TIP39: a new neuropeptide and PTH2-receptor agonist from hypothalamus
Activation by parathyroid hormone (PTH) and peripheral distribution the of PTH2 receptor (PTH2-R) are well described. Highest expression of PTH2-R is found in the brain, where PTH synthesis isExpand

Cyclooxygenase-2-deficient mice are resistant to 1-methyl-4-phenyl1, 2, 3, 6-tetrahydropyridine-induced damage of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra
Cyclooxygenases (COX), key enzymes in prostanoid biosynthesis, may represent important therapeutic targets in various neurodegenerative diseases. In the present study, we explored the role of COX inExpand

Tenascin-R Plays a Role in Neuroprotection via Its Distinct Domains That Coordinate to Modulate the Microglia Function*
Microglia are one of the main cell types activated by brain injury. In the present study, we have investigated how domains of the extracellular matrix molecule tenascin-R (TN-R) modulate microgliaExpand

A novel smad nuclear interacting protein, SNIP1, suppresses p300-dependent TGF-beta signal transduction.
Members of the transforming growth factor-beta superfamily play critical roles in controlling cell growth and differentiation. Effects of TGF-beta family ligands are mediated by Smad proteins. ToExpand

Sorting Nexin 6, a Novel SNX, Interacts with the Transforming Growth Factor-β Family of Receptor Serine-Threonine Kinases*
Sorting nexins (SNX) comprise a family of proteins with homology to several yeast proteins, including Vps5p and Mvp1p, that are required for the sorting of proteins to the yeast vacuole. Human SNX1,Expand

Bone marrow stromal cells of transgenic mice can improve the cognitive ability of an Alzheimer's disease rat model
This study investigated the effects of bone marrow stromal cells transplantation on Alzheimer's disease (AD). Bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) were obtained from the bone marrow of transgenic miceExpand

Electro-acupuncture induced NGF, BDNF and NT-3 expression in spared L6 dorsal root ganglion in cats subjected to removal of adjacent ganglia
This study evaluated the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) on the NGF, BDNF and NT-3 expression in spared L6 dorsal root ganglion (DRG) in cats subjected to bilateral removal of L1-L5 and L7-S2 DRG,Expand

Effect of Electroacupuncture on Neurotrophin Expression in Cat Spinal Cord after Partial Dorsal Rhizotomy
Neuroplasticity of the spinal cord following electroacupuncture (EA) has been demonstrated although little is known about the possible underlying mechanism. This study evaluated the effect of EA onExpand

Electroacupuncture Induced Spinal Plasticity is Linked to Multiple Gene Expressions in Dorsal Root Deafferented Rats
The underlying mechanism for electroacupuncture (EA) associated functional improvement in patients suffering from spinal cord injury (SCI) is largely unknown. Collateral sprouting is one plausibleExpand

MicroRNA-127 targeting of mitoNEET inhibits neurite outgrowth, induces cell apoptosis and contributes to physiological dysfunction after spinal cord transection
Neuroregeneration and apoptosis are two important pathophysiologic changes after spinal cord injury (SCI), but their underlying mechanisms remain unclear. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a crucial role inExpand
