Neurotrophin-4 selectively promotes survival of striatal neurons in organotypic slice culture
The neurotrophins (NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4) provide trophic support to subpopulations of neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems. We examined organotypic slices of neonatal mouseExpand

Localization of Angiopoietin-1 and Tie2 Immunoreactivity in Rodent Ependyma and Adjacent Blood Vessels Suggests Functional Relationships
Angiopoietin-1 (Angpt1; previously Ang-1) participates in vascular maintenance and remodeling. In the current study, we investigated the distribution of Angpt1 protein in rat brain. We detectedExpand

Cocaine mediated apoptosis of vascular cells as a mechanism for carotid artery dissection leading to ischemic stroke.
In arterial dissection, blood may enter the arterial wall through an intimal tear, splitting the arterial wall and activating the coagulation cascade at the site of endothelial damage. Dissection ofExpand
