Previously, we have shown that short-term (1 hr) separation of neonatal rats from their mother (MS) suppresses basal ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) synthesis and tissue ODC response to trophic factors. This effect in the pup is caused by absence of maternal tactile stimulation (touch) but not from lack of maternal nutrients (food). This study was performed(More)
Allicin is a major component of garlic, extracted as an oily liquid. The present study was designed to investigate the beneficial effects of allicin on traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) in mice, and whether the effects are mediated via regulation of the heat shock protein 70 (HSP70), v‑akt murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog 1 (Akt) and inducible nitric(More)
We have previously shown that intracerebroventricular administration of relatively low doses of beta-endorphin suppresses basal levels of hepatic ODC activity as well as tissue ODC responsiveness to administered insulin in developing rats. Using Northern blotting analysis, the current studies examine whether these effects of CNS beta-endorphin may be(More)
