Neuronal growth-associated proteins (nGAPs) are markers of neuronal process outgrowth and are associated with both degenerative and sprouting responses in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brain. To study possible involvement of SCG10, an nGAP, in AD, we cloned human SCG10 cDNA and analyzed SCG-10 at mRNA and protein levels in control and AD brains. The deduced(More)
PinX1 (PIN2/TRF1-interacting telomerase inhibitor 1) was suggested to be correlated with tumor progression. This study was designed to evaluate the role of PinX1 in human breast cancer. To evaluate the function of PinX1 in breast cancer, we used a tissue microarray (TMA) of 405 human breast cancer patients and immunohistochemistry to analyze the correlation(More)
Expression of mRNAs encoding the dopamine transporter (DAT) and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) in dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra (SN) was examined in young and aged Fischer 344 rats by in situ hybridization. Quantitative analysis revealed a statistically significant decline in both DAT and TH mRNA expression in 24-month-old rats in comparison to(More)
