    In this work, we review some of the mechanisms contributing to the plasticity of inhibitory synapses in the CNS, focusing on the regulation of GABAA receptor (GABAAR) trafficking in response to alterations in neuronal activity or to stimulation of different classes of plasma membrane-associated receptors. Alterations in these mechanisms are important in the refinement of neuronal network activity.

    Selective degeneration of A9 dopaminergic neurons leads to Parkinson's disease. We apply genome-wide promoter identification technologies to identify A9-specific transcripts. In isolated A9 neurons, we identify new variants of erythropoietin receptor (DA-EpoR). DA-EpoR transcript encodes for a N-terminal truncated receptor. Based on STAT5 phosphorylation assays, we show that the new variant of N-terminally truncated EpoR acts as decoy when co-expressed with the full-length form. A similar isoform is also found in human.
