Proteomic profile of an acute partial bladder outlet obstruction.
Edmonton, Canada. In Can Urol Assoc J, 31 Mar 2015
Statistically significant increases in protein quantities were seen in 3 proteins related to endoplasmic reticulum stress: GRP-78 (3.66-fold), RhoA (1.90-fold), and RhoA-GDP (1.95-fold), and 2 cytoskeleton molecules: actin (1.7-fold) and tubulin a/b (3.01-fold).
Transmission of Pruriceptive Signals.
Bethesda, United States. In Handb Exp Pharmacol, Dec 2014
Current data reveal that DRG neurons and spinal cord cells use a remarkably selective set of transmitters to convey pruritic information from the periphery to the brain: glutamate and Nppb are released from primary itch-sensory cells; these molecules activate secondary spinal cord pruriceptive-specific neurons, which in turn utilize Grp to activate tertiary pruriceptive-selective neurons.
Insect prophenoloxidase: the view beyond immunity.
Shanghai, China. In Front Physiol, 2013
The insect PPO activation pathway incorporates several important proteins, including pattern-recognition receptors (PGRP, β GRP, and C-type lectins), serine proteases, and serine protease inhibitors (serpins).
