Current recommendation for the standardization of BTM measurements in future studies is to use serum carboxy terminal telopeptide of collagen type I (s-CTX) as the standard bone resorption marker and serum procollagen type I N-terminal propeptide (P1NP) as the standard bone formation marker [4].
While NMDARs have been reported to be synaptic or perisynaptic, developmental replacement of G1uN2B by GluN2A at hippocampal synapses (Barria and Malinow, 2002) depends on the match between the cytoplasmic carboxy terminal domain of GluN2 and the predominant MAGUK expressed at a given postnatal age (Sheng, 2001; Kiihr, 2006).
