The molecular mechanisms responsible for differential neuronal vulnerability to ischemic injury are incompletely understood. Previous studies have reported that the expression and activity of protein kinase C (PKC), some subtypes of which are activated by Ca(2+) and diacylglycerol (DG), are altered after ischemic insults. Therefore, DG kinase (DGK), which(More)
Diacylglycerol kinase (DGK) is an enzyme that phosphorylates a second messenger diacylglycerol (DG) and is involved in a variety of pathophysiological cellular responses. We have previously reported that DGKzeta may be involved in the selective vulnerability of hippocampal CA1 neurons in transient forebrain ischemia. In this study we aimed to further(More)
OBJECT Neural stem cells (NSCs) have been demonstrated in the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricle and the subgranular zone of the hippocampal dentate gyrus (DG). Although aging rats manifest a decrease in NSCs, rats exposed to stress (for example, ischemia, epilepsy, radiation, and trauma) show an increase in these cells. In transgenic mice,(More)
