Inhibiting Lateral Habenula Improves L-DOPA-induced Dyskinesia.
Bordeaux, France. In Biol Psychiatry, Oct 2014
BACKGROUND: A systematic search of brain nuclei putatively involved in L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA)-induced dyskinesia (LID) in Parkinson's disease shed light, notably, upon the lateral habenula (LHb), which displayed an overexpression of the ∆FosB, ARC, and Zif268 immediate-early genes only in rats experiencing abnormal involuntary movements (AIMs).
Reproduction, smell, and neurodevelopmental disorders: genetic defects in different hypogonadotropic hypogonadal syndromes.
Liège, Belgium. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), Dec 2013
Interestingly, defects in PROKR2, FGFR1, FGF8, CHD7, DUSP6, and WDR11 genes are also associated with normosmic IHH, whereas mutations in KISS1/KISSR, TAC3/TACR3, GNRH1/GNRHR, LEP/LEPR, HESX1, FSHB, and LHB are only present in patients with normosmic IHH.
Comparative transcriptome analysis reveals early pregnancy-specific genes expressed in peripheral blood of pregnant sows.
Beijing, China. In Plos One, Dec 2013
Of the differently expressed genes, nine (including LPAR3, RXFP4, GALP, CBR1, CBR2, GPX6, USP18, LHB and NR5A1) were found to exert function related to early pregnancy processes.
The medial habenula: still neglected.
Houston, United States. In Front Hum Neurosci, 2012
While the lateral habenula (LHb) has been extensively studied, the anatomically and histochemically distinct medial habenula (MHb) remains largely understudied.
Structural and functional proteomics of intracytoplasmic membrane assembly in Rhodobacter sphaeroides.
United States. In J Mol Microbiol Biotechnol, 2012
Functional aspects of the photosynthetic unit assembly process were monitored by fluorescence induction/relaxation measurements of the variable fluorescence arising from LH-bacteriochlorophyll a. Slowing of the rate of RC electron transfer turnover (τQA), as assessed from the relaxation phase, was correlated with the growth of the functional absorption cross section (σ) and LH2/LH1 molar ratios.
Luteinizing hormone beta mutation and hypogonadism in men and women.
Brasília, Brazil. In N Engl J Med, 2007
homozygous mutation of a 5' splice site in LHB: IVS2+1G-->C disrupts the splicing of messenger RNA, generating a gross abnormality in the processing of the luteinizing hormone beta-subunit mRNA, which abrogates the secretion of luteinizing hormone
