Orexin A stimulates cortisol secretion from human adrenocortical cells through activation of the adenylate cyclase-dependent signaling cascade.
Orexins A and B are two hypothalamic peptides that increase food intake and body weight and probably play a role in the sleep regulation. They act through two subtypes of G protein-coupled receptors,Expand

CD105(+) cells from Wharton's jelly show in vitro and in vivo myogenic differentiative potential.
Embryo-derived tissues, such as umbilical cord (UC), can represent attractive sources of mesenchymal stem cells because their use is not related to any ethical issue. Abundant experimental evidenceExpand

Orexins in the Regulation of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis
Orexin-A and orexin-B are hypothalamic peptides that act via two G protein-coupled receptors, named orexin type 1 and type 2 receptors (OX1-Rs and OX2-Rs). The most studied biological functions ofExpand

Homologous muscle acellular matrix seeded with autologous myoblasts as a tissue-engineering approach to abdominal wall-defect repair.
Myoblasts were obtained by culturing in vitro, single muscle fibers, isolated by enzymatic digestion from rat flexor digitorum brevis, and their phenotype was confirmed by myogenic differentiationExpand

Tracheal matrices, obtained by a detergent‐enzymatic method, support in vitro the adhesion of chondrocytes and tracheal epithelial cells
Several attemps have been performed to achieve a suitable tracheal replacement for the treatment of different conditions characterized by a lack of sufficient tissue for surgical reconstruction.Expand

Heterogeneity of Aldosterone-Producing Adenomas Revealed by a Whole Transcriptome Analysis
Aldosterone-producing adenomas (APAs) are a common cause of arterial hypertension, but the underlying molecular mechanisms are unknown, although a transcriptional modulation of aldosterone synthaseExpand

Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Proliferative and Apoptotic Activities and Reactive Oxygen Species Generation in Mouse Fibroblast 3T3/J2 Cell Line
Background Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is widely used to treat problem wounds associated with pathologic conditions compromising blood supply and tissue oxygenation because increased tissueExpand
