Individual neurons dissected from immunohistochemically stained paraffin sections of the developing rat geniculate (VIIth cranial) ganglion were assayed for their content of mRNA of the neurotrophin receptor genes, p75 , trkA , trkB and trkC. Fetal and postnatal rats, from the 13th embryonic day (E13) until the 20th postnatal day (P20), were used. Single(More)
The mechanisms that coordinate the final mitotic divisions of terminally differentiated bone marrow (BM) erythroid cells with components of their structural and functional maturation program remain largely undefined. We previously identified phenotypes resembling those found in early-stage myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), including ineffective(More)
Two widely used antipsychotic drugs, chlorpromazine (CPZ) and trifluoperazine (TFZ) inhibit NADPH-induced microsomal lipid peroxidation (LPO). Study of microsomal membrane fluidity revealed considerable disorganization in its architecture in the presence of NADPH, which can be restored back in the presence of CPZ and TFZ. NADPH-dependent microsomal LPO is(More)
Constitutive fibroblast activation is responsible for organ fibrosis in fibrotic disorders including systemic sclerosis (SSc), but the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood, and effective therapies are lacking. We investigated the expression of the mitochondrial deacetylase sirtuin 3 (SIRT3) and its modulation by hexafluoro, a novel fluorinated(More)
