Our previous data indicated that hypoxic preconditioning (HPC) ameliorates transient global cerebral ischemia (tGCI)-induced neuronal death in hippocampal CA1 subregion of adult rats. However, the possible molecular mechanisms for neuroprotection of this kind are largely unknown. This study was performed to investigate the role of the mitogen-activated(More)
The intra-islet insulin hypothesis proposes that the decrement in beta-cell insulin secretion during hypoglycemia provides an activation signal for alpha-cells to release glucagon. A more recent hypothesis proposes that zinc atoms suppress glucagon secretion via their ability to open alpha-cell ATP-sensitive K(+) channels. Since insulin binds zinc, and zinc(More)
Postconditioning has regenerated interest as a mechanical intervention against cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury, but its molecular mechanisms remain unknown. We previously reported that hypoxic postconditioning (HPC) ameliorated neuronal death induced by transient global cerebral ischemia (tGCI) in hippocampal CA1 subregion of adult rats. This study(More)
Our purpose was to investigate the effect of 3-deazaneplanocin A (DZNep) on human T-cell acute lymphoid leukemia (T-ALL) cells, and to explore the underlying molecular mechanisms. The human T-ALL cell line Molt4 was treated with DZNep, and cell proliferation was examined. The expression of Mps one binder kinase activator 1 gene (MOB1) mRNA and protein was(More)
