Bitzenhofer SH, Hanganu-Opatz IL (2014) Oscillatory coupling within neonatal prefrontal-hippocampal networks is independent of selective removal of GABAergic neurons in the hippocampus. Neuropharmacology 77:57-67. doi: 10.1016/j.neuropharm.2013.09.007
Summary: During cognitive tasks neuronal networks are entrained by oscillatory electrical rhythms with different frequencies. It has been proposed that GABAergic neurons in the prefrontal-hippocampal networks control this processing. The authors administered 252 ng of Anti-vGAT-SAP (Cat. #IT-71) into the ventral hippocampus of rats to examine how the GABAergic neurons could be involved. Unconjugated anti-vGAT (Cat #AB-N44) was used as a control. Hippocampal sharp waves were impaired during neonatal development, but the data indicate that oscillatory coupling between the neonatal prefrontal cortex and hippocampus is not controlled by GABAergic hippocampal interneurons.

Summary: Immunofluorescence staining for vesicular GABA transporter (VGAT) in embryonic stem cells reveals a punctate localization.
Dose: Immunostaining and western blotting. After being blocked for 2 h in PBS containing 3% BSA and 0.3% Triton X-100 and after two washes in PBS, cells were incubated in primary antibody against VGAT (diluted 1:400).

Summary: After thawing and brief drying, sections were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde in PBS pH 7.4 for 40 min. Sections were blocked [PBS, 1% bovine serum albumin (BSA), 0.3% Triton X-100], washed, and incubated with primary antibodies for Tuj1 (-tubulin type III), glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), and vesicular GABA transporter (vGAT; 1:400) overnight at 4°C. After rinsing in PBS, slides were incubated with Cy2- or Cy3-conjugated secondary antibodies.
