Considerable recent evidence suggests that in addition to its neuromodulatory role, galanin, like several other neuropeptides, also plays an important trophic role during development and after adult neural injury. Studies in our laboratory have identified high levels of galanin and galanin receptor expression in the subventricular zone, rostral migratory(More)
The effect of galanin (GAL) on neural cell proliferation was studied using PC12 and B104 cells. Reverse transcription-PCR was used to determine the expression of GAL and GAL receptors and a 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay of cell viability was employed to detect the effects of GAL on cell proliferation.

To study the effects of tetramethylpyrazine (TMP) on the proliferation of hepatic stellate cells-T6 (HSC-T6), and the expression of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) and Smad2/3 in these cells, HSC-T6 cells were cultured with TMP at different concentrations after transforming growth factor-b1 (TGF-b1) stimulation. MTT assay was used to assess the cell(More)
The effect of galanin (GAL) on neural proliferation was studied in this article using PC12 and B104 cells. RT-PCR was used to determine the expression of galanin and its receptors in both cells. MTT analysis method was employed to detect the effects of galanin and the agonist, antagonist of galanin receptors on the proliferation of both cells. Results(More)
