Homer1a is a core brain molecular correlate of sleep loss.
Lausanne, Switzerland. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2008
By generating a transgenic mouse line, we show that in Homer1-expressing cells specifically, apart from Homer1a, three other activity-induced genes (Ptgs2, Jph3, and Nptx2) are overexpressed after sleep loss.
Coexpression of junctophilin type 3 and type 4 in brain.
Sendai, Japan. In Brain Res Mol Brain Res, 2003
So far, three JPs have been identified as tissue-specific subtypes derived from different genes; JP-1 is specifically expressed in skeletal muscle, JP-2 is detected throughout muscle cell types, and JP-3 is predominantly expressed in the brain.
Characterization of human junctophilin subtype genes.
Kurume, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2000
RNA blot hybridization indicated that tissue-specific expression patterns of JP genes in human are essentially the same as those in mouse; skeletal muscle contained both JP-1 and JP-2 mRNAs, the heart predominantly expressed JP-2 mRNA, and the brain specifically contained JP-3 mRNA.
