Peripheral benzodiazepine receptors are colocalized with activated microglia following transient global forebrain ischemia in the rat
In mammalian brain the expression of peripheral benzodiazepine receptors (PBRs) can be markedly induced following different types of neuronal injury. PBRs are believed to be expressed on non-neuronalExpand

Cytosolic Phospholipase A2(cPLA2) Immunoreactivity Is Elevated in Alzheimer's Disease Brain
Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) is the key enzyme that initiates the arachidonic acid cascade, which leads to the generation of multiple eicosanoid products. Many of these products are believed to play anExpand

Transcription Factor Nuclear Factor-Kappa B is Activated in Neurons after Focal Cerebral Ischemia
Nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB) is a multisubunit transcription factor that when activated induces the expression of genes encoding acute-phase proteins, cell adhesion molecules, cell surfaceExpand

Dopamine depletion protects striatal neurons from ischemia-induced cell death.
Infusion of the dopamine neurotoxin 6-hydroxydopamine, unilaterally into the substantia nigra of rats, resulted in a unilateral depletion of dopamine in the ipsilateral striatum. When these rats wereExpand

Amyloid precursor protein accumulates in regions of neurodegeneration following focal cerebral ischemia in the rat
The distribution of beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP) was examined immunocytochemically in rats subjected to focal cerebral ischemia by permanent occlusion of the middle cerebral artery. At 4 andExpand

Global ischemia activates nuclear factor-kappa B in forebrain neurons of rats.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE After global ischemia, brain levels of hydrogen peroxide, oxygen radicals, and the cytokines tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta) areExpand

Effects of a new antiestrogen, keoxifene (LY156758), on growth of carcinogen-induced mammary tumors and on LH and prolactin levels.
Keoxifene (LY156758) is a new benzothiophene-derived antiestrogen with an extremely low degree of estrogenicity. Administration of 1-20 mg/kg per day inhibited the growth of 7,Expand

Antiestrogens. 2. Structure-activity studies in a series of 3-aroyl-2-arylbenzo[b]thiophene derivatives leading to [6-hydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)benzo[b]thien-3-yl]
In an effort to prepare nonsteroidal antiestrogens demonstrating greater antagonism and less intrinsic estrogenicity than those currently available, a series of 3-aroyl-2-arylbenzo[b]thiopheneExpand
