Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) has been shown to exert a target-derived trophic factor for motor neurons. Immunohistochemical analyses revealed that expression of GDNF in regeneration muscle fibers was up-regulated in polymyositis (PM) and Duchenne type muscular dystrophy (DMD). Reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)(More)
Scatter factor/hepatocyte growth factor (SF/HGF) and its tyrosine kinase receptor c-met are developmentally expressed, neuroprotective, and tumorigenic within the CNS. In the present study SF/HGF is shown to induce the expression of c-met in two human glioblastoma cell lines, U-373 MG and T98G, and the signaling pathways involved in this induction are(More)
Synaptic vesicle fusion events are essential for synaptic transmission. Membrane docking and fusion events are highly regulated processes requiring the participation of a large number of soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factors (SNAREs) and SNARE-interacting proteins. We report the neuronal expression of mammalian homologue of vacuolar protein sorting 16(More)
Membrane docking and fusion in neurons is a highly regulated process requiring the participation of a large number of SNAREs (soluble N-ethylmaleimide sensitive factor attachment protein receptors) and SNARE-interacting proteins. We found that mammalian Class C Vps protein complex associated specifically with nSec-1/Munc18-a, and syntaxin 1A both in vivo(More)
