The expression of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) in rat adrenocorticotropin (ACTH)-containing neurons in rat brain was immunohistochemically investigated. ACTH-containing cell bodies were found mainly in the arcuate nucleus. Most of these neurons exhibited GR immunoreactivities in their nuclei. ACTH-containing nerve fibers were distributed in the bed nucleus(More)
We immunohistochemically studied the distribution of nucleoporin p62 in the hippocampus and hypothalamus of rat brain. Previous reports have shown the presence of p62-immunoreactivity (ir) in the nuclear rim in the non-neuronal cells, but the present study showed that of p62-ir within the nucleus in addition to the nuclear rim in the neuronal cells of the(More)
Activated microglia were considered to be the toxic inflammatory mediators that induce neuron degeneration after brain ischemia. Hypoxia can enhance the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) in microglia and cause microglial activation. However, intermittent hypoxia has been reported recently to be capable of protecting the body from myocardial(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) can regulate the progression of various cancers, while their roles in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are not well known. Our present study investigated the expression of class I HDACs (HDAC1, 2, 3, 8) in GBM U87, A172, U251, and LN229 cells and compared their levels with that in primary normal human astrocytes (NHA) cells.
