The alpha7 nicotinic receptor agonist 3-[2,4-dimethoxybenzylidene]anabaseine (DMXB; GTS-21) was investigated for its ability to: (1) activate a variety of nicotinic receptor subtypes in Xenopus oocytes; (2) improve passive avoidance and spatial Morris water task performances in mecamylamine-sensitive manners in bilaterally nucleus basalis lesioned rats; and(More)
AIM To explore different roles of TGF-beta (transforming growth factor beta) and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) in hepatic stellate cell proliferation and trans-differentiation.
