Macrophage depletion suppresses sympathetic hyperinnervation following myocardial infarction
Myocardial infarction induces sympathetic axon sprouting adjacent to the necrotic region, and this has been implicated in the etiology of arrhythmias resulting in sudden cardiac death. PreviousExpand

β-Adrenoceptor Blockers Increase Cardiac Sympathetic Innervation by Inhibiting Autoreceptor Suppression of Axon Growth
β-Adrenoceptor antagonists are used widely to reduce cardiovascular sympathetic tone, but withdrawal is accompanied by sympathetic hyperactivity. Receptor supersensitivity accounts for some but notExpand

Neuronal cytoskeletal gene dysregulation and mechanical hypersensitivity in a rat model of Rett syndrome
Significance Cutaneous sensitivity appears to be abnormal in Rett syndrome and other autistic disorders. Using rats with disrupted methyl-CpG binding protein 2 (MeCP2) expression characteristic ofExpand

A Local Inflammatory Renin-Angiotensin System Drives Sensory Axon Sprouting in Provoked Vestibulodynia.
Vestibulodynia is a form of provoked vulvodynia characterized by profound tenderness, hyperinnervation, and frequently inflammation within well-defined areas of the human vestibule. PreviousExpand

Trophic factor and hormonal regulation of neurite outgrowth in sensory neuron-like 50B11 cells
Sensory axon integrity and regenerative capacity are important considerations in understanding neuropathological conditions characterized by hyper- or insensitivity. However, our knowledge ofExpand

Cell type-specific transcriptional programs in mouse prefrontal cortex during adolescence and addiction
Coordinated activity-induced transcriptional changes across multiple neuron subtypes of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) play a pivotal role in encoding and regulating major cognitive behaviors. Yet, theExpand

Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4 Mediates Estrogen-Regulated Sensory Axon Plasticity in the Adult Female Reproductive Tract
Peripheral axons are structurally plastic even in the adult, and altered axon density is implicated in many disorders and pain syndromes. However, mechanisms responsible for peripheral axonExpand

Circadian mPer1 gene expression in mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus cultures
The circadian timing system includes the major circadian pacemaker in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus and less well characterized circadian pacemakers in the brain andExpand

Motor, Somatosensory, Viscerosensory and Metabolic Impairments in a Heterozygous Female Rat Model of Rett Syndrome
Rett Syndrome (RTT), an autism-related disorder caused by mutation of the X-linked Methyl CpG-binding Protein 2 (MECP2) gene, is characterized by severe cognitive and intellectual deficits. WhileExpand

Comparative Blood Cell Morphometry and Differential Leukocyte Count of Two Breeds of Turkey, Meleagris gallopavo (Linnaeus, 1758)
Morphometry of erythrocytes and leukocytes and differential leukocyte count of two breeds of adult turkey (24 birds) were performed with respect to sexual dimorphism. Except nuclear length ofExpand
