A Combinatorial Viral Vector Strategy for Targeting Direct Striatal Medium Spiny Neurons in Wildtype Rats
Medium spiny neurons account for over 90% of all neurons in the striatum and are classified as either direct (dMSNs) or indirect (iMSN) projecting to the substantia nigra. Direct MSNs can be identified based on the expression ...
Photoacoustic imaging of head and neck cancer: Preclinical optimization and clinical translation
Tumor oxygenation critically influences the response of head and neck tumors to radiation therapy (RT). Specifically, tumor hypoxia, or low tumor oxygenation, is a negative prognostic indicator of RT response in head and ...
Sodium-Activated Potassium Channels and Their Role in Neuronal Excitability
The sodium-activated potassium (K Na ) channel subfamily is comprised of two member subunits termed Slack and Slick (encoded by the KCNT1 and KCNT2 genes, respectively), which homo- and/or hetero-tetramerize to form ...
