Neuroglobin is a recently discovered respiratory, porphyrin-containing protein that is expressed in the brain of mouse and human. However, the full-length cDNA sequence and genomic organization of human neuroglobin have not been reported. In this paper, the full-length cDNA sequence of human neuroglobin was cloned following bioinformatic analysis and the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate rat neuroglobin (rNGB) expression level after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and further study its neuroprotective effects in TBI when it was overexpressed in adenoviral vector. METHODS The Wistar rats (280-320 g) were divided into control, 12 and 36 hours after TBI groups (n = 3) and their TBI model was(More)
Cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) insults result in neuronal cell death, brain tissue loss, and severe neurological deficits. However, the underlying mechanism is still not fully understood. Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) A2/B1 belongs to a family of RNA-binding proteins that plays a central role in pre-mRNA processing. Recent studies(More)
Neuroglobin (NGB) is a recently discovered globin, which is widely expressed in vertebrates central and peripheral nervous systems. Previous studies have shown that NGB is important in protecting neurons from hypoxic/ischemic brain injuries. However, there are no reports on the neuroprotective effects of NGB after mechanical injury. Currently, we showed(More)
Neuroglobin (NGB) is a recently identified protein, which is localized in the neurons and retinal cells of the central and peripheral nervous systems in vertebrates. It is hypothesized to function as a scavenger for reactive oxygen species, or as a stress-responsive sensor for signal transduction in hypoxic-ischemic brain insults. However, the mechanism(More)
