GLAST/EAAT1‐induced Glutamine release via SNAT3 in Bergmann glial cells: evidence of a functional and physical coupling
Glutamate, the major excitatory transmitter in the vertebrate brain, is removed from the synaptic cleft by a family of sodium‐dependent glutamate transporters profusely expressed in glial cells. OnceExpand
Anticancer activity of seaweeds.
Cancer is a major health problem worldwide and still lacks fully effective treatments. Therefore, alternative therapies, using natural products, have been proposed. Marine algae are an importantExpand
Common BRCA1 and BRCA2 Mutations among Latin American Breast Cancer Subjects: A Meta-Analysis
Background: Many BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations have been characterized in breast cancer subjects; however, the overall prevalence in Latin American remains elusive. The aim of the study was to determineExpand
Glutamate-dependent translational regulation in cultured Bergmann glia cells: Involvement of p70S6K
Glutamate, the main excitatory amino acid transmitter in the vertebrate brain is involved in the dynamic changes in protein repertoire that underlie synaptic plasticity. Activity-dependentExpand
Glutamate-dependent phosphorylation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) in Bergmann glial cells
Glutamate, the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system, plays an important role in neuronal development and synaptic plasticity. It activates a variety of signalingExpand
Glutamate-Dependent Transcriptional Regulation in Bergmann Glia Cells: Involvement of p38 MAP Kinase
Glutamate (Glu) is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the Central Nervous System (CNS). Ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors (GluRs) are present in neurons and glial cells and areExpand
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and its receptors in Bergmann glia cells
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is an abundant and widely distributed neurotrophin expressed in the Central Nervous System. It is critically involved in neuronal differentiation and survival. TheExpand
Signal transducers and activators of transcription 1 and 3 in prostate: effect of sexual activity.
The signal transducers and activators of transcription (Stat) are effector molecules downstream of cytokine receptors. Ligand occupancy of these receptors results in the tyrosine phosphorylation,Expand
Glutamate-Dependent BMAL1 Regulation in Cultured Bergmann Glia Cells
Glutamate, the major excitatory amino acid, activates a wide variety of signal transduction cascades. This neurotransmitter is involved in photic entrainment of circadian rhythms, which regulateExpand
Genistein as Potential Therapeutic Candidate for Menopausal Symptoms and Other Related Diseases
Plant-derived compounds have recently attracted greater interest in the field of new therapeutic agent development. These compounds have been widely screened for their pharmacological effects.Expand
