Stimulation of cannabinoid CB1 receptors or inhibition of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in the dorsolateral periaqueductal gray (dlPAG) decreases anxiety-like behavior. Moreover, activation of CB1 receptors attenuates flight responses induced by nitric oxide (NO) donors in the dlPAG, suggesting that endocannabinoids and NO could interact to control defensive(More)
Connective-tissue growth factor (CTGF) is a modular secreted protein implicated in multiple cellular events such as chondrogenesis, skeletogenesis, angiogenesis and wound healing. CTGF contains four different structural modules. This modular organization is characteristic of members of the CCN family. The acronym was derived from the first three members(More)
