Changes of a-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA) receptor expression could impacts the viability of neurons and brain levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) expression in the key brain structures in the pathophysiology of depressive disorder. In the present study, chronic unpredictable mild

NF-E2 P45-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a key transcription factor that controls genes encoding cytoprotective and detoxifying enzymes through antioxidant response elements (AREs) in their regulatory regions. We reported recently that retinoid X receptor alpha (RXRα) inhibits Nrf2 function by

Autologous, patient-specific, monocyte-derived dendritic cell (MoDC) vaccines have been successfully applied in the clinical studies so far. However, the routine application of this strategy has been hampered by the difficulties in generating sufficient numbers of DC and the poor DC

Tremendous amount of omics data being accumulated poses a pressing challenge of meta-analyzing the heterogeneous data for mining new biological knowledge. Most existing methods deal with each gene independently, thus often resulting in high false positive rates in detecting differentially

Activators of protease-activated receptors PAR-1 and PAR-2 such as thrombin and synthetic hexapeptides promote hypertrophy of isolated neonatal cardiomyocytes at pathological concentrations. Since PAR-activating proteases often show dual actions at low vs. high concentrations, the potential hypertrophic effects of low-level

Vaccination with irradiated granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF)-transduced autologous tumor cells (GVAX) has been shown to induce therapeutic antitumor immunity. However, its effectiveness is limited. We therefore attempted to improve the antitumor effect by identifying little-known key pathways in GM-CSF-sensitized

Acute liver failure (ALF) and hepatic encephalopathy (HE) can lead to an elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) and death within days. The impaired liver function increases the risks of invasive ICP monitoring, whereas noninvasive methods remain inadequate. The purpose of our

Biologic markers of immune tolerance may facilitate tailoring of immune suppression duration after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). In a cross-sectional study, peripheral blood samples were obtained from tolerant (n = 15, median 38.5 months post-HCT) and non-tolerant (n =

We previously have shown that cerebellar fastigial nucleus (FN) modulates immune function, but pathways or mechanisms underlying this immunomodulation require clarification. Herein, an anterograde and retrograde tracing of nerve tracts between the cerebellar FN and hypothalamus/thalamus was performed in rats.
