The triggered currents move through dendrites and cell body to the axon base, and pass through the membrane to the extracellular space.
However, the up-take of disease proteins from extracellular space into neurons is directly linked to intracellular accumulation of disease proteins, and the downstream pathways after transmission would be the same as described in this review.
The virus particles seen in the extracellular space were apparently released prior to heat treatment of the tumors (Fig.
Considering the intracellular and extracellular spaces specifically, we have:
6,17) Diffusion restriction at the margin is due to either reduced extracellular space or enlarged cells, as the water is trapped in the intracellular space.
The MeHg-GSH adduct is thought to be excteted into the extracellular space via multidtug resistance-associated proteins (MRPs) (Ballatori 2002; Madejczyk et al.
The rest is found in what is referred to as the extracellular space, which consists of the blood vessels (intravascular space) and the spaces between cells (interstitial space).
The breakdown of cell membranes and muscle hydrolysis causes the release of electrolytes and water into extracellular space, therefore decreasing the phase angle (area of decreasing slope in Fig.
2) The target epitope has to be accessible in vivo in the normal brain and spinal cord for antibodies, present in the extracellular space.
Hemorrhage and operation cause a contraction of the extracellular space needing replacement--evidence and implications?
Because AICAR inhibits AMP deaminase (AMPDA), an increased AICAR level leads to the release of intracellular adenine nucleotides and adenosine, either or both, into the extracellular space.
Examples of topics covered include presynaptic regulation of extracellular dopamine as studied by continuous amperometry in anesthetized animals; fast scan cyclic voltammetry of dopamine and serotonin in mouse brain slices; determining serotonin and dopamine uptake rates in synaptosomes using high-speed chronoamperometry; biophysical properties of brain extracellular space explored in ion-selective microelectrodes, integrative optical imaging, and related techniques; principles, development, and applications of self-referencing electrochemical microelectrodes to the determination of fluxes at cell membranes; telemetry for biosensor systems; and in vivo fast-scan cyclic voltammetry of dopamine near microdialysis probes.
