Augmenter of Liver Regeneration (ALR) regulates bile acid synthesis and attenuates bile acid-induced apoptosis via glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) inhibition

23 views | Feb 02 2021

Sara Ibrahim et al. thought that rALR might contribute to protecting hepatocytes from toxic concentrations of bile acids by down-regulating their denovo synthesis, attenuating apoptosis by activation of PI3K/Akt - GSK3β pathway and inhibition of JNK signaling. [Read the Full Post]

G ATA2 mediates the negative regulation of the prepro-thyrotropin-releasing hormone gene by liganded T3 receptor β2 in the rat hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus

17 views | Feb 02 2021

Go Kuroda et al. suggested that GATA2 transactivated the rat prepro-TRH gene and that liganded TRβ2 interfered with this activation via a tethering mechanism as in the case of the TSHβ gene. [Read the Full Post]

Scabronine G Methyl Ester Improves Memory-Related Behavior and Enhances Hippocampal Cell Proliferation and Long-Term Potentiation via the BDNF-CREB Pathway in Olfactory Bulbectomized Mice

25 views | Dec 08 2020

Osamu Nakagawasai et al. revealed the potential of SG-ME in improving memory impairments by enhancing cell proliferation and LTP via activation of the BDNF/CREB signaling pathway in neurons. [Read the Full Post]

Component of nicotine-induced intracellular calcium elevation mediated through α3- and α5-containing nicotinic acetylcholine receptors are regulated by cyclic AMP in SH-SY 5Y cells

21 views | Dec 03 2020

Tamayo Takahashi et al. suggested that α3 * and α5 * nAChR-mediated Ca2+ influx was possibly regulated by cAMP at the transcriptional level. [Read the Full Post]

Bucladesine Attenuates Spatial Learning and Hippocampal Mitochondrial Impairments Induced by 3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)

50 views | Aug 31 2020

Ghorban Taghizadeh et al. highlighted the role of cAMP/PKA signaling in MDMA-induced memory and mitochondrial defects. [Read the Full Post]

Overexpression of Fibroblast Growth factor-21 (FGF-21) Protects Mesenchymal Stem Cells Against Caspase-Dependent Apoptosis Induced by Oxidative Stress and Inflammation

206 views | Jun 22 2020

Gabriel R Linares et al. provided compelling evidence that FGF-21 played a crucial role in protecting MSCs from apoptosis induced by oxidative stress and inflammation, and merited further investigation as a strategy for enhancing the therapeutic efficacy of stem cell-based therapies.

Staurosporine and NEM Mainly Impair WNK-SPAK/OSR1 Mediated Phosphorylation of KCC2 and NKCC1

214 views | Jun 18 2020

Jinwei Zhang et al. identified phospho-sites that are responsive to staurosporine or NEM application. [Read the Full Post]

T-cell death-associated gene 8 accelerates atherosclerosis by promoting vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration

169 views | Mar 02 2020

Chen LD et al. demonstrated that Tdag8 mediated phenotype transformation, proliferation and migration of VSMCs via the cAMP/PKA signaling pathway, thus partially contributing to atherosclerosis. [Read the Full Post]

Effect of bucladesine, pentoxifylline, and H-89 as cyclic adenosine monophosphate analog, phosphodiesterase, and protein kinase A inhibitor on acute pain

222 views | Jun 09 2019

Salehi F et al. indicated PTX, H-89, and Db-cAMP affect the thermal-induced pain by probably interacting with intracellular cAMP and cGMP signaling pathways and cyclic nucleotide-dependent protein kinases. [Read the Full Post]

Upregulation of programmed cell death ligand 1 promotes resistance response in non-small-cell lung cancer patients treated with neo-adjuvant chemotherapy

1848 views | Aug 26 2018

Zhang P et al. suggested that the upregulation of PD-L1 promotes a resistance response in lung cancer cells that might be through activation of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/protein kinase B pathway and suppression of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes. The high expression of PD-L1 after NAC could be an indication of therapeutic resistance and poor prognosis in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer. [Read the Full Post]
