Selective activation of α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChRα7) inhibits muscular degeneration in mdx dystrophic mice.
We used mdx mice with 3 weeks-old at the height myonecrosis, and C57 nAChRα7(+/+) wild-type and nAChRα7(-/-) knockout mice with muscular injury induced with 60µL 0.5% bupivacaine (bp) in the gastrocnemius muscle. Pharmacological treatment included selective nAChRα7 agonist PNU282987 (0.3mg/kg and 1....

Neural effect of mental fatigue on physical fatigue: a magnetoencephalography study.
We sought to clarify the neural effect of mental fatigue on physical fatigue using magnetoencephalography (MEG) and classical conditioning techniques. Eleven right-handed volunteers participated in this study. On the first day, participants performed fatigue-inducing maximum handgrip trials for 10 m...

Metabolic and transmitter changes in core and penumbra after middle cerebral artery occlusion in mice
Brain Research 1312:101 (2010)We have induced permanent MCAO in mice that were implanted with a microdialysis probe in either striatum or hippocampus. Immediately after the onset of ischemia, glucose levels dropped to < 10% of basal values in the striatum while they dropped to 50%, and recovered thereafter, in hippocampus....
WITHDRAWN: Transplantation of bone mesenchymal stem cells containing the nerve growth factor gene in adult rat brain with Fimbria Fornix les...
We examined whether nerve growth factor (NGF) improve BMSCs viability in the brain with Fimbria-Fornix lesion (FF). After transduction of NGF gene via recombinant retroviral vectors, the rat BMSCs were transformed into the NGF-GFP positive BMSCs, nearly 100% of cells expressed NGF. After transplante...
Characterization of human dopamine responsive protein DRG-1 that binds to p75NTR-associated cell death executor NADE.
Expression of human dopamine responsive gene-1 (DRG-1) is up-regulated in response to treatment of dopamine in the rat astrocytes. However, its functions are not clear up to now. In the presented studies, DRG-1 was identified to be a conserved gene in the vertebrate and expressed abundantly in human...
Involvement of CGRP and CGRP1 receptor in nociception in the nucleus accumbens of rats.
The present study was performed to investigate the role of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and its antagonist CGRP8-37 on nociception in the nucleus accumbens of rats. Hindpaw withdrawal latencies (HWLs) to noxious stimulation induced by hot plate and Randall Selitto tests were measured. The...
Quantitative autoradiography of [3H]forskolin binding sites in post-mortem brain staged for Alzheimer's disease neurofibrillary changes and ...
We used autoradiography to study [3H]forskolin binding to sections of entorhinal cortex and hippocampus from 23 cases staged for AD pathology according to Braak and Braak [Acta Neuropathol. 82 (1991) 239-259]. This protocol defines six stages according to neurofibrillary changes, which start in the...
Effects of stobadine, melatonin, and other antioxidants on hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced synaptic transmission failure in rat hippocampal sl...
We assume the following rank order of potency: U-74389G > stobadine > melatonin >> trolox. Our findings suggest that stobadine as well as trolox, U-74389G and melatonin, antioxidants with remarkably different chemical structures, exerted neuroprotective activity, probably determined by antioxidative...
