The effect of single or repeated restraint stress on several signal molecules in the hypothalamus was studied in ICR mice. Single restraint stress was induced for 30, 60, and 120 min. A repeated restraint stress was induced for 2 h daily during four consecutive days, and then induced in the same time course on the fifth day. In the immunoblot assay, we(More)
Brain tauopathies are characterized by abnormal processing of tau protein. While somatodendritic tau mislocalization has attracted considerable attention in tauopathies, the role of tau pathology in axonal transport, connectivity and related dysfunctions remains obscure. We have previously shown using the squid giant synapse that presynaptic microinjection(More)
Many types of injury such as seizure, ischemia, and oxidative stress cause upregulation of the p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75(NTR)) in brain neurons, where it promotes apoptosis, however the mechanism by which p75(NTR) is regulated under these conditions is not well understood. Proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-1β (IL-1β) are highly produced(More)
We examined proopiomelanocortin (POMC) mRNA and beta-endorphin expression in the hypothalamus of mice after various nociceptive stimuli. The time-course study (10 min, 30 min, 1 h, 2 h, and 10 h) showed that the POMC mRNA level significantly increases from 1 h after s.c. formalin injection and returns to the control level at 10 h. Intrathecal (i.t.)(More)
