Thrombin activates immunocompetent microglia and increases release of inflammatory cytokines under intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) insults. Also, thrombin injection into the striatum evokes acute necrosis and delayed apoptosis of neurons. A nucleoprotein high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) that is released from necrotic cells has been suggested to behave like(More)
The neurotrophic effects of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) on rat sensory neuronal cell line ND7/23 cells were investigated. PACAP caused a concentration-dependent increase in the number of neurite-bearing cells and the expression of the substance P precursor (PPT) mRNA in 24 h. The effects of PACAP were mimicked by vasoactive(More)
