ABC transporters, neural stem cells and neurogenesis – a different perspective
Stem cells intrigue. They have the ability to divide exponentially, recreate the stem cell compartment, as well as create differentiated cells to generate tissues. Therefore, they should be naturalExpand

Characterization of optimized production, purification and application of laccase from Ganoderma lucidum
Abstract We show for the first-time Ganoderma lucidum laccase enzyme production using medium containing 3% (v/v) ethanol, which enhanced the enzyme production up to 14.1 folds. A more than 400-foldsExpand

Phenotyping of an in vitro model of ischemic penumbra by iTRAQ-based shotgun quantitative proteomics.
Cerebral ischemia is a major cause of death and long-term disability worldwide. Ischemic penumbra, the electrically silent but metabolically viable perifocal brain tissue, is the target for the muchExpand

NF-kappaB regulates B-cell-derived nerve growth factor expression.
In the mammalian brain, four neurotrophins have been identified: nerve growth factor (NGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) and neurotrophin-4/5 (NT-4/5). NGF exertsExpand

Neurotrophin Signaling and Stem Cells—Implications for Neurodegenerative Diseases and Stem Cell Therapy
Neurotrophins (NTs) are members of a neuronal growth factor protein family whose action is mediated by the tropomyosin receptor kinase (TRK) receptor family receptors and the p75 NT receptorExpand
