were cultured at 37[degrees]C and 5 % C[O.
Steroid hormone receptors and steroid action in rat glial cell
of the central and peripheral nervous system.
They found that a molecule, called proNGF, activates glial cells
that kill neurons.
The Cypros compounds being supported by the grant are high potency inhibitors of swelling-induced, excitotoxin release from glial cells
and have been shown to be effective in pre-clinical models of stroke.
In 2008, Solace expanded its glial cell
modulator program by identifying next-generation, novel leads with attractive drug properties.
Upregulation of glial cell
line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) in the rat cochlea following noise.
Called Glial Cell
Line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, or GDNF, the drug has been shown to reverse Parkinson's disease symptoms in preclinical trials.
In addition, preliminary studies have demonstrated that kisspeptins induce changes in markers of glial cell
Imaging may also help in developing new drugs that act on the protein to reduce glial cell
activation and reduce pain, said Loggia, who was not at the meeting.
A research team from Anhui University of Chinese Medicine in China conducted their study on rats to verify the relationship between acupuncture, neurotrophic factor expression and brain cell structural changes and found that the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and glial cell
line-derived neurotrophic factor also increased in the ventral tegmental area following acupuncture.
whose Rett research focuses on astrocytes, another type of glial cell
impaired by mutations in MECP2, comments, "A fascinating aspect of these findings is the data suggesting that deficits in the engulfing properties of microglia are a crucial aspect of Rett neuropathology.
These cells become activated and glial cell
activation plays a key role in the destruction of neurons.
