Glucose metabolism is essential for most mammalian neurons, and the passage of glucose across cell membranes is mainly facilitated by glucose transporter 3 (GLUT3). In ischemia/reperfusion injured brains, increase of IGF-1 secretion and GLUT3 up-regulation, are regarded as protective processes. Recent works have shown that various growth factors and(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of adenovirus-mediated transfection of PC12 cells with glucose transporter 3 after ischemic injury. The results of flow cytometry and TUNEL showed that exogenous glucose transporter 3 significantly suppressed PC12 cell apoptosis induced by ischemic injury. The results of isotopic scintiscan and western blot assays(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine if (+/-)-1-(2, 5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI)-induced wet dog shakes (WDS) required the involvement of nitric oxide synthases (NOS). Systemic administration of the general NOS inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), but not its d-isomer, and the neuronal NOS (nNOS) inhibitor(More)
