Regression analysis was done as the appropriate statistical technique for observing the dependence of number of granule cell with age.
This exposure also leads to atrophy that is characterized by specific targeting of glutaminergic and GABAergic precursor cells of the cerebellum (especially granule cells) resulting in misalignment of Purkinje cells and ectopic and multinucleated granule cells.
This type of radial migration is mostly performed by neurons that have executed tangential migration underneath the pial surface and includes granule cells of the cerebellum (6) and neurons of the pontine nuclei (PN) in the hindbrain.
Unlike the cerebellar granule cells, purkinje cells are all generated before birth on E13 to E16, (13) and Purkinje cell dendritic outgrowth and synaptogenesis occur during postnatal three weeks.
Some FGF2-treated cells also expressed markers for the rhombic lip--the structure from which granule cells develop and migrate, and a marker specific to migrating granule precursors by week seven.
LTD is accompanied by the reduced quantal size of excitatory synaptic currents at synapses between a granule cell and a Purkinje cell, (45) and by the reduced ionotropic glutamate receptor responsiveness of a Purkinje cell.
Dentate granule cell neurogenesis is increased by seizures and contributes to aberrant network reorganization in the adult rat hippocampus.
Incoming signals are transmitted by granule cells in the dentate gyrus to pyramid cells in the CA3 region and from these to pyramid cells in the CA1 region.
Radiation-induced apoptotic and necrotic cell death of granule cells and Purkinje cells were inhibited significantly by alpha-lipoic acid pretreatment.
As reported in this month's issue, a research group exposed cultures of immature neurons known as granule cells and the more developed and more abundant astrocytes to sublethal doses of two well-characterized alkylating genotoxicants: methylazoxymethanol (MAM), a highly toxic compound synthesized from the poison found in plants called cycads, and nitrogen mustard (HN2), a chemotherapeutic agent.
