Concomitant with structural changes in the developing brain, using in situ hybridization analysis, we detect decreases in genes expressed in the eye, fore and midbrain regions of the brain including pax2, pax6, otx2 and ephA4.
A review of published reports on neuroprotection in spinal cord injury.
Bucureşti, Romania. In Spinal Cord, 2009
RESULTS: There have been identified many molecules, primarily expressed by heterogenous glial and neural subpopulations of cells, which are directly or indirectly critical for tissue damaging/sparing/re-growth inhibiting, angiogenesis and neural plasticity, and also various substances/energy vectors with regenerative properties, such as MAG (myelin-associated glycoprotein), Omgp (oligodendrocyte myelin glycoprotein), KDI (synthetic: Lysine-Asparagine-Isoleucine 'gamma-1 of Laminin Kainat Domain'), Nogo (Neurite outgrowth inhibitor), NgR (Nogo protein Receptor), the Rho signaling pathway (superfamily of 'Rho-dopsin gene-including neurotransmitter-receptors'), EphA4 (Ephrine), GFAP (Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein), different subtypes of serotonergic and glutamatergic receptors, antigens, antibodies, immune modulators, adhesion molecules, scavengers, neurotrophic factors, enzymes, hormones, collagen scar inhibitors, remyelinating agents and neurogenetic/plasticity inducers, all aiming to preserve/re-establish the morphology and functional connections across the lesion site.
