In the present study, carbamylcholine chloride (carbachol)-induced G αi/o and G αq/11 activation was identified in postmortem human prefrontal cortical membranes. The following two sample cohorts were used: subjects [1], consisting of 40 controls without neuropsychiatric disorders, and subjects [2], consisting of 20 with bipolar disorder (BP), 20 major depressive disorder (MDD), 20 schizophrenia, and 20 controls, strictly sex- and age-matched.

My dog Jack, thinking, has a proportionally larger hippocampus than you do. If I had a pet bunny, its hippocampus would be (proportionally) larger, still!! You’ve probably heard a lot about the crucial role that the hippocampus plays in recording our “episodic” (historic, serial, ‘long-term’) memories. Does this mean that we should revise that age old saying to “Molly has a memory like a… rabbit!” Or what?! Or put another way, what can a rabbit or dog DO, that is decisively superior to YOU? It turns out that dogs and especially rabbits have an exquisite ability to reconstruc...

Abstract 1,25(OH)2D3 (1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 = calcitriol) is a powerful regulator of mineral metabolism. The hormone increases calcium and phosphate plasma concentrations in part by stimulation of intestinal absorption and renal reabsorption of calcium and phosphate. It is primarily, but not exclusively, produced in the kidney. Renal 1,25(OH)2D3 formation is stimulated by calcium and phosphate deficiency and by parathyroid hormone which is up-regulated by hypocalcemia. 1,25(OH)2D3 formation is inhibited by fibroblast growth factor FGF23, which is up-regulated by phosphate excess and requires Klotho to become e...
