The ability of the sulfonylurea receptor (SUR) 1 to suppress seizures and excitotoxic neuron damage was assessed in mice transgenically overexpressing this receptor. Fertilized eggs from FVB mice were injected with a construct containing SUR cDNA and a calcium-calmodulin kinase IIalpha promoter. The resulting mice showed normal gross anatomy, brain(More)
Several lines of evidence support an important role for the insulin-like growth factor system in breast cancer. Alterations in insulin-like growth factor I receptor (IGF-IR) have been associated with breast cancer metastasis; however, the specific role played by the IGF-IR in this process remains unclear. To address this issue, we evaluated MCF-7 breast(More)
The role of the K-ATP channel pore-forming subunit Kir6.2 on protection from cerebral hypoxic-ischemic injury was assessed in transgenic mice overexpressing normal Kir6.2 or a dominant negative form (AFA) of this subunit in the forebrain. The resulting mice overexpress either the Kir6.2 or the AFA transgene mainly in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus. The(More)
