Enhanced expression of Harvey ras induced by serum deprivation in cultured astrocytes.

Abstract

Trophic deprivation contributes to astrocyte damage that occurs in acute and chronic neurodegenerative disorders. Unraveling the underlying mechanisms may pave way to novel cytoprotective strategies. Cultured mouse astrocytes responded to trophic deprivation with a large and transient increase in the expression of p21(ras), which was secondary to an… (More)
