• Amphetamine Alters Acid-Sensing Ion Channel Expression in the Rat Striatum 

    Suman, A.; Mao, Li-Min; Fibuch, Eugene; Wang, John Q. (2010-03)
    Introduction: The acid-sensing ion channel (ASIC) is specifically activated by a drop in the extracellular pH level. These channels are widely expressed in mammalian brains and actively modulate synaptic transmission and ...
  • Amphetamine Alters Group I mGluR Expression in the Rat Striatum and Medial Prefrontal Cortex 

    Shaffer, C. B.; Mao, Li-Min; Fibuch, Eugene; Wang, John Q. (2010-03)
    Introduction: Group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluR1/mGluR5 subtypes) and their key scaffolding protein Homer1b/c are densely expressed in the striatum. These receptors are believed to play important roles in ...
  • Chronic Fibrotic Changes in Experimental Pulmonary Embolization in the Rat Model 

    Mehrer, M.; Schroeppel, J.; Fibuch, Eugene; Adler, F.; Molteni, A.; Herndon, B.; Lankachandra, K. M.; McIff, T.; Poisner, A. M. (Alan M.) (2010-03)
    Introduction: Fat embolism, a subclinical event, occurs in many clinical settings, such as long bones fractures, liposuction and during cardiopulmonary bypass. Some cases, especially with trauma, result in fat embolism ...
  • Clearing the hurdles for nanotechnology: In vivo inhalation effects 

    Herndon, B.; Nalvarte-Kostoryz, Elisabet L. (Elisabet Lourdes), 1958-; Molteni, A.; Quinn, T.; Fibuch, Eugene (2010-03)
    INTRODUCTION: Nanoparticles of many types have been created for industrial and medical applications. Among these nanoparticles, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) are of high interest for their physicochemical properties ...
  • Regulation of Phosphorylation of Dopamine D3 Receptors in Mouse Striatal Neurons in vivo 

    Rivera, D.; Mao, Li-Min; Fibuch, Eugene; Wang, John Q. (2010-03)
    Introduction: Dopamine D3 receptors (D3Rs) are G-protein-coupled receptors. These D3Rs inhibit adenylyl cyclase and the downstream formation of cAMP. Due to their preferential expression in the mesolimbic areas, especially ...
