Sorry, no etymologies found.
However, unlike most currently used markers that also label cerebellar astrocytes, these four genes appear to be completely specific to Bergmann glia.
It is known that it is essential for movement, as damage to this area can produce tremor and other movement disorders - such as a condition called cerebellar ataxia.
What they are, actually for people who pay attention to this sort of thing, are know as cerebellar infarcts.
Some cases originate in cells called cerebellar granule neuron progenitors (GNPs) that do not reach their proper place in the cerebellum and fail to mature.
The 66-year-old had an incurable brain condition called cerebellar ataxia.
Activation of presynaptic cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) triggers presynaptic long-term plasticity in synapses such as cerebellar parallel fiber and hippocampal mossy fiber synapses.
It is defined by hypoplasia of the cerebellar vermis, cystic dilatation of fourth ventricle and hydrocephalus.
Without knowing how and where the individual cell bodies extend their processes it would have been very hard to have clues on the organization of the cerebellar cortex.
The extension and orientation of dendrites of the Purkinje cells provided a key for the understanding of how the cerebellar cortex is built up and works (the same could be stated for all other structures of the brain, in which how neuronal processes are arranged is the prerequisite for their functioning).
This is crucial for the functioning of the cerebellar cortex, since the axons of granule cells (called parallel fibers) coursing tangentially establish several hundred thousands of contacts with the dendrites of each Purkinje cell
