When spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs, a great number of inhibitors of axonal regeneration consecutively invade the injured site. The first protein to reach the lesion is known as semaphorin 3A (Sema3A), which serves as a powerful inhibitor of axonal regeneration. Mechanistically binding of Sem3A to the neuronal receptor complex neuropilin-1 (NRP-1) /(More)
Following spinal cord injury (SCI), semaphorin 3A (Sema3A) prevents axonal regeneration through binding to the neuropilin-1 (NRP-1)/PlexinA4 receptor complex. Here, we show that galectin-1 (Gal-1), an endogenous glycan-binding protein, selectively bound to the NRP-1/PlexinA4 receptor complex in injured neurons through a glycan-dependent mechanism,(More)
FKBP51 and FKBP52 (FK506-binding protein 51 and 52) are tetratricopeptide repeat-domain immunophilins belonging to the tetratricopeptide-protein•hsp90•hsp70•p23 heterocomplex bound to steroid receptors. Immunophilins are related to receptor folding, subcellular localization, and hormone-dependent transcription. Also, they bind the immunosuppressant(More)
The principal motor tract involved in mammalian locomotor activities is known as the corticospinal tract (CST), which starts in the brain motor cortex (upper motor neuron), extends its axons across the brain to brainstem and finally reaches different regions of spinal cord, contacting the lower motor neurons. Visualization of the CST is essential to carry(More)
UNLABELLED Axonal growth cone collapse following spinal cord injury (SCI) is promoted by semaphorin3A (Sema3A) signaling via PlexinA4 surface receptor. This interaction triggers intracellular signaling events leading to increased hydrogen peroxide levels which in turn promote filamentous actin (F-actin) destabilization and subsequent inhibition of axonal(More)
Besides outlining the methods, the inherent theory of human psychotherapy and the therapeutic goal are included in this presentation of individually important concepts of psychotherapy. Psychoanalysis explains neuroses as compromises of an intrapsychic and, at least in part unconscious conflict, in which remanent childish object relation patterns are(More)
