Ventral tegmental area glutamate neurons mediate nonassociative consequences of stress by Dillon J McGovern

Exposure to trauma is a risk factor for the development of a number of mood disorders, and may enhance vulnerability to future adverse life events. Recent data demonstrate that ventral tegmental area (VTA) neurons expressing the vesicular glutamate transporter 2 (VGluT2) signal and causally contribute to behaviors that involve aversive or threatening stimuli. However, it…

AtTLP2, a Tubby-like protein, plays intricate roles in abiotic stress signalling by Nitin Jain

The Arabidopsis Tubby-like protein (TLP) encoding gene, AtTLP2, plays intricate roles during ABA-dependent abiotic stress signalling, particularly salt and dehydration stress responses. TLPs (Tubby-like proteins) are a small group of eukaryotic proteins characterized by the presence of a Tubby domain. The plant TLPs have been widely shown to play important roles during abiotic stress signaling.…

Features of the Effects of Glutamatergic System Modulators in the Model of Hyperthermal Seizures in Rat Pups by V G Bashkatova

We studied the effect of lamotrigine, an anticonvulsant inhibiting the presynaptic release of glutamate, and LY341495, an antagonist of metabotropic glutamate 2/3 receptors, on the development of hyperthermic seizures and the content of LPO products in the brain of 8-10-day-old Wistar rats. Rat pups in the early postnatal period demonstrated pronounced seizures in response to…
