Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed in brain, kidney and liver. Expressed within the amygdala, brainstem, cerberal cortex, dorsal root ganglia, dorsal spinal cord, hippocampus, hypothalamus, retina, striatum and ventral spinal cord. Expressed within neurons of the caudate-putamen, olfactory tubercle, nucleus accumbens, hippocampus, interpeduncular nucleus and dorsal and medial raphe nuclei. Expressed in inner hair cells of the ear. Expressed at synaptic terminals within the lateral superior olive (LSO), a nucleus of the mammalian sound localization system, and in the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body (MNTB), which provides inhibitory input to the LSO.6 Publications
