The orphan nuclear receptor NURR1 was previously demonstrated to be required for the generation of mesencephalic dopamine (DA) cells. However, even in the absence of NURR1, which is normally expressed as cells become postmitotic, neuronal differentiation is induced and expression of several genes detected in developing dopamine cells appears normal during(More)
Transgenic mice lacking the nuclear orphan transcription factor Nur-related receptor 1 (Nurr1) fail to develop mesencephalic dopamine neurons. There is a highly homologous NURR1 gene in humans (formerly known as NOT) which therefore constitutes a good candidate gene for neurologic and psychiatric disorders with an involvement of the dopamine neuron system,(More)
Nurr1, a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily, was recently demonstrated to be of critical importance in the developing central nervous system, where it is required for the generation of midbrain dopamine cells. Nuclear receptors encompass a transcriptional activation function (activation function 2; AF2) within their carboxyl-terminal domains(More)
Bank voles are known reservoirs for Puumala hantavirus and probably also for Ljungan virus (LV), a suggested candidate parechovirus in type 1 diabetes etiology and pathogenesis. The aim of this study was to determine whether wild bank voles had been exposed to LV and if exposure associated to autoantibodies against insulin (IAA), glutamic acid decarboxylase(More)
Papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) is the second most common type of renal cell carcinoma. The only curative treatment available for pRCC is radical surgery. If the disease becomes widespread, neither chemo- nor radiotherapy will have therapeutic effect, hence further research on pRCC is of utmost importance. Histologically, pRCC is characterized by a(More)
