A direct GABAergic output from the basal ganglia to frontal cortex.
Boston, United States. In Nature, Jun 2015
Two cell types make up the GP-FC projection, distinguished by their electrophysiological properties, cortical projections and expression of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), a synthetic enzyme for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh).
The heart's 'little brain' controlling cardiac function in the rabbit.
Leicester, United Kingdom. In Exp Physiol, May 2015
Using immunohistochemistry, neurons were found to contain choline acetyltransferase or tyrosine hydroxylase and/or neuronal nitric oxide synthase in differing amounts (choline acetyltransferase > tyrosine hydroxylase > neuronal nitric oxide synthase).
The Retinal TNAP.
Budapest, Hungary. In Subcell Biochem, 2014
These strata exactly corresponded those seen after quadruple immunohistochemistry with four canonical IPL markers (tyrosine hydroxylase, choline acetyltransferase, calretinin, protein kinase C α). Diabetes results in diminishing retinal TNAP activity before changes in canonical markers could be observed in a rat model.
Specification of motoneurons from human embryonic stem cells.
In Nat Biotechnol, 2005
The in vitro-generated motoneurons expressed HB9, HoxC8, choline acetyltransferase and vesicular acetylcholine transporter, induced clustering of acetylcholine receptors in myotubes, and were electrophysiologically active.
Smooth muscle cholinergic denervation hypersensitivity in diverticular disease.
London, United Kingdom. In Lancet, 2003
METHODS: Two investigators independently did a blinded immunohistochemical image analysis of localising antibodies to choline acetyltransferase, co-localised with protein gene product (PGP)--a marker of general neural tissue-and smooth muscle muscarinic M3 receptors, on three histological sections of sigmoid colons from ten patients with diverticular disease and ten controls, after resections for rectal tumours.
