Rho-Kinase Inhibitor, Fasudil, Prevents Neuronal Apoptosis via the Akt Activation and PTEN Inactivation in the Ischemic Penumbra of Rat Brain


Recently, some studies suggested that inhibition of Rho-kinase (ROCK) prevented cerebral ischemia injury through inhibiting inflammatory reaction, increasing cerebral blood flow, modulating the neuronal actin cytoskeleton polymerization, and preventing tau hyperphosphorylation and p25/CDK5 increase. However, there is little information regarding the effects… (More)
