Cloning of novel kinectin splice variants with alternative C‐termini: Structure, distribution and evolution of mouse kinectin
The analysis of cDNA clones encoding novel variant forms of mouse kinectin, an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)‐bound receptor for the motor protein kinesin, is reported. Kinesin and cytoplasmic dynein areExpand

Developmental changes in the expression patterns of IGFs, type 1 IGF receptor and IGF-binding proteins-2 and -4 in perinatal rat lung.
The insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and IGF-II), their receptors and binding proteins (IGFBPs) are endogenously expressed in a number of tissues including the lung during fetal and neonatalExpand

NNZ-2566: A Gly–Pro–Glu analogue with neuroprotective efficacy in a rat model of acute focal stroke
The N-terminal cleavage product of human insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in the brain is the tripeptide molecule Glypromate (Gly-Pro-Glu). Glypromate has demonstrated neuroprotective effects inExpand

Fetal rat lung epithelium has a functional growth hormone receptor coupled to tyrosine kinase activity and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-2 production.
Although growth hormone (GH) receptor (GHR) mRNA and protein are present in fetal tissues such as the lung, there is little evidence that GH mediates growth in the fetus. We have identifiedExpand

Identification of kex2-related proteases in chromaffin granules by partial amino acid sequence analysis.
We have characterized glycoprotein H (GpH) from bovine adrenal medullary chromaffin granules. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis was used to purify GpH from an insoluble fraction obtained followingExpand

Central penetration and stability of N-terminal tripeptide of insulin-like growth factor-I, glycine-proline-glutamate in adult rat
Insulin-like growth factor-I is a neurotrophic factor and can prevent neurons from ischemic brain injury. However, the large molecular weight and metabolic effects can be problematic in its centralExpand

Pharmacokinetics of glycine-proline-glutamate, the N-terminal tripeptide of insulin-like growth factor-1, in rats.
Glycine-proline-glutamate (GPE) is the N-terminal tripeptide of insulin-like growth factor-1 and has been shown to be neuroprotective following ischemia-induced brain injury. The pharmacokinetics ofExpand

Perinatal Growth Disturbance in the Spontaneously Hypertensive Rat
Disproportionate fetal and placental growth are associated with the development of hypertension in the rat and human. Here we report differences in fetal, neonatal, and placental growth, and inExpand

Effects of maternal captopril treatment on growth, blood glucose and plasma insulin in the fetal spontaneously hypertensive rat.
In the spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) fetal growth and metabolism are abnormal. It has been speculated that maternal hypertension may be the cause of these abnormalities. Captopril treatment,Expand

Glucocorticoid activity in the fetal spontaneously hypertensive rat.
Fetal exposure to high concentrations of corticosteroids in the rat is associated with elevated blood pressure in postnatal life. In this study we have investigated indicators of corticosteroidExpand
