Regulation of GABA signaling by Nicotinic acetylcholine
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) are cholinergic
receptors that form ligand-gated ion channels in the plasma membranes of certain neurons
and on the postsynaptic side of the neuromuscular junctions. As ...
ATP-binding transporters are transmembrane proteins that utilize the energy of
adenosine triphosphate (ATP) hydrolysis to carry out certain biological processes
including translocation of various substrates across membranes. They transport ...
V-myc myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog (c-Myc) is
a multifunctional, nuclear phosphoprotein that plays a role in cell cycle progression,
apoptosis and cellular transformation. c-Myc controls the
transcription of a variety of different targets ...
CCAAT/enhancer binding proteins (C/EBP) are a group of
bZIP transcription factors, consisting of C/EBPalpha,
epsilon, gamma and
zeta, which can bind as homodimers to certain promoters and
RE1-silencing transcription factor (NRSF) is a member of
the Kruppel-type zinc finger transcription factor family. It is a transcriptional
repressor of neuronal genes in non-neuronal tissues. It represses transcription by
binding a DNA sequence element ...
