The role of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and its mechanism of action are important from both pathogenic and therapeutic points of view. The present study investigated the changes of IGF-1Rbeta and the key intracellular downstream protein insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1) by using SOD1(G93A) transgenic mice(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is reported to play a neuroprotective role through a VEGF receptor, fetal liver kinase-1 (Flk-1) in vitro. We investigated whether reduction of Flk-1 could induce motor neuron loss in rat spinal cord by inhibiting the expression of Flk-1 in rat spinal cord using antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) against the(More)
