Transient receptor potential (TRP) genes encode a family of related ion-channel subunits. This family consists of cation-selective, calcium-permeable channels that include a group of vanilloid receptor channels (TRPV) implicated in pain and inflammation. These channels are activated by diverse stimuli, including capsaicin, lipids, membrane deformation,(More)
The growth factor family of neurotrophins has major roles both inside and outside the nervous system. Here, we report a detailed histological analysis of key phenotypes generated by the ablation of the Kinase D interacting substrate of 220 kDa/Ankyrin repeat-rich membrane spanning (Kidins220/ARMS) protein, a membrane-anchored scaffold for the neurotrophin(More)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia is generally regarded as being a hormone-dependent disorder. The inductive action of stromal elements on the glandular epithelium and the demonstrable estrogen sensitivity of the stroma suggest that estrogens may play a role in the etiology of prostatic hyperplasia. This hypothesis forms the theoretical basis for the proposed(More)
