Selective conversion of fibroblasts into peripheral sensory neurons.
Los Angeles, United States. In Nat Neurosci, 24 Dec 2014
These neurons are divided into three functional classes (nociceptors/pruritoceptors, mechanoreceptors and proprioceptors) that are distinguished by their selective expression of TrkA, TrkB or TrkC receptors, respectively.
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.
Transcriptional Evidence for the Role of Chronic Venlafaxine Treatment in Neurotrophic Signaling and Neuroplasticity Including also Glutatmatergic- and Insulin-Mediated Neuronal Processes.
Budapest, Hungary. In Plos One, Dec 2013
Simultaneously, VLX activated the expression of genes involved in neurotrophic signaling (Ntrk2, Ntrk3), glutamatergic transmission (Gria3, Grin2b and Grin2a), neuroplasticity (Camk2g/b, Cd47), synaptogenesis (Epha5a, Gad2) and cognitive processes (Clstn2).
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.
