Neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus of adult rodents is regulated by NMDA receptors, adrenal steroids, environmental stimuli, and seizures. To determine whether ischemia affects neurogenesis, newly divided cells in the dentate gyrus were examined after transient global ischemia in adult gerbils. 5-Bromo-2'-deoxyuridine-5'-monophosphate (BrdU)(More)
HIF-1 is a heterodimeric transcription factor, induced by hypoxia, that is composed of HIF-1alpha and HIF-1beta protein subunits. It binds to promoter/enhancer elements and stimulates the transcription of hypoxia-inducible target genes, including glucose transporter-1 and the glycolytic enzymes. Because HIF-1 activation might promote cell survival in(More)
Global ischemia causes an extensive cell death 3 days after the ischemia in the CA1 region of the hippocampus, which is preceded by induction of a spectrum of genes with both neuroprotective and detrimental properties. This delayed cell death has been suggested to be mainly caused by programmed cell death. Here we applied differential display to(More)
