Deschampsia antarctica Desv. is the only monocot that thrives in the harsh conditions of the Antarctic Peninsula and represents an invaluable resource for the identification of genes associated with freezing tolerance. In order to identify genes regulated by low temperature, we have initiated a detailed analysis of its gene expression. Preliminary 2-D gels(More)
In this study we have used the transgenic mouse model Tg2576 to analyze the involvement of anomalous loss of regulation of cdk5 and the stress kinases JNK and p38 in brain neuronal death as related to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. Previous studies on hippocampal cells led us to the discovery that the cdk5/p35 complex is activated(More)
Interleukin-3 (IL-3) is an important glycoprotein involved in regulating biological responses such as cell proliferation, survival and differentiation. Its effects are mediated via interaction with cell surface receptors. Several studies have demonstrated the expression of IL-3 in neurons and astrocytes of the hippocampus and cortices in normal mouse brain,(More)
