Abstract:This investigation analyzes the effect of an acute hypoxic treatment on the level of four (alpha(1), alpha(2), beta(2), and gamma(2)) subunit mRNAs of the GABA(A) receptor in layer "i" of the developing chick optic tectum. Our results show that 1 hr of normobaric acute hypoxia significantly changes the subunit mRNA levels. Different subunit mRNAs display different sensitivity to hypoxia: alpha(1), beta(2), and gamma(2) mRNAs are highly sensitive, whereas alpha(2) mRNA is almost not affected. The sensitivity of…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
