Pre- and post-treatments with escitalopram protect against experimental ischemic neuronal damage via regulation of BDNF expression and oxidative stress
Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI) have been widely used in treatment of major depression because of their efficacy, safety, and tolerability. Escitalopram, an SSRI, is known to decreaseExpand

Mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid receptor expressions in astrocytes and microglia in the gerbil hippocampal CA1 region after ischemic insult
In the present study, we observed expression and changes of mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) and glucocorticoid receptor (GR) in the gerbil hippocampal CA1 region, but not in the CA2/3 region, after 5Expand

Ischemia‐induced changes in glucagon‐like peptide‐1 receptor and neuroprotective effect of its agonist, exendin‐4, in experimental transient cerebral ischemia
Glucagon‐like peptide‐1 receptor (GLP‐1R) protects against neuronal damages in the brain. In the present study, ischemia‐induced changes in GLP‐1R immunoreactivity in the gerbil hippocampal CA1Expand

Reduced Cell Proliferation and Neuroblast Differentiation in the Dentate Gyrus of High Fat Diet-Fed Mice are Ameliorated by Metformin and Glimepiride Treatment
We investigated the effects of a high-fat diet (HFD) and the subsequent treatment of metformin (met) and glimepiride (glim), which are widely prescribed for type 2 diabetes, on cell proliferation andExpand

Topical transduction of superoxide dismutase mediated by HIV-1 Tat protein transduction domain ameliorates 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced inflammation in mice.
A domain (RKKRRQRRR) derived from HIV-1 Tat is one of the most efficient protein transduction domains (PTD) for delivering macromolecules including proteins into cells and tissues. AntioxidantExpand

Ionized Calcium-binding Adapter Molecule 1 Immunoreactive Cells Change in the Gerbil Hippocampal CA1 Region after Ischemia/Reperfusion
Ionized calcium-binding adapter molecule 1 (iba-1) is specifically expressed in microglia and plays an important role in the regulation of the function of microglia. We observed chronological changesExpand

Expression and changes of endogenous insulin-like growth factor-1 in neurons and glia in the gerbil hippocampus and dentate gyrus after ischemic insult
In the present study, we focused upon expression and changes of endogenous insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in the hippocampus of the Mongolian gerbil after ischemic insult. In sham-operatedExpand
