The first morphological sign of testicular differentiation is the formation of testis cords. Prior to cord formation, newly specified Sertoli cells establish adhesive junctions, and condensation of somatic cells along the surface epithelium of the genital ridge occurs. Here, we...

Recently, we provided a technique of chronic high-frequency electric stimulation (HFES) of the right inferior ganglionated plexus for ventricular rate control during atrial fibrillation in dogs and humans. In these experiments, we observed a decrease of the intrinsic ventricular rate...

Nerve growth factor (NGF), the prototypic member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors, exerts both stimulatory and inhibitory effects on neuronal and certain non-neuronal tumors, depending on the type of tumor. It has been reported that two types of...

Sorting of intracellular G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) either to lysosomes for degradation or to plasma membrane for surface insertion and functional expression is a key process regulating signaling strength of GPCRs across the plasma membrane in adult mammalian cells. However, little...

The precursor form of the nerve growth factor (proNGF), forms a heterotrimeric complex with the receptors p75 and sortilin; this complex has been implicated in neuron cell death. However, it is not known whether proNGF and the receptors p75 and...

Early childhood is a critical period for development, and early life stress may increase the risk of gastrointestinal diseases including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In rodents, neonatal maternal separation (NMS) induces bowel dysfunctions that resemble IBS. However, the underlying mechanisms...

Sympathetic nerve sprouting (SNS) has been shown to occur after myocardial infarction (MI) and heart failure (HF) and is known to be responsible for the development of lethal arrhythmias. During MI or HF intracardiac cells are exposed to increased mechanical...

Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) is a target tissue derived neurotrophin required for normal sympathetic neuron survival and target tissue innervation. NGF signaling regulates gene expression in sympathetic neurons, which in turn mediates critical aspects of neuron survival, axon extension and...

Previous studies demonstrated that interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and nerve growth factor (NGF) increase synthesis of substance P (SP) in airway neurons both after ozone (O3) exposure and by direct application. It was postulated that NGF mediates O3-induced IL-1β effects on SP....

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm disorder and a major cause of stroke. Unfortunately, current therapies for AF are suboptimal, largely because the molecular mechanisms underlying AF are poorly understood. Since the autonomic nervous system is thought...

The Journal of comparative neurology, 497(6), 898-909 (2006-06-28)
To address the hypothesis that reactive astrocytes in the basal ganglia of an animal model of Parkinson's disease serve neurotrophic roles, we studied the expression pattern of neurotrophic factors in the basal ganglia of C57/Bl mice that had been treated...

Periodontitis is characterized by periodontal tissue destruction, including the alveolar bone. One of its critical components is the release of pro-inflammatory neuropeptides from sensory nerve endings innervating the periodontium. Since nerve growth factor (NGF) has been reported to up-regulate neuropeptides...

Migration of HIV infected cells into the CNS is associated with a spectrum of neurological disorders, ranging from milder forms of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) to HIV-associated dementia (HAD). These neuro-psychiatric syndromes are related to the neurodegenerative pathology triggered by...

The Journal of allergy and clinical immunology, 117(3), 583-589 (2006-03-09)
Understanding the complex pathophysiology of allergic diseases has been a main challenge of clinical and experimental research for many years. It is well known that the allergic inflammation triggers neuronal dysfunction and structural changes in the diseased tissues such as...

During development, motoneurons (MNs) undergo a highly stereotyped, temporally and spatially defined period of programmed cell death (PCD), the result of which is the loss of 40-50% of the original neuronal population. Those MNs that survive are thought to reflect...

Previous studies demonstrated exercise-induced modulation of neurotrophins, such as Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). Yet, no study that we are aware of has examined their change as a function of different training paradigms. In addition, the...

Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a homodimer that binds to two distinct receptor types, TrkA and p75, to support survival and differentiation of neurons. The high-affinity binding on the cell surface is believed to involve a heteroreceptor complex, but its...

While aberrant activation of microglial cells was evidently involved in neuroinflammation and neurotoxicity in the neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, objective of study was to address if activated microglias deliver their effect by releasing pro-neurotrophins. By in...

It is considered that two molecular forms of nerve growth factor (NGF), that is 7S NGF and 2.5S NGF have the identical neurotrophic effect on neurons. We now report that 7S NGF has different biological activities from 2.5S NGF in...

Neurons are extraordinarily large and highly polarized cells that require rapid and efficient communication between cell bodies and axons over long distances. In peripheral neurons, transcripts are transported along axons to growth cones, where they are rapidly translated in response...

KIF1Bβ, a member of the kinesin superfamily of motor proteins, is a haploinsufficient tumor suppressor mapped to chromosome 1p36.2, which is frequently deleted in neural crest-derived tumors, including neuroblastoma and pheochromocytoma. While KIF1Bβ acts downstream of the nerve growth factor...
