Endothelial dysfunction triggers early pathological changes in vessel walls, potentially leading to the formation of cerebral aneurysm (CA). Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are critical in repairing damaged endothelium and could prevent or slow CA formation. We hypothesize that erythropoietin (EPO) stimulates EPCs mobilization, could alter the rate of(More)
Carcinoma of the uterine cervix is a common malignancy among women that has been found to show loss of heterozygosity in the chromosome 11p. Recent studies have localized the TSG101 gene in this region, and also demonstrated a high frequency of abnormalities of this gene in human breast cancer. To determine the role of the TSG101 gene in the carcinogenesis(More)
Morphological studies have shown that the globus pallidus receives dopaminergic innervation from the collaterals of nigrostriatal fibers. Dopamine D1-like receptors are expressed at both pre- and postsynaptic membrane. In the present study, we investigate the in vivo electrophysiological and behavioral effects of pallidal dopamine D1-like receptors in(More)
