Quantitative analysis of afferents expressing substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide, isolectin B4, neurofilament 200, and Peripherin in the sensory root of the rat trigeminal ganglion.
Taegu, South Korea. In J Comp Neurol, 2015
Substance P (SP), calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), and isolectin B4 (IB4) are widely used as markers for peripheral neurons with unmyelinated fibers, whereas neurofilament 200 (NF200), and Peripherin are used as markers for neurons with myelinated fibers, and with unmyelinated or small-caliber fibers, respectively.
Numb regulates the polarized delivery of cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels in rod photoreceptor cilia.
Montréal, Canada. In J Neurosci, 2014
Interestingly, we report that loss of Numb in photoreceptors does not affect the localization of outer segment disk membrane proteins, such as rhodopsin, Peripherin-rds, Rom-1, and Abca4, but significantly disrupts the localization of the rod cyclic nucleotide-gated (Cng) channels, which accumulates on the inner segment plasma membrane in addition to its normal localization to the outer segments.
Expression of peripherin in human cochlea.
Uppsala, Sweden. In Cell Tissue Res, 2010
study analyzed expression of peripherin(PP) in the cochlea; in organ of Corti, PP seems to be specifically expressed in outer hair cell afferents; small or type II spiral ganglion cell bodies also intensely express PP
