The aim of this study was to investigate whether co-expression of midkine (MK) and pleiotrophin (PTN) has prognostic relevance in human gliomas. Immunohistochemistry was used to investigate the expression of MK and PTN proteins in 168 patients with gliomas. The levels of MK and PTN mRNA in glioma tissues and paratumor tissues were evaluated in 45 paired(More)
Ghrelin stimulates growth hormone release and cell proliferation, which strongly supports a significant role for this peptide in the control of growth hormone-releasing adenomas function and growth. Nitric oxide can influence the stimulatory effects of ghrelin on growth hormone secretion in growth hormone-releasing adenomas. However, the effect of nitric(More)
The pathogenesis of glioma is unclear. The disturbance of the apoptosis process plays a critical role in glioma growth. Factors regulating the apoptosis process are to be further understood. This study aims to investigate the role of protease activated receptor-2 (PAR2) in regulation the apoptosis process in glioma cells. The results showed that U87 cells(More)
