To investigate the immunogenicity and encephalitogenicity of oligodendrocyte-specific protein (OSP), recombinant soluble mouse OSP (smOSP) was produced from a synthetic gene engineered to lack the sequences coding for the hydrophobic transmembrane domains of the native molecule. SmOSP was immunogenic and encephalitogenic for SJL/J, C3H.SW and C57BL/6J mice,(More)
Stem cell therapy may provide a novel therapeutic method for the replacement and regeneration of damaged neural cells in the central nervous system. However, insufficient stem cell migrating into the injured regions limits its applications. Although tetramethylpyrazine (TMP) originally isolated from Ligusticum walliichi (Chuanxiong) has been widely used to(More)
