Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate (FBP) has been shown to attenuate central nervous system injury in adult animals. We evaluated whether FBP given after an ischemic-hypoxic insult is protective to the developing brain in a neonatal rat model of hypoxia-ischemia. Postnatal day 7 rat pups were subjected to focal ischemia followed by global hypoxia and then(More)
The dominant mode of intracellular Ca(2+) release in adult mammalian heart is gated by ryanodine receptors (RyRs), but it is less clear whether inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3))-gated Ca(2+) release channels (IP(3)Rs), which are important during embryogenesis, play a significant role during early postnatal development. To address this question, we(More)
