Protein expression in dairy cows with and without subclinical hypocalcaemia.
Daqing, China. In N Z Vet J, Dec 2015
Expression of serum albumin, fibrinogen alpha chain, amyloid beta A4 proteins and neurosecretory protein VGF were increased, and expression of apolipoprotein A-II and serum amyloid A proteins were decreased in the subclinical hypocalcaemic cows compared with control cows.
Neuroendocrine Role for VGF.
Loughborough, United Kingdom. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), 2014
The vgf gene (non-acronymic) is highly conserved and was identified on the basis of its rapid induction in vitro by nerve growth factor, although can also be induced by brain-derived neurotrophic factor, and glial-derived growth factor.
Liver regeneration--the best kept secret. A model of tissue injury response.
In Rev Esp Enferm Dig, 2014
This process has been related with the tissue injury response regulators as: complement system, platelets, inflammatory cytokines(TNF-a, IL-1b, IL-6), growth factors (HGF, EGF, VGF) and anti-inflammatory factors (IL-10, TGF-b).Given its complexity and strict regulation, illustrates the unique alternative to liver failure is liver transplantation.The recent induced pluripotential cells (iPS) description and the mesenchymal stem cell (CD133+) plastic capability have aroused new prospects in the cellular therapy field.
[Research process of the neuropeptide VGF as a novel antidepressant regulatory factor].
Ningbo, China. In Nan Fang Yi Ke Da Xue Xue Bao, 2014
Studies have shown that the neuropeptide VGF participates in the regulation of hippocampal neurogenesis and neuroplasticity and also plays an important role in the regulation of neuronal proliferation and survival, suggesting that the neuropeptide VGF may be a novel regulator in antidepressant treatment.
Neuropeptides and central control of sexual behaviour from the past to the present: a review.
Cagliari, Italy. In Prog Neurobiol, 2013
However, evidence for a sexual role of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, corticotropin releasing factor, neuropeptide Y, galanin and galanin-like peptide, cholecystokinin, substance P, vasoactive intestinal peptide, vasopressin, angiotensin II, hypocretins/orexins and VGF-derived peptides are also available.
The extended granin family: structure, function, and biomedical implications.
Minneapolis, United States. In Endocr Rev, 2011
The chromogranins (chromogranin A and chromogranin B), secretogranins (secretogranin II and secretogranin III), and additional related proteins (7B2, NESP55, proSAAS, and VGF) that together comprise the granin family subserve essential roles in the regulated secretory pathway that is responsible for controlled delivery of peptides, hormones, neurotransmitters, and growth factors.
