Irradiation attenuates neurogenesis and exacerbates ischemia‐induced deficits
Increased neurogenesis after cerebral ischemia suggests that functional recovery after stroke may be attributed, in part, to neural regeneration. In this study, we investigated the role ofExpand

Pyruvate administered after severe hypoglycemia reduces neuronal death and cognitive impairment.
Hypoglycemia-induced brain injury is a significant obstacle to optimal blood glucose control in diabetic patients. Severe hypoglycemia triggers a cascade of events in vulnerable neurons that mayExpand

Hypoglycemic Neuronal Death and Cognitive Impairment Are Prevented by Poly(ADP-Ribose) Polymerase Inhibitors Administered after Hypoglycemia
Severe hypoglycemia causes neuronal death and cognitive impairment. Evidence suggests that hypoglycemic neuronal death involves excitotoxicity and DNA damage. Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1)Expand

Hsp70 Overexpression Sequesters AIF and Reduces Neonatal Hypoxic/Ischemic Brain Injury
Apoptosis is implicated in neonatal hypoxic/ischemic (H/I) brain injury among various forms of cell death. Here we investigate whether overexpression of heat shock protein (Hsp) 70, an antiapoptoticExpand

Enriched environment and spatial learning enhance hippocampal neurogenesis and salvages ischemic penumbra after focal cerebral ischemia
Enriched environment (EE) has been shown to increase neurogenesis in the adult brain. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of EE and spatial learning on neurogenesis following ischemicExpand

Overexpression of Rat Heat Shock Protein 70 is Associated with Reduction of Early Mitochondrial Cytochrome c Release and Subsequent DNA Fragmentation after Permanent Focal Ischemia
Although protective effects of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) overproduction after ischemic injury have been shown both in vitro and in vivo in neurons, the mechanisms are not fully understood. TheExpand

Reduction of caspase-8 and -9 cleavage is associated with increased c-FLIP and increased binding of Apaf-1 and Hsp70 after neonatal hypoxic/ischemic injury in mice overexpressing Hsp70.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Caspase-8 and caspase-9 are essential proteases of the extrinsic and intrinsic apoptotic pathways, respectively. We investigated whether neuroprotection associated withExpand

Overexpression of Rat Heat Shock Protein 70 Reduces Neuronal Injury after Transient Focal Ischemia, Transient Global Ischemia, or Kainic Acid-induced Seizures
OBJECTIVETransgenic (Tg) mice overexpressing rat heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) demonstrated less infarction than did wild-type (WT) littermates after permanent focal cerebral ischemia. The purpose ofExpand

Hypoglycemia induces transient neurogenesis and subsequent progenitor cell loss in the rat hippocampus.
Neurogenesis after brain injury not only leads to the replacement of damaged cells but might also contribute to functional recovery, suggesting the possibility of endogenous neural repair. WeExpand

Acidosis Causes Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress and Caspase-12-Mediated Astrocyte Death
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress leads to activation of caspase-12, which in turn can lead to activation of caspase-3 and cell death. Here we report that transient acidosis induces ER stress andExpand
