For whom the bird sings: context-dependent gene expression.
Male zebra finches display two song behaviors: directed and undirected singing. The two differ little in the vocalizations produced but greatly in how song is delivered. "Directed" song is usually accompanied by a courtship ...
Diminishment of respiratory sinus arrhythmia foreshadows doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy.
BACKGROUND: The development of a microcomputer-based device permits quick, simple, and noninvasive quantification of the respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) during quiet breathing. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively and ...
Brain gene regulation by territorial singing behavior in freely ranging songbirds.
To investigate the ecological relevance of brain gene regulation associated with singing behavior in songbirds, we challenged freely ranging song sparrows with conspecific song playbacks within their breeding territories. ...
Induction of anti-myelin antibodies in EAE and their possible role in demyelination.
(J Neurosci Res, 1991-12)
Experimental allergic encephalomyelitis is characterized by invasion of lymphocytes and macrophages into the central nervous system resulting in inflammation, edema, and demyelination. Sera from Lewis rats from 7-95 days ...
Selective expression of insulin-like growth factor II in the songbird brain.
(J Neurosci, 1997-09-15)
Neuronal replacement occurs in the forebrain of juvenile and adult songbirds. To address the molecular processes that govern this replacement, we cloned the zebra finch insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) cDNA, a factor ...
beta2-Adrenergic receptor regulation by GIT1, a G protein-coupled receptor kinase-associated ADP ribosylation factor GTPase-activating protein.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 1998-11-24)
G protein-coupled receptor activation leads to the membrane recruitment and activation of G protein-coupled receptor kinases, which phosphorylate receptors and lead to their inactivation. We have identified a novel ...
