1. SUMOylation regulates kainate receptor endocytosis and synaptic transmission

    Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part A:... 146(4):S103 (2007)

  2. Developmental changes in AMPA and kainate receptor-mediated quantal transmission at thalamocortical synapses in the barrel cortex.

    Journal of Neuroscience 25(21):5259 (2005) PMID 15917466

    During the first week of life, there is a shift from kainate to AMPA receptor-mediated thalamocortical transmission in layer IV barrel cortex. However, the mechanisms underlying this change and the differential properties of AMPA and kainate receptor-mediated transmission remain essentially unex...

  4. Kainate receptor trafficking: physiological roles and molecular mechanisms.

    Pharmacology & Therapeutics 104(3):163 (2004) PMID 15556673

    Recently, there has been intense interest in the mechanisms regulating the trafficking and synaptic targeting of kainate receptors in neurons. This topic is still in its infancy when compared with studies of trafficking of other ionotropic glutamate receptors; however, it is already clear that m...

  8. Presynaptic kainate receptors impart an associative property to hippocampal mossy fiber long-term potentiation.

    Nature Neuroscience 6(10):1058 (2003) PMID 12947409

    Hippocampal mossy fiber synapses show an unusual form of long-term potentiation (LTP) that is independent of NMDA receptor activation and is expressed presynaptically. Using receptor antagonists, as well as receptor knockout mice, we found that presynaptic kainate receptors facilitate the induct...
  9. Mediation of hippocampal mossy fiber long-term potentiation by presynaptic Ih channels.

    Science 295(5552):143 (2002) PMID 11778053

    Hippocampal mossy fiber long-term potentiation (LTP) is expressed presynaptically, but the exact mechanisms remain unknown. Here, we demonstrate the involvement of the hyperpolarization-activated cation channel (Ih) in the expression of mossy fiber LTP. Established LTP was blocked and reversed b...

  11. The Actions of Synaptically Released Zinc at Hippocampal Mossy Fiber Synapses

    Neuron 26(1):187 (2000)

    Zn 2+ is present at high concentrations in the synaptic vesicles of hippocampal mossy fibers. We have used Zn 2+ chelators and the mocha mutant mouse to address the physiological role of Zn 2+ in this pathway. Zn 2+ is not involved in the unique presynaptic pl...
