    Notes: The regional distribution of alternatively spliced messenger RNA encoding the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor R1 subunit (NMDAR1) variants was examined by in situ hybridization in the rat lumbar spinal cord. Splice-specific oligonucleotide probes [recognizing full-length mRNA (NMDAR1-1), deletion exon 21 (NMDAR1-2), deletion exon 22 (NMDAR1-3), combined deletion exons 21 and 22 (NMDAR1-4) and mRNA which lacks (NMDAR1-a) or contains exon 5 (NMDAR1-b)] detected marked differences in abundance and distribution of N- and C-terminal spliced variants. The NMDAR1-a, NMDAR1-2 and NMDAR1-4 mRNAs were evenly distributed throughout all laminae of the dorsal and ventral horns. In the superficial dorsal horn NMDAR1-b mRNA was preferentially detected in laminae II inner and III, while NMDAR1-1 mRNA was restricted to laminae I to III. Large neurons in laminae IV and V contained mainly NMDAR1-a, NMDAR1-2 and NMDAR1-4 mRNAs and occasionally NMDAR1-b. The NMDAR1-3 variant was only detected in very low abundance, being restricted to occasional cells in lamina I and II. In the ventral horn, motor neurons showed strong signals for NMDAR1-a, NMDAR1-b, NMDAR1-2 and NMDAR1-4 mRNAs. Serial sectioning through large motor neurons permitted the detection of multiple splice variants in single neurons. Analysis of the subcellular distribution of the mRNAs revealed that the NMDAR1-1 mRNA was almost exclusively found in the cell nucleus, NMDAR1-a mRNA was largely in the cytoplasm, while all other splice variants showed a homogeneous distribution between nucleus and cytoplasm. Comparison of the in situ hybridization images with functional analyses of heteromeric recombinant receptors will be necessary to ascertain whether splice variants of the NMDAR1 receptor subunit can account for some of the known electrophysiological properties of spinal cord neurons under physiological and pathophysiological conditions.

    Notes: The expression of eight messenger RNA splice forms encoding the Flip and Flop variants of AMPA receptor subunits GluR-A to -D in the rat lumbar spinal cord was examined by in situ hybridization using specific oligonucleotides. In the dorsal horn (laminae I, II and III) the predominant mRNA was GluR-B Flip. Much lower levels of GluR-A Flip were found in lamina I and in superficial parts of lamina II outer. In the ventral horn, motor neurons expressed mainly GluR-B Flip, GluR-C Flip and Flop, and GluR-D Flip. Serial sectioning through large motor neurons indicated that a given cell contained, for example, both GluR-C Flip and Flop splice types.

    Notes: Abstract: Stimulation of astrocytes with the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate leads to the formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate and the subsequent increase of intracellular calcium content. Astrocytes express both ionotropic receptors and metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors, of which mGlu5 receptors are probably involved in glutamate-induced calcium signaling. The mGlu5 receptor occurs as two splice variants, mGlu5a and mGlu5b, but it was hitherto unknown which splice variant is responsible for the glutamate-induced effects in astrocytes. We report here that both mRNAs encoding mGlu5 receptor splice variants are expressed by cultured astrocytes. The expression of mGlu5a receptor mRNA is much stronger than that of mGlu5b receptor mRNA in these cells. In situ hybridization experiments reveal neuronal expression of mGlu5b receptor mRNA in adult rat forebrain but a strong neuronal expression of mGlu5a mRNA only in olfactory bulb. Signals for mGlu5a receptor mRNA in the rest of the brain were diffuse and weak but consistently above background. Activation of mGlu5 receptors in astrocytes yields increases in inositol phosphate production and transient calcium responses. It is surprising that the rank order of agonist potency [quisqualate 〉 (2S, 1′S,2′S)-2-(carboxycyclopropyl)glycine = trans-(1S,3R)-1-amino-1,3-cyclopentanedicarboxylic acid (1S, 3R-ACPD) 〉 glutamate] differs from that reported for recombinantly expressed mGlu5a receptors. The expression of mGlu5a receptor mRNA and the occurrence of 1S, 3R-ACPD-induced calcium signaling were found also in cultured microglia, indicating for the first time expression of mGlu5a receptors in these macrophage-like cells.

    Description: Multiple sclerosis is a common disease of the central nervous system in which the interplay between inflammatory and neurodegenerative processes typically results in intermittent neurological disturbance followed by progressive accumulation of disability. Epidemiological studies have shown that genetic factors are primarily responsible for the substantially increased frequency of the disease seen in the relatives of affected individuals, and systematic attempts to identify linkage in multiplex families have confirmed that variation within the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) exerts the greatest individual effect on risk. Modestly powered genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have enabled more than 20 additional risk loci to be identified and have shown that multiple variants exerting modest individual effects have a key role in disease susceptibility. Most of the genetic architecture underlying susceptibility to the disease remains to be defined and is anticipated to require the analysis of sample sizes that are beyond the numbers currently available to individual research groups. In a collaborative GWAS involving 9,772 cases of European descent collected by 23 research groups working in 15 different countries, we have replicated almost all of the previously suggested associations and identified at least a further 29 novel susceptibility loci. Within the MHC we have refined the identity of the HLA-DRB1 risk alleles and confirmed that variation in the HLA-A gene underlies the independent protective effect attributable to the class I region. Immunologically relevant genes are significantly overrepresented among those mapping close to the identified loci and particularly implicate T-helper-cell differentiation in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3182531/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009"
