Kiss1-/- mice exhibit more variable hypogonadism than Gpr54-/- mice.
The G protein-coupled receptor Gpr54 and its ligand metastin (derived from the Kiss1 gene product kisspeptin) are key gatekeepers of sexual maturation. Gpr54 knockout mice demonstrateExpand

Preconditioning enhances cell survival and differentiation of stem cells during transplantation in infarcted myocardium.
AIMS We hypothesized that preconditioning (PC) with stromal-derived factor 1 alpha (SDF-1) significantly enhances cell survival, proliferation, and engraftment of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stemExpand

Cocaine-Induced Intracellular Signaling and Gene Expression Are Oppositely Regulated by the Dopamine D1 and D3 Receptors
Repeated exposure to cocaine can induce neuroadaptations in the brain. One mechanism by which persistent changes occur involves alterations in gene expression mediated by the dopamine receptors. BothExpand

c-Fos Facilitates the Acquisition and Extinction of Cocaine-Induced Persistent Changes
Development of drug addiction involves persistent neurobiological changes. The dopamine D1 receptor is involved in mediating cocaine-induced neuroadaptation, yet the underlying intracellularExpand

BRAF-activated long non-coding RNA contributes to colorectal cancer migration by inducing epithelial-mesenchymal transition
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are recently identified regulators in tumorigenesis and tumour progression. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functionalExpand
