We demonstrate that tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and its inhibitors contribute to neurite outgrowth in the central nervous system (CNS) after treatment of stroke with multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). In vivo, administration of MSCs to mice subjected to middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAo) significantly increased activation of tPA and(More)
Proneuronal basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor, neurogenin 1 (Ngn1), regulates neuronal differentiation during development of the cerebral cortex. Akt mediates proneuronal bHLH protein function to promote neuronal differentiation. Here, we show that recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) significantly increased Akt activity and Ngn1 mRNA(More)
