Transplantation of neural stem cells expressing hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) improves behavioral recovery in a rat stroke model
We explored the possibility that hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha (HIF-1alpha) might contribute to the therapeutic effect of neural stem cell (NSC) transplantation in cerebral ischemia. The relativeExpand

Spatial and temporal patterns of expression of Noggin and BMP4 in embryonic and postnatal rat hippocampus.
Recent studies indicate that bone morphogenetic protein-4 (BMP4) and Noggin not only play an important role in the early development of the nervous system, but may also play a role in postnatalExpand

A combined in situ hybridization and RT-PCR method to detect spatial and temporal patterns of Noggin gene expression in embryonic and postnatal rat hippocampus.
Recent studies indicate that Noggin not only plays an important role in the early development of the nervous system, but may also plays a role in postnatal central nervous system (CNS) development.Expand

A developmental study on the expression of PDGFαR immunoreactive cells in the brain of postnatal rats
The platelet-derived growth factor-alpha receptor (PDGFalphaR) has been found specifically expressed in oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), whereas another membrane protein, NG2, has been widelyExpand

Localization and sex-difference of steroid receptor coactivator-1 immunoreactivities in the brain of adult female and male mice
Females and males are different in brain and behaviors. These differences are mediated by steroids and their nuclear receptors which require coactivators to regulate the transcription of targetExpand

Expression of Steroid Receptor Coactivator-1 Was Regulated by Postnatal Development but Not Ovariectomy in the Hippocampus of Rats
Female steroids such as estrogens and progestins, through their nuclear receptors, play important roles in regulation of the structure and function of the hippocampus. Steroid receptor coactivator-1Expand

Intriguing Roles of Hippocampus-Synthesized 17β-Estradiol in the Modulation of Hippocampal Synaptic Plasticity
Accumulated studies have shown that 17β-estradiol (E2) can be de novo synthesized in the hippocampus, and its role in the regulation of hippocampal synaptic plasticity, which is the basis of learningExpand

Regulatory effects of the JAK3/STAT1 pathway on the release of secreted phospholipase A2-IIA in microvascular endothelial cells of the injured brain
BackgroundSecreted phospholipase A2-IIA (sPLA2-IIA) is an inducible enzyme released under several inflammatory conditions. It has been shown that sPLA2-IIA is released from rat brain astrocytes afterExpand

Success rates and cost-effectiveness of antibiotic combinations for initial treatment of central-venous-line infections during total parenteral nutrition.
BACKGROUND Central-venous-line infections can be successfully treated with appropriate antibiotics, thus avoiding the need for catheter removal. Based on our experience, vancomycin, gentamicin,Expand
