Retinal oxygen distribution and the role of neuroglobin.
Oxford, United Kingdom. In J Math Biol, Oct 2015
It has been suggested that the protein neuroglobin (Ngb), which is found in high concentrations within the retina, may help to maintain an adequate supply of oxygen via the processes of transport and storage.
Neuroglobin - recent developments.
In Biomol Concepts, 2014
Neuroglobin (Ngb), a monomeric hexacoordinated heme protein of 17 kDa, was identified in 2000 in the nervous system.
Use of vanilloids in urologic disorders.
In Prog Drug Res, 2013
This chapter examines the literature describing the use of vanilloid receptor agonists in the treatment of the following urological disorders: neurogenic bladder (NGB), overactive bladder (OAB), and interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS).
Structure and function of heme proteins in non-native states: a mini-review.
Hengyang, China. In J Inorg Biochem, 2013
Although adopting proper native states is very important for these functions, progresses in representative heme proteins, including cytochrome c (cyt c), cytochrome b5 (cyt b5), myoglobin (Mb), neuroglobin (Ngb), cytochrome P450 (CYP) and heme-based sensor proteins such as CO sensor CooA, showed that various native functions, or new functions evolved, are also closely associated with non-native states.
Circadian behaviour in neuroglobin deficient mice.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Plos One, 2011
Genetic elimination of neuroglobin evokes an increased behavioural response to light concomitant with increased Per1 gene expression in the suprachiasmatic nucleus.
A vertebrate globin expressed in the brain.
Mainz, Germany. In Nature, 2000
The paper describes the discovery of neuroglobin, the oxygen-binding properties (P50 = 1-2 Torr), and its preferential expression in the mouse brain.
