Extended roles in the brain for second messenger systems


, : Extended roles in the brain for second messenger systems. Neuroscience 2(3): 357-372

In neurons, the elongated cell-processes furnished with discrete subsynaptic sites of distinctive structure and enzyme array offer choice terrain for displaying the attributes of messenger-system components. At such sites, messenger-generating and degrading systems are fixed and the nucleotide messengers and some their products are mobile. In different situations, messenger-generating enzymes, degrading enzyme and modulator-components traverse nerve-cell processes; some messenger-activated phosphoproteins also traverse cytoplasm and nuclear membrane. Thus a multiplicity of components is available for carrying and locally modifying and interpreting the signals mediated by the cyclic nucleotides.

Nerve growth factor (NGF) induces in 2 to 10 min the redistribution of F-actin in rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cells. The NGF specificity of this phenomenon was shown by blocking it with anti-NGF antibodies. We used the rapid F-actin redistribution a...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the accumulation of α-Synuclein (a-Syn) into Lewy body inclusions and the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra (SN). Accumulation of a-Syn can induce a...
