Upregulation of N-acetylaspartic acid alters inflammation, transcription and contractile associated protein levels in the stomach and smooth muscle contractility.
Houston, United States. In Mol Biol Rep, 2009
Incubation of rat stomach tissue with NAA 1.5 mM, 1.5 microM and 1.5 nM induced inflammatory agents TNFalpha, p38MAPK, iNOS, PKC, COX2 and ICAM3; transcription factors phospho-NF-kBp65, cjun and cfos; contractile proteins MLCK and phospho MLC; and calcium channel alpha1C and calcium channel, voltage-dependent, beta 3 subunit compared to their respective control.
Microarray analysis of hippocampal gene expression in global cerebral ischemia.
Novato, United States. In Ann Neurol, 2001
We also found coinduction of several groups of related genes that might represent functional modules within the ischemic neuronal transcriptome, including VEGF and its receptor, NRP1; the IGF1 receptor and the IGF1-binding protein IGFBP2; Rb, the Rb-binding protein E2F1, and the E2F-related transcription factor, TFDP1; the CACNB3 and CACNB4 beta-subunits of the voltage-gated calcium channel; and caspase-3 and its substrates, ACINUS, FEM1, and GSN.
