Precursor cells of the embryonic cortex sequentially generate neurons and then glial cells, but the mechanisms regulating this neurogenic-to-gliogenic transition are unclear. Using cortical precursor cultures, which temporally mimic this in vivo differentiation pattern, we demonstrate that cortical neurons synthesize and secrete the neurotrophic cytokine(More)
Integrated sediment multiproxy studies and modeling were used to reconstruct past changes in the Baltic Sea ecosystem. Results of natural changes over the past 6000 years in the Baltic Sea ecosystem suggest that forecasted climate warming might enhance environmental problems of the Baltic Sea. Integrated modeling and sediment proxy studies reveal increased(More)
Clopidogrel is an effective and specific inhibitor of ADP-induced platelet aggregation. After metabolic activation, the active clopidogrel metabolite irreversibly impairs the human platelet P2Y12 ADP receptor. Gialpha-protein activation and inhibition of vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP) phosphorylation are two key elements of the P2Y12 receptor(More)
