Systemic interleukin-1 (IL-1) activates the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, an effect exerted through increased synthesis and secretion of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) by parvicellular neurosecretory neurons. The site(s) and mechanism(s) through which circulating IL-1 may access central systems governing HPA axis output remain obscure. To(More)
Glutamine synthetase (GS) is an enzyme involved in an endogenous mechanism of protection against glutamate neurotoxicity and is important in the regulation of astrocyte migration. To date, limited information is available concerning the expression of GS in normal spinal cords and following injury. In the present study, GS expression was identified in(More)
Our recent study demonstrated that glutamine synthetase (GS) may not only serve as a glutamate-converting enzyme in glial cells, but may also function as a regulator of astrocyte migration after injury. In this report, we showed that GS expression increased in cultured rat C6 glioma cells that underwent long-term serially propagation. The stable(More)
Epidemiological studies suggest that higher serum uric acid (sUA) level is significantly associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) development. However, little information is available on the relationships between sUA and NAFLD remission. In the present study, 841 NAFLD males (30-75 years) were recruited from a Chinese prospective cohort(More)
