Expression of protein c-fos in cerebellum neurons of rats at cholestasis
Subhepatic cholestasis in rats is accompanied by an increase in the cortex cerebellum on the 2–20th days after the ligation of the common bile duct of the number of neurons with the increased c-fos-immunoreactivity, with the maximum one on the 10th day of the experiment.
The Effect of Lithium Chloride on the Levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor in the Neonatal Brain
The results show that the neuroprotective effects of LiCl treatment in the developing mammalian brain depend on the maturity level of the neonatal brain regions that are affected by the mood stabilizer.


Upstream Stimulatory Factors Are Mediators of Ca2+-Responsive Transcription in Neurons
It is found that the transcriptional activity of the USFs is regulated by Ca2+-activated signaling pathways in neurons and that theUSFs bind to the promoters of a number of neuronal activity-regulated genes in vivo, suggesting a new function for the USF in the regulation of activity-dependent transcription in neurons.
SRF mediates activity-induced gene expression and synaptic plasticity but not neuronal viability
It is shown that deletion of serum response factor in specific neuronal populations in adult mice results in profound deficits in activity-dependent immediate early gene expression, but components of upstream signaling pathways and cyclic AMP–response element binding protein (CREB)-dependent transactivation remain intact.
cAMP Response Element-Binding Protein Is a Primary Hub of Activity-Driven Neuronal Gene Expression
This study unveils the gene expression programs initiated in mouse hippocampal neurons in response to different stimuli and explores the contribution of four prominent plasticity-related transcription factors (CREB, SRF, EGR1, and FOS) to these programs.
Identification of cis-Elements and Transcription Factors Regulating Neuronal Activity-Dependent Transcription of Human BDNF Gene
The results of this study have identified the cis-elements and transcription factors regulating neuronal activity-dependent transcription of human BDNF gene and demonstrated that CRE and PasRE elements in hBDNF promoter IX are required for the induction of this promoter by neuronal activity.
Remote control of activity-dependent BDNF gene promoter-I transcription mediated by REST/NRSF.
Activity-dependent Transcriptional Activation and mRNA Stabilization for Cumulative Expression of Pituitary Adenylate Cyclase-activating Polypeptide mRNA Controlled by Calcium and cAMP Signals in Neurons*
It is found that the stability of PACAP mRNA was increased in response to Ca2+ signals but not that of activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated protein (Arc) mRNA, indicating an activity-dependent stabilization of specific mRNA species in neurons, which can antagonize the regulation mediated by cAMP signals.
Involvement of an Upstream Stimulatory Factor as Well as cAMP-responsive Element-binding Protein in the Activation of Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor Gene Promoter I*
Findings support that not only CREB but also USF1/USF2 contributes to Ca2+ signal-mediated activation of BDNF-PI through the recognition of an overlapping CRE and USF-binding element.
Differential Activation of Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor Gene Promoters I and III by Ca2+ Signals Evoked vial-type Voltage-dependent andN-Methyl-d-aspartate Receptor Ca2+Channels*
The increase in BDNF mRNA expression induced at high K+ was repressed not only by nicardipine, an antagonist for L-VDCC, but also by dl-amino-5-phosphonovalerate, an antagonists for NMDA-R, which was supported by the effects of antagonists on the Ca2+ influx.
