Neuroglobin, Ngb
This gene encodes an oxygen-binding protein that is distantly related to members of the globin gene family. It is highly conserved among other vertebrates. It is expressed in the central and peripheral nervous system where it may be involved in increasing oxygen availability and providing protection under hypoxic/ischemic conditions.

Dopamine D3 receptor binding of (18) F-fallypride: Evaluation using in vitro and in vivo PET imaging studies.
Pan et al., Irvine, United States. In Synapse, Dec 2015
Rat slices were also treated with BP 897 (68-fold D3R selective partial agonist) and NGB 2904 (56-fold D3R selective antagonist).
Dopamine D3 receptor antagonism contributes to blonanserin-induced cortical dopamine and acetylcholine efflux and cognitive improvement.
Meltzer et al., Chicago, United States. In Pharmacol Biochem Behav, Nov 2015
Here we determined the ability of blonanserin, the D3 antagonist NGB 2904, and the typical APD, haloperidol, a D2 antagonist, to enhance neurotransmitter efflux in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) and dSTR of mice, and to ameliorate the scPCP-induced deficit in NOR in rats.
Retinal oxygen distribution and the role of neuroglobin.
Byrne et al., 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.
Effects of intermittent hypobaric hypoxia preconditioning on the expression of neuroglobin and Bcl-2 in the rat hippocampal CA1 area following ischemia-reperfusion.
Liu et al., Xining, China. In Genet Mol Res, 2014
This study was aimed at understanding the effect of intermittent hypobaric hypoxia preconditioning (IHHP) on neuroglobin (NGB) and Bcl-2 expression in the hippocampal CA1 region of rats following global cerebral ischemia-reperfusion. Wistar rats were randomly divided into sham, IHHP control, global cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (IR group), and IHHP+IR groups.

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.
Wang et al., 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.
