Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) exerts angiogenic and mitogenic properties in human tissue. Since changes in ion currents modulate essential Ca2+-dependent intracellular pathways in endothelial cells, we have investigated a possible contribution of Ca2+-activated K+ channels (BKCa) on bFGF-induced endothelial cell proliferation. The patch-clamp(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of combination therapy with methylprednisolone (MP) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) on axonal remyelination and functional recovery after spinal cord injury in rats. METHODS Forty-five rats were randomly divided into three groups: Group A received MP and BDNF; group B received MP and cerebrospinal fluid(More)
