The type-II TGF beta receptor mediates many of the biological responses to TGF beta. An examination of the expression of the type-II TGF beta receptor during mouse embryogenesis therefore provides specific information about the role of TGF beta during embryogenesis than has been available to date. We have isolated the genomic murine homologue of the human(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results in neuronal apoptosis, autophagic cell death and necroptosis. Necroptosis is a newly discovered caspases-independent programmed necrosis pathway which can be triggered by activation of death receptor. Previous works identified that necrostatin-1 (NEC-1), a specific necroptosis inhibitor, could reduce tissue damage and(More)
Plasmalemma permeability plays an important role in the secondary neuronal death induced by traumatic brain injury (TBI). Previous works showed that Poloxamer 188 (P188) could restore the intactness of the plasma membrane and play a cytoprotective action. However, the roles of P188 in blood–brain barrier (BBB) integrity and TBI-induced neural cell death are(More)
AIM To investigate the role of extracellular-signal regulated kinase (ERK) cascade on cerebral ischemia and ischemic preconditioning in hippocampal neuron. METHODS Male gerbils were randomly divided into sham group (SH), ischemia/reperfusion group (I/ R), ischemia preconditioning group (IP), specific antagonist of ERK-PD98059 (PD), solvent control groups(More)
