BACKGROUND Suppressor of cytokine signaling-1 and -3 (SOCS-1 and SOCS-3) are two important negative regulators in the insulin-signaling pathway, and their overexpression may aggravate insulin resistance. Subjects with insulin resistance are often obese and have increased expressions of SOCS-1 and SOCS-3. We speculated that SOCS-1 and SOCS-3 may be involved(More)
Maternal intrauterine inflammation or infection is an important risk factor for neonatal cerebral white matter injury (WMI) and future neurological deficits. Activated protein C (APC), a natural anticoagulant, has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic, profibrinolytic and cytoprotective activities. Recent studies have demonstrated that the(More)
Activated protein C (APC), a natural anticoagulant, has been reported to exert direct vasculoprotective, neural protective, anti-inflammatory, and proneurogenic activities in the central nervous system. This study was aimed to explore the neuroprotective effects and potential mechanisms of APC on the neurovascular unit of neonatal rats with intrauterine(More)
