each neurotrophin. For instance, the.

In amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the “excitotoxic model” hypothesized that pathological increase in glutamatergic input at synaptic level and/or neuronal hyperexcitability would cause Ca 2+ overload and disruption of mitochondria and ultimately lead to motoneuron (MN) death (Rothstein, ).In spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a distinct MN disease, the reduced.

Avulsion of spinal nerve roots is a CNS injury that results in motoneuron cell death and paralysis of the affected limb. It has been demonstrated in rats, cats and primates that following spinal nerve root avulsion injured motoneurons can extend axons into ventral roots or peripheral nerve (PN) grafts that have been immediately reimplanted into the spinal cord and result in functional.

We have previously screened for mutations in genes that are critical for synaptic stability at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction (NMJ; Eaton et al., ; Eaton and Davis, ; Pielage et al.,).When mutated, these genes cause the presynaptic motoneuron terminal to retract from the muscle fiber in a distal-to-proximal manner, leaving behind an unopposed.
