Thromboxane A2 (TXA2) is a central prostanoid in the cardiovascular system and is a crucial mediator of vascular homeostasis and platelet aggregation. In this study, we report a novel role for TXA2 in neurite outgrowth. TXA2 receptor is expressed in rat cortical neurons, and treatment with the TXA2 agonist U-46619 promotes neurite outgrowth in a(More)
The interaction of neurons with their non-neuronal milieu plays a crucial role in the formation of neural networks, and wide variety of cell-contact-dependent signals that promote neurite elongation have been identified. In this study, we found that vascular endothelial cells promote neurite elongation in an integrin β3-dependent manner. Vascular(More)
A girl developed acute agranulocytosis (45/mm3), 37 days after the onset of infectious mononucleosis. The bone marrow showed myeloid hyperplasia with maturation arrest and erythroid hypoplasia. A normal amount of colony forming units of granulocytes and macrophages (CFU-GM) colonies with a relative high number of clusters was observed. Neither(More)
