Although prostaglandin (PG)D2 is one of the main metabolites of the cyclooxygenase (COX) pathway of arachidonate metabolism in the brain, relatively little is known about the regulation of PGD2 biosynthesis in the spinal cord during systemic inflammation. Therefore, the present study was aimed at investigating the effect of endotoxin treatment on spinal(More)
Systemic inflammation leads to increased expression of spinal cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 and to a subsequent increase of prostaglandin (PG) biosynthesis, which contribute to the development of hyperalgesia and allodynia. In this study, endotoxin caused a sequential induction of membrane bound prostaglandin E synthase-1 and lipocalin-type PGD synthase (L-PGDS)(More)
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) participates in the host response to injury and infection in the central nervous system (CNS). We identified strawberry notch homolog 2 (Sbno2) as an IL-6-stimulated gene in murine astrocytes. Sbno2 is a mouse homolog of the sno gene in Drosophila but little is known about the regulation or function of the mammalian gene. Here we(More)
