  1. 1. GABA in the islets of Langerhans

    University dissertation from Anna Wendt, BMC B11, S-22184 Lund

    Author : Anna Wendt; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; secreting systems; diabetologi; sekretion; Endokrinologi; Endocrinology; SLMV; paracrine regulation; LDCV; islets of Langerhans; autocrine regulation; GABA; diabetology;

    Abstract : GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) is a well-known inhibitory neurotransmitter in the CNS. GABA is also present at high concentrations in the insulin-producing β-cells in the islets of Langerhans, but its function there is less clear. GABA is believed to accumulate in SLMVs (synaptic-like microvesicles). READ MORE

  2. 2. Chemical signalling in the Drosophila brain GABA, short neuropeptide F and their receptors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Lina E. Enell; Dick Nässel; Jonathan Bacon; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Insect nervous system; Drosophila; GABA; sNPF; GPCR; ion channel receptor; feeding; metabolic stress; olfaction; antennal; lobe; mushroom body; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Morphology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Morfologi; Functional Zoomorphology; funktionell morfologi;

    Abstract : Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and short neuropeptide F (sNPF) are widespread signalling molecules in the brain of insects. In order to understand more about the signalling and to some extent start to unravel the functional roles of these two substances, this study has examined the locations of the transmitters and their receptors in the brain of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster using immunocytochemistry in combination with Gal4/UAS technique.

  4. 4. GABA-, glycine- and glutamate-induced currents in rat medial preoptic neurons functional interactions and modulation by capsaicin

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Urban Karlsson; Staffan Johansson; Johannes Krupp; Bryndis Birnir; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medial preoptic nucleus; synaptic transmission; glutamate; GABA; glycine; TRPV1; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The medial preoptic nucleus (MPN) of the hypothalamus plays a major role in many functions involved in maintaining bodily homeostasis, such as thermoregulation and osmoregulation, as well as in the control of complex behaviours, e.g. sexual behaviour. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neuron-glial Interaction in the Developing Peripheral Nervous System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Corell; Åsa Fex Svenningsen; Klas Kullander; Helgi Schöith; Heape Anthony; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Schwann cell; nonmyelinating Schwann cell; myelinating Schwann cell; development; proliferation; differentiation; myelin; neural stem cell; central nervous system; peripheral nervous system; enteric nervous system; N-cadherin; GABA; GAD; GABA B receptor; baclofen; CGP55485; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is the most sophisticated organ in the mammalian body. In such a complex network, neuron-glial interaction is essential and controls most developmental processes, such as stem cell fate determination, migration, differentiation, synapse formation, ensheathment and myelination.
