Osteopontin (OPN) is a secreted extracellular phosphoprotein involved in diverse biologic functions, including inflammation, cell migration, and antiapoptotic processes. Here we investigate the neuroprotective potential of OPN to reduce cell death using both in vitro and in vivo models of ischemia. We show that incubation of cortical neuron cultures with(More)
Interferons constitute the earliest immune response against viral infection. They elicit antiviral effects as well as multiple biological responses involved in cell growth regulation and immune activation. Because the interferon-induced cellular antiviral response is the primary defense mechanism against viral infection, many viruses have evolved strategies(More)
