Cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1) and Urocortin (UCN) are peptides which have previously been shown to have protective effects in cardiac myocytes and which induce heat shock protein expression. CT-1 is a member of the interleukin-6 family of cytokines. UCN is a peptide expressed in the brain that binds to the corticotrophin releasing hormone receptors. In this investigation the ability of CT-1 and UCN to protect cells against a lethal stress was tested in neonatal and adult sensory neurons. CT-1 has a… CONTINUE READING
