It has been proposed that differential activation kinetics allows cells to use a common set of signaling pathways to specify distinct cellular outcomes. For example, nerve growth factor (NGF) and epidermal growth factor (EGF) induce different activation kinetics of the Raf/MEK/ERK signaling pathway and result in differentiation and proliferation,(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the eff ect and mechanism of chronic high-fat diet on predation behavior in rats. METHODS Ten female SD rats with 4-week-old were randomly divided into a normal control group (NC group, n=5) and a chronic high-fat diet group (HF group, n=5). The rats in the NC group received the regular diet while rats in the HF group were fed with(More)
Acute brain injuries such as ischemic stroke or traumatic brain injury often cause massive neural death and irreversible brain damage with grave consequences. Previous studies have established that a key participant in the events leading to neural death is the excessive production of reactive oxygen species. Protecting neuronal cells by activating their(More)
The photoreceptor cryptochrome 2 (CRY2) has become a powerful optogenetic tool that allows light-inducible manipulation of various signaling pathways and cellular processes in mammalian cells with high spatiotemporal precision and ease of application. However, it has also been shown that the behavior of CRY2 under blue light is complex, as the photoexcited(More)
