Autophagy was activated in injured astrocytes and mildly decreased cell survival following glucose and oxygen deprivation and focal cerebral ischemia
The present study evaluated autophagy activation in astrocytes and its contribution to astrocyte injury induced by cerebral ischemia and hypoxia. Focal cerebral ischemia was induced by permanentExpand

Endogenous level of TIGAR in brain is associated with vulnerability of neurons to ischemic injury
In previous studies, we showed that TP53-induced glycolysis and apoptosis regulator (TIGAR) protects neurons against ischemic brain injury. In the present study, we investigated the developmentalExpand

Mean platelet volume/platelet count ratio in colorectal cancer: a retrospective clinical study
BackgroundMean platelet volume (MPV) is a marker of platelet activation. MPV and platelet count (PC) are negatively correlated, and their ratio (MPV/PC) is informative for the diagnosis of malignantExpand

Altered Intranetwork and Internetwork Functional Connectivity in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With and Without Cognitive Impairment
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with cognitive impairment. We investigated whether alterations of intranetwork and internetwork functional connectivity with T2DM progression exist, byExpand

G6PD plays a neuroprotective role in brain ischemia through promoting pentose phosphate pathway.
TIGAR-regulated pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) plays a critical role in the neuronal survival during cerebral ischemia/reperfusion. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) is a rate-limiting enzymeExpand

SPOCD1 promotes the proliferation and metastasis of glioma cells by up-regulating PTX3.
Gliomas are the most prevalent type of primary brain tumors in adults, accounting for more than 40% of neoplasms in the central nervous system. The spen paralogue and orthologue C-terminal domainExpand
