Constitutively active calcineurin mediates delayed neuronal death through Fas-ligand expression via activation of NFAT and FKHR transcriptional activities in mouse brain ischemia.


We recently demonstrated that a constitutively active form of calcineurin (CaN) is generated by calpain-mediated limited proteolysis following brain ischemia. The calpain-induced CaN activation mediated delayed neuronal death through translocation of nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFAT) into nuclei after brain ischemia. We also previously demonstrated… (More)
