Orexin A stimulates cortisol secretion from human adrenocortical cells through activation of the adenylate cyclase-dependent signaling cascade.
The findings suggest that orexins selectively stimulate glucocorticoid secretion from human adrenocortical cells, acting through OX1-R coupled with the adenylate cyclase-dependent signaling pathway. Expand
CD105(+) cells from Wharton's jelly show in vitro and in vivo myogenic differentiative potential.
These observations provide the first demonstration that CD105(+)/CD31(-)/KDR(-) cells are able not only to differentiate in vivo towards the myogenic lineage, but also to contribute to the muscle regenerative process. Expand

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.
The present results indicate that autologous myoblast-homologous acellular muscle matrix constructs are a promising tool for body-wall defect repair, and studies are under way to identify strategies able to improve and maintain the structural and functional integrity of implants for longer periods.

Tracheal matrices, obtained by a detergent‐enzymatic method, support in vitro the adhesion of chondrocytes and tracheal epithelial cells
The results indicate that the detergent‐enzymatic method allows us to obtain tracheal matrices which can function as a promising support to achieve an in vitro tissue‐engineered cell‐matrix construct. Expand
Heterogeneity of Aldosterone-Producing Adenomas Revealed by a Whole Transcriptome Analysis
Evidence supports a role of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinases (CAMKs) in the regulation of angiotensin II- and potassium-stimulated aldosterone production and whether the molecular signature of APA carries prognostic information is worth further investigation. Expand
Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Proliferative and Apoptotic Activities and Reactive Oxygen Species Generation in Mouse Fibroblast 3T3/J2 Cell Line
This investigation investigated the effects of HBO on the growth and ROS production of the 3T3/J2 fibroblast cell line in relation to the pressure and the duration of exposure to find that all of the exposure periods to HBO at 1.0 ATA or 30- and 60-minute periods at 2.5 ATA enhance cell growth, whereas shorter exposure times were ineffective.
