Selective cholinergic denervation inhibits expression of long-term potentiation in the adult but not infant rat hippocampus.

Motooka Y, Kondoh T, Nomura T, Tamaki N, Tozaki H, Kanno T, Nishizaki T (2001) Selective cholinergic denervation inhibits expression of long-term potentiation in the adult but not infant rat hippocampus. Devel Brain Res 129:119-123. doi: 10.1016/s0165-3806(01)00179-1

Summary: The authors studied the possible role of cholinergic systems in long-term potentiation (LTP), which is one of the most intensively studied models of learning and memory. 192-Saporin (4.2 µg/5 µl, Cat. #IT-01) injections were made in both infant and adult rats and the probability of LTP development was studied in hippocampal slices from animals treated 2 weeks or 2 months before. Cholinergic denervation by 192-Saporin did not affect LTP expression in the infant brain, however, the results strongly suggest that cholinergic systems in the adult brain participate in an LTP pathway.
