26439639 Vglut2 and oligodendrocyte progenitor cells co-localize in multiple sclerosis lesions, supporting evidence that neuronal activity and release of glutamate instruct OPCs to differentiate into new myelinating oligodendrocytes that recover lost function.
26386900 This study demonstrated that Protein levels of vGLUT2 were significantly increased in schizophrenia subjects compared to controls.
25319702 Itch is regulated by VGLUT2-mediated transmission in neurons via Trpv1.
25319687 There is a glutamatergic signal from ventral tegmental area VGluT2-habenular neurons that plays a role in aversive conditioning.
22684983 This study demonistrated that Distribution of vesicular glutamate transporter 2 (VGluT2) in the primary visual cortex(V1 area)
22510271 Data indicate that GABAergic axons were labeled with vesicular inhibitory aa transporter (VIAAT) antibodies, whereas glutamatergic axons were detected with antisera against the major vesicular glutamate transporter (VGLUT) isoforms, VGLUT1 and VGLUT2.
20541370 This study may lend support to the multiple rare mutations hypothesis of schizophrenia, and may provide genetic clues to indicate the involvement of the glutamate transmission pathway in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia.
20541370 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20540360 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19839996 This study decreased VGLUT2 mRNA expression in major depressive disorder in the middle temporal gyrus, and increased VGLUT2 mRNA expression in schizophrenia in the inferior temporal gyrus.
19156168 Clinical trial of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19086053 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18562601 VGluT2 is the only vesicular glutamate transporter expressed in transgenic ventral tegmental area/substantia nigra dopamine neurons in vivo.
18155679 Vesicular glutamate transporter 2 was unchanged at both levels of gene expression.
18050306 higher in tendinosis tendons compared to normal tendons
17660252 Docking and homology modeling explain the inhibition of VGLUT2.
17531353 Our results suggest that VGLUT1 expression in the prefrontal cortex could be used as a valuable neurochemical marker of dementia in AD.
