Magnolol has neurotrophic effects in primary cultured rat cortical neurons, which are expressed as the promotion of neurite outgrowth and neuronal survival. In this study, we investigated the protective effect of magnolol against age-related neuronal loss in the hippocampus using senescence-accelerated mouse (SAMP1). Magnolol (5, 10 mg/kg) was orally(More)
Honokiol, a main biphenyl neolignan of the traditional crude medicine, Magnoliae cortex, was found to show neurotrophic activity on the cultures of rat cortical neurons at concentration from 0.1 to 10 microM. In the cortical neurons cultured in serum-free medium supplemented with B27, honokiol could promote neurite outgrowth. In addition, the survival and(More)
We report here a novel role for Jun dimerization protein-2 (JDP2) as a regulator of the progression of normal cells through the cell cycle. To determine the role of JDP2 in vivo, we generated Jdp2-knockout (Jdp2KO) mice by targeting exon-1 to disrupt the site of initiation of transcription. The epidermal thickening of skin from the Jdp2KO mice after(More)
