Mammary Analogue Secretory Carcinoma (MASC) of Salivary Gland in four Mexican patients.
San Fernando, Mexico. In Med Oral Patol Oral Cir Bucal, 07 Jan 2015
Tumors with some histological features consistent with MASC (N= 17, 6.7%) were studied by immunohistochemistry for mammaglobin, STAT5, and S-100 protein and four cases were positive (1.5%), thus the diagnosis of MASC was established, and these were submitted for molecular studies for ETV6-NTRK3.
NGF, BDNF, NT3, and NT4.
Seattle, United States. In Handb Exp Pharmacol, Dec 2013
Four neurotrophins, NGF, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3 (NT3), and neurotrophin-4 (NT4), regulate a wide variety of neural functions, acting upon p75NTR, TrkA, TrkB, and TrkC receptors.
Functional switch from pro-neurotrophins to mature neurotrophins.
Xi'an, China. In Curr Protein Pept Sci, Nov 2013
While mature neurotrophins exhibit neuroprotective roles via tyrosine kinase receptors (TrkA, TrkB and TrkC), the proforms of neurotrophins show totally-different biological effects that may induce apoptotic cell death of neurons by triggering p75NTR-sortilin signaling cascades.
