Intra- and Interhemispheric Propagation of Electrophysiological Synchronous Activity and Its Modulation by Serotonin in the Cingulate Cortex of Juvenile Mice.
... the cerebral cortex is the generation of synchronized activity during normal sensory processing  and also during pathological conditions (e.g., seizures ). Disinhibition of the neocortex by blockers of GABAA receptors (bicuculline, picrotoxin) is especially effective in generating synchronous activity, both in vivo  and in vitro [19, 20, 21]. ... involving the generation and local propagation of this synchronized activity in motor cortical areas [18, 22, 23], including the propagation of epileptiform discharges across the corpus callosum [24, 25], there is still little information about the propagation of this kind of electrical activity in other cortical areas. Among other afferent systems, the ... velocities were within the same range as the propagation velocities described previously for epileptiform activity or interictal discharges induced by the block of GABAergic receptors , but were much faster than the propagation of epileptiform activity induced by bathing the slices in zero Mg2+ extracellular solution [52, 53], a condition in which

Effects of solar activity on noise in CALIOP profiles above the South Atlantic Anomaly
... 11-year cycle of solar activity (with a 1year lag). By analyzing the geographic distribution of noisy profiles, we are able to reproduce known findings about the SAA region. Over the considered period, it shifts westward by 0.3◦ year−1 , and changes in size by 6◦ meridionally and 2◦ zonally, becoming larger with weaker solar activity. All results are ... the SAA, which impacts the noise in CALIOP observations, is anticorrelated with the 11-year cycle of solar activity (with 1 year lag) (Fürst et al., 2009). This anticorrelation is due to heating of the exo- and thermosphere during maximum solar activity, which leads to a higher neutral density in the altitudes below affected by the SAA (e.g., Qian et ... al., 2006). This increases the absorption and deflection of trapped particles, resulting in a lower particle flux compared to when the solar activity is minimum (Dachev et al., 1999). Thus during maximum solar activity the flux of energetic particles below CALIOP is smaller. The 1-year lag reflects the time needed for the atmosphere to react to incoming

Leydig cells with mature cells only forming near the rete testis where Sertoli-like cells remain . Once formed, activity of the adult Leydig cells is dependent on LH and osteocalcin and in the absence of either hormone Leydig cell activity is markedly reduced although cell numbers are largely maintained [27,54]. Results reported here now show for ... cells around the rete testis following Sertoli cell ablation would be consistent with the Sertoli cell-like activity of the rete epithelial cells seen in neonatal mice  and suggests that these cells may retain a degree of Sertoli cell functional activity beyond puberty.

LRRK2 kinase activity is dependent on LRRK2 GTP binding capacity but independent of LRRK2 GTP binding.
... phosphorylation activity for the T1348N mutant clearly allow us to conclude that the T1348N inhibits kinase activity. Taken together, these data show that the capacity for GDP/GTP binding is essential for LRRK2 kinase activity, but that the specific guanine nucleotide bound to LRRK2 ROC does not play a modulatory role on LRRK2 kinase activity. Therefore ... phosphorylation activity of LRRK2 is unchanged when the LRRK2 guanine nucleotide binding pocket is previously saturated with various nucleotides, in contrast to the greatly reduced activity measured for the guanine nucleotide binding site mutant T1348N. Interestingly, when nucleotides were incubated with cell lysates prior to purification of LRRK2, kinase activity ... Our data show that an intact ROCGTPase domain is required for LRRK2 kinase activity and that kinase activity remains unchanged upon direct application of GDP compared to GTP or non-hydrolyzable GTP analogues, reconciling discrepancies in previous reports. Results LRRK2 kinase activity of the affinity purified protein is not altered upon co-incubation
