The astroglial cell-specific glutamate transporter subtype 2 (excitatory amino acid transporter 2, GLT1) plays an important role in excitotoxicity that develops after damage to the central nervous system (CNS) is incurred. Both the protein kinase C signaling pathway and the epidermal growth factor (EGF) pathway have been suggested to participate in the(More)
Long-term depression (LTD) and long-term potentiation (LTP) at cerebellar parallel fiber-Purkinje cell (PF-PC) synapses play critical roles in motor learning. The 1 Hz stimulation at PF-PC synapses induces a postsynaptically expressed LTP that requires a postsynaptic Ca(2+) transient, phosphatases, and nitric oxide (NO). However, the mechanism underlying 1(More)
BACKGROUND Zinc distributes widely in the central nervous system, especially in the hippocampus, amygdala and cortex. The dynamic balance of zinc is critical for neuronal functions. Zinc modulates the activity of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) through the direct inhibition and various intracellular signaling pathways. Abnormal NMDAR activities have(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Clinical and laboratory studies have suggested that multi-targeting approaches against neoplastic cells could help to increase patient survival and might reduce the emergence of cells that are resistant to single-target inhibitors. Artesunate (ART) is one of the most potent(More)
Niemann-Pick type C disease (NPC) is an autosomal recessive lipidosis characterized by progressive neurodegeneration. Although several studies have revealed unusual accumulation of unesterfied cholesterol in astrocytic lysosome of NPC, pathophysiological basis of cerebellar neuronal dysfunction remains unclear. We compared parallel fiber-Purkinje cell(More)
BACKGROUND Depolarization-induced suppression of excitation (DSE) at parallel fiber-Purkinje cell synapse is an endocannabinoid-mediated short-term retrograde plasticity. Intracellular Ca(2+) elevation is critical for the endocannabinoid production and DSE. Nevertheless, how elevated Ca(2+) leads to DSE is unclear. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We(More)
Pancreatic beta cells act as glucose sensors, in which intracellular ATP ([ATP]i) are altered with glucose concentration change. The characterization of voltage-gated sodium channels under different [ATP]i remains unclear. Here, we demonstrated that increasing [ATP]i within a certain range of concentrations (2–8 mM) significantly enhanced the voltage-gated(More)
BACKGROUND The Uigur ethnic minority is the largest ethnic group in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China, and valuable resource for the study of ethnogeny. The objective of this study was to estimate the genetic diversities and forensic parameters of 30 insertion-deletion loci in Uigur ethnic group from Xinjiang Uigur Autonomous Region of China and(More)
Transferrin receptor (TFR) is an important iron transporter regulating iron homeostasis and has long been used as a marker for clathrin mediated endocytosis. However, little is known about its additional function other than iron transport in the development of central nervous system (CNS). Here we demonstrate that TFR functions as a regulator to control(More)
Breast invasive micropapillary carcinoma (IMPC) is a rare subtype of breast cancer with a high potential of lymph node metastasis, aggressive clinical behavior, and poor disease-free or overall survival. Expression of leucine zipper putative tumor suppressor 1 (LZTS1) was frequently lost or reduced in breast cancer tissues. This study investigated the(More)
