Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of the neurotrophins, promotes differentiation and survival of various types of neurons in the central nervous system. BDNF binds to and activates the tyrosine kinase receptor, TrkB, initiating intracellular signaling and exerting its effects. Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-K), which has been implicated(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) activates a variety of signaling molecules to exert various functions in the nervous system, including neuronal differentiation, survival, and regulation of synaptic plasticity. Previously, we have suggested that BIT/SHPS-1 (brain immunoglobulin-like molecule with tyrosine-based activation motifs/SHP substrate 1) is(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of the neurotrophins, promotes differentiation and survival and regulates plasticity of various types of neurons. BDNF binds to TrkB, a receptor tyrosine kinase, which results in the activation of a variety of signaling molecules to exert the various functions of BDNF. Shp-2, a Src homology 2(More)
Circadian rhythms of mammals are generated by a circadian oscillation of master pacemaker genes in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus (SCN), and entrained by environmental factors such as 24-h light-dark cycles. We have previously shown that light exposure during the dark period enhanced tyrosine phosphorylation of brain immunoglobulin-like(More)
Shp2, a protein tyrosine phosphatase possessing SH2 domains, is utilized in the intracellular signaling of various growth factors. Shp2 is highly expressed in the CNS. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a member of the neurotrophin family, which also shows high levels of expression in the CNS, exerts neurotrophic and neuromodulatory effects in CNS(More)
BIT (brain immunoglobulin-like molecule with tyrosine-based activation motifs) is a membrane glycoprotein that has two cytoplasmic TAMs (tyrosine-based activation motifs). We previously reported that tyrosine-phosphorylated TAMs of BIT interact with the Src homology 2 domain-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase SHP-2 both in vitro and in transfected(More)
