Differential mechanisms are required for phrenic long-term facilitation over the course of motor neuron loss following CTB-SAP intrapleural injections.

Borkowski LF, Nichols NL (2020) Differential mechanisms are required for phrenic long-term facilitation over the course of motor neuron loss following CTB-SAP intrapleural injections. Exp Neurol 334:113460. doi: 10.1016/j.expneurol.2020.113460

Objective: To understand the mechanism responsible for this difference in magnitude of phrenic long-term facilitation (pLTF)

Summary: pLTF in 7d CTB-SAP treated rats is elicited primarily through TrkB and PI3K/Akt-dependent mechanisms, whereas BDNF and MEK/ERK-dependent mechanisms induce pLTF in 28d CTB-SAP treated rats.

Usage: Rats received bilateral intrapleural injections of CTB-SAP; 25 μg dissolved in PBS.
