Decreased expression of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in rat dorsal root ganglion following complete Freund's adjuvant-induced inflammation: an immunocytochemical study for NMDA NR1 subunit
The changes in expression of NMDA NR1, an essential functional subunit of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, were examined in the rat lumbar dorsal root ganglion (DRG) by immunocytochemicalExpand

Hydrogen-rich saline prevents neointima formation after carotid balloon injury by suppressing ROS and the TNF-α/NF-κB pathway.
BACKGROUND Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a pivotal role in neointima hyperplasia after balloon injury. Molecular hydrogen has emerged as a novel antioxidant and has been proven effective inExpand

Silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1) promotes the migration and proliferation of endothelial progenitor cells through the PI3K/Akt/eNOS signaling pathway.
Silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1) mediates many effects of caloric restriction (CR) on an organism's lifespan and metabolic pathways. Recent reports have also emphasized its role in vascularExpand

Lipopolysaccharide increases IL‐6 secretion via activation of the ERK1/2 signaling pathway to up‐regulate RANKL gene expression in MLO‐Y4 cells
Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) plays an important role in bone resorption, which involves numerous cytokines through various signaling pathways. RANKL and interleukin (IL)‐6 are two important cytokinesExpand
