The isolation of stem cells from various regions of the central nervous system has raised the possibility of using them as a donor cell source for cell transplantation, where they offer great promise for repair of the diseased brain, spinal cord, and retina. Here, we have studied the migration, integration, and differentiation of EGF-responsive neurospheres(More)
GIP (Glucose-dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide) is an important regulator of insulin secretion. The effects of truncated forms of the peptide, GIP(10-30), GIP(6-30amide) and GIP(7-30), on binding of 125I-GIP(1-42) to GIP receptors in transfected CHO-KI cells, and on cyclic AMP responses to GIP(1-42), have been studied with a view to defining further the(More)
Posttranscriptional gene regulation is governed by a network of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) that interact with regulatory elements in the mRNA to modulate multiple molecular processes, including splicing, RNA transport, RNA stability, and translation. Mounting evidence indicates that there is a hierarchy within this network whereby certain RBPs(More)
Inflammation plays a prominent role in the events following traumatic injury to the central nervous system (CNS). The initial inflammatory response is driven by mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 1β, which are produced by activated astrocytes and microglia at the site of injury. These factors are regulated post-transcriptionally by(More)
