Selectively Enriched Messenger RNAs in Rat Synaptoneurosomes

Contact Person: Robert B. Denman (bob1028@interport.net)


Introduction We are interested in studying the effects of ageing on synaptic transmission. Recent studies have shown that protein synthesis occurs in response to various synaptic stimuli. The messages that are translated as a result of these stimuli are not well known, yet it is logical to infer that they must play an important role in the synaptic response. Determining whether age-related deficits in these messages are detrimental to synaptic activity should provide information on the ageing process. In the studies presented here a method for identifying these RNAs is presented.
