Targeting Talk: Not the Right Stuff

Are all lots of 192-Saporin (192-IgG-SAP, Cat. #IT-01) the same? There are variances from lot to lot, and Advanced Targeting Systems includes a cytotoxicity graph on the data sheet with each product comparing the current lot with previous lots. Chemicon International also sells immunotoxins, and used to distribute ATS products. However, since early 2002 (according …

Cover Article: Cholinergic Deafferentation of the Entorhinal Cortex Impairs Working Memory for Novel, but not Familiar Stimuli in a Delayed Non-Match to Sample (DNMS) Task.

Contributed by ATS’s 2003 Society for Neuroscience Poster of the Year Award Winner: Dr. Jill McGaughy, Boston University, 64 Cummington St., Boston, MA 02215 Muscarinic cholinergic receptor activation in entorhinal cortex (EC) activates intrinsic depolarizing membrane currents, which cause self-sustained spiking activity in single neurons.[1] This effect may underlie delay activity and match-dependent activity changes …
