EPSP

Excitatory postsynaptic potential Physiology A graded depolarization of a postsynaptic membrane in response to stimulation by a neurotransmitter; EPSPs can be summated but transmitted only over short distances; they can stimulate production of action potentials when a threshold level of depolarization is reached

As described above for CBI-3, CBI-11 also produced rapid EPSPs in the ingestive GABAergic buccal interneuron B40.
Although the relative amplitudes of AMPA and NMDA receptor mediated components of EPSP have been found widely, the amplitude of the NMDA receptor mediated component is usually smaller than that of AMPA receptor mediated component (Figure 3A).
Because the signal intensities of AP, EPSP, and IPSP are 7.07 x [10.sup.-5] [micro]A, 7.155 x [10.sup.-6] [micro]A, and 7 x [10.sup.- 7] [micro]A, so if we superpose thermal noise on the current i0m, when the thermal noise intensity Q is more than [10.sup.-4] [micro]A, the influence of thermal noise on membrane potential and its energy function is far greater than that of the current [i.sub.0m], and when the thermal noise intensity Q is less than [10.sup.-7] [micro]A, the influence of thermal noise on membrane potential and its energy function is far weaker than that of [i.sub.0m].
In excitatory neurons, synaptic activity produces an excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) at one of the postsynaptic terminals of the neuron and it propagates towards the latter's axonal hillock.
Some of them state that the R plants can contain an insensitive type of EPSPS enzyme, and have significant accumulation of shikimate in plant tissue.
Asiatic acid showed the good target as a cognitive enhancer and this can be demonstrated by increasing the inhibitory AChE activity via thin layer chromatographic (TLC) bioautographic technique, enhancing the EPSP without affecting the locomotor.
The active ingredient, glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl glycine), inhibits a specific enzyme of the metabolism of aromatic amino acids, 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate-synthase (EPSP synthase).
This paper presents the work done in Electric Power Systems Project (EPSP) of the Electrical Engineering course, in which the methodology was carried out.
No intuito de se avaliar a performance do SAMTa em sistemas reais, empregaram-se as tecnicas implementadas na analise de simulacoes moleculares da EPSP sintase e inibidores.
The herbicide is mixed with a surfactant to facilitate penetration when applied to aboveground foliage and is transported to the root system where it inhibits amino acid production by inhibiting the enzyme EPSP synthase (Gunsolus and Curran 2002).
O gene marcador de selecao e usado para identificar as celulas geneticamente modificadas, sendo que os mais utilizados sao: o gene neo ou npt II (HERRERAESTRELA et al., 1983), que codifica a enzima Neomicina Fosfotransferase II (NPT II) e confere resistencia a diferentes antibioticos aminoglicosilados (NORELLI & ALDWINKLE, 1993) e o gene aroA, que codifica a enzima Sintase do 5-enolpiruvinil-3-fosfochiquimato (EPSP Sintase) de forma alterada, conferindo resistencia ao herbicida glifosato (COMAI et al., 1983).
